Roguelike Celebration @@@

A celebration of roguelike games

The Roguelike Celebration is back in 2018! It will be held in San Francisco at the offices of Github on October 6th and 7th. If you'd like to speak at this year's Roguelike Celebration you can submit a talk here.

The Roguelike Celebration has taken place twice, on November 11-12 2017 (videos), and September 16, 2016 (videos), in San Francisco.

If you or your company would like to be a host or sponsor of next year's event, please send us a message at - information about sponsorship levels can be found here.

As an example of a previous update, we held a free roguelike meetup on May 17, 2016 in SF.


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!
