About Archetype Studios
Archetype Studios was formed by the core members of the community-led development team for Legions: Overdrive, but has since grown and now has members from around the globe, including the United States, Canada, Australia, Finland, Latvia and the UK.

Midair is our currently unreleased FPS-Z genre PC game. Tribes and Legions players will feel at home since Midair emphasizes freedom of movement and a focus on competitive and casual team play. We announced the game in the Summer of 2014. To see the game in action, check out our teaser and a community member’s recorded gameplay video from a public playtest during PAX Prime 2015 below. You can also check out our Media, Facebook and Twitter pages.

Not sure why my post was tagged as “Unpaid.” I state in the post that compensation varies dependent on a variety of factors. Not sure how to edit it now. Can a mod help?
