As explained in the blog post, the selection represents “something for everyone here: a library of superb, critically-acclaimed titles spanning multiple genres and age ratings.” As we can see, the lineup consists of blockbusters, as well indie games such as Gylt, Kine, Samurai Shodown and Thumper.

The tech giant also plans to add another 14 titles by the end of the year.

No first-party games have been announced just yet. And it will probably take a while before Google rolls out any titles developed internally: the search giant has only opened its first games studo this October. It is based in Montréal, Canada.

“For a big bet and a huge new IP that’s going to fully leverage the cloud, it may be several years. But we do have quite a few exclusive games in the works that will demonstrate some of the exciting things about the platform all along the path. It won’t be four years before gamers get to see the new exclusive, exciting content. There will be some coming out every year, and more and more each year.”

In the nearest future, Google will probably rely on indie developers for exclusive content.
