"Apogee Means Action."
Apogee Software Ltd. is a Video Game development and publishing company that was founded in 1987. It started using 3D Realms (instead of Apogee) as its trade name in 1994, focusing on three-dimensional games from that point; as well as Pinball Wizards, the division of Apogee that focused on pinball games. Then in 2008, members of Apogee Ltd formed a separate company called Apogee Software LLC, focusing on publishing their older titles for portable devices.

Apogee Ltd was one of the major shareware publishers in te late '80s and early '90s. It spearheaded the model of episodic games, where the first episode is available for free and the other episodes have to be paid for. Subsequent episodes are Mission Pack Sequels, i.e. the same game engine and enemies, but additional levels. Apogee used to publish games for other companies, such as id Software before it went independent.
