Slip into the role of Daniel Hanson, commander of the first mission to a remote planet called Meridian. Assured of the fact that the planet is uninhabited, the unexpected reception of a distress call from the surface could mean many things, none of which you are prepared for.

Meridian: Squad 22 is Coming Soon!

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to Meridian: Squad 22, the sequel to Meridian: New World!

There's a lot to discuss about the game, we'll jump right in with graphics and AI!

All of Meridian: Squad 22's units have much greater detail than in the prequel, Meridian: New World. Though Meridian: Squad 22 features a few units from the first game, these have been completely re-modelled and re-textured with great attention to detail.
The water effect was also re-designed for improved realism. This is especially important because Squad 22 features naval units, so the active gameplay will often be focused on the water surface.
And of course, unlike its predecessor, Squad 22 also features zooming and rotation! :)

In Meridian: New World, the pathfinding was sub-par because units were unaware of each other entirely. This is very clear when you take a look at how individual units attempted to find a path, they bumped into each other and immediately searched for a new path, delaying general movement. In Meridian: Squad 22 however, units accelerate and decelerate based on the surrounding units and adjust their path by predicting where nearby units will end up. This results in much smoother movement and better controls.

“One Guy Shouldn’t Be Able To Make Meridian: New World”

“Upon first look, Meridian seems to rival – at least, visually – the most high profile of triple-A RTS games on the market, and it was only crafted in two years. Take note, Blizzard.”

“With units allowed to equip items, a leveling system for you the commander, and a new emphasis on storytelling, Meridian may just be the evolution of the RTS genre”

Tietoja pelistä

An accomplished, old-school, indie, futuristic Sci-fi RTS with RPG elements!!

Play as Daniel Hanson, commander of the first expedition to planet Meridian and uncover the dark secrets it holds! Shape the world around you with every decision you make and through every dialogue with your crew. Meridian: New World offers countless options to devise your own strategy, including various equipment options for your units and special abilities for you to rely upon. Use your abilities anywhere on the battlefield and turn the tide of battle by weakening the enemy troops. Alternatively take the covert approach and sabotage the enemy power supply to shut down their production. You can rely entirely on researching superior weapons or special abilities. Or you can risk building a large economy, constructing a massive army from your enormous resources. The strategy you use and how many troops you sacrifice to reach your goal will influence the attitude of your crew towards you. Are you ready to shape the history of galactic colonization?

Brought to you as the brainchild of Ede Tarsoly - the sole man behind Elder Games - Meridian: New World was mostly received with disbelief and awe at the fact that it's a one-man production. While it remains true that Ede is the source of every detail of the game, some assets were created by his friends Balázs Bodnár, Tamás Gyermán and Gábor Menyhárt, who are credited with their contribution.

I don't understand all the negative reviews for this. If you've played the class 1990s RTS games like Warcraft 1/2 or Command and Conquer, it's great.

Feels like it could have potential, but held back by lackluster AI and an over reliance on Zerg Rushes to do anything.

In skirmish mode, so far as I can tell, the AI doesn't play by the same rules as you and will happily send a dozen units to attack your base in the first 60 seconds of a match - despite the fact you haven't even been able to build a barraks yet.

This game does not know how to resolution. Switching to windowed mode, leaves you with a 1024x768 (4:3) window, that cannot be resized to 16:9, and if you force the window to resize (through user32.dll calls) it borks out. In fullscreen, it awkwardly defies the natural resolution of your monitor, and stretches the image. In 2014... really.

The UI, when typing, is rather unresponsive. Press the keys slowly, for every key to be registered. It's terrible.

The AI of your own units is dumb as a pile of poop, making micromanagement nigh impossible. Being able to save hurt units is more luck than anything.

Since you can't see what keys you CAN use, I will have to assume that you cannot group units under a hotkey, which is a default must have since 1489 BC, or the more recent saving hotkeys to map positions since 700 AD. Good job, guys.

Since metal is a music genre right up my alley, the combat music suits me. Though most of the time, the game just quiets down and doesn't play any music at all, until an event triggers a new track to play.

You cannot rebind any keys in the controls options menu (which only sets mouse sensitivity and... uh... some other toggleable option. I wanted to check, but now after quitting the game, it doesn't even start anymore. The EXE file just exits immediately. Well, so much for that. But at least it didn't crash while playing.) which there is no excuse for.

But what upset me most of all in the 4.5 hours of playing the campaign is the dumbfukked AI of your very own units.

For a 2014 RTS game, this really is a rather crap.

It has a few problem, but it still a good, old-school RTS. I wonder why it has this much negative review

If I didnt spend more time fighting horrible controls and pathfinding, than I do fighting the enemy, this might be a good game. But as even the most basic movements are problematic for your troups, this is a failure.
Even the simple idea of moving your troops away from battle, or for that matter, even moving in 1 direction, leaves them wandering in all directions ... terrible. Its a pitty, as graphics are nice, sound is ok, and it looks like it could have been a fun game.
