Dyack confirms work “underway” on Too Human 2 and 3 as well as “other games in the pipe”

Tuesday, 19th August 2008 13:42 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Speaking to VG247, Silicon Knights boss Denis Dyack has confirmed that work has begun on both a second and third Too Human game, as well as revealing new, unannounced projects in the works at the Canadian developer.

“We do,” he said when asked if the firm’s working on games other than Too Human.

“They’re unannounced. We’re not talking about them right now, but there are other games in the pipe. Also, of course, we’ll be continuing the [Too Human] trilogy with Microsoft.

“We’re definitely on the road, and things are looking really good: the sequels are underway.”

Dyack added that the only thing that would realistically stop more Too Human games would be a complete failure of the first title.

“It’s as guaranteed as anything is these days, yeah,” he said. “If the first game totally fails and no one wants to play it, then what’s the point of making a second or third?

“But looking at the trends of the demo and how we think we’re going to do, then yeah.”

Too Human hits US retail today, and launches in Europe at the end of this month.

    I wonder how this will sell. Pre-orders have been pretty good and the reviews came too late for most US buyers to react so the first month sales could be high.

    Still… I’m all for devs trying to improve their game with sequels, as long as the issues from the first game are things that can be fixed (in this case it would seem a few bits can).

    The sad fact is that for most gamers, the art on the back of the box will sell this game by itself. It’s very good and the premise appeals to traditional gamers.

    It’ll probably be enjoyed by most everyone that buys it, because critical gamers who see games as more than toys make up such a tiny fraction of the market.

    Stickboy: Have you ever considered that it might sell simply on the back of being a decent game?

    @ SticKboy
    Your post is a tad pessimistic. But all in all I do agree!

    @ Michael
    Yes, mediocrity does tend to sells well …
