The lights are on
The first game being developed exclusively for Ouya is an episodic prequel of Human Element, the first project from Robotoki.
Robert Bowling, the studio's president, says he personally donated $10,000 to the Kickstarter project. The prequel games will center on the zombie outbreak as it begins in the game's universe. The full title, which is expected to launch in 2015, takes place 35 years after the outbreak.

It is encouraging to already see exclusive title for the Ouya, the quality of these titles is yet to be seen, but it is a start.
This guy is amazing. And it shows real promise for the console in general, making it an actual viable contender in the marketplace. Definitely looking forward to this.
Ok. Must Buy already.
This is going to be an interesting thing to watch for in the future!
I guess it'll help as a promo for the software and hardware respectively...
Excellent choice for a first game. Wonder what the future holds for the console.
Oh heck yes, nice to see some developer support in an actual title.
Hopefully this console makes it. It might be a breath of fresh air.
I still not entirely convinced on this platform. I think it sounds pretty cool having an open Android console designed for games. I also like how this console is really trying to push technology forward by going for a cheap all digital hardware model. That said I just don't really see a reason for the console to exist at all. It will eventually depend on the quality of games so until then I'll just adopt a wait and see approach.
