IMAGINE. CREATE. PLAY.

EnGeniux is proud to introduce our new next generation game console - OTON X. OTON X will be the first smart autonomous game console. What does this mean? OTON X will be able to self-create games instantly within minutes without human input. No drag or drop requirements. Do you want to play a new 2D or 3D action game instantly? OTON X has you covered! How about a new racing game? Or a new 3D alien shooter game? No problem, OTON X can do it!  The best thing about OTON X is that all OTON X games are 100% free. Imagine a world where every single day you could play a new exclusive EnGeniux OTON X game free of charge. 

EXPLORE OPEN SOURCE FROM A NEW VERTICAL

Mod the OTON X games you play from our network or resell games with your own custom user content levels, characters and power-ups. Developing games for OTON X does not require any special programming skills. Create new worlds, new challenges and new characters then share the entire experience with your friends on OTON X. Need more games? Don’t worry. The OTON X console will support Linux, Android and 3rd party games. The EnGeniux team will also produce new first party games with OTON X game update modules.

OTON X BETA

This is a first for a crowdfunding project. When you back the OTON X project you become eligible to become an OTON X beta tester to test the user interface, game creation and new updates. With this incentive backers are helping with feedback and providing suggestions as we develop the final hardware and software builds. We feel that while you wait on us to complete the project you should have the ability to login to our beta server and provide vital input to make this project a success.

WHERE YOU COME IN

We have sourced a leading contract manufacturer to develop, assemble and package the units to our exact specifications. However, we need your help to go from a working prototype to a full scale production and to get volume discounts so we can offer OTON X units for the lowest retail pricing possible. Your pledge will go towards hardware production and other related testing requirements. What really makes OTON X special is our custom operating system which goes hand-in-hand with the specialized PCB quad-core chipset. Our ten years of experience in game development and manufacturing will help us successfully deliver this amazing platform to our backers. 


*Donate today! The OTON console will retail for $179, $379 and $479 in 2014. Plus, all supporters get an upgraded package which includes more cloud storage, physics and game enhancements for the life of their console!!!

**Unfortunately we have to ask all our international supporters to add $30 for shipping outside the U.S. for all systems and all supporters must add $30 for extra game controllers if not listed with package.)

Risks and Challenges

The biggest challenge with OTON X was producing its next generation software and a functional prototype. We have a proven concept, that went through three years of iterations and we are currently finalizing the board design. The final product may slightly differ in size (may be bigger) and performance (may be faster). 

The boards are pre-examined and verified with hardware specialist at a New Jersey based manufacturing company, where we decided to produce the boards. Our funding goals cover a minimal batch of systems, programming, FCC/UL testing and packaging.

We plan to finish the production of the basic OTON X in July 2014; we left enough time until the release to solve any unexpected problems.Our current team has over 10 years of manufacturing and developing history. If needed, our talented team with a diverse set of skills will do a great job in problem solving. Our goal is to have units ready in 2014 for backers.
