Junethack 2014 – the 4rd NetHack Cross-Variant Summer Tournament

The fourth installment of the annual NetHack Cross-Variant Summer Tournament called Junethack has started on Sunday June 1st 2014 at midnight UTC and will be running until June 30 midnight UTC.

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.

This year, we have again NetHack 1.3d as part of the tournament. The UnNetHack and NetHack4 forks had updates since last year, so be on the look-out for dangerous changes in those games ;-).

You participate in the tournament by playing Vanilla NetHack, SporkHack, UnNethack, AceHack, GruntHack, NetHack4, or NetHack 1.3d 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 reddit, 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!

Update 07 Jun 2014

DNetHack has been added as a supported variant to the tournament. You can play it at dnethack.ilbelkyr.de. Take note that now the cross variant achievements take one more variant to get. Although those players that already got those achievements will not lose them.
