Nodes of Yesod for AppleTV / tvOS

We've been fortunate to receive an AppleTV 4th generation dev kit from Apple, so naturally it makes sense to create a new version - Nodes of Yesod 30th Anniversary Edition for AppleTV!

Here's a first playable running on the device.


Other than the changes to allow the game to be played on the Siri touch remote, work has been done to update the screen @ 60fps, which means much smoother on-screen movement for Astro Charlie. This can be seen in the above video (albeit through the lens of an iPhone, so the quality of the video is not the best).

No word yet on release date, but hopefully this will be wrapped up within the next few weeks ready for launch of the new AppleTV.
