Kingdom of Loathing (abbreviated as KoL) is a browser-based, multiplayer role-playing game designed and operated by Asymmetric Publications, including creator Zack "Jick" Johnson and writer Josh "Mr. Skullhead" Nite. The game was released on February 23, 2003. Because content is still being added frequently, the game is still considered unfinished and officially remains in open beta.
It uses hand-drawn stick figure graphics and writing characterized by surreal humor, word play, parody and references to popular culture. In KoL, a player's character fights monsters for experience, meat (the game's currency), and items, through a turn-based system. Players may also interact with each other through player versus player competition, participate in the in-game economy by trading goods and services, organize their characters into clans, work together to complete dungeons found in the Clan basements, and speak to each other in many different chat channels....
