Silicon Knights (SK) was a Canadian video game developer best known for creating the GameCube games Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem and Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes. In 2007, the company went into a legal battle with Epic Games, regarding misuse of the latter's Unreal Engine. In 2012, Epic won the battle, and as a result, SK went bankrupt in 2014.

Logo: Seven blue runic symbols, arranged in a circular pattern, fade in. Blue rings emerge from them as the camera moves backwards into a blue patterned wall with the words "Putting magic into software" in the middle. We then move backwards until we see a motherboard-esque cube with a dumbbell-shape in the middle. A sword strikes the top of it as it rotates while the words "SILICON KNIGHTS®" appear. The cube stops rotating and the top of it flashes.

Technique: CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: A darkful noise followed by a phrase spoken by a man. Then, we hear a sword slash when the sword hits the cube.

Availability: Seen on Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem, right after the Nintendo logo.
