Episode 101: IRDC 2015 USA

This is episode 101 of Roguelike Radio, recorded live at the USA International Roguelike Developers Conference 2015. Kawa hosts a mob of roguelike developers and players reporting from the event!

Topics Discussed:
  • IRDC finally comes to America! Big thanks to Todd Page for organising :)
  • Watch recordings from the conference on Youtube (still being updated as vids get edited) or Twitch (worse quality)
  • Joys of the conference are discussed, including meeting real life roguelikers!
  • What people want to see at future conferences.
  • MUDs and MUSHes and collaborative storytelling.
  • What's the future of procedural content in AAA gaming?
  • ASCII vs tiles
  • "Screw Europe!"

Join us next time for an interview with game design academic Frank Lantz.


  1. Good stuff, the energy of the event definitely carries through well even into this which just has the audio.

  2. I love your episodes! Would you perhaps do an episode on TomeNET or online roguelikes in general? Thanks!

  3. Got a transcript? Sound quality aint good enough for my commute.

    1. Sorry, no! By the nature of the recording we were never going to get good sound quality for this, I'm afraid :(
