Ouya's Free the Games Fund Seeks to Help DevelopersJohn Llewellyn Martin |
The folks at Ouya are looking to help jumpstart developers' Kickstarter campaigns with their Free the Games Fund.
The Ouya team have set up $1M in order to help fund popular Kickstarter games. If a developer chooses to participate in the program, they'll have their funding matched by Ouya.
Campaigns need to reach their funding goal and have raised a minimum of $50,000 in order to be eligible for the Free the Games Fund. If this happens and the developers agree to be Ouya-exclusive for six months, Ouya will match the total amount raised up to $250,000 or until the $1M allocated to the fund has been spent.
The campaign that raises the most amount of money during the Free the Games Fund period will also receive a bonus $100,000, making the pot even sweeter.
