NetHack Quotes

Nethack is one of my all-time favorite games, one I’ve been
playing since 1200 baud was smokin’ fast.

— Actor Wil Wheaton,

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.

— “Fatal Distractions” by David Gerrold

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