The 2009 Seven Day Roguelike Challenge had an astoundingly large turnout with an even more impressive output. With 45 entrants and 25 successes this has been by far the most active 7DRL competition to date. The official contest ran from March 7th to March 15th, while a number of contestants chose their own start time. Cymon's Games reviewed and Cymon's Games visitors voted on their choices for Best in Show, Visual Presentation, and Technical Achievement. John Harris has also reviewed all of this year's entries for his @Play column on GameSetWatch. Here is a list (in alphabetical order) of the official participants:
