OUYA Game

Ouya.jpgThe other night was thinking to myself, I should try and make a game for the OUYA.  Thought it would be a fun project to work on in my spare time.  Started to look into the process.  Could not find any step by step how-to’s.  Did a bunch of searching and reading and came up with a plan.  Found a get help post showing how to set up all the development kit stuff > here.   Did all these steps.  It seemed to work but still have know idea what does or how you use it.  Next was time to find a game engine.  There is a bunch, you can see that list > here.  After looking at them all.  Decided on Game Maker.  Because it looked the one of the easier ones to use with lots of help online.  They have a free version to try.

Got that all download and installed.  Watched a tutorial and made a simple box move in each direction with pressing the arrows keys.  Then I wanted to see if I could get that onto the OUYA and use its controller.  Well that is were I ran into trouble.  Could not figure out how to do that.  Looked into get code to map the buttons.  But that was very confusing.  Ended up getting very frustrated.  So I gave up.  It shouldn’t be that hard to do.  Just wish there was a step by step process.
