Big Fish’s e-commerce API with the support of Bluestacks would now be utilized by Android developers who are involved in creating games. This will enable Android games to be compatible on PC and Macs which would be available in Fish PC and Mac app store.

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

“This deal is a huge win for mobile developers who want to offer their games to PC or Mac players without having to do any work,” said Rosen Sharma, Bluestacks CEO in a statement.

Android App player which was released by Big Fish in June 2012 allows Apple users free access to apps in the Google Play store and installing them on their Mac laptop or desktop PC.

Last month Bluestacks also launched GamePop console with a subscription service that allows the users to play Android games on TV. The console priced at $100 with a monthly subscription of  $6.99 provides users with $250 value in games with new games being added every time.
