Muffi Ghadiali, one of the founding members of Santa Monica video game console maker Ouya Inc. has left the company, according to website TechCrunch.

Ghadiali, who reportedly left the company on his own accord, was instrumental in launching Ouya’s successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Ghadiali also led teams involved in designing and engineering the console, which has posted underwhelming sales.

A statement from the company said Ouya is now focusing “more on the next phase of the business and product development. We’ve made some recent changes including the departure of Muffi Ghadiali who was invaluable during the launch of Ouya.”
