Silicon Knights and Precursor Games’ Denis Dyack Responds to Allegations

On Sunday a video was posted to YouTube featuring Silicon Knights and Precursor Games chief creative officer Denis Dyack addressing a Kotaku story from last year which he feels has hurt the funding drive for Shadow of the Eternals on Kickstarter and on the company's website. Shadow of the Eternals is a "sort-of" spiritual successor to Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem.

In the video Dyack addresses a laundry list of complaints about his management of Silicon Knights and points made in the Kotaku articles and other reports that followed. We'll let the video speak for itself but the key take-away is that Dyack is no longer running the business side of game development at Precursor Games like he did at Silicon Knights; that they have an amicable relationship with both Activision and Nintendo; and that most of the reports about his company's troubles were based on anonymous sources.. The most important thing Dyack says is that he made a lot of mistakes. Even if he doesn't acknowledge all of them, this is a pretty hard thing to do for anyone in any business.

Check out the video to your left. NeoGAF offers a decent rundown of points on this whole ordeal here.
