It seems that the pieces for Google’s rumored set-top box are beginning to fall into place. According to a report from Pando Daily, the search giant has purchased Santa Clara-based game developer Green Throttle Games for an undisclosed sum.

An acquisition was speculated last November when Green Throttle Games unexpectedly pulled its game store app, Android Arena, from the Play Store, but Google didn’t confirm until today that it had acquired the company’s talent and assets.

Launched in 2012 by two Palm employees and gaming industry veteran Charles Huang of Guitar Hero fame, Green Throttle Games’ focus was primarily on peripherals. The company sold a custom controller, the Atlas, which connected to an Android game store app via Bluetooth. One of the technology’s differentiating features was the ability to connect up to four controllers to one device; Android’s Bluetooth implementation normally only allows one device of each type to connect.

If Google intends to launch a set-top box, it has its work cut out for it. Amazon, which is allegedly preparing to release a console of its own, purchased software developer Double Helix in February. Apple is also rumored to release a refreshed Apple TV with Time Warner Cable integration as soon as this April.

Could a Nexus TV be in our future? We’ll probably have to wait until Google I/O on June 25 to find out.

We’ve seen the power of Android and gaming come together with the Kickstarter craze OUYA, but a new company Green Throttle Games asks, “why buy a separate Android console when your phone can do it all?” With the help of some Bluetooth connected controllers, your phone and your big screen TV is all you need to have mobile gaming fun right on your couch. 

Green Throttle is developing their own first-party titles to be released with the new service, which they want to get third-party developers in on as well. They are releasing an SDK as part of a program to get as many games into their catalog as possible. If this all sounds exciting to you, patience might help a bit. “In the near future” is all we have as far as release date and no word on price either.
