I don't really understand why Superliminal is included in that list. Pretty sure it's a Unity game.
While it's not zero effort to get a Unity game working on a new platform, the developer's arguments about having to learn Metal or Swift don't apply.

That's a single game among literally dozens of others which are built on either proprietary or non-crossplatform engines.
