Fund your OUYA Game Development in 5 Steps (#FreetheGames)

By | on July 18, 2013 | Comments

OUYA’s #FreeTheGames Fund, created by OUYA to support developers making new and creative console games. OUYA will match your pledge dollar-for-dollar if you raise a minimum of $50,000. To be eligible for this match, you have to commit that the game will be an OUYA exclusive for six months—no matter what.

1. CREATE IT.

Then set-up your Kickstarter campaign. Include the below copy in the main body of your campaign description to alert potential backers about the Fund and encourage participation and support.

2. SIGN IT UP.

Email freethegames@OUYA.tv with your campaign details so that the OUYA team can help promote your #FreeTheGames campaign across the land and (2) agree to the terms and conditions. These steps are required before you launch on Kickstarter to be eligible, so please be sure to complete them.

3. LAUNCH IT.

Launch your Kickstarter game campaign on or after August 9, 2013 and have it end any day on or before August 10, 2014.

4. FUND IT.

To be eligible for matching, you need to (a) meet your funding goal and (b) raise a minimum of $50,000.

5. 2X IT.

If your Kickstarter campaign meets the funding requirements and you agree to be exclusive on OUYA for a minimum of six months—beginning the day you launch on OUYA—OUYA will match 100% of the total amount raised up to $250,000 (until the $1M fund is tapped).

OUYA is also giving an additional $100,000 to the qualifying campaign that raises the most money during the Free the Games Fund period.
