DSU students create new ‘Knights of the Kitchen Table’ video game

Five Dakota State University students have developed a new video game, “Knights of the Kitchen Table,” available for purchase on the gaming platform Steam.

The game is an “action, adventure, hack and slash game,” in which players slay giant food monsters that threaten their kingdom, according to game designers Alex Maxey, Spencer Sexton, Zachary Boyle, William Ko and Kristopher Wagner-Tubbs.

They all came up with the idea for the game in 2020 in their mini projects course at DSU. It started as a 2D side scroller game like “Castle Crashers,” but eventually evolved to a 3D style game similar to “Dark Souls,” according to a press release from DSU.

“We wanted to make it much more accessible to casual gamers,” Maxey said in the release. He worked on the programming, animation and 2D art for the game. “My favorite part of the game is the over the top, cartoony, whimsical nature about it.”

For future students interested in making their own game, Sexton recommends students come up with a good organizational structure for assigning duties in the creation of the game. Ko recommends fleshing out the idea and gameplay ahead of the start of the project.
