I've bundled up some short reviews of challenge failures that have some interesting features, even though they failed.

I think so. It's part of the learning process.

Making games is especially important. Experiment with a new idea, if it doesn't really pan out, that's cool. Move on to the next idea.

Indeed, learning from other people's failures (and successes) is an excellent way to improve yourself with minimal pain and suffering.

There's also a Retrospectives page on the roguelike development wiki. There's links to a few good reads, mostly from the 7DRL challenges, here.
