Newly disclosed court documents for Silicon Knights' legal tussle with Epic Games have revealed the Too Human developer must destroy all games it has produced using Unreal Engine 3.

The documents, which were posted online by a NeoGAF user, state: "Not later than December 10, 2012, Silicon Knights shall destroy all versions of the Licensed Technology in its possession, including (but not limited to) the video game code and game engine code for Too Human, The Box/Ritualys, The Sandman, X-Men: Destiny, and Siren in the Maelstrom, all versions of the Unreal Engine 3, and all copies of any information obtained from the licensee restricted portions of the Unreal Developer Network."

The studio has also been instructed to cease production of all these games, at its own expense.

"Silicon Knights shall cease producing or distributing Too Human, The Box/Riualyst, The Sandman, X-Men: Destiny, and Siren in the Maelstron, and shall recall and destroy (at the expense of Silicon Knights) all unsold copies of Too Human, The Box/Ritualyst, The Sandman, X-Men: Destiny, and Siren in the Maelstrom."

Silicon Knights' lengthy legal dispute with Epic Games concluded in May. A North Carolina court found "for Epic on all counts" and ordered Silicon Knights to pay Epic $4.5 million in damages.

A Silicon Knights spokesperson was unable to comment at the time and the North Carolina court declined to discuss the matter.
