On the heels of our release of the OUYA ODK and Dev Consoles, we’re honored to announce CREATE, the first ever OUYA game jam. Presented by Kill Screen, CREATE is a fast-paced 10-day competition in which developers worldwide can get inventive, and make playable prototype games. We have some phenomenal judges, and even a real prize pool.
If you’re a game developer, you’re qualified to compete in CREATE for $45,000 in prizes contributed by some wonderful OUYA supporters. You don’t even need an OUYA. Just start coding.
It works like this:
- Create a *new* game for OUYA – any style, any genre as long as it’s playable (and, of course, fun).
- Submit your playable OUYA game prototype between January 14 and 23 to Kill Screen for review.
- Show off a video of your demo on YouTube, tweet it up on Twitter, gather your fans on Facebook to gain gamer support and awareness of your OUYA game. Social media support will be one of the criteria used to select finalists.
When entries close on January 23, your game will be reviewed by the good people at Kill Screen, and then a handpicked team of industry pros including Phil Fish of Fez; Canabalt’s Adam Saltsman; Zach Gage, maker of SpellTower; Ed Fries, co-creator of Xbox and OUYA advisor; Felicia Day of The Guild, and more!
This is your opportunity to make that dream game into an OUYA reality. For more information on rules, prizes and all the fine print, click here.
So what are you waiting for? Get CREATE-ing!
