Yeah, KoL isn't for everyone. A lot of the humor is based off of references,
or just straight puns. And while the puns are generally sickeningly
horrible, the references are usually good. The only thing that redeem's the
puns in my opinion is that the developers do the puns in such a manner
simply to make you go oh man, that was aweful. I do think it's a neat game
though, its got a fully featured plot and quest line, 6 different classes,
all of which are very unique, a refreshing change from most games where the
only thing that differs between classes is name and maybe the ability to
cast spells, good jokes here and there if you understand the references, I
dunno. For those of you who have played and lost interest, provided you're
reading this thread, I recommend giving the game another try. But try to see
the overall picture, the underlying mechanics, the uniqueness of the
classes, the way the world opens up as you do more, the fiendishly difficult
puzzles, there's a lot about the game that's cool even if the humor just
makes you wince once in a while. Would be more than happy to help anyone get
started and on their feet, I'm talerous, leader of the Mr. Banana Heads
clan, misspelled with 1 n cause I'm weird. Feel free to look me up, new or

I lost interest in KOL rather quickly though. A lot of the humor just
seemed extremely corny to me.
It ain't pretty when the pretty leaves you with no place to go.
