Controller Diagram Template for Ouya

As I’ve been developing my Ouya game I noticed that I needed to create a controller diagram to easily show the player how to play the game.  I started scouring the web and dev forums for something, but there didn’t really seem to be much already out there that I could use. The official controller images were either at odd angles or low resolution. I found an unofficial template where the controller didn’t look enough like the real controller for my tastes.

I decided that if I wanted to be happy with my diagram, I was going to have to make my own. Attached to this post are the fruits of my labors.

The template was created from official button icons and the one official controller image I could find (extracted from an Ouya branding PDF) that was high quality and at a good angle. The template is provided as a 1080p PNG format image. I also provided the controller image and overlay as two separate PNGs in case anyone wanted to tweak my work.

  • Beautiful, thank you. I’m trying to work out what the attribution should be.

    That OK?

    • Sure, that works. Honestly, you don’t have to mention the “copyright” part because the Creative Commons license is explicitly waiving certain rights afforded by traditional copyright. Personally I think it confuses things a bit. Referencing CC-BY is enough to cover all the rights that I reserve (basically, just that usage must be attributed).

      It’s up to you, but I’d probably attribute it more like this to keep it more succinct:
