Junethack 2020 – the 10th NetHack Cross-Variant Summer Tournament

The tenth installment of the annual NetHack Cross-Variant Summer Tournament called Junethack will start 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) the most variants ever available for you to play. 19 different variants of NetHack make the full set of cross-variant achievements harder to get than in any years before. We really don’t expect anybody to catch get them all. Because of this you earn a new cross-variant achievement for every new milestone in a new variant (this even includes milestones for your first variant, blame the lazy programmers).

The newly supported variants this year is the bleeding edge development version of NetHack 3.7.0 playable on the hardfought public servers. The next variant is one of the oldest NetHack forks, Slash’EM. Last but not least, GnollHack is playable on the gnollhack.com public servers.

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. There’s also a dedicated discord channel #nethack-junethack on the Roguelikes discord channel which is synced with the IRC channel.

There’s a FAQ on the NetHack wiki.
