Silicon Knights Betting on Too Human
Denis Dyack, president and founder of Silicon Knights, recently gave an interview to his hometown paper on Too Human and the future of the company. A successful launch for Too Human would mean expansion for Silicon Knights and new jobs for St. Catherines. Dyack is already making plans for expansion. However there have been some problems along the way that have left that success in doubt.
The battle between Silicon Knights and Epic Games over faulty core technology is still on going. The original engine for Too Human left gamers and publishers with a less than stellar impression of the game. Dyack is aware of the complications, but confident that gamers will see the value in the new game engine Silicon Knights has created for Too Human from scratch.
“If Too Human is perceived for what it is, and people look at it, I think it will do extremely well. We’re in a really strange position, because most games are released with a ton of hype. Generally, previews don’t say anything negative at all.”
Dyack and Silicon Knights are forging ahead with polishing Too Human and working on other projects, including one for Sega. Dyack’s staying positive, and feels the game has exceeded his expectations. Let’s hope that Silicon Knights puts out a demo on this one to prove that Too Human is worth the wait. We’ll find out in August.
