Ouya giving creators money for six-month-timed exclusives.

The Ouya company has announced a new initiative to help fund ambitious Kickstarter projects developed for Ouya.

Dubbed the “Free the Games Fund,” Ouya has set aside $1 million to fund projects launched after August 9, 2013 and ended by August 10, 2014. The game must be Ouya-exclusive for at least the first six months and have a budget of $50,000 or greater. Ouya will match 100 percent of the funds raised for the projects that successfully reach their goals, with a maximum of $250,000 per project. The Kickstarter project that raises the most during the campaign period will receive an additional $100,000.

Game creators can read up on further details at the campaign’s official website.

    Microsoft does this and it worked last gen. If they get big enough titles it could help them. Not getting it either way.

      The difference between Microsoft and Ouya is that Microsoft has money.

    I wouldn’t take this deal if it were a million per game, but that’s me.

    I think this is a really cool and very strategic idea. Helps the platform get exclusives and allows for new game ideas from smaller devs. Hmm, I wonder what the other conditions are.

    … Then I’d just wait six months to play them, if any of them are worth the time.
