Union bringing games to 2012 LG smart TVs
This week at CES 2012 in Las Vegas, Unity games were playing on an exciting new platform: LG smart TVs.
Union is working with LG to bring games to their impressive 2012 line of smart TVs. These aren’t run-of-the-mill TVs—LG’s Magic Remote supports motion control for games, a built-in camera enables Kinect-like gesture control for select titles, and stereo 3D is supported right out of the box.
And then there’s the processing power. Madfinger’s jaw-dropping shooter Shadowgun runs at a smooth 30 frames per second at 720p. Frisbee Forever, the multi-million selling hit iOS game from Kiloo Games, (which is also available for Nokia’s N9 handset) soars on LG smart TV with motion control. Both were demoed in LG’s booth and received quite the response from CES attendees. These two great games are just the beginning: more Union games will debut on LG smart TV this spring.
As with the other platforms with which Union works—BlackBerry PlayBook, Roku, and Nokia MeeGo N9—we currently don’t have plans to support LG smart TV deployment from Unity. Instead, Unity-authored games for LG smart TV will be released through Union.
