Developed by award winning Canadian development team Silicon Knights Too Human
has been a long time coming and looks to deliver what could be the successor to the Halo series.
follows android (part man, part machine) god Baldur on his quest to protect the human race from a mechanized army that seeks to destroy the human race and harvest their blood and limbs to become more human in themselves. Too Human
will have a deep RPG element using various talent trees and classes as well as a levelling system not unlike the ones shown in the Blizzard
games, although the game will focus on action and a very deep story-line akin to other Silicon Knights games(Eternal Darkness, Metal Gear Solid: Twin snakes etc...
). Too Human
is also influenced heavily by Norse mythology(Baldur is an actual Norse God in the game) so expect to see heavy references to Norse canon.
has so far had a development cycle that spans a decade and a variety of consoles. It was originally to be developed as a 5-disc Playstation epic, then Nintendo aquired Silicon knights and now Microsoft has bought them out. Hopefully the 10 year development cycle has proved to make this game as good as it can be. Watch-out for this game coming in 2008.
