Have a robot adventure on your Apple TV
Apple doesn’t make it easy to find quality games for your Apple TV, but that’s why we’re here to help. To prove it, we invite you to check out Abi: A Robot’s Tale.
Developed by Lilith Games, Abi was released to the App Store on November 1st, but spent a good deal of time before that racking up awards—such as 1st place at the Big Indie Pitch on ChinaJoy (organized by pocketgamer.co.uk)—and nominations for the International Mobile Gaming Awards and for Excellence at Visual Art at Indieplay.
Why all the love? Take a look.
That kind of makes me sad, actually, but beautiful things often do.
About the game:
The world was once a place brimming with life, a place full of people. Now, the last of humanity has mysteriously disappeared in pursuit of perfection and immortality, transforming themselves into machines. Then they vanished altogether. The only beings left are the robots who were once servants to humanity.
The team of two:
• ABI, a small robot programmed to assume a parenting / educational role
• DD, a large heavy industrial robot programmed to help with industrial production.
Each of them having their own reasons, they set off together on an adventure of exploration, joy and hardship.
Do you want to know their story?
I do, in fact. And judging from the trailer and App Store description, Abi: A Robot’s Tale looks like it’s perfectly suited for Apple TV gaming. The visuals are made for large presentation, and the puzzle solving should be more fun with a group of people helping out. The description doesn’t list MFi controller support, but an update on November 6th lists “Optimize jump controller” as one of the fixes, so the developers are at least dedicated to providing a smooth gaming experience.
