It is the distant future. Humanity have never dreamt of surviving for so long. The few hundred human beings have managed to construct Arcan Central, and hide from the outer world. From the many horrors they had to suffer. Somehow, Earth had become a barren wasteland, but no one seems to remember why did that happen. Have wars scorched our planet? Was it some kind of accident that destroyed almost any lifeform on our homeworld? The council means everything. They are the protection, the safety... they live to serve humanity. To prevent any of the council members from gaining too much power, a Controller is elected from the inhabitants. This Controller must command the Droid army, created by the Council. Arcan is a unique sci-fi turn-based strategy game, with significant RPG elements. All characters on a map have the ability to evolve, and even combine their abilities with other units. So, despite the relatively small amount of unit types, it is impossible to fight the same battle twice

Meridian: New World is a single player sci-fi real-time strategy game, with a focus on storytelling. 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.

Features of Meridian:

  • Traditional RTS gameplay with a focus on strategy - the forceful approach rarely works
  • Experience a world of choices where every decision has an impact on the world around you
  • Use the right tool to get the job done: equip your units with 15 different weapons
  • Gain XP during battle and upgrade your commander profile with special combat abilities
  • Get to know the people on board your ship: by talking to them, you influence the crew's behavior
  • The level editor and scripting tool used to build the campaign will be available upon release
  • Never run out of maps with the in-game custom map downloader and official levels made available frequently after the game's release

Since too many people were downloading the outdated version still, I decided to remove that download. For those who don't own Arcan yet, please download Arcan v 1.6.1. - Release.

I am pretty keen on what I've seen of the game so far, my only gripe being with the available resolutions. Is there any possibility of future versions supporting higher resolutions, and widescreen ones (I use 1680x1050). Even if this meant doing what people did with the original fallouts and increasing the area being viewed without increasing the resolution of anything there it would be much appreciated. In any case, a great game, well done.

I am afraid, it isn't possible at this point to add more resolutions to this game. We are fully aware of this issue though, and our future projects will support all available resolutions on all videocards.

There is play via IP, Lord Crusare can perhaps make a post on how to set it up, as far as i know (Its been a while since i played arcan since im working on Shattered Origins now) you have to fill in the ip of the other player and vice versa and then you can play. Fun with skype or MSN voice on :D

If you enter the config utility, and set everything to low, then even a GeForce 2 can handle this game. For full-scale graphics, you'd need at least a card from the 6th series. The game is pretty CPU-hungry though, the speed should not be lower than 1 Ghz. As for memory, 512 MB is the required amount, but 1 GB is highly recommended.
