What a lovely way for a game to end:

zunger-Arc-Hum-Mal-Neu died in The Dungeons of Doom on level 5. Killed by a little dog, while helpless.

I think it’s a sign that the game is trying to not just kill, but humiliate.

  1. What game is this??

  2. *laughs*
    *suggests GENOCIDED env var*

  3. You want me to genocide little dogs?! I just can’t imagine that turning out well, especially if one has one as a pet…

  4. Your little dogs and you too, my pretty!
    *clones army of genetically mutated flying simians*

  5. Yeah, you’d take a point or two of evil if you did so. But only if it’s your pet… Much worse for you to *eat* your little dog.

  6. Nethack gives new meaning to “sadistic” . . . I thought this had been established. 😉
