    Would it be possible to port the android version of TPT over to Chrome OS, and put it on the Chrome Store? That would make it much easier to download and play. Especially for systems without a specific build.

     I don't think there is an android port at the moment.

    Actually, there is one. Here is the official thread for it and here is the actual game on google play.

    I don't know a ton about the compatibility layer Chrome uses, but my immediate thought is that it can't be ported.

     

    TPT is not written against Dalvik on android, it uses native binaries and SDL. I believe that Chrome's layer only implements Dalvik. If I am wrong here, someone please correct me.

    You are right that TPT uses native binaries for the Android port. Which means it isn't easy to make it run on a Chromebook. Also I don't even have a Chromebook to test with.

     Depending on if your Chromebook is ARM-based or Intel, you can run Ubuntu or even Windows 10 on it. Doing so would allow you to do a TON more with your Chromebook, including the current web version of TPT.
