YoYo Games today debuts on the Google Chrome Web Store with seven of its hit video games. Already popular games “Karoshi,” “Pollushot,” “Reflexions,” “Simply Minesweeper,” “Simply Solitaire,” “Simply Word Search,” and “Skydiver Mach II” make their way to the popular Web browser to take advantage of its large and growing audience. All of YoYo Games’ titles are ad-supported and free to play on Chrome and are available now at https://chrome.google.com/webstore.

YoYo Games’ video game titles for Chrome have been developed with GameMaker: Studio, YoYo Games’ lightning fast, powerful and easy to use cross-platform games development tool. With GameMaker: Studio’s HTML5 export option, previously released Android games could be easily published to Chrome in record time with no additional porting or development resources required.

YoYo Games was selected by Google to provide GameMaker: Studio demos at the 2012 Google I|O at Moscone Center in San Francisco Thursday, June 28.

“The popularity of the Google Chrome Browser makes it a very appealing avenue for YoYo Games as we look to expand the reach and visibility for our diverse portfolio of high quality titles,” said Stuart Poole, head of publishing at YoYo Games. “Thanks to GameMaker: Studio, this is just the beginning for us -- we have many more games in the pipeline that can be published in HTML5.”
