After a long and emotionally trying development process, That Dragon, Cancer comes out on January 12, delivering an interactive biographical portrait of a family’s fight against childhood cancer.
In 2013, Ouya set aside $1 million to help fund a bunch of games on Kickstarter, so long as the games showed up on Ouya first. Some games have already come out, but many have not. For those still in development, Ouya has reportedly informed them the funds no longer exist.
The heartfelt and deeply personal indie game That Dragon, Cancer is shifting gears. Ryan Green, who is making the game to tell the story of his son's death from terminal cancer, says that it will no longer be an Ouya exclusive. Green and his co-developers have launched a new Kickstarter to help finish it in 2015.
Standing out in a crowded sea of retro-style indie games is no easy task, but 16-bit RPG Elysian Shadows caught my attention recently for what it's promising to do differently.
"Jesus, I can't even watch this," the man sitting next to me whispered, fidgeting in his seat. The screen in front of us played a home video of an infant child named Joel Green, gurgling happily as he played with a bunch of golden retriever puppies.
The revival of Reading Rainbow is now one of the top 5 Kickstarter campaigns ever, and to celebrate the other four with that distinction are partnering with RR for special things. And Ouya is one of that select group.

Last week during the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Huawei, Chinese hardware maker and subject of international security concerns, showed off their newest toy — the Huawei TRON. According to the Chinese media, the TRON can supposedly play PS3 games. PS3 games that have been set for the Huawei TRON.

It's a nice day for a white Ouya. Just in time for Christmas, the tiny Android console gets its first limited edition recolor. At $129.99 it's $30 more than the standard edition, but it's also $30 prettier and comes with 16GB storage instead of 8GB, so it all works out.
Dinosaurs make everything better—and racing games are no exception.
At $249.99, Mad Catz's M.O.J.O. Android micro-console will cost two and a half times more than the Ouya when it's released December 10. It'll also be six times as powerful with the potential to stream games from your PC to your television set, so I'd say it evens out.
A few weeks back, Ouya launched a campaign with the very best intentions. They wanted to encourage developers to make games for their platform, by matching the amount of money made in a Kickstarter. Thing is, this is the real world, and it didn't work out too great.
Ouya's "Free the Games Fund" promises to double a crowdfunded game's money—if it releases exclusively for the Android console. The potential for abuse should be apparent to anyone with a brain.
