What is Escape from /dev/null?

TL;DR: Escape from /dev/null is a combination of a web-based multi-user board game, a programming competition and a science fiction or fantasy story (depending on scenario). Yes it is :)

This game is open for multiple sponsors, who would like to be judges and meet, get to know and evaluate 60-80 of Stockholm’s finest. No pressure.
Sponsors: Fyndiq, Waitress

Choice of technologies: Open
Theme of all challenges: Son of Dungeons of /dev/null
Prizes: Yes, quirkier than ever :)
Address: SUP46, Regeringsgatan 29, Stockholm

Registration: Click here

You will be creating a client to a multi-user dungeon before the competitions (yes, docs and test services will be made available). At the actual event you will have to implement solutions to tricky problems by controlling your player character inside the dungeon in various ways. Or just kill the other players and get an epic high-score. That works too, but won’t win you any prizes :).

Update: API keys have been sent out to all registered developers so that they can familiarize themselves with character creation and combat in the competition server multi-user roguelike environment.

This was one of the best events yet, stability and fun-wise :) here are som hot pics to ponder;
