Cornfox Reveals 2020 Roadmap For Oceanhorn 2 – Big Content Update

Oceanhorn-2-Key-Art-1.jpg

Just prior to the launch of Oceanhorn 2 in September, ATVG posted this story┬árevealing the final trailer before the studio hit the big go button. That story is the best way to catch up on this site’s coverage of the sequel, from its initial announcement right through to launch, as I’ve packed all the necessary links into it.

Now that launch has come and gone, and some of you may have even finished it by now (with 101 Apple Arcade games to play, I’ve yet to take much of a bite out of it), it’s time to look to the future.

Today Cornfox did just that, revealing plans for some big updates in 2020.

Apple Reportedly Holding Surprise December 2 Apps & Games Event

apple-october-keynote-wrap-up_tim-cook_10302018_big.jpg.large.jpg

Apple-centric site iMore reported yesterday that invitations have been sent out for a surprise Apple event to be held in New York on December 2.

Well this is new.

March, June, September, October – those are the usual months we expect our Apple events to sit within our calendars, but December? Is Apple disrupting again?

Purported to be an event in honour of the games and apps of 2019, what exactly will we see on stage on that cold Monday afternoon in New York (or hot Tuesday morning around the ungodly hour of 3am in Australia)?

Shadowgun Legends – Version 1.0.0 Coming “Sooner or Later” To Apple TV

5. Attack The Torment

ATVG has a long history of following the evolution of Shadowgun Legends from Madfinger Games. Following its release, regular updates throughout 2018 and 2019 brought it ever-closer to version 1.0.0.

While having finally reached that magic number on iOS and iPadOS earlier this month, tvOS still sits on version 0.9.4, and until the update comes through, Shadowgun Legends is unplayable on Apple TV, displaying an eternal loading screen.

ATVG reached out to Madfinger Games last week to find out if the studio still intended to support its excellent sci-fi shooter on the Apple TV platform, and received a… well… I guess you could call it a response.

With Rosie’s Reality, Apple Arcade Keeps Promise Hitting 101 Games

AppleTV-4K-1200x714.jpg

In Apple’s September event, a little over two months ago, the tech-giant made a promise: More than 100 games would come to Apple Arcade – its subscription gaming service – in the weeks following launch.

Weeks, not months.

This weekend, and just in the nick of time, Rosie’s Reality, Apple Arcade’s 101st title was released.

Phew, that was close. With Apple Arcade releasing to iOS and iPadOS on September 19 (a week later on Apple TV, and October for Macs), another few days and I could’ve written a story about broken promises. And being the eternal optimist I am, I didn’t really want to write that story.

After a slow start, 2019 has turned out to be a big year for Apple TV gaming, provided you have an Apple Arcade subscription. Without one, high quality releases have been thin on the ground, apart from a recent notable acceptation – Dead Cells (so good!).

Where to from here then Apple TV gamers?

Gone Fishing – The Apple TV Gaming Blog Will Return

Screen Shot 2019-10-07 at 8.47.37 am

Hello dear readers.

It’s time for a break.

You’re on your own for a bit, but those of you with an Apple TV (why are you reading this site if you don’t have one?), a controller, and a subscription to Apple Arcade sure have plenty of ways to entertain yourselves.

If you haven’t done so already, jump on and follow via the social feeds up in the banner, as I will no doubt share/retweet points of interest while I’m away from the bunker and not posting here on ATVG.

Also, if you stay in touch via FB or Twitter, you’ll be the first to know when ATVG returns.

So play nice, and as always, I wish you all safe planes and good whisky.

Dead End Job – Horrible Name, Perfect Apple TV Halloween Treat

Title_card.png

In 2017 ATVG found a Halloween treat – Shoot the Zombirds – to help Apple TV gamers celebrate the annual pumpkin-fest.

In 2018? ATVG’s Halloween treat went AWOL and players had to find their own fun. Sorry.

But this year ATVG is back with a perfect Halloween treat, with more ghosts, goblins, and monsters than you can point a vacuum cleaner at (that will make a lot more sense over the page, trust me).

To gain access to this year’s treat you’ll need an Apple Arcade subscription and a controller. If you have an Apple TV, and you want to turn it into a gaming console with an instant library of currently 89 kickass video games across almost every genre imaginable, then you need to pick up those two things.

For those already equipped, and for those curious, click through to learn about this year’s ghastly Halloween recommendation – Dead End Job.

Manifold Garden – Apple Arcade Pick Of The Week For Apple TV

EHLsn5lVAAAUIfH

Okay, time to try something a little different with these weekly Apple Arcade releases.

Being that this is The Apple TV Gaming Blog, or ATVG for short, I thought I’d start picking a weekly feature game out of the handful of releases, with a focus on Apple TV as a console gaming experience.

The Pick of the Week will be posted a week after release, giving this one-man-band a chance to check out the contenders. Being a very subjective pick, your mileage may vary, and if so, ATVG would love to hear from you and why you think your pick deserves to take first place on this week’s podium. Hit up the social media links in the banner at the top of your screen and share your thoughts.

As you can see from the picture above, last weekend’s titles were a varied bunch as usual, and of a high standard consistent with Apple Arcade’s current library. You can read last week’s release wrap-up right here, and I recommend checking out all four of them.

But as this is Pick of the Week, and not Picks of the Week, there can be only one.

This week ATVG’s nod goes to a game by another one-man-band – William Chyr.
