Appleは先日、新しい世代のApple TVと新しいOSである tvOS を発表しました。この新しいOSであなたのゲームをApple TVに展開できるようになりました。そして、わたしたちは実はすでに、Unityで作られたゲームをこの新しいプラットフォームで動かすための開発に取り組んでいて、先日のAppleのイベント発表時にも何羽かのトリさんが道を横切るのをお手伝いさせていただきました ;) 今日みなさんにそのことを発表出来て、とても嬉しく思っています。

さて、tvOSはiOSの資産を受け継ぐOSとして作られていますが、同時にさまざまな見直しが行われています:iOSに存在した数々のフレームワークが欠けており、そしていくつかの新しい必要事項が追加されています。TVは一般的にスマートフォンやタブレットと比較してコンテンツの表示方法、消費方法やインタラクションの作法が大きく異なっているので、iOSプラットフォームの延長として扱うよりは全く別のプラットフォームとして扱う方が正しいでしょう。

CrossyRoad AppleTV

現在、わたしたちはApple TV対応を磨き上げるため、限定的なユーザーグループを通じて改善作業を行っています。もしすでにApple TVの開発機をお持ちならこのグループに招待することが出来ますので、お気軽に私たちにご連絡ください。クオリティがパブリックベータに十分なものになりましたらば、公開のベータ版として提供を開始いたします。現在、このタイミングがいつになるか決まった日程はありませんが、2015年秋のあいだに提供することを予定しています。

Apple tvOS 向けのビルド機能はiOSアドオンライセンスの機能の一部として提供いたします。もしあなたがUnity Proユーザーならば、iOS Proアドオンが必要となります。tvOSのビルド機能は、Unity Personal Editionユーザーもご利用頂けます。

Apple TV向けにゲームを準備するには

新しい世代のデバイスがリリースされるまで待つ必要はありません!実は、tvOSにゲームの対応準備を始めるのは今すぐにでも可能です。iPhone6+ をお持ちなら、これをHDMIケーブルを通じてテレビに接続し、ワイヤレスのMFiコントローラーとペアリングすれば、tvOSの体験とかなり近いものを構築できます。以下にあなたのゲームをtvOS向けに準備するための簡単なチェックリストを作成しました:

  • 最新のUnity 5.xでゲームが問題なく動作するようにしましょう。Apple TV対応はリリース時の最新のUnity 5のバージョンより提供開始されます。
  • Apple TV のリモコン (Apple Remote) のみでもゲームのコントロールが可能なほうが望ましいです。とはいえ、Apple Remote がない状態では、ゲーム用コントローラーで動作するようにするのがベストでしょう。ゲーム上のすべてのUIがゲームコントローラーでも動作するようにしっかりと対応しておきましょう。スクリーンに一切タッチすることなくゲームが遊べるべきです。その上で、新しい Apple Remote の提供するジェスチャーやジャイロ、加速度を使った入力への対応を改善していくのは、それほど大変なことではないはずです。
  • Apple TVは実質的にゲームから利用可能な永続ストレージが存在しません。ゲームのセーブデータなどがある場合は、クラウドに移行させることが必須となります。
  • Apple TVはストリーミングを前提としたデバイスであり、ゲームが200MB以上ある場合はコンテンツがストリーミングされながら提供されることが期待されます。これに対応するためには、オンデマンド・リソースのサポートが必要となります。詳しくはこちらの記事をお読み下さい。
  • ほとんどのプラグインはtvOS向けに再コンパイルが必要になります。また、Apple TVではいくつかの機能については利用出来ない可能性もあります。ご利用中のプラグインをレビューして、必要に応じてプラグインの提供者にApple TV対応について問い合わせるのがよいでしょう。

そして、大きなTVスクリーンであなたの家族とゲームを一緒に遊べるというこの新しい体験について、あなたのゲームで新しいアイディアを試す勇気もお忘れなく!tvOSストアは今までとはまた違った楽しさがありますよ。お楽しみに!

    Great article. For those who live outside US like me, you can access Netflix, Hulu and similar media stations on your Apple TV by using UnoTelly or similar tools.

    Hi!
    We are BUBL, we make artsy apps for kids. Our latest app, Planes Adventures by BUBL (https://itunes.apple.com/it/app/planes-adventures-by-bubl/id1022408573?l=en&mt=8) recently got an editor’s choice. We are a part of Apple TV dev kit program and we are brining it to Apple TV. We would like to be included in Unity for tvOS beta program.

  29. I have the Apple Development Kit. Been playing around in Xcode. Please add me to the Focus Group. Apple TV and Unity is exactly why I became a Unity developer, interactive Tv!

  30. I have received my AppleTV. Have the Pro account. I would love to get on beta for AppleTV. Cheers.

  31. I have an AppleTV Dev Kit but only a personal edition account for unity 5, will I be able to gain access to Unity with tvOS compatiblity whilst in development testing or will I have to wait for a stable personal edition?

    1. Mantas Puida

      10月 8, 2015 1:21 pm

      Unfortunately beta builds can’t be activated without Pro license. This requirement will be lifted once development comes closer to the release candidate. We expect this to happen later this fall.

      1. Hi,

        I’m a pro user.

        Can I be added to the beta group please ?

        Thanks.

  44. Taylor Ringo

    9月 27, 2015 10:25 pm

    This maybe a dumb question, but would you need a OS X computer to develop for the new Apple TV? Also, are you able to make a highly detailed guide to develop for Android TV? I have an ADT-1, and I’d like to learn as much as possible.

  45. Have Apple TV Dev Kit, would like to try Unity Beta for Apple TV.

    Hi. We have received the AppleTV Dev Kit as well. Please add me to your Beta Test. Thank you.

  57. Hey Unity Team ! We’ve just received our Dev Kit and are eager to start tinkering with it. Any chance to get an invite ? (We have Unity 5 iOS Pro of course !).
    Thanks !

    1. Answered myself. Email sent !

  58. Hello I have the AppleTV Dev Kit, can I please get access to the beta test group please? I have a Unity 5 Pro license.

  59. Is there an ETA of when a beta will be available for Unity Personal users as well? I have been selected for receiving a devkit and I would like to start developing for it. I think everyone getting a devkit can be useful for helping to find bugs, and obviously we would be happy to do it. :)

    1. Mantas Puida

      9月 18, 2015 8:06 am

      This fall

      1. This fall is almost over.

  60. Great, is there a form somewhere to apply for the alpha test group? We have the dev kit coming within the next 2 days. Also we’ve got a Unity 5 pro licenses and iOS add-on. So i guess we meet the requirements :)

    1. Mantas Puida

      9月 18, 2015 8:05 am

      Please look for my e-mail in answers below.

      1. hey we’v receive our Apple TV, is there a way to be part of the beta program

        cheers richard

  61. Hi,
    I will be receiving a dev kit within the next week. I’d really like to be part of your closed group. I have Unity Pro iOS 4.x, but have not put the money into 5 yet. Can I use this with 5 Community edition?
    Thanks, I look forward to it.

    1. Mantas Puida

      9月 17, 2015 10:27 am

      Beta builds can’t be activated with Personal Edition. Unity 5 desktop Pro might work.
      These requirements will be lifted once development comes closer to release candidate.

  62. Nicholas Golden

    9月 16, 2015 7:41 pm

    I have desktop unity pro, but no iOS pro. However, I have a suggestion. Call me crazy, but wouldn’t it be better to widen the ‘alpha’ testing to TVos to people who ARENT ios pro with one condition? That condition is – prove via invoice or some method to prove you have the kit. Then open it to those people.

    There are lots of people who have the kit now, and realized they cannot test it because they have to wait. I would think this would make the testing better, more suggestions and bugs being fixed faster or at least revealed quicker. Sure you’ll open it up once it’s released but that doesn’t help the now does it?

    Feels like a missed opportunity, and I personally I’m pretty mad about it myself. I’m not saying everyone gets ‘in’ I’m talking about those who truly have the kit and are ready to test.

    Make it a requirement for feedback, and whatever. Do something!!

    -Nick

    P.S. CMON!!!!

  64. Hi Mantas,

    Dropped you an email regarding getting an early build for TVOS – any idea on how long before we’re added. We’re working on our title now so keen to make sure we can still work with Unity

    We have an iOS pro add on license too

    Many Thanks

    Dan

      9月 17, 2015 10:20 am

      Typically I respond within 24 hours. Please send your mail once again if it took longer than that.

      1. Hi Mantas,

        No problem have resent.

        Many thanks

        Dan

  65. Any plans when deploying to tvOS will be available for Non-Pro users … like me?

    1. Mantas Puida

      9月 16, 2015 11:37 am

      We will lift Pro requirement once development will come closer to public release later this fall. Though no specific date are known yet.

  66. Bit unclear what this means “Apple tvOS deployment will be available to Pro developers as a part of the iOS Pro add-on license. If you use Unity’s Personal Edition, you can also deploy to tvOS.”

    So you will be able to deploy with Unity’s free personal edition, without any add-ons ?

  67. imaginaryhuman

    9月 15, 2015 3:50 pm

    Great to hear it’s official. I think some people don’t realize how huge this platform is going to be once thousands of developers are producing new apps and games for it. It would be nice if we could get some more detailed specs about the capabilities of the hardware? A8 chip? how many cores? memory? performance?

    As to player prefs – might Unity create some kind of cloud-based prefs storage of their own to make this easy?

    1. Mantas Puida

      9月 15, 2015 4:30 pm

      We are planning to add iCloud key-value storage support.
      It’s currently not 100% clear if PlayerPrefs won’t work completely.

      1. Given that the key/value storage of iCloud is a real pain to make it work properly, good luck. Sometimes it sync, sometimes it doesn’t. On our side we gave up key/value storage and ended up doing a similar thing with cloud kit

      2. I currently have a kit that allows you to store all your game’s data on your own website. It’s currently available for free via Level11 so pro users, rejoice! :P

        I also agree with that other post, though… Publishing is a pro feature that also works without pro???? Huh? Will this need pro or not?

  68. No PlayerPrefs?

    1. Mantas Puida

      9月 18, 2015 8:05 am

      We got clarification from Apple regarding NSUserDefaults (backend we use for PlayerPrefs), it will work, but you are limited to 500 KB.

      1. Hi Mantas,
        I’m considering Apple TV for the f2p game I’m developing,as the backend is all server based anyway.
        What happen when you exceed these 500k?
        Can you save file temporarily and be sure they won’t be touched at least for as long as the app is not removed from memory?
        Wouldn’t want to hammer the server with countless requests every time.

  69. Samuel Morais

    9月 15, 2015 1:28 pm

    Congratulations. It is good to know that Unity is working in partnership with great players of all kinds of platforms.
    It is showing that is a good thing to stay with Unity.

  70. Any plans to make it work on Unity4?

    1. Mantas Puida

      9月 15, 2015 4:22 pm

      No, it will be coming only to the latest Unity 5.

  71. Good to see that Unity supports Apple TV. However I rather see development going in some serious features like, SSRR or new terrain system which is open for about 2 years now, then Apple TV which actually hardly anyone uses for gaming. Why would you start gaming on a TV while you have a console, pc, tablet or phone? Since interactive TV devices have been released, I have never ever met someone in real life gaming on his TV with something else then a gaming console, defiantly not Apple TV. Maybe it’s hot in the USA, but in EU I still need to meet someone that does so. I find it somehow a waste in development resources, unless it was already 1 button touch action to make it possible, then fine to me. For me Apple TV feature is something like adding a pink bunny on the top right corner of the interface, makes no sense at all. So far I haven’t seen any proof that Apple TV adds even a little something to the gaming / serious gaming industry. It’s just a feature of: look it’s possible, but will anyone use it? …. nah not many.

  72. great news !
    Now please make Unity capable of deploying to Apple Watch !

    1. Frank Tinsley

      9月 15, 2015 7:45 am

      Apple Watch is… Not an iOS device. It’s EXTREMLY limited in what it can do thanks to the tiny form factor having very little room for battery power. Were Apple to add a 3D graphics library to it the battery would probably die in seconds.

  73. Andrew Slater

    9月 14, 2015 10:17 pm

    Oh wow.. Ok — I’m getting a DevKit, but my current iOS game is Unity 4.6 only. Will take a bunch of work to make it 5 compatible I think. Also, I’ll need to change the saving structure entirely.

    I’d like to be a part of that group, though! Maybe all of this would be easier than I think :)

    1. Mantas Puida

      9月 14, 2015 10:47 pm

      To make any use of participation in Unity for Apple TV alpha testing group you need to own Unity 5 iOS Pro add-on license.

    9月 14, 2015 10:07 pm

    I also got my email this morning from Apple letting me know that I’d won the lotto, my AppleTV should be here later this week- I’d love to be added to the group of pre-pre-Unity testers for TVos.

    – Unity 4 Pro, iOS Pro, Android Pro.

    Should I go ahead and begin with Unity 5 or Unity 4?

  79. “Apple tvOS deployment will be available to Pro developers as a part of the iOS Pro add-on license. If you use Unity’s Personal Edition, you can also deploy to tvOS.”

    Is this just an odd way of saying all users can publish for tvOS but Personal Edition users will have the Unity splash screen like all other platforms?

    1. Mantas Puida

      9月 14, 2015 8:07 pm

      Not sure if it is odd, but yes, it will work the same way currently it works for Personal Edition on iOS.

    So far, I like everything I see about the new Apple TV – except one. It has no web browser. This is a serious flaw, and I will hold out until they bring a web browser to this incredible device.

    1. Frank Tinsley

      9月 14, 2015 6:30 pm

      Then why not cash in and make on for it?

    2. Don’t hold your breath, it’s pretty clear that Apple will never put a web browser on the new Apple TV.

      1. Frank Tinsley

        9月 15, 2015 7:41 am

        I don’t really see how it’s clear they won’t put a browser on Apple TV but again they put the App Store on it so a browser from someone is inevitable.

      2. CHeck out Kulestar’s PowerUI addon — it’s looks like it’s fast becoming a CSS+JS capable browser that’s written in C#, so might run on many of Unity’s platforms.
