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.

  • Never run out of maps with the in-game custom map downloader and official levels made available frequently after the game's release

It is interesting what you say, because I tried this on Vista machines, if all your drivers are installed (OpenGL drivers), then it must run properly.

Ill try it on vista as well as windows 7 this afternoon and then report my findings to Lord_Crusare, perhaps a patch is in order, perhaps its a simple thing that is easily overlooked, thanks for noticing this :)

If anyone else encounters a bug or issue please mail Lord_Crusare or me (so ill forward it to him :P)

You have to do at least 50 pushups without breathing and with a Hummvee on your back. In 30 seconds. On one hand. Whilst on fire.

Nah, no catch, but we'dd love it if you tell your friends about it and play Arcan with them too, and feedback is always welcome :)

The catch is that there is no catch :) . We want as many players to be able to play this game as possible. If the players want more (expansions, patches), they can support us by donating some money to the bank accounts provided with the game. Other than that, the game is absolutely free for everyone to play.

We will be a bit late with the release, due to some technical issues. When we resolved these, we'll upload the full version right away.
