Speaking at International Roguelike Developer Conference 2015

On June 27th-28th, there will be a two day unconference on Roguelike Games at the National Video Game Arcade in Nottingham. IRDC has been running since 2008 and each year has taken place in a different country, but this year two unconferences have been organised, with the other one being in Atlanta back on May 30th.

UltimaRatioRegum, one of the many modern day roguelikes likely to make an appearance.

Today I can confirm that I will be one of thirteen speakers at the IRDC, where my talk is titled “Creating a Procedural Level Editor”. I will be talking about the development of my dissertation project, the Procedural Level Editor, which I initially wrote about more than two weeks ago. The talk will be on the Saturday, and there will be a public showing on Sunday where attendees will be able to play a load of classic and modern Roguelikes. More information about the conference itself can either be found on the organiser’s page here, or on the IRDC Europe page on RogueBasin.

If you want to watch the talks, but do not have the means to travel to Nottingham, not to worry, as with the Atlanta Conference, the conference will be streamed live so you can watch it all. I shall pass around the link nearer the time of the event.
