Dyack's next game, the Xbox 360 title Too Human, was conceived in 1993 but is only now in full development. Other games put out by Silicon Knights include the excellent Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem for the GameCube, Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain, and an unannounced project with Sega.

The game vet was in San Francisco as part of a GDC session on how to keep independent developers independent, and GameSpot had a chance to catch up with him to talk about the latest on Too Human, how the press should approach games, and whether we'll ever see another Eternal Darkness game (hint: it looks good).
