Change Comparison

Company Overview
An unusual software devloper. Here is an excerpt from the <moby game="Dark Legions">Dark Legions</moby> manual:¶

<blockquote>Silicon Knights is a new group of developers located
in Ontario, Canada. We are a company that intends to set new standards in the computer game industry through strong educational backgrounds, professional artists, and unique game designs. It is our goal that every project be an A+ title. We are a non-traditional company that works in non-traditional ways. We do not just design game engines; we design the game and then design the engine around the game.¶

...¶

Silicon Knights has always had a commitment
to multi-player games. We believe that there is no substitue for two-player interaction. In Dark Legions you can have a challenging game against the computer or against your friends. With the demand for modem games rapidly growing, we felt it was time to develop a game that not only supported connectivity but was designed specifically for it. Thus, this game will play seamlessly over two machines."¶
