Another way to kill time on the Internet

2005-05-30 , ,

While waiting out the rain this past week my friend Russ turned me on to
another of the myriad ways to kill time on the Internet:
[Kingdom of Loathing](http://www.kingdomofloathing.com), a web-based
adventure game. It cleverly parodies the stale, overworked nonsense that
is the hallmark of the role-playing game and fantasy fiction
genres. The low-rent illustration is cute and if you’ve ever
read a pulp fantasy novel, played through Zork (or Wizardry, or Bards
Tale…) or rolled the dice in a game of AD&D (but of course,
geek, you have…) you’ll recognize the subreferences and, even if you haven’t,
you’ll laugh out loud when they are lampooned.
