OUYA: A New Kind of Video Game Console

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Wed Aug 15, 2012 11:42 am

@Erndog2k Decided to compare old N64 specs to OUYA for a giggle. Then a thought occurred to me, OUYA presents a major opportunity for re-makes/re-releases of old games.

Then another thought occurred to me... emulators on android are becoming more stable all the time and this could allow OUYA to become almost any old console you want. The little OUYA could be a NES/SNES/N64/GB/Genisis/SGS/VB all in one little box.

How awesome is that?

[QUOTE=LobsterSundew]Secondly, about the games. I don't see any big problems keeping Construct 2 games from running on Ouya that aren't already being solved for exporting to Android. Evilot is a game targeting Ouya's launch that is using HTML5. Eventually an Ouya exporter for Construct 2 before the end of 2013 would be nice and I would experiment with it.

Well, first of all, great and very informative post, @LobsterSundew

Also, as WebGL for android 4.0 was released some time ago as open source, I don't see a reason for construct games to run great on ouya if they just take some time to implement it into their android browser. Then a simple phonegap export would be enough to create an ouya game in c2.

This is a reply and expanded thoughts regarding the Ouya. Inspired by another post from. I bring it here because it's more appropriate :)


[QUOTE=California] Ouya Score: 62 "pass on"
http://gdgt.com/ouya/console/[/QUOTE]

There is a another thread on the forum concerning the Ouya where this post would be more appropriate. We are not here discussing the the merit of the console, but export support.

If the information included relevant information for exporting as in say "the Ouya reviews aren't that good, may not be a console that needs supporting" that at least has relevance.



Finally, for the important aspect. Export to the Ouya is important and it's not the reason that it's specifically for the Ouya; at least not too me. For me the Ouya is an entry point for Android console based gaming. Android is making an incredible market penetration, phones, tablets, but also moving towards TV devices, and even Android TV's. Will it be ever predominant OS. I can't say for sure, but the momentum right now is there. This means that Android in a twist could end up being a basic OS for TV's as much as Windows was for PC's.

Ouya is the first to sell the idea of the Android TV Game OS. So it really doesn't matter what the Ouya ranks now. it's the fact the movement has started and it's better to be there early, than later.

This then means Ouya export is important and it's exciting. This is the frontier of potential. This is where most say, meh, not worth exploring the new world. It's uncivilized, lacks cities, structures. But for the dreams, it's a world that can be defined and created. Where the current rules do not apply. As an example the entire structrual market on the IOS is nothing like is on the PC. yet year by year the quality of games goes up in the new structure. New companies are formed and can flourish. And drown of course :D

So the reply of "Pass on it: 60, with a link" and no opinion. I'm sure you can write more :)jayderyu2013-06-30 00:10:51

Not to mention the Ouya platform is going towards a more iPad style releases with new models every year or so. No one looked at the iPad and said "pass", people made games, OS improved, newer versions came out, games improved. It's just the beginning and things will improve constantly for both OS and yearly for hardware.

oh I remember those days. When Apple first released the IOS with the App Store. The AppStore was a joke at the time. Now you have

A PC game that is near a 1:1 gameplay port. I hear a few maps didn't make, no DLC or Multiplayer. But the core gameplay is there. :D

then there is

Which is iPad NOW, and Android "soon". Seriously. yeah Ouya isn't great now, but the platform has a lot of merit in the future. And the preparing the foundation is what's important :)

I agree. I think the Ouya is very exciting, and if it comes to my country I'll be sure to pick it up. We have a few game devs locally who are already tinkering with it, just because it is now the easiest way to get a game into someone's living room. That's a powerful place to be.

It'll get there, I have no doubts about it. It'll never rival the PS or Xbox, but it's not meant to. I don't think it's really meant to rival anything. It's so cheap that anyone who considers themselves a core gamer could afford to pick one up just for curiosity's sake, and anyone who considers themselves a casual gamer might grab one just because it's so cheap.
