Just in case there are people reading this post who don't know what a Roguelike is, let me just explain real quick. A Roguelike is a genre of game that involves exploring randomly generated dungeons and finding randomly placed items. Aside from the randomness, the other big thing behind the genre is perma-death. If you are killed in a Roguelike game then usually you must go back to the very start. This usually means that games in the genre are kind of short but make up for their length with extremely challenging game play and an ever changing experience.
The basic rules are as follows: each player takes a turn at one of the games and if they die they have to take a drink. If they succeed in clearing the game then all the other players take a drink. Of course, this event is being done for charity so if we receive a donation during the event the we ALL take a drink.
The games that I have currently picked for the event are
-The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth
- FTL: Faster Than Light
-Crypt of the Necrodancer
Additions may be made or the list of core games may be changed. If there is a game you'd like to see then please leave a comment or let us know on stream during the event. Each game will also have game specific rules that will be announced during the stream and can be donated for over the course of the evening.
Please keep an eye on the Facebook group and my twitter for more updates regarding the event.
