Junethack 2017 – the 7th NetHack Cross-Variant Summer Tournament

The seventh installment of the annual NetHack Cross-Variant Summer Tournament called Junethack has started on Thursday 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 the most variants to play ever. 11 different variants of NetHack make the cross-variant trophies harder to get than in any years before.

You participate in the tournament by playing NetHack 3.6, NetHack 3.4.3, SporkHack, UnNethack, GruntHack, dNetHack, NetHack4, NetHack Fourk, DynaHack, FIQhack, or Slash’EM Extended 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!
