Quest For Pants: An (Extremely) Unofficial Sequel To Nethack

Quest For Pants is my Seven Day Roguelike . (More precisely, it's my Seven Day Roguelike Which I Didn't Stop Working On.)

Here is a screen shot.


The current version is 1.02. Changes from the previous version include:

Previous versions are available in source-code form.

The original version, 1.00, is what I finished at the end of the 7-day period (plus a little bit of hacking to make it work as a standalone application). It's available because that's a condition of the challenge but only as source code so that nobody will actually try to play it.

(Yes, I know that some of you will take that as a challenge. I'm not afraid--I wrote it in a wierd programming language that none of you can use. Hah!)

Linux Binaries

Linux binaries are available here: downloads/qfp-1.02-linux.tar.bz2. The file is approximately 3.3Mb in size. Installation instructions are in the file "Install.txt" in the "doc" subdirectory of the archive.

You should be able to play the game on non-Linux Unix-like systems simply by replacing the Squeak executable in the archive with one built for your platform.

Windows Binaries

There is now a Windows version. It's kind of ugly and there's no installer, but here it is: downloads/


MacOSX should be sufficiently Unix-like for the Linux approach to work on it, but I haven't managed to verify this. If you want me to provide an actual OSX distribution, please send me a Mac Mini.

Source Code

Quest For Pants is written in Squeak Smalltalk. If you don't know what that means, go here.

There are two source kits available:

Quest For Pants is released under more-or-less the terms of the GNU General Public License. The "more-or-less" part is a couple of non-GPL open-source files I've included for convenience and an exemption that lets you use Quest For Pants with incompatibly-licensed Smalltalks. See the enclosed file "Copyright.txt" for all of the gory details.
