Nethack


Nethack is "Text-based overhead view D&D-style adventure game" (Quote from Debian's package description for Nethack).

I started playing Nethack when I bought my first Amiga back in 1994 and it took me no less than nine years to beat the thing. I always had "seasons" in playing Nethack - having months between tries to retrieve the Amulet of Yendor with my female human samurai - so that nine years isn't as much as it might sound. Some people probably find Nethack way too difficult since when the character die, the game's over. There are no save-points, no second chances, just death... unless you're wearing amulet of life saving.

Watch out, the "stories" are written-and-forgotten - they have not been proof-read and are likely to make no sense at all.

If I were a NetHack monster, I would be a floating eye. I see and sense absolutely everything that happens around me. I just don't do very much about it.
Which NetHack Monster Are You?
(If I weren't a floating eye, I'd be a tengu.)
