Oxygene on the Big Screen

Android powered Ouya ConsoleYou already know Oxygene is the best choice for mobile development – Oxygene for Java on Android, Oxygene for .NET for Windows Phone and the Windows RT Surface and the beta “Nougat” already providing great support for iOS development. But what if you want to develop on the big screen? Like that 50 plus inch TV in your front room?

Enter the Ouya, the Android powered game console for your TV. They just released their ODK (Ouya Development Kit), and since it is Android powered, it is perfectly supported by Oxygene for Java right out of the box. Oxygene for Java is a completely native Android development tool – there are no forced abstraction layers or additional run-times to get in your way or require updating when new variations or versions of the platform come out.

Red Ant Games has just announced they are using Oxygene for Java to move their Subject 33 to Ouya and Android mobile devices. Subject 33 is currently an Alpha prototype on Windows. They also have plans to support iOS and Mac with “Nougat”.
