NetHack definition games
/net'hak/ (Unix) A dungeon game similar to rogue
but more elaborate, distributed in C
source over Usenet
and very popular at Unix
sites and on PC
-class machines (nethack is probably the most widely distributed of the freeware
dungeon games). The earliest versions, written by Jay Fenlason and later considerably enhanced by Andries Brouwer, were simply called "hack". The name changed when maintenance was taken over by a group of hackers originally organised by Mike Stephenson.
Version: NetHack 3.2 (Apr 1996?).
