Event description

Description

You are hereby invited to participate in L3ETHACK!

What is this?

L3ETHACK is an event where you may apply your skills, courage, logic and experience in a maze-like puzzler. You hack your way through a terminal system by solving problems that come your way using any tools or skills you may possess.

So, it’s a game?

It is a challenge that takes place in a web based terminal, very much in the spirit of old MUDs (Multi-User Dungeons). The game doesn't focus on flashy 3D graphics or VR-support, instead it targets problem solving and allows for you to focus on that without being distracted by beautiful, labor intensive and expensive design.

The event will feature a leaderboard and completing challenges and solving puzzles will reward you with points to climb it!

Is it like COD?

You mean like the fish? Err... no? NO!

What about prizes?

Of course! As the game progresses you generate points and some puzzles also contains bonuses. Points will be used at the end of the event to decide who wins and therefore gets the best prizes. Bonuses can award you smaller prizes during the course of the event. What the exact nature of the prizes are is a closely kept secret that only few know.

My programming skills are limited. I’m not sure about this…

The idea here is to test yourself and your problems solving skills and the only things required from you is your sense of logic, your experience and your general problems solving skills. The game is designed to allow for you to use any language or skill in your toolbox to handle the situation. By focusing on problems rather than graphics and pew-pew we hope to achieve an event that is open to anyone interested in programming, hacking and problem solving.

I am a programming god, my functional programming skills will rip your puny game apart!!

You’ve got spunk and we love that. You’re welcome to try, hit the signup link to apply and proceed to rip and tear.

How long does the event last?

We start the event at 9:00, you may drop in whenever, and we will stop the game at around 14:00 to reveal the top winners and give away prizes. You may continue to mingle and party away afterwards.

Food will be served during the event.

What do I need to bring?

All you need is a computer (preferably a laptop) and a power adapter, both in working order. Any extra peripherals you need that you can reasonably carry is okay with us. We do not take any responsibility of your personal belongings so please keep them safe.

That’s pretty much it. Bring a good smile as well if you may!
