Kart Kingdom was a online multiplayer game that launched as a beta on March 24, 2015. It was shut down on October 1, 2020 at midnight, Pacific Standard Time.
In Kart Kingdom, players go on quests, craft gadgets and karts with bits, and talk to other users.
Players could go on quests in four areas, Grand Glade, Mount Snow, The Deep, and Bug Garden. There are twenty quests in total, five for each area. In each quest, you had to locate a certain number of animals or objects in order to complete it. Upon completion of each quest, you would receive some kind of reward you could use to decorate your avatar.
Gadgets are essential parts of quests, and can be crafted using bits. Gadgets are the main way to access unobtainable areas in quests.
Characters from the game only
K is Kart Kingdom's usual reporter. She runs the blog (but not really because she is a fictional character) and holds contests. Her best friends are Gus and her cousin CC, while other characters, mainly Drew and Harley, appear to only be acquaintances, or casual friends. Her tent appears in the Grand Glade and Mount Snow areas, equipped with the ability to teleport players to other areas in Kart Kingdom, with what seems to be her house right behind it. K has orange skin, blue hair, and dark orange eyes. It was confirmed in August 2017 that she attends school. She begins her blog posts with "Hi Friends,". K has once revealed her persona and possible name as The Kart on the blog. CC has not revealed hers yet.
Gus drives the Give & Get Truck and mainly comes during events. He uses his Give & Get Truck to give out items during events to players in exchange for certain bits. His best friend is K. It is unknown whether he is friends with CC, or anyone else, as there has never been any time when Gus is with them. Gus has orange skin and black hair. It is unknown what his eye color is since he never opens his eyes.
CC is K's cousin and best friend, who is also a reporter. Sometimes, when K is on vacation, she runs the blog in her place and things usually go horribly wrong, much to the amusement of the players. She has orange hair and dark blue skin. She has long hair even though currently, players cannot get long hair in the game. Her eyes are red and green due to her heterochromia. She begins her blog posts with "Oh, hello again!" But when she writes her last blog post for the year, she writes "Hello and goodbye!"
Drew doesn't appear in the game. He only appears in blog posts and never does anything except for fix karts and/or make karts. It seems to be his hobby. Unlike others in the game, he wears casual clothes. He has light blue skin, purple hair, and black eyes. He wears glasses and a cap.
Harley runs the Games Tent, a place where players go to play games and earn items. He loves to joke around. He is not a very popular character. He appears mostly in the game, but occasionally in blog posts as well. He has blue skin. His cap always covers his hair, and his sunglasses always block anyone from seeing his eyes.
Pinewood is a character who appears in Kart Kingdom Racing. He was first noticed by some players who were browsing Chris Bishop's twitter and found that he was working on a new character named "Pinewood". He later appeared on the home page in an update. It was thought by some that he was only designed for the home page, but he has a name, and sure enough, he appeared in the game with the May 2018 KKR Update. He has dark green skin and dark blue eyes. Many are under the impression that he is young because he is missing a tooth and wears a cardboard helmet the covers his hair.
