NYPLarcade Teen: Spooky Action Roguelikes
NYPLarcade Teen is an opportunity for teens to play, watch, and discuss independent, experimental, and thought-provoking games in a library setting. Think of it as a book club, but for video games. Our first series at Muhlenberg Library will focus on the roguelike genre.
The name "roguelike" comes from the 1980 dungeon crawler Rogue, which was developed for Unix, had procedurally-generated levels, and inspired other classics like Hack and Nethack. The general features are: permadeath (the player only has one life), a randomly-generated world, limited resources, and complexity through offering the player a wide variety of different items.
All events listed take place in the community room of the Muhlenberg Library and begin at 4 p.m. For ages 12 to 18.
