Junethack 2022 – the 12th NetHack Cross-Variant Summer Tournament

The twelfth installment of the annual NetHack Cross-Variant Summer Tournament called Junethack has started today 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. In other words, if you suck at playing NetHack, this is the tournament for you!

This year there’s a variant returning to the tournament that for the last (and only) time was playable in the 2015 tournament. Since then SlashTHEM received a lots of updates, making it worthwhile to try out again. In total, there are 19 different variants of NetHack to play and get achievements and trophies in.

Also consider joining a clan. Playing with others is great fun and the clan trophies are designed such that a clan member cannot have a negative impact on a clan’s standing. Many clans are communicating on IRC or Discord if you are looking for an existing clan.

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 Libera.Chat 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.
