The Apollo Project

The Apollo Project is a stealth action shooter using UE5. Use the world around you and your powers to survive on The Island.

"The Apollo Project is a near future, sci-fi Stealth Action game that ponders on the effects of inaction by political and corporate strife.\r\n\r\nThe lone pawn in a game of capitalism, you must fight against those seeking to create a paradise only for themselves while casting out all others to die from a disaster that is not theirs to burden. Each piece of the puzzle reveals the truth and how our world is much bigger than each other.\r\n\r\nSet in a world like ours (if our worst fears became true), The Apollo Project combines the stealth and tension of Metal Gear Solid with the power fantasy and over the top combat of Deathloop and Cyberpunk 2077."
