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.

You can find all of the nitty-gritty details on the Fund's official site here. Let us know your thoughts about this program in the comments section below and whether or not you think it's a good idea.
