Hopefully this helps along development on the Too Human sequel. That game could be awesome if a few of the kinks from the first are sorted out.

Silicon Knights?
Why not Factor 5? But I guess it's too late for them.

I don't see why this is news. The ontario government has an arts fund that gives independent game companies 20% off the cost of operations, major companies get 10%. Quebec paid $7.5 million for Warner Brothers to set up a studio in Montreal. It's investments like this that have made Canada the third-largest home to game developers.

This is why Canada's status will remain as being "America's hat."

As opposed to the United States being Canada's shorts? 
Wait, don't answer that. <_<
