Ouya launches fund-matching Kickstarter project for games

@ 2013/07/18
Ouya has just announced that it'll launch a second Kickstarter campaign in order to speed up the development pace of games for its nascent console. The gaming outfit will match any pledges between $50,000 and $250,000 from developers during the new campaign, and give $100,000 to whoever kicks in the most. The only caveat is that successful candidates will be required to make their games exclusively for the console during a six month window. Ouya had a huge initial success when it moved over 10,000 developer kits while raising $8.5 million in its initial Kickstarter drive. It also sold out of its initial run at stores, but the rush of a new console for those buyers will soon where off if they can't get games to play on it.
