I was a bit anti-Ouya in the run up its release – what I saw as its stance of championing “Free to Play” made me uncomfortable. Then, at some point before its release, they stopped using the term “Free to Play” and started using the term “Free to Try” – a concept I’m entirely cool with. That was enough to turn me from anti-Ouya to Ouya-neutral – it took getting my hands on one for 10 minutes to make me pro-Ouya. This thing is awesome.
For fun, I ported a bunch of my old flash games to it! Here’s the complete list:
Don’t Look Back
I’m pretty sure I’ll be porting VVVVVV and Super Hexagon to it too, when I have time to get around to them. Probably soon! Ish!
(p.s. If you’re a flash developer looking to port stuff of your own, you might find this joypad class I made useful (with modifications by Hulk Handsome). It requires the AIR 3.8 beta, and the SWC from this adobe tutorial.)
