A downloadable game for Windows


KILL THE KING is a very short side scrolling stealth game where every action is a life or death affair.  Sneak through the ruins of an ancient castle to KILL THE KING!

This game  was made in 48 hours for the Extra Credits Game Design Jam, and was featured in a live stream run by Extra Credits after the conclusion of the jam. 

CONTENT WARNING: KILL THE KING features (pixel art) blood, dismemberment and, unless you're really bad at it, regicide.  


  • Press 'A' to step Left
  • Press 'D' to step Right
  • Press 'SPACE' to Stab-Tackle 
    (Continue pressing 'SPACE' to perform additional stabs. Poor guy.)
  • Press 'ESC' to give up and do something better with your life


If you're more interested in being a tyrannical dictator "democratically elected leader of the free world" than slaying them, check out our entry for the second Extra Credits game jam:
