Oceanhorn is ready for Apple TV launch!

Precise controls for Remote and MFI Controller !

Apple launching a new device is always exciting time for us and this time we are especially thrilled, since Oceanhorn is about to debut in your living rooms thanks to the amazing hardware of Apple TV!

To ensure your adventure on big screen is a joyful one, we made several improvements to the game. The camera shows more action around the main character. The landscapes are more detailed and the fields, forests and the dungeons are littered with detail objects.

Apple TV Remote proved to be great controller for Oceanhorn as we have always relied on simple, yet efficient controls. You hold the remote like it is supposed to and click the track pad for sword swings and interaction. Oceanhorn also works very well with an MFI Controller!

Oceanhorn for Apple TV is a universal build, so if you have previously purchased Oceanhorn on iOS you can download it free of charge to play it on your TV.

Stay tuned for more Oceanhorn news in the future!

  1. What would the best hand-held controller for Oceanhorn be for the Apple TV version? :)

    3. I'm using the nimbus too but whenever I use the secondary button for shield etc... it dumps me out to the AppleTV menu. Anyone else found a way to solve this issue?

    8. iCloud saves won't work. I have a few hours save on my ipad/icloud. When I start the game using AppleTV it says I have a Cloud saved game and asks if I would like to start as remote or local save. Even though I select remote (icloud) it starts a new game anyway... =(

      Delete
  2. Any chance of Cloud saves coming to the Apple TV version?
    I haven't finished the game yet and thought the Apple TV version would be a great way to finish off (need to grab that Coral Sword!).

    1. Apple changed iCloud communication with tvOS an unfortunately mechanics provided are not compatible with iOS version. We will fix this in upcomin

    2. Looking for this as well. The game looks outstanding on Apple TV! Nice job!

    3. Been waiting on this since I got my ATV 4. Please update soon, got a Stratus today as well. Can't wait to play on the big screen!

    4. I lost my game saves on Apple TV. Contacted developer. They said an update is coming soon

    5. How come Gameloft had no problem with iCloud syncing when releasing Asphalt8 on the Apple TV, but FDG can't get it done with Oceanhorn?

      Delete
    6. Any update on the iOS to tvOS iCloud compatibility? I started on iOS many months ago and it fell by the wayside... my apple tv has definitely rekindled my interest, but I won't be playing until that save file is compatible!

  3. I'm agree with Siilus for the Cloud saving.
    And maybe, can you had the possibility to use our iPhone / iPad like a remote control to play on the Apple TV?

  5. iPhone/iPad as a remote controller would be really nice.

  6. So Heikki.. Is it out yet? How will I get to play it on my Apple TV since I can't see the iTunes Store as an Apple TV app? Is there a guide somewhere? :-)
    Thanks!

  7. I had the versions for iPhone, but never played it much. Now I started on Apple TV with the controller and it is great.

    But I cannot get it to access iCloud! I have deleted everything twice and restarted, but it only saves locally. I have left a help request on your site, but it has gone unanswered.

    Looking at iCloud storage on my iPhone and OS X, I can see the save file in iCloud.

    Help!!!!!

    1. Just saw your previous response. How long for the iCloud compatibility?
      Any plans for an App Store version on OSX for iCloud saving there?

  8. There seems to be a bug or incompatibility with the Nimbus mfi controller: if you hold b for shield for a longer time, lets say over 3 seconds and let go the apple tv dashboard opens. Ok, you can click on the oceanhorn tile and return to where yo are, but this is most annoying.

    1. I'm having the same issue as Reiner - it's very frustrating at times when you want to keep the shield raised - just constantly getting dumped out of the app. Any chance for a fix? Thanks for the great game!

    2. Have you found a method to aim while traveling in the ship using the nimbus controller? I keep having to switch back to the AppleTV remote to aim during these sequences.

      Delete
    3. Hmmm. Must be a bug you're experiencing, because I've been able to aim using either the left thumbstick or the D pad. Seems like there are a few bugs to work out yet!!

  9. I have been waiting to play this game for a while, but as soon as I plugged in my new Apple TV I got it and LOVE it. I hope there will be a sequel some time in the future. Great job!!!

  10. So I've been playing Oeanhorn on my AppleTV and it's really awesome. One thing though, after achieving pretty much everything, I've gotten stuck. Literally I'm stuck. I'm on Gillfolks Drop and I went up some stairs to get a chest (to the right of the locked gate that leads to the frozen palace) I then jumped down because I saw I had not gotten the heart on top of the seashell. I am now behind a locked gate and some of my entry and exits are blocked off. I'm assuming because I've defeated the boss in the frozen palace. Either way...I can't get out. I've been every which way I know. It'd really bum me out to have to start over. All I had left was to actually beat oceanhorn. Any suggestions or thoughts as to what I can do? Thanks.

  11. I have the latest tvOS installed and still have no background music for this game. I have deleted and reinstalled twice already and still no luck. Everything else seems to work fine. Just no background music at all. Will there be a fix for this?

    ReplyDelete
  12. My game keeps resetting/losing its save state. After a couple of days when I launch it, there is nothing saved in slot 1 where I started.

    This has happened twice so far.

    1. This is happening to me too. This actually is happening on all my Apple TV games... What's going on?

  13. I'm still stuck on Gillfolks Island...anyone have any suggestions? I'm locked behind a locked gate.

  14. Lost my game save (10+ hours) on my Apple TV today. Just vanished for no apparent reason. Any fix planned?

    1. I also lost my save game (twice) once after playing about an hour, the second time after about 10 hours. ETA on fix?

      Delete
    2. I hope the game is still in the cloud.. and they fix it soon. discovered that 10+ hours of saved files are missing. Read somewhere else that they were working on it, and not to start a new game in the same slot.. as it would overwrite the saved files. Fingers crossed.

    3. I posted this to another person's comment above, but his is happening to me too. Also happened to the Rayman game I have, could be a problem with iCloud. The games must not be saved locally because these are universal apps.

      Delete
    4. It's not iCloud, the steam version of this game had the same issue according to the internet

  15. lost my saves so cannot play till the fix is done. What is the eta of the fix

  17. The TV version constantly wipes my save file. SOOO frustrating
    makes it unplayable

    ReplyDelete
  18. I also losz my savegames 3 times. Not playable for me and my kid on the atv because its to frustrating to begin from new one. I hope a fix brings the savegames back.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Lost my saves too. Very annoying for such a good game for Apple TV.

    Another glitch: when casting magic using SteelSeries Nimbus controller, I cannot use neither the D-pad nor the analog joysticks to move the hand cursor to select target. Could you please fix it too?

    Thanks!

    1. I have that problem - work around is to use the Apple TV remote to direct the hand cursor...

  20. Lost my save on apple tv, the game NEEDS icloud to be playable

    ReplyDelete
  21. Several other games on the Apple TV are able to iCloud sync with iOS, so the excuse that it can't is bullshit. The developer of Oceanhorn is just too lazy to add the feature.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I came here to say you cant aim the magic spells without the siri remote, please fix this. Thanks!

    Anyway, nice game.

  23. Do we have an idea when iCloud saves will come to the Apple TV?

  24. Anyone been having this issue? I've located the exact same Pieces of Heart 3 times now at the same exact locations, I've repeatedly unlocked the same fifth health container 3 times, and every single time after a day or two, I enter the game again, and my fifth health container is gone, and so are the Pieces of Heart I have collected. So I have to travel to the same island, go to the same place, get the same Pieces of Heart, and unlock the same health container all over again. It's a tedious unnecessary process and I have no clue if this is an isolated issue

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have had the same problem so it must be a bug. Also I've found the special shield which creates a blue circle causes a drop out in the game when released.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Is this coming to PSN or XBL? Ideally I'd like to play it on Vita but I'm not naive; that's a long, long shot. PS4 would be great.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Do you think an OS X version of this game might ever come to the Steam store, since it's also been released as an iOS game?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Is there a way to run faster on the tvOs version of Oceanhorn? I'm using the Nimbus controler.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Pleace a OSX and XBOX One Version :-)

  30. Great game! But cannot choose which iCloud on iPhone to continue playing - it find two saves (TV and iPhone) on iCloud, but I can only play with the iPhone save. Needs some tweak!
