Kingdom of Loathing mulls mobile version and spin-off, prepares for annual convention

There’s a lot going on for the punny browser game Kingdom of Loathing, so let’s bring you up to date on all of the fun! First of all, it appears that the developers are considering creating a mobile version of the online RPG, perhaps funded by a Kickstarter campaign. Currently the game does adapt to smartphones and tablets when run on those device’s browsers.

Next up is the news that the team is creating a spin-off title, West of Loathing, for spring 2016. West of Loathing looks to be a western single-player RPG set in the Kingdom of Loathing universe.

Finally, KoL Con is returning for its 12th (!) year in Mesa, Arizona from September 25th to 26th. The $25 registration fee is your access ticket to casino night, BBQ, and, um, “wizards.”

This game is great. To be honest, it’s the game that has kept my attention (on and off) for the longest. The writing is great, the art gets better the longer you look at it, the mechanics are not annoying, and content updates and constant. 
I’m so excited! Take all my meat!!!

They do delete inactive accounts, except (at least it used to be their policy) if they had purchased a Mr Accessory. Ah well, I still have more games to play, books to read, and shows to watch than I likely have life left in me.

Styopa IIRC they delete inactive accounts after a while. I don’t remember the specifics, but the  game has such a high turnaround rate it’s not surprising they don’t hold onto it forever.

I always tell people KOTOR was my first RPG, but in reality it was KoL. This game is perfect for mobile!

I would totally buy a single-player Kingdom of Loathing single player RPG!  Looking forward to this.

Played it for years, I think I was on my 3rd or 4th Ascendance, had bought Mr Accessory (before it became dupable), and then didn’t play for a while; can’t remember my login and can’t even get them to *answer* my emails. Rather disappointed at that. :

Loved this game! It made law school bearable. Stopped playing though around my 27th HC ascension though.

I completely forgot about this game. It would be great on mobile. Now to see if I can remember my account info – I think I had a Spaghettimancer, or something like that.
