* About Us *

Hi, my name is Don Lloyd and I'm the lead designer for Knight Works. We are located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The Knight Works team is a small but ornery and determined group of individuals. Back in 2000 I started work on the board game Shadow Wars and slowly gained the support from some of the gamers in my area. We eventually released Shadow Wars back in 2001 as a self published game that was produced by hand. The campaign setting for the board game was a project of mine for roughly twenty years. It started out as a campaign for a role playing game and then migrated into a simple shareware game that I released back in 1993. The game setting even had a short prototype run for a collectible card game but I couldnt fund the project back then. Through out each of the different incarnations more of the history, setting and overall game atmosphere has been developed.

A lot of time has passed since I worked on the first edition of the Shadow Wars board game. Our group has all went through a lot of changes. Friends have come and go, been married, started families and went about our normal lives. I took a break from designing back in 2003 and got married and started a family as well. The pull to start getting back into game design grabbed a hold of me in 2007 and the group was back together to fire up the Legends of Syrrith design. We had some problems with the overall flow of the game and mechanics and it was unfortunately put on hold. The last thing any of us want to do is to rush a crappy game out into the market. Our group takes pride in the designs and ideas that we work on. I promised everyone that no game would ever be rushed out the door like some other independent designers that I have meet with.

Our most recent game is set in the Wild West and involves players taking on the role of mayors building out their territories and gaining influence. The project has really been a steam roller and everything is falling into place. We are shooting for this game to be the first professionally printed game from Knight Works.
