Ten bucks buys you an awful lot of dungeon-hacking -- it sure ain't NetHack but it ain't bad.
Nethack is one of my all-time favorite games, one I've been playing since 1200 baud was smokin' fast.

In short, NetHack 3.1.3 is the most elaborate role-playing environment you are ever likely to explore. This is a place to return again and again, each time for a different experience. You're really going to have to play it for a year or two and see for yourself.

Thank you for the latest release of gradewrecker. My GPA just went in the corner and shot itself.

The DevTeam would like to welcome its latest members. Both of these folks should be familiar to the members of the NetHack community:
Alex Smith, who created the AceHack and NetHack 4 variants. Alex is an expert on the inner workings of the game and the ways in which they can be exploited.
Patric Mueller, who is probably best known as the creator of the UnNetHack variant. Patric also created NetHack-De (German translation of NetHack) and has considerable involvement in the Junethack tournament. Before contracting the dreaded coding bug, Patric was a long time player, having started out on NetHack 3.0 on the Amiga back in the late 80s.
Alex has indicated that, at least initially, he'd be concentrating on improved interface, improved internals, and new features in areas that don't affect the game's gameplay, drawing on some of the features introduced in AceHack and NetHack 4.
Patric's initial focus will be to identify and incorporate changes from a variety of variants into NetHack, in order to expand the gameplay while keeping NetHack's spirit and appeal intact.
Please join us in welcoming Patric and Alex to the DevTeam as we start plans for the next major release.
For the DevTeam,
