[ Game -> Update ]

APOX has reached the open beta phase. Check out the press release:

APOX - OPEN BETA ON STEAM


BlueGiant Interactive announces APOX Open Beta on Steam
December 23rd, 2010 (Hyderabad, India): BlueGiant Interactive, an independent game developer, has announced that it has reached open beta for its latest game, entitled APOX. BlueGiant Interactive has recently completed several rounds of closed beta testing, lasting several months and involving hundreds of beta testers. The open beta is being hosted exclusively on Steam and is expected to last two weeks. Beta serial keys are freely available at the APOX website (www.apoxgame.com).

APOX is a real-time strategy game that uniquely includes gameplay concepts from first-person shooters. Like in a FPS, you can prone, crouch, switch active weapons, throw grenades, and loot corpses. Soldiers in APOX have limited ammo, but ammo sharing is done seamlessly. Soldiers can be placed in vehicles, and this essentially lets you create your own unit designs. APOX keeps everything that makes RTS great like making bases, controlling strategic sites, and managing your resources.

Key Features

FPS-like tactics including prone, taking cover, limited ammo, weapon drops
8 Combat Training Missions
100 Scrimmage Maps
Massive games with up to 32 players
Play against AI-controlled bots in single player or co-op mode
Play against humans in versus mode
Steam achievements, stat tracking, leaderboard, and voice chat

I remember the good all days when you were only a single pixel, and shot in every direction but the one you wanted.

Tried it... nothing fancy. It's just an RTS in an post-apoc setting with limited ammo & gas.

Maybe for a couple of hours, I guess? I was left between reality-TV and APOX this afternoon, and I chose reality-TV.
