Too Human developer Silicon Knights has been granted $500,000 to work on a “psychological thriller”, so be prepared for release in 2010. The company had already said it would expand on the back of official cash.

The money’s coming from the Ontario Media Development Corporation as a grant to help rejuvinate the Ontario area and keep tech talent in the region.

“We believe that Ontario, and Niagara in particular, is an excellent place for a company to thrive, and, with the OMDC’s funding through the Video Game Prototype Initiative, it clearly shows that the Ontario government is on the same page,” said studio boss Dennis Dyack. “Ontario’s best natural resource is our people, and with all the great universities and colleges in Ontario, there’s an abundance of bright and creative talent. Most of Silicon Knights’ team are graduates of Ontario colleges and universities, and our team members are the best and brightest in their fields. This grant will encourage this great talent to stay within Ontario.”
