We ported Quake III to Chromecast in less than a day using the Google Cast Remote Display API.

Check out this post by +Leon Nicholls and +Antonio Fontan to find out how we're able to run Quake on Chromecast without modifying a single line of the game engine.

Time to start building games on Cast!
Game Manager APIs Sample Games

The Google Cast Game Manager APIs are a set of APIs in the Google Cast SDK that allow developers to quickly write Cast enabled games. The Google Cast Game Manager allows native Android, iOS and Chrome games to connect with a Google Cast device and have communication and synchronization of player and game states across devices.

Today we are open sourcing 3 sample games that use the Google Cast Game Manager APIs at https://github.com/googlecast/GameManagerSamples

• SpellCast (Android, iOS): Team up with up to 3 friends and draw arcane symbols on your phone to cast spells and defeat monsters!
• StarCast (Android, iOS, Chrome): A simple shoot-em-up. A great example of how to write a multiplayer game. 
• SpriteDemo (Android, iOS, Chrome): A hello world application. The simplest example of how to use the Game Manager APIs.

We are also open sourcing a Game Debugger that you can use to see the game state, view the messages being passed around and connect new players.

You can learn more about the Game Manager APIs: https://developers.google.com/cast/docs/gaming

Happy Casting!
