The lights are on
In a new blog post, Ouya's Kellee Santiago informed
developers for the Android console system that they could begin to upload games
to the Ouya app store to ensure they are available on the system's March 28
Santiago wrote, "Devs, as of today, any game you upload to Ouya on http://devs.ouya.tvwill be available for real on Ouya when units
start to ship on March 28. This means the games you have in the store after
today will be in gamers' hands when they receive their Ouya units - starting
first with our Kickstarter backers, and continuing on through June when we
launch to anyone and everyone who wants to get Ouya."
She also revealed that the company would be creating short
documentaries on the stories behind the development of the games that become
most popular with Ouya owners. Santiago said, "We will take the top three games (by total
gamer time spent playing during the first six weeks that Ouya is in gamers'
hands), and... make you famous! Ouya is investing in a series of short
documentaries to tell developers' stories. We want to share your process, ups
and downs, everything that goes into making the thing that you love - and that
game we love to play."
