IRDC 2017 - Any takers?
« on: June 17, 2017, 11:37:21 PM »
It's about halfway through the year and I haven't heard any chatter about IRDC 2017. I'm in the states, so I'm specifically talking about the US version but I haven't heard mention of the European one either.

The last 2 were in Atlanta and Brooklyn and I recall both being announced by now in the year. So I figure that process should probably be starting now if it's gonna happen.

I know it's an exhausting thing to organize a conference, so I imagine the previous organizers may not want to do it again. I really would like to hold one in Raleigh. However, I have no idea to get space downtown while also keeping the whole thing free. It sounds like universities are a good option, but my alma mater is a couple miles away from the downtown area. Any one want to host?  ;)

I guess I should also mention there is the Roguelike Celebration. That was a huge event last year on the west coast and it could probably fill the need for an IRDC maybe.... but it's also a much bigger group and seems less dev focused.

I would really like these events without anything roguelike related, just drinking and.. well, what else could there be? Not women, that's for sure.

Whatever you're into man. I won't judge. If you want to avoid roguelikes and women and instead drink, I'm sure you can log off and crack open a cold one with the boys any time you want.

Only three things in this world: rogueliTes, no women and drinking.
