Ouya's first exclusive game: a prequel to Robert Bowling's 'Human Element'
Of the many things we've heard about Ouya, we've yet to hear any developers straight up announce games for the Android-based, $99 console. Robert Bowling's Robotoki just became the first studio to do so, taking to Ouya's Kickstarter page to announce a prequel to his planned 2015 game, Human Element.

"Robotoki is the first studio to commit to building a game exclusively for Ouya: an episodic prequel that will set the stage for this eventual release of Human Element in 2015," Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman explains in the update. Human Element is a survival game set in – what else? – the zombie apocalypse. It's the first game from Robert Bowling's Robotoki studio, and the first project Bowling's worked on since exiting Call of Duty: Modern Warfare developer Infinity Ward earlier this year. It's unclear how this prequel will differ from the final game in terms of gameplay, but then we hardly know anything about Human Element just yet.

Beyond the game announcement, Bowling shows his commitment to Ouya financially as well, saying in a video on the Kickstarter page that he personally donated $10,000 to the project. Which we guess sorta means that Activision inadvertently donated $10,000 to the project. Which is kinda weird.
