Confirmed Participation


I propose we dub this the International Roguelike Development Conference 2008, or IRDC 2008 for short. No doubt conflicts with a half-dozen other industry groups, but you have to start somewhere... --JeffLait 05:24, 29 July 2008 (CEST)

Maybe some more interesting name, like Tailoring Roguelikes: International Conference on Roguelike Development (TRICoRD). (Although I think a better acronym could be found.) --R2 16:05, 29 July 2008 (CEST)

Society for the Advancement of Roguelike Games and Endeavors (SARGE)

A Multinational Populace Helping to Orchestrate Roguelike Awareness (AMPHORA)

Developer's Union for the Promotion of Roguelike Endeavors (DUPRE)

--Njerpe 22:07, 6 August 2008 (CEST)
