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.

“One Guy Shouldn’t Be Able To Make Meridian: New World”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“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”

O tej grze

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.

Quite possibly the worst game I have ever played. I also bought the "Special Edition" in retail and the disc doesnt even have the bloody installer on it. Had to download that myself through Steam.

Visually the game is solid (minus the UI) but it fails in pretty much every other catergory.
It may be an excuse to say it was essentially made by one guy but; "That ♥♥♥♥ aint logical captain". No game should come out strait from EA to full retail in this fashion.

UI is all backwards, no grouping, poor unit pathing, rigid and badly zoomed and angeld camera, it's all bad all the time.

Tries to be starcraft without the balance. Player units are too weak, enemy seemingly has no unit cap while player is dreadfully limited. Pitiful tech trees and weapon upgrades that don't seem to perform as stated. If you're looking for a good RTS on steam you're better off with Supreme Commander or Planetary Annihilation.

Oh goodness where do I begin with this game? At first I was a bit worried that another indie RTS was being pushed out on Steam as, well I know I can speak for most of the people looking at this game, we've been burnt out and screwed over by developers that spend a whopping two months and call it a game then charge an arm and a leg... Well let me be the first one to tell you that this isn't one of those games at all!

Dear lord if you want edge of your seat gameplay, better than normal base building, an interesting campaign with hopes for the future, and units that are wonderfully designed and almost perfectly customizable this game is for you! Campaign plops you down in an interesting mix of a colonization story gone wrong. I won't spoil anything but goodness that's one fine story I'm still crawling through. Loading times? Forget about em! This game has none and in the places where it does have them it's a whole whopping two second wait at the most (might be a little longer for some older computer rigs; not sure but it won't take you long!)

Things that really stick out for this game in my opinion? Probably the graphics and music. You can see the screenshots and while I was skeptical at first that they were just glorified photoshopped images I can gladly say that is not the case at all. The game is literally that beautiful and the music that plays just bolsters the overwhelming beauty of this game. If you have the money for it I would gladly tell you to buy this one! You will not be upset with your purchase at all.

Believe you/me friend, I'm tired of getting the short end of the stick because I love RTS games and will stand by this game as long as it continues to be worked on. Thanks Dark for rekindling my trust in indie RTS games.

Simply put, this game is awful to actually play. If that's all you need from a review, you can stop here. If you want to know WHY this game is awful, keep reading.

1. Storyline
The story is pretty uninspired. It's not completely terrible, but it's nothing you haven't seen before. Maybe it gets better, but I couldn't get too far due to numerous frustrations before I dropped the game. The voice acting is at best, average. WIth woodenly delivered lines, and dialogue that could have been written by a chat-bot.

2. Gameplay
This is the main problem. An average to below average plot/voice acting can often be made up for in gameplay. Unfortunately these developers seem to have forgotten how RTS' work.

Problem 1: The perspective and selection of units.
The angle of the game, and the awful awful unit boxes make it very difficult to get all your units, or select individual units, or really do basic things quickly and efficiently. Did you miss on of your units when trying to select it? Well screw you player! Because now you have NOTHING selected. Isn't that great? There are several abilities in the game that you are to use on a singular unit. This is difficult and can cause issues. Anyone who is used to a well made RTS, and want's to micro and control army effectively is in for a bad time. This however, is not the only contributor to that bad time.

Problem 2: The (lack of) pathfinding
You know when you play a game, and sometimes your unit happens to go a weird way around the map to the location you sent it to? Usually doesn't happen that often, and usually isn't a big deal. That's not the case In Meridian: forgotten mechanics. Do you want to move somewhere specific? They will eventually get there. Not together, not in a timely manner, but eventually. Just hope there are no enemies to fight.

What happens when there are enemies? Well I'm glad you asked! See, if you run in to an enemy, while moving around the map, chances are everyone in your dumb as hell army has separated into squads of 1. Thankfully, the enemy AI will just put them out of their misery. Now, it is possible you'll actually have your army together and want to attack. One of the basic moves in an RTS is to Attack move. In almost every RTS ever made, as soon as an enemy is in sight and range, the guns start blazing. In "Meridian: What LSD trip made us think we knew how to make a game", you will find, at almost every occasion, your units running directly at the enemy without firing. Without realizing that they are NOT some sort of kamikaze unit. Without deigning to obey your commands in a remotely satisfactory manner.

Thanks to these amazing mechanics, you often need to retreat to try to herd your dumb struck army in to a semblance of a group so you can actually play the game. In most RTS' retreat is a viable strategy. In "Meridian: Oh my GOD does anyone know how to walk?" this is nigh impossible. Retreating involves attempting to move away from the enemy. In the unlikely event your units actually manage to walk away from the enemy, you will find them immediately attempting to engage the enemy. The worst part is, the terrible pathing and AI means that they will have half trying to get back somewhere, half who are going the other way and get stuck on eachother, and no one actually firing on the enemy OR retreating. The target acquisition range is just absolutely nuts. It doesn't make sense. I've had units react to hostiles WHO WEREN"T VISIBLE YET. I'm pretty sure Chewbacca lives on Endor, because it just doesn't, make, sense.

Bonus problem:
Hotkeys. I get having your own hotkeys for your game so you can be "different" so all the cool kids will like you. But changing fundamentals like moving the hold position command from 'H' to 'E' is just plain stupid. There's many similar changes in this game. "Meridian: who even needs hotkeys anyway" decided to reinvent their hotkeys from the refined version most games have settled with, to a new pile of crap that no one wants to be in.

3. Graphics
This is the only area where Meridian: Really Shiny gets any sort of credit. I'm not saying it's a visually stunning masterpiece. But it is nice. It's vibrant. Also really shiny. Nothing to write home about, but nothing particularly bad either.

Final Thoughts: There are lots of RTS games out there. There is a reason that Command and Conquer, Warcraft 1, 2 AND 3, Starcraft 1 AND 2 are all timeless classics. There is a reason that most RTS games have similar if not identical base mechanics to each other. It's because they WORK, and they work WELL. They allow strategy, micro and macro. Meridian: Barely a functional game decided that's not necessary in their RTS. They wanted to be different, to be cool, instead everyone should be making fun of them and ignoring them.

Meridian: New World – Review –
Warning: This review is based on a review copy played before the games release so everything could be different and is still subject to change.
Game Background //
Meridian: New World is an Indie Real Time Strategy created by Elder Games and published under Merge Games & Headup Games.

Meridian brings back a feel of the old C&C Westwood days by giving you a unique RTS experience with unit customization and a levelling system with an ability tree for yourself as you command over the battlefield.
The Story //
You play as Commander Daniel Hanson of the first mission to a remote planet known as Meridian. Just as everything seems that it’s going good and you prepare to leave the planet when an unknown distress call is intercepted on the surface. Its origin unknown you set to find out what the cause of the message was. However, everything falls to panic when a mysterious enemy begins an assault on you while you are scouting a power plant on the surface. Who is this enemy and what do they want?
(This is purely based on the first mission alone to avoid spoilers as much as possible.)
Gameplay //
Meridian gives you a Command & Conquer play style with the unit control of earth 2160. This comes together rather well however at points unit pathing can be a problem as it is hard to define what is and isn’t clickable terrain.

The base building is satisfying and refreshing to the RTS genre with the original style of building on a grid layout similar to StarCraft. This makes both building your base and navigating it enjoyable and simple.
The general combat of the game seems pretty simple at first. Just chuck units at each other and see who wins. However the game actually has unit customization and each unit aside from the foot solider can have a weapon set such as the auto-cannon or laser.
This allows units to be countered by weaknesses and really makes you think if you should engage the enemy or not.

The only problem I have with the overall gameplay is that there needs to be some more units. However this is a WIP so more should come hopefully!
Sound //
The sound assets for the game are surprisingly good and flow well with the overall experience of the game. Voice acting is realisc and flows well with the game. It’s really hard to believe that one guy managed to make the game.
Final verdict //
For me, Meridian gave back a good feel of the RTS genre to me and has given me already more hours than I will typically play a game for.
Overall I give the game a 7/10 in its current state, this may go up or down in future versions of the game.
The main benefits of the game are:
Unit Customization –
Good base building –
Story –
The downsides are:
Range of units –
Unnecessary points in the story such as the tower defence segment.

Thanks for reading my review!
Sorry for any spelling or Grammar errors!
