APG is an FPS focusing on simplicity of function and complexity of interaction. APG has a fair Free-To-Play model that gives all accounts the same gameplay options.
We are making this game because we want to improve the FPS genre and we want your help.
The areas that APG is focused on include:
1. Multitude of ways to play
We empower you to control your own objectives through the challenge system. Create more unique game play through tons of asymmetrical accessories, weapons, and weapon mods. Highly customizable loadout options.
2. Strategic Decision Making
We employ lots of risk-reward mechanics such as capturing: gain an enemies bounty and destroy their market access and weapons. Take on someones challenge; first to the objective wins. Spend credits on getting the best of items and placing bounties on enemies, or save in case you need to refill and heal.
3. Development with Player Engagement
Most of our player engagement mechanics are still in development. However, we currently have an external voting system to allow players to influence development choices.
At the end of the day, we're trying to make a really fun FPS that pushes the boundaries. We hope you join us and help improve this genre together.

We now have weekly alpha playtest where everyone can hang out with us in Mumble and play the game. This starts this Sunday at 3:00 PM EST and will happen every week at this time.
You can download the game from: Arcturusprovinggrounds.com. If the setup.exe fails to download properly (an integrity check failure) please try to re-download from my computer via Dl.dropboxusercontent.com We hope to have the game also downloadable via Desura in the upcoming few weeks.
For this upcoming playtest we made a new video going over some of our core mechanics:
