I've been trying out a few games on the Pixel C and have found a lot of issues, specifically with games using full OpenGL as opposed to OpenGL ES.

So far, I found the following:

Trine 2 Doesn't even start, the developers tell me the Pixel C is not supported but they can't mark it as such on the play store for some reason.
The Talos Principle Works, but most of the effects break the rendering, so it will only run with basic visuals.

Anyone else have any to add?

All the games I have tried work fine. The only exception was Hitman Sniper. That game worked fine before they did a Christmas update, now I have graphics problems.

The games I have played and worked are: This War of Mine, Pac Man 256, Horizon Chase and Geometry Wars.

I believe all these are OpenGL ES games as they all have an IOS port. I'm specifically looking for full OpenGL games that have been written specifically for, or ported from PC and console, to Tegra K1 & X1 devices e.g Pixel C, Shield tablet & Shield AndroidTV.

Thanks for the input.

are you sure that full opengl games are supported by google on the pixel c and not only by shield devices?
Maybe it’s like on the n9. :(

I'm not sure at all as Google have not made it clear. This is what I'm trying to determine.

If Google are aiming the Pixel C at productivity users, supporting Desktop OpenGL is a good way to help developers port their software.

Seriously? GLTools contains alternative OpenGL ES driver.
->OpenGL games
->OpenGL ES driver
->emulate the shield tablet
What?

At least Half life 2 should be playable on pixel c.

Hello, I installed DIII4A (DOOM3) and QIII4A on my pixel C and they worked well. I think the apps for the shield don't work on pixel C.

Hello, I already tried that on my pixel C but it didn't work.
