Trivia: NetHack
  • Development Hell: The last version, 3.4.3, was released in 2003. Apparently, the Dev Team is still actively developing it, but each version is closed source until the binary is released.
  • Long Runner: The game began as a more sophisticated version of Rogue, named "Hack." It gained the "Net" part of its name when various contributors from around Use Net began adding their own features to the source code base. If you've ever seen the source code, you know it looks like something that's been edited by committee.
