Top 10 Ouya games we're most looking forward to playing

Ooh, yeah!
Product: Ouya | Publisher: Ouya Inc.
Ouya Android, thumbnail 1
As you may or may not know, the upcoming Android-powered 'unconsole' Ouya attracted a staggering $8.6 million in Kickstarter and PayPal donations in 2012.

Even more excitingly, we now know that Ouya Inc. will launch its high-profile microconsole in the US this summer. In June, to be precise.

Many of the games that'll be available for the Ouya will simply be ports of mobile titles, given how easy it will be to re-engineer Android games for the Ouya.

But, there will be some new games for the Ouya, too. New games that are built specifically for this pint-size gizmo. So, we've sifted through all the games that are rumoured to be bound for the Ouya and picked out what we believe are the ten most exciting ones.

Feel free to pop your thoughts in the comments section below whether you agree with our selections or not.

Double Fine Adventure

By Double Fine

We've been looking forward to Double Fine Adventure ever since its Kickstarter campaign went live last year.

In the same vein as Tim Schafer's - the founder of Double Fine - older games like Day of the Tentacle, Double Fine Adventure will be a classic point-and-click adventure.

Since that was revealed, though, Double Fine has confirmed that the Ouya will be the only home console on which you can play its Kickstarter sensation. Which is a rather big deal.

Shadowrun Online
By Cliffhanger Productions

A tactical turn-based RPG, set in the classic sci-fi fantasy world of Shadowrun? Oh, go on, then. Why not, eh.

Cliffhanger Productions, the team behind this new Shadowrun Online, describes it as a cross between Lord of the Rings and Blade Runner, which is more than enough to have us interested.

What's great is that the game is destined for multiple platforms (including PC, iOS, Android, as well as Ouya), and features cross-platform saving so that you can play a bit on your iPad, then pick up where you left off on Ouya. Neat.

Human Element Prequel
By Robotoki

This was the first Ouya-exclusive game announced, and it's definitely something to watch out for.

Developed by ex-Call of Duty strategist Robert Bowling, Human Element Prequel features a huge universe in which you can grow a character, familiarise yourself with the lore, and prepare yourself for the full experience.

By 'full experience', we mean the actual Human Element game, which is due for release sometime in 2015 across multiple platforms.

By Dinofarm Games

You liked 100 Rogues, right? Well, its developer, Dinofarm Games, is currently putting together Auro, another dungeon-crawler destined for the Ouya.

It's a roguelike, which means turn-based action and permadeath, and it should contain gameplay that is simple to learn, but very difficult to master.

The Dinofarm team has also teased us with the news that the game 'does' a few things that no roguelike has ever done before. To find out exactly what those elements are, we're going to have to wait a bit. Booo.

Super Retro Squad
By Exploding Rabbit

What we really need for Ouya Inc.'s brand-new games console is a retro platformer. You know, so that we can feel like we're plugging in the SNES all over again. And feel all warm inside.

Super Retro Squad
may just give us the chance to fulfil that fantasy, with characters, levels, and backdrops designed to look as though they have been plucked straight out of the '90s.

In terms of credentials, Super Retro Squad's development, errr, squad boasts plenty. It was behind Super Mario Bros. Crossover - the game in which you can play through the whole of Super Mario Bros. with multiple different Nintendo characters - after all.

Steam Bandits: Outpost
By Iocaine studios

Apparently, Steam Bandits: Outpost is the first in a series of interconnected titles based in the Steam Bandits universe.

Outpost itself is a city-building game inspired by the likes of Civilization, Sim City, Animal Crossing, Tropico, and The Sims. Yes, you should be excited. Very excited.

We're a little bit wary, mind, since it's a free-to-play game and will possibly feature "energy" and all that rubbish. But, Steam Bandits: Outpost developer Iocaine Studios says it's going to be following the F2P examples of League of Legends and Team Fortress 2, so there's hope for the game yet.

Legends of Aethereus
By Three Gates

Sometimes, you just want to sit back with a gigantic open-world RPG and cut monsters into pieces all night.

In Legends of Aethereus, its creator promises you can do just that... and some. It's an adventure that is aimed at core gamers, you see. It's got crafting, customization, and a whole lot of lore.

Oh, there's multiplayer and co-op play, too, just in case you'd rather go at it with a friend or three.

Kaiju Combat
By Sunstone Games

Let's break away from the RPGs and city builders to bring you a fighting game with a difference.

Ever wanted to know who would win in a fight between Godzilla and Cthulhu? Well, now you can find out by playing monster battler Kaiju Combat.

Other playable beasts on the Kaiju Combat menu include Gamera, Ultraman, Zone Fighter, and the Stay Puft man from Ghostbusters.

By Aoineko Studios

Here's another RPG that's heading to the Ouya! Saying that, it's a little different from your average role-playing game, for it revolves around stealth.

In Kitaru, there are mini-games to complete - alongside the regular turn-based battling - and there's a huge focus on storytelling and third-person exploration.

Interestingly, Aoineko Studios is really going all-out on the story elements, even drafting in some minor celebrities - such as Yuri Lowenthal, the guy who voiced the prince in the Prince of Persia games - to do voice work.

Saturday Morning RPG
By Mighty Rabbit Studio

We already know that this episodic retro RPG is the bee's knees, for we said as much in our review of the iOS version of Saturday Morning RPG last spring.

But, with multiple new episodes going live since then, it's definitely going to be worth jumping back into. Plus, the Ouya may well prove to be the perfect platform on which to experience this particular saga.

If you like Japanese RPGs and popular culture from the '80s, this is going to be right up your street.
