Update #4

Update #4: Our first exclusive game

We’d like to introduce you to Robert Bowling, president of the game developer Robotoki, and an early backer of our Kickstarter. You might recognize Robert from his work with the Call of Duty franchise.

Earlier today, from his Twitter account (@fourzerotwo), Robert hinted that he had some news.

Well here it is: OUYA gamers will get FIRST access to the ravaged world of his post-zombie-apocalyptic game, Human Element.

Robotoki is the first studio to commit to building a game exclusively for OUYA: an episodic prequel that will set the stage for his eventual release of Human Element in 2015.

Welcome to OUYA, Robert!

      @Jeremy LaBove
      Actually this kind of plot (zombie apocalypse and a lone man and girl child survive together among the zombies) isn't something original. I mean look at "The Walking Dead" (the game) - it's starting in that same manner...

    17. Images%20(2).small

      Creator Jeremy LaBove on July 23, 2012

      zombie apocalypse? a lone man and girl child survive together among the zombies? hate to break it to you, but Naughty Dog is already making this game. they're calling it "The Last of Us". i mean, this looks sweet. i'm really happy to hear it, but still... there's no way you didn't know about that other game already, right?

      I bet this is what most AAA companies will do for OUYA... I've seen EA already has a few Android games, but it is good none the less. Might not get the big titles, but we will get some special content =)

      Dang! I'm a few years past thirty. I'm not really believing this is a scam but I do want this to succeed so badly and don't want march release to slip into christmas 2013 into sometime in 2014, etc etc.
      The DIY console makes me itch to get my commodore systems back out. I do love the idea.

      Creator Kilgary on July 20, 2012

      Since the game proper launches in 2015, it seems highly improbable that this would be seen on Ouya in 2013. With so little lead time, I am assuming the Ouya team is hitting up Android and iOS developers that were already planning on launching mobile titles at that time and asking them to port their upcoming titles over to Ouya for launch. Would love to see something using the Unreal 3 engine and the Ouya controls (rather than point and click navigation like Infinity Blade and Dark Meadow) at launch. Heck, I'd love to see the older top titles from Rovio, Zynga, and Gameloft ported to Ouya controls at launch. Nova 3 would be exciting to play with twin sticks!

      If you are really scared, there's not much to tell you. If you honestly think this is a scam, with the team behind this, then wow...

      I'm assuming your nearly 40 years old? At this point you should know the press loves to make negative articles because it sells. This won't be a scam. 5 million is nothing once you factor in the cost of the systems. This isn't two kids in a basement. These are known professionals in the industry. If you honestly believe the few tech sites out there trying to make you scared of the boogie man, just remember monsters aren't real.

      Creator Patrick Smith on July 20, 2012

      Well like they said before, there will be a free to play component, which could be just as much as a demo, and then they could charge an actual price to play the whole thing. I'm completely fine with that, and I think a lot of gamers will be too. The problem with mobile platforms (IMO) is that a lot of the people using them aren't really gamers, they just expect free crap and if there's ads, they get mad. This will be much more postured towards gaming, so I don't think we'll see as much of that crowd. But then again I could be wrong, I just hope I'm not.

      Creator Kofex on July 20, 2012

      A real mistery is "how advertisment will work?" is an interesting point since many app/games on Android are free because they get some money from them... but we are dealing with a joystick not a touch screen... a real mistery....

      yay, we get basically an advertisement for a game that is going to be released in 2015. I wonder how much they had to pay for that gem.

    46. Missing_small

      Creator Doktor Jones on July 20, 2012

      @Manuel Ruf: The OUYA ecosystem is going to be "free to play", meaning every game has to have some free content -- whether that be a demo, or the entire game. Also, Android-based games on the whole tend to be vastly cheaper than 360/PS3 titles because the development teams are usually much smaller and the development cycle is usually shorter. So even if a game's F2P offering is only a demo, the full version will likely cost less than $30 (and most games will probably weigh in at/under $10).

    47. Missing_small

      Creator Kofex on July 20, 2012

      It's risky for developer since he will launch an episode of a game that should be ready for 2015 so... people at Robotoki will have to hurry to release a stable version of it and if customers doesn't like it then they will be in much troubles, so it's much riskier than you think.
      In other hand it's just the first announcement of an exclusive game for Ouya, we will hear of much more titles, I'm sure.
      Keep up the good work!
      But... Ouya team, pleaseeeeee tell me how to get a second console for development!!!! is the 3rd time I ask it!! THANKS!

      Creator Jonas on July 20, 2012

      It sounds like a serious product to me.
      Also on Ouya it has to be "free to play", so I can imagine the first episode will be free and you can pay for additional episodes if you enjoyed it.

    49. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Manuel Ruf on July 20, 2012

      @Leonid Kalinichenko, episodic can work great (As you can see at "The Walking Dead").
      Its true that its less risky but that doesnt have to be bad for us consumers.

      I only hope in general that the prices will be much lower then on normal consoles like the xbox360/ps3.
      Cause im not willed to pay that much money for a Game !
      Thats why i normaly play via Computer. But OUYA would be an option for Couche evenings!

      Creator Leonid Kalinichenko on July 20, 2012

      It does not looks like a serious product. More like a marketing of both companies. Episodic prequel... Are you serious? It's like a Final Fantasy XIII gallery for iOS - it was an exclusive content but never a serious product. You know what I mean.
      Also episodic is always a less risky for developers and more expensive for costumers.
