Well it seems he/they stopped wanting to associate with OUYA for quite some time now.. sad really.

But seriously, why? It's like all the people who drank the OUYA kool-aid have left just because it lost its fizz.

Not a good sign for the future.
Instead of supporting the OUYA players, they... left.
Just, WOW.

So let me get this straight- they went out of their way to take Amazing Frog? off the OUYA store instead of simply keeping it on there for their original supporters? This makes NO sense to me, and I'm sorry but this really ticks me off. What about the people who did factory resets after paying $15 for it and can no longer play it? Those people are the real victims here, and Faiyu should do everything in their power to make this right for them.

Agreed! Pure nonsense for them to take Amazing Frog down, have no idea as to why.

Lost its fizz, got poured into a different container, and the original bottle is inches from smashing on the floor.

Wow. My 3 year old LOVES to watch me play that (and even tries to play it some at times.) That's a real bummer. Of course, if it's still on there for me to play, at least I can get to it. But, I do regret purchasing that game for not only this, but the fact the Ouya version was dumped (in terms of updates) awhile ago. Everyone is wondering what games will make it over to the Forge... well, they can scratch this one off the list, I guess.

You should still be able to access it from the Purchased section in PLAY

Of course they are going to stop work on the Ouya version as they said that it just can't handle the 'full' experience they wanted Amazing Frog to be. With it being on steam and they are now free to create the game with as much stuff they want (physics included), the Ouya version was kicked to the curb quite a while ago. I thought I remember reading that they would attempt to support the Ouya version if they could, so maybe something went south with the relationship between the two parties and now its just completely pulled from the discover store.

... it was fun while it lasted

It doesn't remove the game from those who own it but just removes it from the store.

And if you bought this game you could still do the same. Devs are only allowed to pull games from the store but OUYA still has a copy on their servers to restore purchases. It is a buyers protection thing.

I wouldn't think so as the game itself was taken from the store, thus removing any possible communication with Discover.. but I am not entirely sure

It wasn't completely removed from the store. You can still download it if you bought stuff in it. Likewise it has to be able to talk to the store in order to verify which DLC you've got.

This is just a guess but I could see a purchase possibly making it through but OUYA would have to refund you and cancel the purchase.

he hasn't been updating it, and he had no plans to develop for it anymore anyhow. it really was a matter of time, I think the announcement is what removed it completely. Shame really, as a very large chunk who think OUYA think Amazing Frog

Dang- was always on the fence but never jumped. My daughter kinda liked it but now I have a bunch of future step-children would giggle like mad launching/bashing frogged around.

I'll try buying it to see what happens. You never know.

Truth be told, I didn't like the game very much either. It was "something" (for lack of a better word) for 15 minutes and then was quickly uninstalled because it grew redundant.

I've spoken to the developers in the past regarding their bipolar stance towards the OUYA console and it was pretty interesting. Fayju was saying that he wasn't going to update the OUYA version anymore in favor for the Steam version. However, the flak he had gotten for publicly saying this from OUYA owners along with him being a nice guy prompted him to continue supporting the OUYA version for as long as he could. However, not two days after he said that he decided to stop supporting the console again but chose to leave it up so people can continue enjoying it. His stance was going back and forth for a long time but I guess he finally decided to pull OUYA support altogether.

Personally, I think this is an okay decision and you guys have to expect this kind of stuff to happen with digital content. The fact that they supported the OUYA for so long along with not outright pulling support should be enough for everyone. If not, then the fact that Fayju was struggling to make the tough decision to leave OUYA owners behind should tell you that he didn't like the decision himself.

It really just didn't have substance. I paid 10 dollars for it and had some good laughs. But I probably only played it twice. Multiplayer would've been fun but I'm 27 and work full time and it's just not the same asking friends over to play a goofy game like that.

I had the ootion to, which pulled up the purchase screens but Ouya would not accept my credit card for some weird reason.

I bought a couple cards from the Ouya store so we'll see what happens when they arrive.

It worked! As long as you have the demo, you can buy the game.

It's on steam for early access and last updated in July.
If it is completely ported over i'd buy it.

Does this mean that Fayju still supports the Ouya somehow? Just out of curiosity.

Doubt it. Unless they feel like the forge will be worthy enough to develop for. I'm guessing they just brought the price down since it's clearly not been updated in a while in comparison to its steam port.

They felt like it.

The whole pulling the game thing never made sense to me in the first place, for any developer who does it, not just them.

The developers are simply bipolar about their support for the OUYA console. There's no other way to put it. They're cool people and all but expect the game to be pulled again in the future.

For me the worst thing is that we won't get the newer updates the PC version has - no support anymore... unless they decide to develop further for the Forge.
