Glu Games on Google Chrome Web Store

Glu Mobile, a leading global publisher of social games, has announced the availability of Glu games on Google’s Chrome Web Store. Gun Bros, Glu’s top title with more than 13 million downloads to date, is available to the more than 160 million active users worldwide of Chrome, says the company.

It plans to bring its other titles to Chrome in 2011 including Contract Killer, Big Time Gangsta and family friendly Bug Village.

“Google Chrome offers another powerful platform for Glu to bring great social gaming experiences to global audiences,” said Glu CEO, Niccolo de Masi.

“We are delighted to be launching one of the first games that support microtransactions on the Chrome Web Store and look forward to bringing additional Glu games to this growing platform.”

The Chrome Web Store offers Chrome users a robust portfolio of browser applications. Glu games on Google Chrome will connect gamers through social features, including Facebook.

Similar to Android, in-app-purchasing is core to Glu’s monetization strategy on Chrome.

The announcement was made today, August 3.
