iNetHack Development Fund

iNetHack is free, and always will be. Developing and maintaining it takes a lot of time, and being an iPhone developer doesn’t come free either. My license will expire in less than a month, and it’s only a small part of the costs to cover for serious development. There is absolutely no lack of cool future features for iNetHack, in a sense this is a mere foundation for things to come.

I currently don’t have any other games with which to sort of cross-fund iNetHack development, so I’m asking you to consider a financial contribution. Encouragement (through mails, comments etc.) is of course welcome as well (and often needed), as is beta testing.

So if you feel like contributing to a free game that is based on open source principles, please feel free to do so:

Happy thanksgiving to those who celebrate it 🙂

iNetHack Hearse Support in Beta Now

As of this writing iNetHack 1.3-beta2 is being tested, which contains Hearse support and many bugfixes and UI changes. If you are an active iNetHack player and enjoy playing on the bleeding edge (plus dying a lot so to leave lots of bones), head over to the NetHack iPhone project page, sign up for the mailing list and follow the instructions. The more bones the merrier 🙂
