Le Game: Hello Kitty Online Lovers Guide

Now it’s time for me to be a bad girl and write about a little something that occasionally steals my attention and with good reason. It’s the digital candyland of my wildest dreams come true, a land completely revolving around SANRIO characters in design and purpose. Although I’ve been playing since the closed beta, I still haven’t really posted anything of justice about the wonderfulness that is Hello Kitty Online. Did I mention I was a Sanrio-fan since birth? I’m sure you can easily find that information inserted into articles at least about 35 times, no less! 😉

Can I play?

Yes! Currently in open beta testing, the download is free (and will continue to be free with the option to purchase goodies for your character at the item mall — such a popular trend for free online gaming these days!)

Is it newbie friendly?

If you’re an MMORPG player you should pick things up quite quickly, if this is new for you it will take a bit of getting used to but there are *tons* of tutorials available to help you on your way!

The GUIDE

Miseducated’s crafty kitty paws crawled the web for days and days to bring you absolutely everything you may or may not want to know about the world of Hello Kitty. If you get confused you can refer to any of these amazing guides put together by the lovelies who inhabit the world wide web. If you have a question that we didn’t discuss, let me know and I’ll help you out.

System Requirements – bad news: it’s only for PC (but with Parallels you can easily run it on your mac!)

Lamb in Wonder

My character’s name is Lamb and she’s a slow riser but that’s only because I’m a workaholic and try to play just a bit late at night (or anytime I’m feeling blue/stressed and need to get away!).

Lamb’s Farm

Yes, you get to plant and manage your own little farm in which you can choose to build your own little home at in future levels. Carpentry is a skill you master at later levels also, can you imagine all the personalized cuteness at your fingertips (paws!)?
