Junethack 2013 – the 3rd NetHack Cross-Variant Summer Tournament

The third installment of the annual NetHack Cross-Variant Summer Tournament called Junethack has started on Saturday June 1st 2013 at midnight UTC and will be running until the end of June.

This year’s installment features additional cross variant achievements for reaching some goals in all or half of the variants, new clan trophies (logarithmic points, most Medusa kills, most games with all conducts broken), a (rudimentary) mobile version of the site, and last but not least, the UnNetHack 5 release candidate.

This tournament is trying to appeal not only to the hardcore serial ascenders but also to players that get constantly mangled and beaten to death in unrealistic brutal situations by this sadistic game (that means probably you) by offering various non-winning achievements and encouraging people to try and play NetHack forks.

You participate in the tournament by playing Vanilla NetHack, SporkHack, UnNethack, AceHack, GruntHack, or NetHack4 on the supported public servers and linking those accounts on your Junethack user page.

You can get in contact with the organizers of Junethack here, on rec.games.roguelike.nethack, and in the #junethack IRC channel on the Freenode IRC network.

If you want to help out in the development of the tournament, you can check out our code from GitHub.

Register at the tournament homepage and start venturing into the Dungeons of Doom!

  1. Will you create unnethack 4.0 for 64bit debian 7? I try to install i386 version but can’t.

    Your blog header image is beautifull, what font you used? and what terminal you used to play the game?

  2. any news on v5 release?
