The history of Silicon Knights is that of a studio that achieved great fame and reputation … but that ended up falling out of favor and finally closing its doors. The authors of the great Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem tried to come out afloat by creating a sequel to this GameCube horror adventure but despite their efforts, they never got Nintendo to give the green light. Next step? Buy the license rights to create this horror video game on its own.
” With Eternal Darkness, although many people know it, as Silicon Knight was dying in an agonized way, we try to get the rights but it never happened, “confirmed veteran Denis Dyack, the head of the study. & Quot; If you take a Look at Precursor Games and its spiritual successor, Shadow of the Eternals, there were still negotiations around it, but obviously it never happened, which was unfortunate “.
During the interview with IGN the creative you have highlighted that the sales of the original Eternal Darkness were close to one million games sold, which is not a particularly high figure, but Dyack stresses that it was a video game that fell very deep among the fans of Nintendo.
