Roguelike Celebration @@@

A celebration of roguelike games

The Roguelike Celebration is a community-generated weekend of talks, games, and conversations about roguelikes and related topics, including procedural generation and game design. It's for fans, players, developers, scholars, and everyone else!

We held a virtual event on October 3-4, 2020

Talk list and video recordings

Roguelike games have been part of gaming culture for over 30 years and they have a deep and special place in our hearts. Over the last five years hundreds of roguelike fans got together to celebrate these games and their rich history, so we did it again - this time virtually!

To make things feel particularly rogue-y, we hosted this year’s conference in our own custom-built multiplayer game/chat space. For the first time ever, all you needed to attend Roguelike Celebration was a web browser!

Besides the streamed talks, we had interactive performances, a game showcase for people to play and share their favorite games, time for 'unconferences' for smaller presentations and workshops, and a bunch of fun creative content crafted just for the conference!

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 is for all of us — the players!
