Kingdom of Loathing celebrates its tenth birthday

Happy birthday to Kingdom of Loathing, which is turning (or has turned, or is about to turn) 10! That's 10 years of Disco Banditry, Pastamancing, and Turtle Taming. Ten years of mysticality and musculature. Ten years of adventuring with your favorite Sabre-Toothed Lime familiar or Hovering...

Choose My Adventure: Once more into The Kingdom of Loathing

Wow, how time flies. Here it is, the second-to-last Choose My Adventure for The Kingdom of Loathing. I have to admit I am surprised at how much I am enjoying the experience so far. The reasons I am enjoying it might be surprising, but it's possible that my time with KoL is nothing new. After all,...

Choose My Adventure: Out of breath but not out of meat in The Kingdom of Loathing

Here we go into another week of The Kingdom of Loathing, a wacky, free-to-play, browser-based MMO published by Asymmetric Publications.

Choose My Adventure: Disco dancing through The Kingdom of Loathing

It's been a fun week so far in The Kingdom of Loathing, but I know I have just barely started. The hardest part of this adventure is going to be deciding what to put up for a vote next.

Rise and Shiny recap: 1100 AD

1100 AD is a new browser-based MMORTS that is published by Aeria Games. It's new to me, at least, even though I find a lot of the design and ideas behind the title to be pretty familiar. The truth is that the MMORTS genre is about as repetitive and ordinary as the standard MMO model. Players will...

The Game Archaeologist's fear and loathing in the Kingdom: Joshing with Jick

Here at the Game Archaeologist Labs, we've been dissecting just what it takes to make a hit MMO that defies normal conventions -- a homemade startup that loves its wordplay long time even in an age when only about 12% of internet forum posters are fully literate. Kingdom of Loathing is an anomaly...

One Shots: You must first pass the test

Normally we likely wouldn't generally add in a 'screenshot' from a browser-based, primarily text MMO, but we're such huge fans of the Test of Literacy that we simply couldn't resist posting this Kingdom of Loathing screen that was sent in to us by Harmen. Here's what he had to say about this...
