Asymmetric Publications is a video game developer and publisher. It is responsible for the popular web-based role-playing game Kingdom of Loathing.

Currently Asymmetric is run by Zack Johnson and Josh Nite (who are known as Jick and Mr. Skullhead, respectively, in the game). Employees of the company are known as the Asymmetric Team. As a result of the popularity of the game, Asymmetric currently supports Johnson, Nite, and five other individuals as full-time employees.[1]

In the past, Asymmetric Publications hosted various games and other attractions, including Infinity Plus One, an online fortune teller; Bee On Drugs, a bee who talks about the most random things imaginable; and Krakrox the Barbarian, a game widely noted as the precursor to the popular Kingdom of Loathing.

A running gag was that the Asymmetric Publications' website was not updated for almost six years after the announcement of a "fun new game," Kingdom of Loathing. In late 2008, it started to be updated again.

It has been announced that a new game is in development, but so far no details or release dates have been given.
