There’s also one commercial game: Storm in a TeaCup, an adventure game developed by Cobra Mobile.The Raspberry Pi Store can be installed in Raspbian using the following commands:sudo apt-get updatesudo apt-get install pistoreAnd then launch it from the menu: Programming > Pi Store or the newly created desktop shortcut.New Raspbian images which include the new Pi Store are also available for download on the Raspberry Pi downloads page.You can also view the store online, at http://store.raspberrypi.com/.via/more info: Raspberry Pi blog
