NetHack is sometimes considered to be the Father of all roguelikes even though it is not the first. The original NetHack was just called Hack. It was actually one of the earliest clones of Rogue. (Rogue was the first roguelike and I will go over it in another post) This version of NetHack had many improvements over Rogue like a computer pet and many other things. This game is considered the most influential Roguelike other than Rogue. This roguelike has continued development and continues on to make many versions and is playable and downloadable. Here is the site.
