Une interface graphique pour le jeu Nethack, par Thomas Koss (groovejuice).
Elle utilise le moteur graphique Irrlicht (dans le Bottin).
Nethack 3D est une interface pour le jeu Nethack (dans le Bottin), améliorant son aspect visuel par des graphismes 3D et lui ajoutant le support de la souris.
Nethack est un roguelike en ncurses dérivé de Moria ou Rogue dans lequel votre quête pour l'amulette de Yendor vous amènera à bien des aventures.
Ce type de jeu mise sur l'imagination des joueurs passionnés en privilégiant la stratégie et l'aventure (sans cesse renouvelée car générée aléatoirement), le graphisme y est minimaliste mais peut-être amélioré par ces interfaces.
Nethack is a complex hack and slay game, and is known since the first personal computer age. Nethack goes 3D. After working on irrhack (a 2D Nethack graphic interface) i transfered this into 3D graphic (the irrlicht engine makes it possible).
It is possible to attach and modify 3D models and sounds via xml files.
What is Nethack ?
Nethack is one of the oldest games still being developed, and some consider it to be the greatest game ever made.
And no, you don't have to know how to hack.
It was based on its predecessor, Hack—named after the hack-and-slash genre of role playing games—and collaborated on over the (Inter)net, and hence: Nethack.
It is not, however, a Web-based game. Nethack is a classic single-player (randomly generated) dungeon exploration game that runs on a wide variety of platforms, and yet each implementation uses the same game engine.
But whether graphics or text-based, emphasis is on discovering dungeon detail rather than just killing everything in sight.
Your goal in this massive dungeon crawl is to find the Amulet of Yendor, at the bottom of the dungeon, and sacrifice it to your deity.
You will then ascend to demi-god status.
The graphics, or rather lack thereof, are surprising and may turn-off new players. The game's origin was text-based, with ‘@’ representing your character and various other symbols representing monsters and items on the ground. Of course, if you can't handle the heat of the sometimes confusing text-based graphics, you can download Nethack 3D.
This version will improve the original game with real 3D graphics and a mouse driven controls. This improvements will make this great game more up to date and more interesting to a lot of people.
The gameplay is exceptionally rich and deep, and the development team seems to have thought of everything.
For example, if you are burdened and attempt to go down stairs, the game will likely inform you that you just fell down the stairs.
Another (more famous) example involves the many uses of the deadly monster, the Cockatrice.
Its touch can turn the player to stone, so attacking it using the player's bare hands is not recommended.
If the player does manage to kill one, the corpse may wielded as a weapon to turn other monsters to stone, if, of course, the player wears gloves. Furthermore, if the player-character is female and is poly-morphed into a cockatrice, the player can lay cockatrice eggs, which have several interesting applications.
Of the most commonly cited stupid ways to die—and, in my opinion, the most funny—is wielding a cockatrice corpse while burdened, then fall down a staircase and land on one's own cockatrice corpse.
Another big aspect of the game is that the most parts are random generated, which makes every game to a new adventure.
La page du site n'est malheureusement plus maintenue et lien Download n'est plus fonctionnel.
Néanmoins l'interface est toujours maintenue (nouvelles versions en 2015, des binaires windows) et disponible sur Sourceforge (lien "Dev site" ci-dessus, pour le dernier source - près de 180Mo!, suivre le lien "Changelog 2").
