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.

Just received my AppleTV dev kit today and am interested in bringing one of my iOS games to AppleTV – would love to join the relative Unity beta.

Just received an apple tv dev kit; wouldn’t mind doing some unity 3d testing on it :D

I would like to be a part of the apple tv beta test. Apple release more dev kits and I got one.

We got an Apple TV devkit as well. Can you add us to the beta group..
We have Unity5 pro license with iOS Pro. Thank you!

Hi,

I have also just received Apple TV dev kit, can you please add me too to the beta?

Thanking you in advance,
Olivier

Have ATV development kit and am hoping that Unity3d will provide the necessary integration for this new platform…please add me to the Beta team!

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!

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

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?

My AppleTV DevKit is in the post (part to the due to overwhelming demand batch!).
Please could you add me to the test group.
Thanks!

We received an Apple TV dev kit and would also like to join the Unity 3D with Apple TV support Beta.

I am part of the Apple TV Dev Program, would love to be part of the focus group. Thanks!

Hello! I have an Apple TV dev kit and would like to be added to the Unity beta w/ Apple TV support.

Thanks,
Nick

We have our Apple TV Dev Kit and would like to try the Unity Beta for Apple TV. Thanks!

We just picked up a dev kit, we’d love to be added to the tvOS Unity lib to start building ;)

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.

Awesome news! Dropped an email, I really hope we can be part of this as it seems really exciting xD

We’ve emailed a couple of Unity contacts but would love to be on the list and get access to this ASAP. We have the kit and ready to start testing

I have a AppleTV Dev Kit and and interested in using Unity with it. Could you add me to the list.

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

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 !

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.

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. :)

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 :)

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.

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!!!!

We are receiving a Dev unit as well. I would love to be part of the test group.
Thanks!

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

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 ?

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?

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.

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.

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.

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 :)

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.

Just received the confirmation email and would love to help out.

My licenses are:
– Unity 5 Pro but no iOS pro.
– Unity 4 Pro, iOS Pro, Android Pro.

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

Great news all around

Thanks guys!

Our company just got the email from Apple that our AppleTV Dev Kit is on its way. How do we get into the group so we can start porting our games to it?

Hi Warren,

We have no immediate plans, but we are definitely watching this.

Cheers,
Heikki

Our company is receiving a Dev Kit. How do we get more information about the group and or beta you mentioned?

“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?

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.

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

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.

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.

They could easily put a browser on it, I mean, an iPhone has one on a tiny screen. A tv screen is far bigger and easier to read. Plus it has an internet connection. Not exactly a huge leap to add a browser, although I’m not sure if that would redefine what apple tv is all about?
