On the offhand chance you wanted to pick up Silicon Knights’ action-RPG this weekend, it looks like you’re out of luck as Microsoft pulls it from their download service according to Eurogamer.
The 2008 release was pulled from the Games on Demand service, along with its associated content without explanation from Microsoft. Eurogamer’s Wesley Yin-Poole questions whether this has to do with November’s court ruling requiring Silicon Knights to destroy any games or code found to have exploited Epic’s Unreal Engine. This seems to be more than likely the reason for “Too Human’s” removal, but again, no one on any side of this issue is saying anything.
Curiously, the Activision-published “X-Men: Destiny,” which was found to have appropriated Unreal tech in its development, is still available on the Games on Demand service for the highway robbery price of $39.99. Although Epic was ordered to destroy all copies of that game and code associated with it, don’t get it–even out of morbid curiosity. It’s just the worst.
“Too Human,” the first in a propsed trilogy for Silicon Knights was released to mediocre reviews and sales, but company head Denis Dyack would frequently promise to continue the trilogy.
