A rather popular crane simulation game called The Little Crane That Could is heading for OUYA. The developer, Abraham Stolk, has announce that he will be making an official version of the game for the upcoming Android-based game console OUYA and it should be available right when OUYA launches publicly in March 2013.
For those of you unfamiliar with this game, The Little Crane That Could is a realistic crane operating simulation game and by realistic we are referring to the physics and controls. The visuals on the other hand are rather smooth looking cel-shaded 3D visuals. You will actually be able to control a variety of heavy construction machinery aside from a crane, all of which you can use to do things like repair bridges, load cargo trains, reconstruct ancient temples, move houses and so on.
The Little Crane That Could Features:
- Top notch physics. - free roaming sandbox level. - Gorgeous high resolution visuals. - Drive mobile cranes, dump trucks, skid loaders and fork lifts. - Fly a Sky Crane.
The game is rendered at a native 1920x1080 resolution, with custom vertex/fragment shaders with the shaders also supporting dynamic shadows. This game will be available as a free download on OUYA which will give players access to six free levels. There are an additional 18 levels that are available for unlocking for a one-time in-game purchase.
You can check out the game in action in the video above which is gameplay taken from the Mac OS version of the game. The gameplay, however, is pretty much identical on the OUYA as are the visuals. If you want to try out the game right now, The Little Crane That Could is also available on Google Play.
