Razer’s Forge TV  is getting a new influx of life thanks to a fresh batch of games. Razer announced the debut of its new Cortex platform on Monday, which brings several new titles designed for Android TV. These games were originally distributed through the OUYA platform, which Razer recently acquired.

This selection is primarily from independent developers, though there are some better-known characters like Sonic the Hedgehog and recent successes like BombSquad and TowerFall: Ascension. Razer says the catalogue will get more titles regularly, and you’ll still be able to download games through the Google Play Store.

While the Google Play Store no longer sells the Android TV box, you can get the Forge TV directly from Razer

Why this matters: The future of Android TV gaming is still rather murky. Nvidia’s Shield TV and the Nexus Player are the main alternatives, but those are surpassed in droves by traditional consoles like the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This year also saw a lot of momentum for Google’s other TV platform, thanks to a new model of the Chromecast.
