Ouya Surprised By Reactions to Free the Games Fund

Ouya

Ouya believes people have lost the company's intention, and some indie devs decide to leave.

The Free the Games Fund, Ouya's $1 million project, encourages independent game developers to fund their games on Kickstarter with a promise of the company matching all pledges dollar-to-dollar as long as the game has six months of exclusivity on the Ouya. However, the project has felt some heat after suspicious activity on Kickstarter in which one game in the project had an average donation per person of about $934. In light of questions about the fund, Ouya has issued a statement: "This response surprised us -- we thought this was going to be great -- how could it not be?"

Ouya founder Julie Uhrman issued her statement on behalf of the company yesterday. "We want to *open* game development," Uhrman writes. "The truth is, openness is hard. Being open means everything is fair game, and it means sometimes things don't work out exactly as you hope... We're OK with that, though, because being open is worth it."

Uhrman's post angered many commenters, several of whom are independent developers. One developer, Sophie Houlden, chose today to pull her game Rose and Time from the console as a result of Uhrman's statement. In her comment to Uhrman yesterday, Houlden wrote, "I originally thought... that though the FTG fund could be exploited nobody would do that. We have clearly been proven wrong... yet you are STILL running the thing? and *this* is your response?"

Uhrman includes links to nine other games in the fund, all of which are far from their target goal.

I don't get it. What's the drama? Why are people angry?

Taaaaaaaactfullllllll.

How on Earth is she surprised that devs are upset that people are exploiting at their expense... and Ouya isn't making any steps to stop it?

Principal isn't everything (unless you're CD Projekt, I guess).

Well it's good to see this donation model is working like a charm. Not that I'm saying the whole thing is bunk, but this is pretty telling that we still have a ways to go before this becomes a valid model. The Ouya itself was a (predictable) letdown, and the one big attempt to try and get real games on the thing instead of just shovelware starts to fall apart.

People are potentially exploiting the FTG system by putting up their game on Kickstarter and donating wads of cash to themselves, which Ouya (theoretically) is going to match. Alternatively, Ouya is pumping cash into the projects to ensure exclusivity (this seems unlikely).

Ouya's response: "Oh well, at least we're keeping development transparent."

Why are people angry about that? They tried to do something to get games on the console, people abuse it and they say "well, shit happens, But you just move on" and people are........... mad at them?

Of all the shit in the world to be mad at. C'mon. Christ.

When thousands of dollars and your game's development is on the line (the whole thing could crash if allegations of fraud are pushed), it's reasonable to want a better response than [shrug]

Good lord these people are childish.

"This isn't even a response, let alone a decent one. You don't get to keep my game, you don't get to have any of the games I was looking forward to (or even started) porting to OUYA. But hey you get gridiron thunder." - Sophie Houlden

Could she sound any more like a child? "Nyah. You don't get to have MY amazing game."

These developers need to sit the fuck down and undo their panty twist. You'd think Ouya had promised to murder one of their children for every dollar they paid out. You know what, good. Take your game and fuck off. If this is seriously going to be your response to Ouya not being upset that someone tried to screw them over, you and your game can crawl in a hole.

They should rather be investigating where those odd donations came from rather than just be a) passive, b) angry.

Transparent =/= all is fair game. Quite the opposite.

Ouya surprised by reality again?

I'd say it's not news anymore but honestly I love seeing their fuck ups in the press, keep it up.

They offer a great deal. Someone abuses it. They don't get pissy and pull the plug. They say "Hey, yeah, someone might be trying to screw us over here. But you know what? That's alright. We can work this out." What a travesty.

I'm not convinced this isn't all some weird joke. Are people this insane?

You're not reading it right.

Sophie is acting like she thinks they dumped an embarrassing amount of money into Gridiron Thunder, which is unquestionably fraud. I think that's less than likely, but their response really isn't helping any suspicions.

Or, even worse, 4chan/Reddit did it.

Imagine getting your project funded, only for all the pledges to be dropped afterwards, leaving you holding the bag with no money.

What's that? Ouya is fucking up their PR again?

In other news, the sky is blue.

Who says any of that has happened? Someone tried to screw them over (possibly). They saw it. They told us they saw it.

What do these people want? Do they want Ouya to spend a month whipping themselves? A public announcement about how stupid they are? Should they write the greatest essay ever seen on the topic of fraud? I've never in my entire life seen someone get mad because a group didn't react hard enough.

I can't imagine less of a reason to be mad. Surely this woman is literally insane.

Yes. It IS insane to be upset about something you are incredibly invested in, watching the policies of a foundation you once supported crumble and fail, showing you just where your time and effort has been going. What a stupid woman for being upset, she should just 'man up' and get over herself, I mean it's not like game development is her livelihood. Psssh, who would make THAT a career, right?

If you don't understand an outcry, it's probably because you don't understand it, rather than the outcriers being off their rockers.

Here, let me outline it for you:

GOOD SCENARIO:
Insane people are actually contributing donations of thousands of dollars to these games.

RESULT: Wow. Cool.

BAD SCENARIO:
Devs are putting their games up and then donating wads of cash to themselves, taking Ouya's money without earning it.

RESULT: Sup-par and underfunded games stream from the FTG initiative, wrecking its reputation. Ouya demonstrates the survival skills of a kitten, which is totally what you want the company you're signing exclusivity with to have.

WORSE SCENARIO:
Ouya is pumping money directly into these Kickstarters. This is complete fraud.

RESULT: Ouya committed a crime to gain exclusivity.

WORST SCENARIO:
4chan, Reddit, etc. are trolling.

RESULT: Not only do Ouya lose a wad of money, but all of a sudden, the pledges are all dropped and the devs are left with nothing other than Ouya's money. And Ouya demonstrate the survival skills of a kitten again.

Being mad is completely understandable when Ouya's lack of response has terrible implications for all three bad scenarios.

Maybe they could... I dunno... investigate where the money is coming from?

The thing is, none of that is happening. Where did the insane idea come from that they were just going to throw literally every cent they had at a scam, leaving nothing for anyone ever again? "Someone tried to scam you? Clearly now my entire career is ruined and I will never be able to make a game ever because something might happen if someone possibly did something they never said they were going to do. The horror!"

I think the Ouya is a piece of shite, but is the general public actually so disappointed by the bucket of crap that they are looking for any reason at all to throw a hissy fit?

Did you read the article in the OP? Sophie is actually is remaining rather level-headed in all of this, even saying that she loves Ouya and that it was a difficult decision for her to pull her game from it.

Maiev Shadowsong:

Ouya has had some horrible PR problems, and the general idea remains: If you have horrible PR, you are going to lose people's trust. It doesn't matter what you did in order to develop that horrible PR, just that you did it. Sophie's article actually states that this is more of a ongoing problem, but that it was Ouya's ho-hum response to the allegations of fraud that ultimately ended up pushing her over the edge. She had many PR grievances against Ouya, but it was only now that she finally had enough.

Also, it is rather common for some people to dislike a weak response to something as serious as fraud. If you, basically, admit that your system allows for fraud and say, "Well, it's there, but we're still not going to stop what we're doing," then you are, through your actions, supporting the fraud, even if you say something entirely differently (an "actions speak louder than words" ordeal).

How about OUYA stop ducking and dodging and answer the real question directly: are they quietly donating to these games' kickstarter campaigns--including at the very least "Elementary, My Dear Holmes" and "Gridiron Thunder"--in a dishonest fashion which utilizes fake donor accounts?

And if so, why? And if not, then how do they explain (or what is their comment upon) the existence of these accounts, and the source of this money?

Does OUYA have information regarding the fake donor accounts, or the party behind them?

If so, does OUYA intend to share that information?

If not, does OUYA plan to launch an investigation?

If so: do they plan to do so before money changes hands?

If not: why?

And how can backers, customers, and potential customers award OUYA with any credibility whatsoever if OUYA continues to sidestep such major accusations bearing such well-documented evidence?

Oh, come on man.

Think this through logically. Ouya could literally just give them the money for exclusivity if they wanted to without having to use kickstarter. There is nothing illegal about that. The most likely scenario is that some game designer is pumping their own funds through kickstarter to get Ouya's funds for their game. That is shady and fraud, but it isn't up to Ouya to investigate. It is up to KICKSTARTER since they have all the resources for the investigation in the first place. If Kickstarter is telling them Fairplay, then Ouya has to either pony up or back out.

Ouya is trying to make the best out of a bad situation, and that is all.

Why is it that I am the one who has to point this out? I don't own a Ouya, I don't like the Ouya, and don't particularly care for much of what they do, but this isn't the huge deal people are making it out to be. Let them make a decision and report what is going on before you over react.

I really can't tell what the drama is for, if some get in via scams that doesn't exclude you from what is offered, and no they will not shut down the entire project because some entries are questionable... they didn't say people will get the money no matter what.

But the public statement is very strange none the less, as in it doesn't even make sense nor does it seem to address the situation even slightly. Which does leave the question if they were doing the scam themselves, but to what end I really can't fucking fathom.

If it were one game, that would be the logical response. But it's not. There are TWO games operating under the FTGF which have shown seriously suspicious funding activity -- and ONE of these games was canceled by its creators because they, too, thought the whole thing was obscenely fishy and didn't want anything to do with it.

If you don't think that merits deeper inquiry, I've got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.

That's sad really.

It's a bunch of people who came together to make an ideal come true.
Instead of the community helping them pick themselves back up after each fall, they instead point and laugh at them.

Then wail about how the state of the gaming industry is stagnant.

All this hate for the Ouya is sicking and disgusting.

Seriously people, why do you hate the damn thing so fucking much?
It's clear the the people behind the product have their hearts in the right place, but they are pushing in to a hard industry and they are literally babies when it comes to things like this.

While I may not own or care for an Ouya, I am rooting at the sidelines and appluading their efforts to make a mark and carve themselves a nice niche for themselves in this cinder block AAA industry.

All you guys do is sneer and laugh at their attempts yet complain about nothing fresh going on.

Now all these ridiculous conspiracy theories are coming up. What is wrong with people?

I'm really not shocked at this point. Ouya has extended their bullshitting to devs now.

I'm not pointing and sneering, I'm recognizing and analyzing.

And these "ridiculous conspiracy theories" are kind of necessary to explain why there's literally thousands upon thousands of dollars streaming in on two titles from a tiny group of "contributors". The most sane explanations are really bloody unfortunate.

Someone is definitively being childish here, and it's the ones putting their hands on their ears and saying "NO NO NO NO THERE IS NO SCAM THERE IS NO SCAM EVERYTHING IS FINE WE HAVE COOL GAMES GET SOME"

If there's one thing I've come to respect on the internet, it's humility, because on the internet almost no one has one iota of it. There's nothing that turns me off a company more than constant bragging. Ouya are literally letting something that might be a crime slide only so they don't have to admit that their fund idea might have some holes in it. They'd get a lot more respect from me if they just said "we fucked this up and we're trying to find a way to fix it without screwing anyone legitimately invested into this, but it's hard because these kinds of things are hard".

Dragonbums:

Have you read the wikipedia entry of the controversy? ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ouya ). Stuff seems really shady on the whole Free the Games Found, and I am guessing after 8.5 mill in kickstarter people want some accountability.

I don't think using a missing person's identity to commit fraud is either ridiculous conspiracy theories or should be taken lightly.

Oh, I see. I was unaware of the other dev pulling out due to strange activity. You are correct, there is something that smells of fish here.

*edit* Upon further investigation, I would say it could go either way. The one dev who backed out could just be covering their collective arses with the comments they made, but who knows. At least I know understand why there is a controversy in the first place though.

I think it's becoming clear the gaming community is a bunch of hypercrits. They say they don't like AAA industry, they want devs to have options and want those without as much disposable income to have options to play games without needing to spend $500 on a system and yet when such a system comes along theres nothing but nit picking and bitching over things that Ouya can't stop.

Sure if theres something dodgy going on then yes Kickstarter (not Ouya because they don't control KS) needs to investigate. Be pissed at the possible trouble makers not the console for trying to help devs get on their feet. They didn't HAVE to offer anything.

Wow, there are Ouya fanboys defending the console's clearly exploitable funding system. I never took the Ouya seriously due to its lackluster PR and underwhelming product architecture. Now its going to be even harder to take the damn thing seriously if people are literally going to defend the Ouya staff for not investigating fraudulent funding.

OUYA is run by idiots. Idiots who don't know how to run a gaming business, who don't know how to market their product, and who don't know how to manage their brand in the slightest. If the OUYA succeeds it will be despite the people running the show.

Dragonbums:
Now all these ridiculous conspiracy theories are coming up. What is wrong with people?

Did you actually look into the allegations? The allegations are pretty compelling, they are not accusing OUYA of doing anything wrong, they are accusing two developers of funding their own Kickstarter project to get the free money from OUYA's matching program. I would say there is some really strong evidence that something fishy is going on, at least when it comes to Gridiron Thunder. It may all be legit, but if you had the option of a free $50,000 all they way to a possible $250,000, well there will be a strong incentive from some people to fund their own Kickstarter, through friends, family, and multiple accounts, just to gain access to that free money.

Sure, you have to develop a game too, but no one said it had to be a good game. So you fund your own Kickstater, take OUYA's matching funds, put those in your pocket, use the rest to develop the game, you've just pocketed some quick cash.

Again, I am not saying this definitely happened, but there are some very real reasons people believe this may have happened and also some very real motivations for this to happen.

The Elementary Dear Holmes kickstarter is looking pretty suspicious too. Basically, many of their backers have a profile pic that is taken directly from Google Images, based on their own name.

I find it amusing that the football game developers took a really unsubtle approach, with some backers paying over $10,000 without even requesting a reward, whilst the detective game developers were a bit more subtle, with payments spread over many more backers and the wherewithal to deflect suspicion by reporting their own game when their plan starts to come out.

I'm aware of the allegations being directed at the devs themselves. However some of the comments here are basically saying the Ouya staff are behind this. Which is starting to get to high levels of idiocy.

As much as the Ouya team want games on their console. I highly doubt they are willing to shell out whatever money it takes to make the game plus an additional 50k to do it.
