Roguelike Developers meet during GDC 2018

1

SAN FRANCISCO — In what can only be described as a brilliantly executed procedurally generated meetup (disguised as a chaotic, improvised and unplanned mess), over 20 professional roguelike developers attending the 2018 Game Developers Conference met at Yerba Buena Gardens last March 21 to talk about their current projects, share stories of development and have a fun time together.

Among the participants were the developers of Dwarf Fortress, Jupiter Hell, Caves of Qud, Cardinal Quest, Tangledeep, and Ananias, as well as the main organizer of the Roguelike Celebration event.

I hope next year’s output will be closer to what a real planner would do and more believable too.“, said Santiago Zapata, designer of the procedural generator used for the event.
