I have decided to attempt to build a game in 10 days. The game will be submitted to Create, a contest being put on by Ouya and Kill Screen. If you don’t know, the Ouya is an upcoming game console recently funded via Kickstarter. It is a small, open, Android based console with HDMI out, wifi and bluetooth wireless controllers, similar in shape to the Xbox 360 controller. They are expected to ship to backers sometime in March.
Back to the contest – the rules are simple, build a game in 10 days and a panel of judges picks the winners out of a few categories. The prizes are quite awesome, ranging from an Ouya dev console all the way up to $20,000! The way I see it is I win either way – I end up with a decent game concept that is well on its way to be an Ouya launch title, and I could end up with some great prizes along the way.
So anyways, the point of this post is that I have begun making my game. I will be posting updates here in the coming days with actual screenshots and maybe some video once I have something more tangible.
Oh yeah, one more thing. This will be my first game built entirely using Unity 3D. Also my first 3D game. So many firsts in the coming days.
