Whether the OUYA Android-based console lives up to its immense hype after raising millions on Kickstarter is yet to be seen, but it seems that some developers are already interested in developing for it. Robotiki, founded by Infinity Ward and Call of Duty alumnus Robert Bowling, is planning to release an OUYA-exclusive prequel to their upcoming multi-platform game "Human Element."
That highly-anticipated survival horror game isn't planned for release until 2015 (!), but assuming the OUYA makes it into a few homes, gamers should be able to get a taste of it ahead of that incredibly distant release date.
it's unclear what type of game this prequel will be and whether it will share the cross-platform play elements that are said to be a part of "Human Element" — for instance, if you run low on health on your PC, you can head to the store with your phone and "buy" some medical supplies. The prequel may have some of these characteristics, but as it is to be an OUYA exclusive, it seems likely the game will be more traditional.
Whatever the case, it'll be some time before it hits anybody's screens; OUYA devices are planned to ship in 2013 at the earliest, so there's plenty more time for information to leak out.
