The Silicon Knights Logo explained. Short Failblog.

   0
So, I know nobody probably cares about this at all but it's something that has been bothering me since I first saw the SK logo. WHAT IS THAT THING!?


An incarnation of the logo that probably isn't as old as it should be...

So lets just ignore the current reputation of Dennis Dyack and Co. For a minute and focus on their baffling logo. I always understood that they were 'knights of silicon', honourable and distinguished warriors of virtual worlds created by the power of silicon technology, sure it's pretty cute. The older image here really focuses on the silicon- it is obvious that the cube there is made of computer chips.

BUT

What if I told you that it wasn't a cube at all. Take a look at the newer logo, its easier to imagine.



Ya, thats a simplified, more contemporary looking logo. When I saw it I was still as curious as ever so I started thinking, is is a computer tower? Is it a real tower? It has a striking resemblance to the building SK calls home.



But, today was a special day. I find myself working beside a former employee and asked him a familiar question. He said that nobody knows what that thing is, and that they were always surprised when he told them...


ITS A SHIELD.


It is a Silicon shield, a shield made of silicon. A sci-fi shield made of silicon...They are knights equipped with medieval swords and silicon shields. What the hell are they fighting?

At any rate, Lord Dyack seems pleased...


and now you know.

Hey Dtoid. Welcome to perritoid!

I'm a 23 year old artist/teacher. While in University I experimented mostly with Animation, Video, and Games.

The lovely [dearly departed] Anthony Burch* featured the fruits of my experimentation here on Destructoid as part of the Indie Nation Series Which probably is one of the coolest things that has ever happened to me! One of many reasons why I love Destructoid.

*The [formerly] Resident Person Named Anthony Who Isn't Anthony Perri.

My first console was the SNES. It remains my favourite, and I've been playing games ever since without pause. Recently I've been a little burned out on the modern sensibilities of a suddenly overwhelmingly Western market. Most of the HD games don't appeal to me.

I currently live in Korea where I teach english and avoid Starcraft [and the north].
