Silicon Knights is getting a little assistance from the Canadian government in the form of $4 Million loonies. This money will be used to hire and retain as many as 65 employees to start work on a new multi-platform title.
It was only a couple years ago that the house that created Too Human received $1 million from the Ontario Media Development Corporation to create a prototype third-person action/psychological thriller game that was to be released this year. So far we have not heard any more of this title or the title in which the $4 million will pay. The only news is that this new title is expected to take anywhere from 2-5 years to complete.

Activision and Canadian developer Beenox has revealed their new project and it appears to be a doozie of a game. Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions will feature 4 versions of our favourite web slinger as they attempt to collect the four pieces of a magical artifact called the "Tablet of Order and Chaos" which got broken during a botched robbery attempt. So far it appears that players will get to control the Amazing, Noir and 2099 versions of Spider-Man with the 4th and final version remaining a secret (hoping for Zombie Spider-Man). The story in Shattered Dimensions is being penned by fames Amazing Spider-Man writer Dan Slott. The game is expected for a fall released on all majour consoles. Read on for more information.
