Across the Board on Apple Arcade: Putting DOTS Through its Paces

Wednesday 13th July: 11.00 - 11.45 Room 4

We will present our experience co-developing "Detonation Racing" for Apple Arcade.  We will review our experience using the DOTS architecture in Unity to develop a scalable system that played to the strengths of a wide range of device capabilities.  We will share details of our vehicle handling implementation using the DOTS physics engine and discuss how we leveraged variable time-steps to support non-interactive sequences during gameplay.  We will provide an overview of an internally developed offline visibility culling system for reducing vertex bandwidth, and give an overview of the performance reporting system that was utilised to ensure we could release a high-quality and high-performance title across the board of target devices on the Apple platform.


  • Specific lessons learned using DOTS on a real-world project
  • Detailed description of rendering optimizations and performance reporting system 
  • Practical guidance for developing/testing/deploying to mobile, Apple TV, Mac
