Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman announced at DICE today that the Android-based console will partner with Tim Schafer and Double Fine Productions, along with Words With Friends creator Paul Bettner. Double Fine will bring The Cave and Reds to Ouya, while Paul Bettner's Verse studio is currently in development on two unannounced titles for the console.

"Ouya and Verse are nothing less than The Return Of Console Gaming. The last big wave was mobile ... Words With Friends is the most played game across all mobile platforms," said Bettner. "And yet I believe we're about to see another disruption even bigger than this last. Gamers want the App Store in their living room. Ouya will be the first to deliver it, and it's going to change everything. Again."

There are currently no release dates for the games by Double Fine of the Paul Bettner projects. The Ouya console will be available in June.
