Mercenary Kings coming to OUYA!

We've been thinking about it for a while, but now it's official: Mercenary Kings will be coming to OUYA!

Since we'll be needing some extra time to port the game code, the OUYA version will be released at a later date than the PC version.

Even though this is not 100% confirmed, Julie Uhrman told us in an email that they're planning to support download codes on OUYA. This means that, if codes are supported, all backers who pledged $15 or more will get Mercenary Kings for free on OUYA in addition to the Steam key!

Also, since there's only 7 days left to our Kickstarter campaign, we will be giving away one copy of Wizorb iOS on Tribute Games Facebook page and another one on Twitter everyday until time's up!

      this game looks awesome. i pledged just for the CHANCE to grab this on my OUYA.

    2. Creator Zach Willard on September 7, 2012

      I am so excited for this!

      Porting to OUYA sounds like a bit of a waste. You're not really going to be increasing the number of people who can play your game, you'll just be wasting time on a port for people who already own or otherwise have access to your game, and time is money, so the port will wind up losing you money. I would have waited until after the OUYA has either proven itself or failed to prove itself before pledging to make an OUYA port.

      Id' love to play this in front of the TV. Blasted, now I'm thinking about pre-ordering the OUYA as well :)

    5. Creator Tribute Games on September 6, 2012

      @Matthew Winter: Yes, Xbox 360 controllers will be supported on PC.

    6. Creator Chip Andre on September 6, 2012

      The game looks great, and as a OUYA backer, this announcement pushed me over the edge to back your project as well. Good luck!

    7. Creator Matthew Winter on September 6, 2012

      Actually, will there be 360 controller support? That'd be rad!

    8. Creator Matthew Winter on September 6, 2012

      Ehhhhhhh, I'd prefer to just plug my computer into the TV and use my 360 controller.

    9. Creator José Antonio Sánchez on September 6, 2012

      Great news!
      First project I backed was OUYA and second Mercenary Kings, so it´s great to hear this.

    10. Creator Kory Calvert on September 6, 2012

      i also baked ouya so getting a code so i can play it on that is sweet

    11. Creator Jeremy Lowrey on September 5, 2012

      I'm so happy. Thank you!

    12. Creator Matt Englund on September 5, 2012

      Ok now this is fantastic news.

    13. Creator Hemisphere Ormsby on September 5, 2012

      stoked i backed the OUYA now

    14. Creator Jelly Paladin on September 5, 2012

      Excellent! All else being equal, I've always preferred a TV over a computer monitor.

    15. Creator Tribute Games on September 5, 2012

      @Ivan Yagolnikov: You took the words right out of my mouth. ^_^

    16. Creator DrDrew on September 5, 2012

      Fantastic. This should be fun. Now I need to buy more Ouya controllers!

    17. Creator Ivan Yagolnikov on September 5, 2012

      @Kris -- OUYA has a controller with buttons; if they want to port MK to other Android devices or iOS, they'd have to implement touch input and control scheme so that'd be additional work.

    18. Creator Bronson on September 5, 2012

      meh, nothing special to me but good job anyways!

    19. Creator Pink-Pummy on September 5, 2012

      Since I am in on getting an ouya this is some fantastic news :) looking forward to that! Whenever that may be ;D

    20. Creator Evan Lavino on September 5, 2012

      This would be awesome. I feel like this game will be great on the big screen.

    21. Creator Kyle Ferrin on September 5, 2012

      Best news of the day for me. Sweet sweet sweet.

    22. Creator Sebastian Alexander (deleted) on September 5, 2012

      Great news! This game looks awesome and i'm very happy that i will get it on my Ouya:)

    23. Creator Arthur de Pádua on September 5, 2012

      well, just don't care about OUYA... don't see any benefit about playing any game on this console. And i don't believe on Ouya hype at all.

      But ok! Above all things, make mercenary kings a good game! :]
      I loved wizord and bought it for me and gave another copy to my girlfriend on launch day, on steam :]

      Keep on the good work!

    24. Creator Inquisitioner on September 5, 2012

      Now im pissed for missing to back OUYA! Lol

    25. Creator Nathan Cooper - Chasing ∞ on September 5, 2012

      whoot! my OUYA is getting that much better!

    26. Creator Owen Johnson on September 5, 2012

      Great call, you just made me more confident about my OUYA purchase :).

    27. Creator Kris Aubuchon on September 5, 2012

      So does this ultimately mean that Mercenary Kings will come to Android devices with similar specs (considering that the OUYA is basically an Android box)?

    28. Creator Jonathan Batten on September 5, 2012

      That's pretty sweet. OUYA just got that bit better :)
      Good work Tribute! Can't wait till Mercenary Kings get's released....

    29. Creator Freak_Lord on September 5, 2012

      Sounds great!! Thanks!!
