Roguelike Celebration, September 17 in San Francisco
Do you like roguelike computer games (such as Nethack) or games they've influenced (such as Diablo, Dwarf Fortress, and Spelunky)? (See also: past Metafilter posts.) Roguelikes are a fascinating genre of game that started in 1980, with both old and new ones still actively developed. My friends and I are organizing a one-day conference about roguelike games on September 17, 2016 in downtown San Francisco! Get a ticket here.

This is a labor of love that started happening when a few friends and I realized we all liked roguelikes. There's an International Roguelike Development Conference, but there hasn't really been an event focused on roguelike players before. So we're fixing this with a big fun celebration-conference-party. We've gathered up speakers including creators of Rogue, Dwarf Fortress, Brogue, Dungeon Crawl: Stone Soup, Kingdom of Loathing, Caves of Qud, Cogmind, and other games, along with people who write really smart things about games (such as David Craddock and Nick Montfort). We're charging for tickets so that we can cover some speaker travel costs and other event costs; we're not going to make money on this.

Come hang out with us, or tell your friends who live in the Bay Area!

I presented there! A few other Metafilter members were in the audience too! I'll put links to the talks here in comments when they're up.
