While OUYA has many enthusiastic backers, there are still many doubts surrounding the upcoming Android-bsaed console. Skeptics want to know precisely one thing: what games will be available on the platform?

Today, OUYA has announced its first exclusive. Robert Bowling, president of indie dev Robotoki, has promised to create a prequel to his team's zombie apocalypse game, Human Element, exclusively for the console.

"When I first saw OUYA, I was super-excited. So excited, I was one of the first people to donate personally," Bowling said on the console's Kickstarter page. He even contributed $10,000 to the cause (meaning all launch consoles will have his username engraved on it). This OUYA-exclusive Human Element project will be an episodic adventure. Presumably, it will be out sooner than Human Element's projected 2015 release date.

        can donating money on kickstarter really be called investing?

          yes, an investment doesn't become not an investment if there ends up being no return on it

          Yes. That's how a lot of people look at a Kickstarter pledge; the return doesn't have to be financial.
