GameSpot’s Otto Kratky reminisced on the games published by Apogee Software in the ’90s in his piece on where the company is headed next. Rebranded now as Apogee Entertainment, the original indie game publisher behind groundbreaking titles like Duke Nukem, Max Payne, and Wolfenstein 3D will seek out diamonds in the rough.
Hosted by Jon St. John, the original voice behind Duke Nukem, the showcase provided brief snippets of games currently in development that will be published by Apogee. Currently, the publisher has a zombie title, a first-person shooter, and an apparent Commander Keen remaster in the works, among other projects.
The first project revealed by Apogee is Residual, a survival platformer being developed by OrangePixel. The game will place players in the shoes of a space-faring explorer who crashlands on alien planets. Using their wits and the technology left behind by countless past civilizations, players will have to survive the inhospitable worlds. Residual is set to launch this fall on the Switch, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam.Otto Kratky, GameSpot
