Ouya, the tiny, Kickstarted Android console, is officially dead. Razer announced that all services will be shut down June 25, 2019. So long, Ouya, and thanks for Towerfall.
Ugh. Not only did I back this thing on Kickstarter back in the day, I backed a limited edition version ($140), with the brushed brown metal finish. So the one I have even looks like a polished turd.
I didn’t really expect this thing to beat out any of the 3 gaming giants, but I at least expected it to carve out a niche audience and help bring indies into the industry in some form or fashion. We got Towerfall, so we’ll call that a small victory as we brush the dead box under the rug.
