OUYA Kickstarter Suspended

For those of you that do not know, OUYA is a mobile gaming console that allows players to take those entertaining mobile games and bring their skill to the console. OUYA itself was a bit of a Kickstarter and now there are titles for the console that are being suspended due to certain suspicions from the developers. A Sherlock Holmes based title called Elementary, My Dear Holmes hit milestones before the developer could even react to the amount of money coming in but now the funding has been suspended because there are apparently some weird accounts out there that are supporting this game.

OUYA told Joystiq that “The decision to suspend the Kickstarter campaign for Elementary, My Dear Holmes was made by Kickstarter. And at this time, you have the same information that we do…” So it’s not that OUYA is hiding anything but the fact that Kickstarter shut down funding for what looks like one of the most successful titles for the console amazes me but what’s even funnier, is this is a point and click adventure game. It’s all Kickstarter who suspended the process but OUYA states “We are confident in Kickstarter’s process for verifying the integrity of campaigns on their site. We launched this fund to find the next great game developer as determined by gamers. It’s unfortunate that this has happened, but we know the next great game is out there.”

So OUYA is not only proving all of those next generation fan boys wrong with the success of the console, but the fact that people are willing to hack or try anything shady just to improve the titles for the console really says a lot. I mean, there was never ever suspension or modding for any of the Call of Duty titles so it makes you scratch your head a bit.
