A few months ago, Robert Bowling of Call of Duty fame left his role as Infinity Ward Creative Strategist to startup his own development company, Robotoki. In June, Bowling unveiled Robotoki's first project: zombie survival game Human Element.
Bowling is now showing his support and confidence in the success of the indie console Ouya by donating $10,000 to its Kickstarter (which now sits comfortably over $5 million) and announcing that Human Element's prequel will be an Ouya first-party exclusive. The announcement was made via a video hosted on Ouya's Kickstarter page.
Though the details are still vague, the prequel is meant to give a little background to the "event" that caused the post-apocalypse that you witness in Human Element. The prequel will be, according to Bowling, "an exclusive episodic look at the world as it develops and collapses over the course of the event happening, to give you a look at some of the survivor scenarios and elements that you can expect from the full game in 2015."
The Human Element prequel has been the first confirmed game announced for the Ouya. Previously, critics had been wary of praising Ouya for its lack of developer and software support. However, with Robotoki onboard at full steam, it seems promising that other developers will come around to Ouya and make it a success.
