There was a time when Apple events showcased Apple’s work but today, Melbourne developers Hipster Whale put their incredibly popular app Crossy Road in front of the world as they showcased the gaming capability of the new Apple TV.
The game, which for old timers will bring back memories of the popular arcade game Frogger, has been incredibly popular on the iPad and iPhone. But it was showcased with new multi-player capability, on the new Apple TV.
Andy Sum, one of the game’s developers, took the stage to show the game off. Over Twitter, he told the world this was “a moment I’m really proud of”.
Although the Apple TV is yet to be released, Sum says the game will be ready on day one with other games in the pipeline for the home-grown indie game developers.
The company recently won an Apple Design award, which Sum’s co-founder Matt Hall accepted earlier this year. So, having accepted a trip to the US previously, this was Sum’s turn.
