Ouya launching new Kickstarter fund to boost exclusive game development

Ouya is set to open a new $1 million fund to help boost successful Kickstarter projects.

The ‘Free the Games Fund’ will back developers bringing their games exclusively to its Android console, and will match donations of successfully crowdfunded projects on Kickstarter from $50,000 up to $250,000.

The initiative will begin from August 9th 2013, and will run until August 10th 2014, and will only apply to campaigns launched during this timeframe.

Games must raise a minimum of $50,000 through Kickstarter to be eligible. Ouya exclusivity is also required for a period of at least six months.
