FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BLUEGIANT INTERACTIVE ANNOUNCES APOX - Coming Late 2010 for PC and MAC

Hyderabad, India (September 9th, 2010) – Game developer BlueGiant Interactive today officially
announced their upcoming title, APOX. APOX is a real-time strategy game set in a near post-apocalyptic,
Mad-Max-esque universe.

“APOX is an RTS game at its core, although it blends in elements of FPS and RPG genres. We introduced
FPS concepts like equipping multiple weapons, weapon drops, and limited ammo. We added RPG
elements such as experience (veterancy) and giving units a high level of customization. You can put any
soldier type into any vehicle type and essentially create dozens of unique unit variations,” said Mark
Currie, Lead Designer.

BlueGiant has released a gameplay video which is viewable at the APOX website www.apoxgame.com.
APOX is using the open source rendering engine OGRE. The video demonstrates the high level of visual
quality that can be achieved with OGRE. “We are really proud of APOX. We are the first Indian studio to
make a game of this quality and scale,” said Vinnie Reddy, CEO of BlueGiant.

Key Features of APOX

- Prone, cover, and realistic line-of-fire
- Realistic ammo and fuel supply system
- Soldiers can be placed in vehicles to create new unit types
- Over 100 maps
- Map editor for player-designed maps and game modes
- Supports multiplayer games with up to 32 players

APOX has community features like online matchmaking, stat tracking, ladders, clan matches, and
tournaments. The developers will provide frequent updates to support the player community.
