OUYA Console Has the Attention of Indie Developers

Posted by | July 17, 2012

OUYA is a Kickstarter attempt at building a console that plays downloaded games and offers an open hardware standard so people can monkey around with the machine itself. The pitch was aimed at gamers who play indie titles, and the indie game community has turned toward the console with cautious optimism. OUYA’s Kickstarter pitch has raised about five-million dollars so far, which is rather stunning. It’s obvious gamers want this thing, now all OUYA needs is developers and to actually exist in reality. Gamasutra has the story.

    That whole “actually exist in reality” thing is a big deal for developers. It’s easy to make promises, but how do you deal with the issues that spring up in the wild? Until the OUYA people provide more answers, it will be impossible for developers to commit to the console.

    Whether five-million dollars buys those answers remains an open question.
