Developers can now offer their games to more than one billion PC and Mac players without lifting a finger.

Big Fish – who have answered for a number of our App of the Days - has announced that it has added the ability for developers to make their free-to-play or premium Android games available to a wider audience without the need for extra developer work.

Powered by BlueStacks’ technology, which makes the cross platform capabilities possible, developers can push their games out on PC and Mac by simply implementing Big Fish’s e-Commerce APIs.

The wider audiences will offer opportunities to the games to make more money and gain more attention from new audiences as well as gaining brand exposure.

Paul Thelen, founder and CEO of Big Fish, said: “This is a win for both our customers and game developers. Android developers can, for the first time, access a huge player base through Big Fish’s global PC and Mac app store.”

The company has so far distributed more than two billion casual games to PC and mobile since 2002, and with the merging of the two markets, has made it possible to increase this number drastically.

Rosen Sharma, BlueStacks CEO, added: “There is no one bigger in the casual gaming space than Big Fish and there are many developers that we have worked with in the past interested in this new market opportunity.”
