Currently Ouya and Telltale are looking to launch both the first full season of The Walking Dead, as well as its recently released DLC 400 Days Simultaneously. Plans are also on the table to bring The Walking Dead: Season 2 to the Ouya when it is released later this fall.
This is a pretty major title to come to the micro-console, and there is no doubt that a lot is riding on the hope of Telltale bringing their success over to the Ouya. Just like the major console versions, the first episode “A New Day” will be available for free download with its corresponding episodes coming at a small cost.
The Ouya is a Kickstarter funded; Android based micro-console that was released back in June. This pocket sized gaming machine solely relies on digital downloaded content, (much like smart phones) and allows its users to download a variety of games and apps through its exclusive store.

The Ouya comes at a price of $99.99 and is purchasable at many major retailers and through the official Ouya site here
I absolutely loved The Walking Dead game, even if it is emotionally taxing and mentally draining. But once you get beyond that, it is a masterpiece of a “Point and Click” style adventure game. I am very excited for the next season, though i would suggest to Telltale to include special content for Season 2 pre-orders… like a prescription for anxiety medication.
