Denis Dyack believes in the flag. Too Human was carved in maple. Silicon Knights is a child of the snowy north.

“I’m a patriot,” he told GI. “I’m a big believer in Canada, I’m a big believer in Ontario and I want the industry to grow here.”

The studio boss added that the future was bright for the Canadian games industry.

“When speaking to the government it may have been self-serving that they should look at our industry, but I’m a huge fan of Peter Drucker, and if you look at traditional industry, service-based industry, they are going to remain OK, he said.

“Manufacturing is in decline. But knowledge based industries where we fit in are going to grow.”
