For Release at 8 a.m. PDT, June 28, 2016:
IRVINE, Calif. – OUYA Publishing announced today the expanded release of “ChargeShot.” Originally launched for PC on Steam by indie developer Cowboy Color, the futuristic fantasy arena battle game is the second multi-platform title in as many months distributed and marketed by OUYA Publishing, a wholly owned division of Razer, Inc.
Gamers can now enjoy the Android version of “ChargeShot” via Razer Forge TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV and NVIDIA Shield with a weeklong launch sale for $7.99 Four new playable characters were added to the updated game, including a rendition of Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan, along with a new capture-the-flag “Gem Master” mode.
“It seems that every time one of my staff do a deal with an indie game, I wind-up as some kind of weird character in-game, probably so they can give me a humiliating beating virtually,” says Tan. “Fortunately, they choose great games when they do this to me, and ‘ChargeShot’ is no exception.

OUYA Publishing was born out of last year’s acquisition of OUYA assets and related IP by Razer, a global leader in connected devices and software for gamers. Razer repositioned OUYA – the most successful crowd-funded business of its day and pioneer of the first console for Android-based games – as a development and distribution arm supporting Android-based game makers and platforms. Key members of the original OUYA team were on boarded to oversee the business and foster productive relationships within the Android community. OUYA Publishing previously served as a publishing promotional partner and helped in funding Numinous Games’ “That Dragon, Cancer,” which released on January 12, 2016, for Razer Forge TV and Steam. Razer last month released “Mimic Arena” by Tiny Horse Games, its first multi-platform publishing deal under the then-nascent OUYA Publishing umbrella.
The ongoing mission of OUYA Publishing leaves it focused on improving all aspects of the Android entertainment space, advocating platform inclusivity and broad-based publishing with all available Android TV partners who value curated, unique, quality content. In the spirit of this ongoing commitment, OUYA Publishing announced plans to expand resources for partner-funding programs, the details of which it plans to announce sometime in the next several weeks.
