NetHack is plenty exciting when you can see straight.

I like this one! Granted, the beginning is funnier than the end, but it works with the hallucination mechanic.

#2 DrSunglass Wed, 1 Apr 2009 03:05:02
This should be in NetHack if it isn't already. I demand a patch!

#3 TobyBartels Wed, 1 Apr 2009 05:45:49
E for Exciting (and for the space station).

#4 eskimo68 Wed, 1 Apr 2009 06:00:12
The space station was good :)

#5 progo Wed, 1 Apr 2009 08:06:53
I like the widescreen.

#6 anther Wed, 1 Apr 2009 19:26:51
Ah, hallucination would be so much fun if it weren't so annoying.

#7 Quint Wed, 1 Apr 2009 21:17:50
What does the first panel mean?

#8 ais523 Wed, 1 Apr 2009 22:38:43
@Quint: it's basically what happens when you try to write a computer program and mess up, there are lots of errors there. Presumably it's Dudley's controller's day job.

#9 NobodySpecial Wed, 1 Apr 2009 23:10:30
To be specific, they're error messages emitted by GCC. It seems to me appropriate that Dudley should work as a C programmer because of NetHack's Unix C background. Oh, and for what it's worth, "Happy Thursday" is a Winnie-the-Pooh reference.

There should SO be a class called "Stoner" that starts the game hallucinating, and only survives on eating yellow molds and purple funghi.
