Rumors of a Silicon Knights-developed game named The Box have been making the rounds long before Too Human hit the Xbox 360. And there’s no real reason to toss the possibility aside yet, especially in light of the game’s name surfacing on a CV.
According to this translated document, artist Zhang Shao-yong worked on The Box and Too Human as part of a “games special effects production” team at Silicon Knights between June 2005 and April 2008.
The Google-translation (which is, assumedly, horribly wrong) gives us an idea of what he did on both titles: “the application of particle and material performance of explosions, smoke, water, fire, weather and so on.”
There’s no doubt Silicon Knights is working on at least one unannounced IP, but we’re not sure if The Box is that IP. Heck, we’re not even sure The Box still exists or if its that SEGA-tied title as speculated. Time will reveal the answers, but we went ahead and contacted SK to get the them now in case we die in a car accident tomorrow or something.
