Opposites available on Ouya!

Opposites is available up on the Ouya storefront!  Go download it and try it out, if you like the full version is only three bucks.  This is a really good version, the controls are really tight and the scoring and game play has been cleaned up a lot.  Thanks yall!

I’m an old school XNA programmer, so I did it in MonoGame, which is an open source version of XNA.  It was pretty painless, but there were a few quirks to watch out for.  I’ve got a bunch of MonoGame wrappers up on my GitHub account: github.com/dmanning23

The whole Ouya community has been great too.  I even talked to some of the Ouya folks, who helped me out with a problem.  Coming from Xbox Live Indie Games and Microsoft’s super “hands off” approach to that whole scene, actually talking to someone from Ouya was really awesome.  The players & other devs have been really great too, so far it’s been a really positive experience.  The numbers aren’t great, but a lot of that is my fault.  I did like a “stealth launch” and just threw Opposites up there without sending out press releases or anything, so it’s been in the tail end of the Sandbox not really getting a lot of downloads.  That’ll probably pick up once it gets out in the real storefront though.  People that have downloaded it though, conversation rate has been right around 5% too, I couldn’t be happier.  For a three dollar downloadable title, that’s amazingly high.

Anyway, I’m just glad that it’s out there, and people are having fun with it.  If you haven’t tried it yet, you totally should.  Cheers!
