NetHack has always been considered the longest running open-source game around. Its rouge-like gameplay keeps players and fans coming back for more. It goes back to the classics, bringing back the classic turn-based RPG genre.

Well, ddcc requested a portable version of it, so I decided to take a look. The result is Portable NetHack. With this you can play NetHack directly from your USB drive without having to worry about leaving anything behind in the registry. All settings are saved locally so you don't have to worry about loosing any saved data.

I thought it was about time to post all of my past PortableApps-related projects. This is not only to show what I've done in the past when it comes to portable applications, but also to stand as an archive for my own personal use. I'll hopefully have the chance to turn these into actual project pages one day. Maybe when I get my new website up and running.

Hello World!

Welcome to the my Portable Apps blog. I'll be trying to publish as much as I can here regarding portable applications and the development of such programs. In the mean time, enjoy!
