Game Description and Comments
Kingdom of Loathing is a free online RPG loaded with wit and sarcasm instead of amazing graphics (as can be seen by the lack of colorful screenshots this week). In fact most of the graphics that you see will be of the stick figure variety. This actually adds to the humor of the game. KoL is played directly through your browser so you can be playing in just seconds after signing up and then logging in.
Before you even create your character you will see plenty of satire because the game’s story and character creature feature are on the same page where you sign up at. KoL’s storyline pokes fun at generic storylines with such lines as “One fateful Porktober morning a Sorceress came to the Kingdom. A Naughty Sorceress. A Naughty Sorceress who was clearly up to no good and even more clearly up to plenty of bad.” The satire continues with character creation as normal RPG classes are injected with a heavy dose of humor. For example a Necromancer is called a Pastamancer and a Warrior is known as a Seal Clubber. Even being able to chat requires you to go to the “Altar of Literacy”. Along with Hobo Wars Kingdom of Loathing is one of the funniest and wackiest free online games that you will ever play.
- No download.
- Hilarious character choices such as Seal Clubber Turtle Tamer Pastamancer Sauceror Disco Bandit and Accordion Thief.
- You are given a set number of Adventures each day. Each Adventure lets you do something
- Adventures allow you to get loot and increase stats like *Muscle Moxie and Mysticality. They are also accompanied with funny text descriptions.
- Character stats stay on the left side of the browser.
- Easy-to-use maps guide you through the various attractions of the game like Mt. Noob The Dungeon Full Of Dungeons The Meatsmith and The Bugbear Bakery.
- Each level gives you a silly title like Puffin Intimidator.

Comment: Amazing game that I highly recommend. I’ve been playing for about 1 and a half years and have no complaints. Plus new content is being added constantly. There is a lot to explore and the text in battles are hilarious…Especially the Final Ultimate Epic Final Conflict.
Comment: Completely addictive! Everything is a joke or reference to the past 25 years of gaming culture.
