Corona Geek #51 – Ouya Support, Nexus 7 Tips, and 16bitLabs

Corona GeekDuring this week’s Corona Geek, we shared that Corona Simulator now has Ouya and GameStick ‘View As’ options, which means developers can start exploring Ouya using Corona SDK. The plugin to allow IAP and Ouya Store publishing is in the works. Once it’s ready, it will be possilbe to publish apps to the Ouya Store. The other great news mentioned is that Corona SDK now supports all HID controllers, which means you can now target GameStick game controller, MOGA Pro, PS 3 controller, NVIDIA Shield, along with Bluetooth keyboards and mice (all HID devices). We also shared some Nexus 7 app side-loading tips and talked with 16bitLabs game developer, Andrea Zanetti from Italy, about his adventures as a 16 year old app developer.

Here are links to resources mentioned during today’s show:

Be sure to check out Roaming Gamer’s Corona SDK game template library. All templates are on sale now and the code is fully documented and easy to understand. Show regular, Ed Maurina is the master mind behind the code and he’s very good at creating code that is easy to follow.

    Congratulations to Andrea Zanetti’s Ice Hero. I enjoyed his interview and was impressed not only with his independent application design and works but also with his command of the English language at such young age. His calm demeanor and humility is beyond his age. Not playing down the first part of the program on OUYA and other topics, just would like to add that Andrea’s interview begins at around 32:00 mark of this current video.

    I absolutely agree. Andrea Zanetti is an inspiration. The fact that he taught himself to program, draw cartoons, and game design is amazing. I love that he started learning to program at 10 because he wanted to build a website devoted to a game console. It’s those moments when a hobby turns into a life long skill.
