My game Positron will be available on OUYA at launch. I have been working on the Android port for a little while now and have it almost feature complete and expect the port to OUYA from there to be pretty straightforward :)

Update: 2013-05-11 - New vid showing alternate camera modes

Here's a vid of Positron's Maze mode in action:

More details and screenshots can be found on the Steam Greenlight page for Positron:

The game is being developed for Xbox Live Indie Games, Windows Phone 7, PC, Mac, Linux, iPad, iPhone, Android, PlayBook, and Facebook (Flash 11). It will also be released on Windows Phone 8, Surface, Surface RT, BlackBerry 10, OUYA and I'm planning on supporting the Oculus Rift too.

Looking forward to getting this out on OUYA, and for those of you wanting to experience Positron on TV the Xbox version will be out in the next two weeks and the mobile/tablet versions play on TV with HDMI adapters.

Wow, nice. I can't wait to see this on OUYA. Any idea what the pricing will be on this?

Thanks guys :). As for pricing, I can't speculate on what the pricing will be specifically for OUYA at this point but on other platforms the prices will generally be between 1-3 ($2-5).

I must say, I am really looking forward to this game. Do you plan on having any features exclusive to OUYA? What will be your Free-to-Play model on the OUYA version?

I've not really decided yet. It could follow the Xbox Model (trial with limited number of levels) or could be free with IAP for powerups. My plan with the iOS release is to release as a paid game first and perhaps drop it to free + IAP later.

This game looks incredibly fun! On Friday, watch our week in review (courtesy of the guys at OuyaForum.com), we'll discuss the game in detail and see our thoughts:) We'll also buy the game and review it for you:) Good luck with future titles!!!!

This game looks sick. I can't wait to give it a try. Is the turning based on one tap of the dpad or is it fluid turning as in you can move all over the board?

Hey all. Been a while since I first posted this, been busy porting the game to a whole load of platforms (http://retroburngames.com) and plan to submit for OUYA very soon in time for the retail launch. I'm also looking to demo the game and the OUYA at some local GAME stores in the coming month too which should be fun :)

Here's a new vid I just prepared showing a few alternate camera modes from the game:

Since I joined the forums a little later, this game went right over my head. I'm insanely glad that you decided to update your thread because I find this game to be an amazing piece of art. Can't wait to play it.

This looks like a ton of fun. All I could hear in my head while watching the video was "Run these guys into your lightwalls!", haha!

Hi! I'm late to the party, but excited to play this. By any chance, are there any plans for online multiplayer? (or any multiplayer?)

I want to have neck to neck races while blasting the various Fast and Furious soundtracks with my bros.

It's been a while but looks like this game will be released soon!


Positron: Hi Daniel, yes it's still coming to OUYA (and other Android platforms like GameStick, Google Play, Kindle etc..). Out of all the various platforms my Android, PC, and XBox branches are currently the most stable so I expect to have it released on OUYA and Android in general in the next 3-4 weeks.

Can't wait to see this released :)
