So a little while ago I blogged about this mentoring thing I was doing with Telefilm. It's been pretty fun, and I learned a bunch and got to meet some cool people. One of the two teams I was mentoring in that initial round the guys at Hothead Games in Vancouver - made it through the next round with their awesome concept 'SWARM!' which relies on some innovative machine learning technology to make some interesting new gameplay mechanics and potentially a really fun game.
Anyway, now we're into the next round and I have signed on to mentor another team. Since I'm not mentoring two teams this time, I don't see any reason why anyone would care if I say which one. The team I'm mentoring now is a Montreal based team working on a sort of brain-training type of game called MindHabits Trainer that aims to help players train and improve their social intelligence.
There is a demo of a small part of the game playable on their site here. Sadly, I can't seem to get the shockwave object that they provide the code to embed to work in my blog, so I can't just have it playable right in my main page.
