Rogue co-creator helps pick 'Ultimate Roguelike' winner

S. Prell, @SamPrell

Participants of last month's Ultimate Roguelike Challenge game design competition had a lot of pressure on their shoulders; along with creating a game using only a tileset provided by contest organizer Christopher "Oryx" Barrett, the end result would be judged by Glenn Wichman, co-creator of the original Rogue. Other judges included Barrett and Cardinal Quest creator Ido Yehieli.

Adventuring Company by Slothwerks took home the gold, which is kind of appropriate since it's a game about trying to take home gold from a great red dragon. It's available now on Android and in-browser. The rest of the entries can be seen on the Oryx Design Lab website.
