History

Since the first day OUYA launched its Kickstarter, Chuck has been excited about this console. Ever since he was 12 with his Super Nintendo at home, he's always dreamed of developing a console game for the TV, and finally it was possible. Having developed a little indie game Word Race for iOS, he learned about the whole process from start to finish of developing a game with just a developer and a graphic designer. He got his OUYA console and looked at the genres that most excited him: board and card games. He was shocked to only see a couple games, so he saw a market gap in the Card/Casino category and pushed to make the best game in that genre. After reaching the #1 place in OUYA card games, he decided to continue to port this game to iOS and is now continuing to bring this to Fire TV, Android and Windows Phone.
