Endless Shooter Neon Caves Arriving Exclusively on Ouya

By Tim Wee . August 13, 2014 . 4:01pm

Friendship Club developers Force of Habit have just announced that their new shoot-em-up, Neon Caves, will be released on Ouya this Thursday (14th August).


Ashley Gwinnell, one of the developers on the project, describes the game as an endless survival shmup, featuring the same experimental “shoot-to-move” mechanic found in their mobile game Toast Time. The graphics are done by Ted Lauterbach, known for his work on the puzzle-platformer suteF.


Neon Caves will be priced at USD $2.99 when it is available to purchase on the Ouya store.

    I love a good shmup. Funny, I actually forgot the Ouya existed.

      They don’t seem to be doing much PR through the usual mainstream press channels anymore, which I guess is expected given how much irrational vehement hate the system gets but is also a shame because it’s just starting to look like the concept is picking up steam. Now that the dust has settled on Android video game hardware it’s looking more and more like the Ouya probably emerged the better of its peers after all.

      I honestly am kind of tempted to buy one. That is, if I didn’t have a million and a half other gaming-related crap to spend a hundred dollars on. Sorry Ouya.

      That’s pretty much what I was about to say lol.

      You hit the nail on the head lol

      I thought the Ouya was dead; I’m surprised someone’s making new games for it.

    I actually really like the Ouya as a concept and as a console…it just needed a lot more work. The game I’m really looking forward to is Colossal Kaiju Combat. I’m not sure if the Ouya version of that is even still happening or not, but I’m excited for it. The day that gets an Ouya release is the day I will pick up the console.

    On topic though, this actually looks pretty fun. It’s a mix of a lot of my favorite things.

    Looks good, getting it now :) surprised to hear people say things like, “thought OUYA was dead”
    On the contrary it is doing quite well, they’ve announced 2 or 3 partnerships in the last month with the “OUYA Everywhere” initiative, there are a plethora of extremely good games, several are OUYA exclusive, which there is no shortage of. It’s an Indie devs wet dream to develop for when first starting out. Anyone can self-publish a game with their open structure. It’s actually a good first stepping stone and test market to boot.
    If you can’t see the value in the console then honestly how can you consider yourself a gamer and not just a fanboy? I own every system possible. Why hate on something unless its because you don’t understand it? Doesn’t make sense.
    Having choices is really nice. Imagine only M$ and Sony? No competition… That would suuuuck. Whatever, smh

  • Love my OUYA, use it every day. Mostly for media though, does that count? As a nice break (from video) I’ll play a few games, it gets more action than my Xbox does. Sideload (read direct load) my Humble Bundle games. Does everything I need it to, controller is a bit wonky right now, maybe low batteries. Meh, my two bitcoins.
