Nethack, again

By Sparky | November 28, 2005

Today was a fairly normal day back to work. I must say that the four day weekend certainly was a nice break from normal life. Skype really enjoyed having me there the majority of the time and I got to reset myself from my work stress.

My co-worker Alissa turned me back on to an old favorite of a game: Nethack. It’s the classic adventure dungeon hack and slash and its filled with ASCII graphics goodness. Check it out – I dare you – you won’t be disapointed. I’m half tempted to install the OS X terminal version onto Minty and open up anon access so anybody can log in and play without installing it over SSH. Email me if you are interested in such a service.

It’s great to see such a fantastic game thriving with a healthy open source development community behind it on SourceForge. Now I just want to see the OSS community pick up Geometry wars and start making creative improvements to the best Xbox 360 launch title.
