Roguelike games have been part of gaming culture for over 30 years! They have a deep and special place in our hearts. There are so many fans across age groups and around the world that there should be a place for all of them to get together and celebrate these unique games.

We were inspired to do this by the International Roguelike Development Conference — and instead of a focus on development, this was for all of us — the players!
