Ouya’s Free the Games Fund Seeks to Help Developers
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.
