• Seven Day Roguelike 2019: Date Is Chosen!

    From Jeff Lait@21:1/5 to All on Wed Jan 2 18:22:14 2019
    The week has been chosen for the Fifteenth Annual 7DRL Challenge!

    Rather than vote for the date, we now follow a simple rule to select
    the date which matches most of the historically voted for periods.
    A quick check is done in the twilight days of the year so we can start
    the new year with an announcement on the first Wednesday!

    The rules are:

    On the first Wednesday of the year the date will be announced.

    The date will *usually* be the first full week in March. Specifically,
    the 9-day period starting from the first Saturday of March.

    The exception will be if GDC, or some future equally important conference,
    is scheduled in that interval. In this case we will delay the challenge
    a week and make any such delay known by the first Wednesday of the year.

    Enough long-winded pre-amble! So when is it this year?

    The week for the Seven Day Roguelike Challenge has been chosen!

    Within the week of March 2nd to March 10th, you are hereby challenged to write a roguelike in 168 hours!

    To participate, follow these simple steps:

    1) Any time on March 2nd or March 10th (as measured in your time zone), register your roguelike.
    2) Write a roguelike.
    3) After 168 hours, if you have completed a playable roguelike, add your download link to the registration site! If not, set your status to failed and we will all commiserate and agree that given a few scant more hours, it could have been great.

    The intent is to use itch.io again as the host for the 7DRL.

    In case everything fails and there is no site to register at,
    use rec.games.roguelike.development as a backup.

    Good Luck!
