@Play, my old four-year column on roguelike games, play, history, theory and development, has returned.

Super excellent! Your column was the only regular game design column I was ever able to stick with. There's a weird stridency or myopia that has turned me away from other game design writing and podcasts, whereas @Play is heavy on information and history and always leaves me with a feeling of edification. Welcome back!

I enjoyed it and, of all things, the 1 year old enjoyed the playthru video of the original game. Go figure.

Thanks guys, I'll try to keep it on the same level as before. I am still considering another site for this, not just for financial reasons, but also because I'm starting to get the feeling that Google's stewardship of Blogspot is starting to turn sour.

This is such good news. @Play taught me a lot about game design.

@Play 81 is on the item ID system of Rogue itself.

Whew! Finally, @Play 82 is up, on the talks of IRDC US 2015. I would never have made it there if it weren't for LogicalDash!
