I'm focusing on a game for the Android platform, and thinking of building multiple versions with different themes. Every one of them would have a distinct name, graphics, and content, but the same game engine.

I would be maintaining the same code base for these 20 apps. If I capitalize on this format with different themes, is that forbidden in Google play?

It is not forbidden by Google play. I have published several games using the same game engine. They don't have a problem with it. In fact, the game engine is one I modified from a book and I know that many people have published games using the same engine.

Look at lgdx -- many people are publishing using basically the same underlying code.

Alternatively, look at 'Choices' -- they acknowledge the 'sameness' of the engine with different content.
