|Overview:||2013 marked the entry of brand new territory for game creators. Led by visionary entrepreneurs, industry veterans, support from the core community, and a few dreamers, a new wave of gaming hardware is filling the market from unexpected corners of the industry. Inspired by promising indie talent, frictionless online game stores, and new ways to fund development and sell games, these new hardware makers and game platforms are becoming a springboard of innovation, experimentation, and creativity for the gaming business. OUYA has been part of this rogue band since the beginning -- leaping into uncharted territory and steadily enabling a new generation of developers like Matt Thorson, Fayju, GoldenTricycle, Eric Froemling, Mighty Rabbit Studios, and others to get creativity into living rooms quicker, cheaper and with less red tape.|
