The Silicon Knights Logo explained. Short Failblog.

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.


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...


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.
