Charles Huang, co-creator of the Guitar Hero video game franchise, Matt Crowley, the former Palm and Nokia product lead, and Karl Townsend, who worked on the first Palm Pilot, came together to launch Green Throttle Games in 2012. The gaming firm introduced an Android app that allows a user to play Android games on the big screen by pairing a game controller to the phone. However, the app did not receive much fan following, and was closed four months ago.

“Stick around and we’ll keep you posted on the evolution of Green Throttle,” the company said at the time.
