That all the coins are Canadian coins, and the bus is a TTC bus? I loved it.

That's a nice touch. I like attention to detail in games.

Ya, I'm not saying it's out of place or anything, I just wondered if other folks noticed.

@DonutFever: yeah it's the same in the books
lots of tiny details

It seems odd to me that this is considered some special attention to detail. There's no magical rule that says video game currency must default to American dollars, or Euros for that matter. I live in Toronto and if I were going to make a game with currency and buses, it would take some level of conscious effort for me not to use canadian coinage and TTC buses, because those are what I know.

Most games money is not descriptive at all, like a coin just being a gold circle.

Canadian Money is worth more just based on the fact that there is a Caribou on it's quarter.

The comic actually takes place in Canada, it wasn't just made there.

Sarcasm is very hard to detect in a forum post. Also, when you don't capitalize the beginnings of your sentences or your I's it just looks like you're trolling.
