OCE is starting to. There is the OCE Smart Start fund and it is fairly simple process to apply for the grant. There is not too much of an ecosystem of support, but the money is nice. http://www.oce-ontario.org/programs/entrepreneurship-program...

Not sure why they are excluding older entrepreneurs (18-29 is the required age). I went to UofT, I'm in my mid-30s and in the Toronto area .. I get excluded from the whole Waterloo ecosystem, and programs such as this one. What I have around me is Mars, which doesn't make sense to me. Frankly, there seems to be a better tech culture around Ryerson (again, targeted at their students) than for my alma mater. We have Mars close by but as you can tell, I don't see how it benefits fledgling entrepreneurs.

We're working on it for iPad. http:///www.hyperpad.com Still fairly early, and not where we want it. But it's coming along...

You're focusing on books at the moment? looks like a neat little platform. Kudos, going to pass this along to some animator friends

-----


Yes, but we're thinking of changing to mobile games (what we originally started with).

Have you looked at the Stinky Board? http://stinkyboard.com/ Should be able to map standard WSAD keys to it, then use mouse for aiming.

Looks like a great product, but what a terrible name

Thanks for this - this looks cool!

Can this perspective/stack a bunch of layers in a single psd to get a result similar to the images on bottom 1/3rd of the page (http://perspectivemockups.com/v2/wp-content/themes/Perspecti...)

We have files with multiple layers and need a quick and easy way to display the layers in a perspective stack.

The Unreal Tournament series has some of the best AI. They react and behave very human. In UT 2003 (or 2004 can't remember) they even respond to voice commands.

There was even a programmed Unreal Tournament bot that passed the turing test.

This was our experience as well. We used it for a few things, but in the end it was faster for us to just create a @2x image.

Checkout www.polycount.com. It is mainly a community of 3D game artists, but there are a lot of talented people there who do other game related art.

There is a hiring forum section where you can post the job.

We also developed our own visual programming system for our free iPad app GamePress (http://www.gamepressapp.com). Our system works like a flow chart of actions and events. Designed for tablets. It is fairly powerful as well, with lots of great additions being added.

Have you looked at something like the iPad app codea? http://twolivesleft.com/Codea It uses LUA for the scripting language, and a really nice IDE.

We also did something similar, except it is all visual programming (I know you said you are not interested in visual).. Its called GamePress (http://www.gamepressapp.com), free iPad app check it out :)

In our app users can sign in with Facebook, or make their own app specific account. We don't force users to use facebook.

A lot of our good (active) users are ones who make a custom account.

Another benefit for us offering an option is that we have found a place in schools.. But this is pretty specific to our app and may not apply to you at all.

We also give our users the option to not sign in at all, but limit what they can do (no community access)
