When the Ouya was announced many many moons ago, one game that was supposed to be one of the headlining titles for the Android-powered game console was Hawken, the mech-filled combat MMOFPS game that many of us would actually like to play. With the new announcement of Hawken being released onto Steam this month, it begs the question as to where the Ouya version of this game is and if we will ever actually see it.
As we have seen in the recent past whether it is from all the submissions in OUYA’s CREATE competition or just from news from developers making games, OUYA has a lot of developers interested in the Android-powered console. We now have a really big list of confirmed games heading to OUYA which includes some rather big titles like Square Enix’s Final Fantasy III, Adhesive Games’ Hawken and Double Fine’s The Cave and Reds.
During CES 2013 and nVidia’s press conference, one of the games demoed on their upcoming Project Shield Android handheld gaming system was the Mech themed MMOFPS game Hawken by Adhesive Games. Well the two companies have teamed up once again only this time it isn’t to demo Hawken playing on Project Shield like before but instead to tease us a little more by releasing a Hawken Live Wallpaper.
Back during the GTC 2012 conference where nVidia dropped the news about their upcoming cloud gaming platform GeForce Grid, there was plenty of other gaming news of the cloud variety during the nVidia keynote as well including a preview of the PC-based multiplayer FPS game Hawken running on an Asus Transformer Prime thanks to cloud gaming service Gaikai.
