Silicon Knights boss Denis Dyack has said that the company’s transition from Epic’s Unreal Engine to its own technology has been “fantastic”.

“We completely threw out the Unreal Engine and focused on something that would work for what we’re doing, and it’s been fantastic,” he told CVG.

Silicon Knights’ lawsuit against Epic, which claims the firm was “misled” over how complete the Unreal Engine code was, has yet to be resolved.

Dyack’s labour of love, action RPG Too Human, has now been confirmed for an August 29 launch in Europe.
