Bowling’s ‘Human Element’ Prequel to be Ouya’s First Exclusive
By now most everyone has heard of the Android powered console known as OUYA but there wasn’t a whole lot of concrete information in regards to its exclusive titles. The slurry of rock and water that had been swirling around the intranets has finally hardened and it looks as if Robotoki (headed by former Infinity Ward and Call of Duty PR man, Robert Bowling) will be the first developer to throw an exclusive OUYA’s way.
A prequel to Robert Bowling’s Human Element (to be released in 2015) will arrive on the Kickstarted system (that sounds a bit like Oreo) and will feature episodic content that will take place “a week, a month, a year; after the ‘event.”. So Human Element is set 35 years AFTER the zombie apocalypse, but its prequel will be set during the zombie apocalypse which to me sounds like a more exciting premise since things that happen after cool things aren’t really as cool, sort of in the way that a party is cool but the after party clean isn’t quite so cool. That being said, its a unique-ish concept so we’ll just wait to see what happens.
I haven’t really jumped on to the razzle dazzle hype train of the OUYA because it seems like a console for hipsters. My only rationale for that is most hipsters have Apple products but their quest for wearing, eating, drinking and playing ironic things would make an Android console the golden fleece of the hipster world.
