The console is looking to offer a stronger local multiplayer experience
Twelve more games have been announced for the Ouya, scheduled to be presented during this week's Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.The proposed games range from experimental projects to multiplayer zerg fests that will gather crowds around chouches all around the world.
Ouya, the Android based console, isn't winning any popularity contests, despite the initial positive reaction from the community. Its user base has failed to deliver strong sales and developers aren't flocking to it, but it has been a launch pad for several indie devs, some of which have even provided platform exclusive games.
Nonetheless, the Ouya is still planning for a brighter future, having announced plans for deployment on other manufacturer's hardware platforms and constantly adding new games to its quite expansive roster.
The new games coming to the Ouya in the near future are as follows:
Toto Temple Deluxe by Juicy Beast
Duck Game by Landon Podbielski
That Dragon, Cancer by Ryan Green and Josh Larson
Cascade – Fayju
Reagan Gorbachev – Team2Bit
Laza Knitez!! Glitchnap
Neverending Nightmares – Infinitap Games
Thralled – Thralled Team
Broken Age – Double Fine
Whispering Willows – Night Light Interactive
Knight & Damsel – MK Ultra Games
Many of the developers will also be present at the Ouya booth, and interested gamers in the area can get one-on-one time with the games and the devs on the show floor at Booth 316.
The local multiplayer arena is starting to shape up on the Ouya, which is an important step for the small cube to become established as a proper console, as having a group of friends all bunched together and fighting on one screen has been the most prominent feature of console gaming.
As such, Laza Knitez!! presents a multiplayer jousting competition that takes place in space, Toto Temple Deluxe also challenges players to holding on to a goat for as long as possible while the other participants are dashing around attempting to knock it loose, in order to sprint away and boost their own score.
Duck Game continues the local multiplayer frantic action, offering players a variety of ducks in hats and an irresponsible amount of firearms, while Reagan Gorbachev presents a funky top-down single-player video game adventure similar to Hotline Miami, but without the neon and gore.
Double Fine's beautiful adventure game Broken Age needs no introduction, and more information on the other games as well as trailers can be found in the official announcement on the Ouya website.
