Browser-based game in Perl

Just thought I'd point you to the browser-based game called "Kingdoms" I've been working on for the last (almost) year and a half. It's a role-playing game, using Perl 5.10, Catalyst, DBIx::Class and a lot of other stuff from CPAN.

Still a long way off being finished, but fairly playable. Have a look, feedback welcome!

Also, if anyone's interested in contributing, drop me a line. Could use someone to help with the coding, as I have a lot more ideas than time to do them :)

    I was just wondering if you could put some screenshots on the game's site? (Or is it only text based?)
    I wouldnt register if i dont know what it will be (look) like ...

      Fair enough... it's still early days, so a lot of the graphics/artwork isn't done yet... but I can probably get something up shortly. Thanks.

    Nice, but now that Catalyst is Moose-based, you owe it to them to add some rampant Moose in the game!
