- The 7DRL London Afterparty (if you missed it you missed out!)
- Yuji Kosugi's Versus Time, a 2-4 player local multiplayer roguelike, turn-based but with a chess clock system, an impressive success for a first time 7DRLer
- Paul Jeffries' Rogue's Eye, a first person Dungeon Master style game with roguelike gameplay (which was a big break away from what he originally started working on)

- Tom Ford's FlatlineRL, a combat and positioning focused roguelike with a lives system, somewhat inspired by Hotline Miami
- Jeff Lait's Malachite Dreams, an exploration game that seeds itself from your character name, with procedural puzzles that require physical note-taking
- Darren Grey's Mosaic, a map manipulation game with a roughly coded procedural sound engine that generates music based on how you've filled in the map
- How sound can add to a game, and some of the challenges in getting this to work well for games
- Mucking about with random sounds on bfxr can produce good results
- Particle effects, woo!
- Lessons learned, things we're proud of, and stuff that helps build for the future
- David Craddock's daily interviews with several 7DRLers, and the advantage of having to give brief daily updates to someone else and regularly reflecting on plans

- Remembering the failures, some of which looked very hopeful - there are some overviews from Eben and gim
- Further discussion on RogueTemple and 7drl.org
