    Sounds like a fun idea but an hour a level!?! I can't see enough people going to the effort of printing the level design sheet, finding a pencil, rubber, sharpener and ruler and spending the extra time formatting and adding audio...

    "then capture your drawing with an iOS device"

    Think you will need to expand to more devices than that for this to become successful. And yes I have to agree I am not entirely sure that people will put in the effort, this is the type of thing I would have loved 20 years ago, today, don't think people will be bothered.

    Maybe it's aimed at people who are 20 years younger than you?

    My kids would love this, and wouldn't need a 'big pixel' mode. They don't suffer from hand tremors and are very capable of drawing within the lines. (They are both 6)

    I read iOS and heard alarm bells. How much market share does android have now? are educational facilities all running giant mac suites?..... so then i read on and saw that android was a stretch goal? surely you want to be making this happen at the same time, or are you trying to get most of your funding out of the more defensive android users? knowing they may feel slighted by your iOS pushing? if you aim this at just the casual i-fad or iphone user, i think i can agree with the above statement that this seems a little doomed to failure

    the idea and the program itself however, looks the real deal if they can pull it off. i can see this being used in schools a lot, kids would eat this up. think at this point the platform choice may end up restricting this heavily
