Supergiant Games' indie hit Bastion has been released via the Google Chrome Web Store, allowing users to play the game in their Chrome web browser -- and there are more big titles on the way for the platform too, says Google. During a recent event at the GooglePlex headquarters attended by dozens of game companies, and as reported by Venturebeat, Google said that its Chrome native client is ready to be rolled out, making it easy for developers to port their existing PC and console games for use in the Chrome web browser. For example, Unity 3D developers can simply click a checkbox during development to make a Unity-based game work within the Chrome browser, Google explained. Today, Supergiant Games has launched Bastion via the Chrome Web Store, and Square Enix chief executive Yoichi Wada said that his company's Mini Ninjas is also on the way to the platform. "Google's native client will be welcomed worldwide as a truly innovative technology for the information technology industry and game industry as well," said Wada. He noted that, thanks to the native client, a larger audience will now be able to experience high-end games. "It is an excellent solution for browser gaming," he concluded.
