The Game:

Developed by Elder Games, Meridian: Squad 22 is a real-time strategy game that boast gorgeous graphics and well-polished gameplay. The game’s strengths come from a combination of combat strategies, light RPG elements, and a familiar atmosphere. What’s surprising about this sequel, at least for me, is how difficult it can be at times and still manage to keep my attention throughout each mission.


story 3
story 4
When I booted up Meridian: Squad 22 for the first time, I did not know what to expect because it has been such a long time since I played a real-time strategy game. What really brought everything together for me was how well Elder Games was able to present all the elements of the game. Little things like textures used for the water, lighting, and the structure of each level were some of the best that I have seen when compared to some of the more recent titles. While the combat was similar to games like Halo Wars and StarCraft, it was extremely satisfying and left me wanting more. It is really hard to find games that have all of their elements functioning in a satisfying manner and that is where Elder Games deserves the credit.


The interesting aspect of Meridian: Squad 22 was that it was mentioned within the game’s trailer that the game was developed by one man. It is really hard to imagine that when considering the elements mentioned above but who can really doubt that when there are talented developers with tons of motivation out there? With only four available missions, the developer promises more content is on the way to support the campaign. It is worth noting that this game has just recently left its “Early Access” stage. The question is… how worth is it playing a game that is still very much under development? The answer is simple because Meridian: Squad 22 is a lot of fun and a call back to some of the more established real-time strategy games.


campaign story 1
campaign story 2
Meridian: Squad 22 follows the events of its predecessor, Meridian: New World, and takes place in the nearby future. In this future, a shortage of water and food threaten the entire Earth and force those in charge to send out a recon team to the planet of Meridian to assess any possibility of habitation. As the team completed its course to Meridian, communication with those on Earth fell silent.


The plot seemed very similar to some of the films within the sci-fi genre but that did not seem to do the game any harm at all. Players must travel to this planet in order to find answers to what happened during the initial mission. Upon descending, Squad 22’s ship is shot down and players are confronted be scattered groups of aliens that are waiting to unleash chaos. This approach is really smart because it forces players to learn all the little nuances of the game – which is good for players who new to this style of gameplay. It was especially good for me due to my extended vacation from real-time strategy games. However, Meridian: Squad 22 eased me right back into the fold with the easy to understand tutorial it started me out with.


Meridian Squad 22 - main menu ii
Meridian Squad 22 - options 1
As I stated earlier, the elements of Meridian: Squad 22 were present very well and the gameplay is no exception here. The overall nature of the game is similar to others in the genre it terms of its basic functionality. Players simply click on the units that they wish to move and then click on an area of the map to send them to. Attacking enemies in the game works in a similar fashion as players can just click on those that they want to attack – most real-time strategy games utilize the same core functionality.


What I really enjoyed about this game was establishing a “base of operations” and having to defend it. To establish any units or additional troops, players have to collect the corresponding amount of Shardium (a form of currency) using drones. Like anything else in Meridian: Squad 22, you must defend your assets in order to reach the objective. If the drone that is collecting the Shardium is taken down, Shardium production cease and progress toward the objective will slow down and players will have to build a new drone. This action can be done by clicking on the factory and selecting the drone on the bottom left of the screen. The same can be done for any of the other units as long as you have the required materials to do so.

mode 2 - squad missions
mode 3 - conquest 2
For example, if I want to build a drone that harvests Shardium it would take about 15-20 seconds for the unit to be created. Once the unit is finished and ready to go, it will come off an assembly line – waiting to be directed. There is no order in terms of each unit’s production but if you do not have a substantial amount of Shardium, settling for the cheaper unit may have to do until you can purchase what you really want to utilize.


It is important to mention that some units work in conjunction whether each other – each stage has an officer or two that you must protect at all times. If that officer dies, the game is over and you have to start over from the beginning as the officers cannot be purchased. Units such as chimera, soldiers, drone, and the crusader can always be repurchased but at a cost of being vulnerable. Since the enemy has a similar attack pattern to what the player can do, it is important to think ahead and plan out your attack so that you don’t lose control over the stage. There is no such thing as a “silver bullet” style strategy because what works in one stage may not work in the next one. So make sure to mix up whatever strategy you decide to use from stage to stage or even mix it up as the stage progresses.


modes
play screen
There are various units that can be built from the start of the game but it would not be fair if I left out one of the more robust features within Meridian: Squad 22. The game empowers players to upgrade their strategy by utilizing a tech tree that focuses on the combat, economy, and defense. This tech tree – which can be upgraded as the player sees fit – will give players access to additional units, stronger combat, and a fortified defense that will have a considerable impact on the game as well as add another layer of variety to already solid real-time strategy game.




My time with Meridian: Squad 22 was tough and that is putting it mildly. Since my last experience with a real-time strategy game was a long time ago, keeping track of my units, fortifying my locations, and making sure that my commander wasn’t destroyed proved to be rather difficult. The frustration of getting my butt handed to me at every turn was doused by the game’s terrific gameplay as well as my willingness to overcome the obstacles by allowing me to change the direction and use of the units I had control over. Completing each objective gave me a sense of pride and even shouted at the game as if I was the actual world. Elder Games did a great job of immersing me into Meridian: Squad 22 that I will revisit the game once the additional modes are implemented.

start of campaign 2
start of campaign 3
While each of the locations in Meridian: Squad 22 were similar to other games in the same genre (Halo Wars), they were very detailed. Whether it was a beach, spacecraft, or fortress-like location all of the action suited each mission and flowed together in an impressive manner. My only complaint is that when playing in an indoor environment the action can get intense because of how narrow some of the corridors are.


It is a small issue that can be troublesome for more inexperienced players in the real-time strategy genre. Overall, the feel of each stage provided a sense of wonder and depth that I could not identify with when playing games that aren’t in the same genre. This is a testament to the developer as well as a pattern that I hope will continue to be improved upon in future titles.


The sound in Meridian: Squad 22 was nothing short of amazing. Listening to the tanks move or the enemies fires at me or even the explosions were very immersive. The quality of the sound is surprising and in some cases rivals some of the bigger studios – which is amazing considering that this game was developed by one person. My favorite aspect of the sound was most certainly the music. There was not one song that didn’t fit the engagements that I was involved in during the game. Sometimes I caught myself bobbing my bead to the music because it was so good and catchy. The developer clearly has a knack for this part of the development cycle and it shows.


Steam Acievements i
Steam Acievements ii
Meridian: Squad 22 comes with additional modes such as the game’s conquest mode tasks players with taking over a territory by engaging in a sequence of encounters. Once players are able to take over the required territories there is a path that opens up leading to an endgame mission for everyone’s enjoyment. Personally, I did not try these missions because I found the campaign to be extremely difficult but satisfying. However, I do recommend playing these missions if you want to continue playing after the campaign is over.


Elder Games really did a great job with Meridian: Squad 22. The polished graphics were complimented very nicely by the challenging gameplay and were heightened by an awesome score. The missing modes, while a bummer, did not take away from an otherwise great game. Having been away from the real-time strategy genre for quite some time, this game has done it job providing me some great gaming memories that will make me want to revisit the first title in the series as well as other games in the same category. It really makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside when a developer releases a titles with the core gameplay and additional elements functioning as intended. Whether you are a seasoned real-time strategy player or are new to the genre, Meridian: Squad 22 is a great experience that is worth every moment the game dishes out on the battlefield.

Umm... so now you are 'kind-of' giving away chances to maybe win a giveaway. Maybe I'd better go back to playing the lottery.

......................................Moderator comment...................................................


The team are trying to find other ways of securing games becasue it has become increasingly difficult to find developers who are willing to give away thousands of keys, for example the developer of Nyctophobia gave away over 22 thousand Steam keys this weekend. The team are still giving away games without the limited numbers, just not every weekend simply becasue there are none to give. To fill in the gaps the team found other ways to give away games. It saddens me to see such comments especially when this site has given the community literally millions of commercial games free over the decade they have been operating (well less than 3 months off 10 years). all we seem to get now is jibes and complaints. As I've said several times recently, it's no wonder developers don't want to give. would you give away a game you'd worked on for months or longer only to see no or virtually no positive or at least useful feedback abut the game you gave away, instead reading nothing but complaints. I personally would never give away to such a community. I've tried for years to point out the benefits of posting useful feedback the community. Before the changes were made back in February I always added a paragraph to the end of my review asking the community to post feedback about the game be it positive or negative, but hardy anyone ever bothered. If the community had listened we may have found this a nexus for new and up-coming developers happy to give their games away due to the fantastic feedback (be it positive or negative feedback about the game). Sadly as yet that hasn't happened, becasue no one still heeds my advice.

peer to peer sites allow people to download ripped off games and applications and is basically called theft. If you've downloaded games from such places you too are a thief. It's sites like those that caused the introduction of DRM in the first place because developers were losing millions of dollars every year..............................

Mavadelo, No problem. tbh I am not totally against pirating, I discovered (and bought) some games that I tried out in pirated version before buying as I have a "potato" system when it comes to current games. If the pirate copy runs I buy the game. I don't like it though if these links show up on sites that give us nice things for free legally, it will not be the poster that is in troubles but the site for allowing it if developers disover it and I am sure if a dev gives something away he at least checks the site he does it on

how many keys are "given away"? Here it says 200, front page states 1000!?!

...........................Moderator Comment................................
I'd go with the lower number. The limited key giveaways have never been more than 100 previously, so I think a jump to 1000 is highly unlikely. It's probably a typo. I don't have access to change the page, so cannot edit the mistake out.

Mavadelo,

...........................Moderator Comment................................


I've been getting the 404 for ages if I'm already logged into Facebook; otherwise I just get the log in page. Either way, unless you want to post details of the giveaway to friends, it's not actually necessary. Cancelling the page will still allow you to proceed with the competition entries.




I thought I'd reply this way instead of adding my usual Moderator Comment to the actual comment as I assume you get notifications when someone replies and I wanted you to see this message. My usual moderator comments are posted via the admin panel where there is no facility to reply in the conventional way. (which has been an issue for at least two community members who hate the way I usually comment) I just wanted to let you know I've been really busy with some legal stuff that needs sorting urgently. I received a call from my solicitor on Tuesday morning last week (13th Sept) and have been working to sort out some issues with the compensation claim before the barrister can proceed with court hearings. The legal battle I'm in the middle of fighting needs to be brought to a conclusion soon otherwise I might lose everything as it's been three years since the builder ripped me off (for over £45000, plus I've already spent over £20 000 putting some of this issues right and almost £10000 in legal fees). . .... It has to be done within a certain time frame which I've been told by my solicitor is getting close. I will get back to the task (reviews) in hand soon. I've not been totally idle as I have been preparing some reviews for posting. Will talk as soon as I'm able; really sorry I've not messaged you this week, I was too preoccupied with it all to think straight. Been a trying few months for various reasons, some of which I've already mentioned previously. Later........

I just wanted to make a comment on the "new" giveaway process. At first I was taken aback by the "hurry up and win one of # licenses", but then I found myself actually reading whiterabbits review of the games that might interest me. Since I already have Steam and Indie, I also looked at the price posted. I feel that if the game looked like something I wanted, I would just buy it. (I am on a fixed income and know the game will always be there to purchase.)
I do not got to Steam or Indie looking at available games, so this actually makes me see what they do have available. I look at this as more of 'advertising', in MY case. I won't go through the hoops to win a license, I'll just buy it if I like it and can afford it. So, no issue there for me.

On the My Play City games, I don't mind a browser popping up afterwards. If I didn't want that, I would buy the game. I get a lot of games (free) from GameTop, so I'm used to it. I think it only fair that if I'm going to play a game for free, it is not really that big of a deal to close my browser window after it pops up. That's better than being bombarded with ads IN the game itself. Heck, I usually end up looking at the new games when it's opened!

I, like you all, do miss the free, full featured, ad free games that were given away, but in reality, NOTHING is free. Someone else pays for it in the end. It was a great way of marketing, but apparently it didn't work for the developers.

Keep up the good work Stephen and GGAOTD, and thank you to the developers of the games for giving out some licenses.
Respectfully, Mary

...........................Moderator Comment................................
Hi Mary, I spent a good 30 minutes replying to your comment last night only for the site to time out, so when I clicked on save, it defaulted to the site before signing it, without saving all I'd said. It was late and I needed to go to bed, so left any reply until this morning. The gist of what I wrote was basically a thank you for your comment and how I agreed with it. I went on to explain how I tend to buy most of the games given away here becasue I'm big into supporting game developers. Gaming has become a way of life for me because it helps significantly with in my pain management. Thankfully I'm lucky because I have enough disposable income to be able to buy whatever game I want (which sometimes is way to excessive, for example, since last week I've purchased almost 100 games {99 to be exact}, several of which are pre-orders for games such as Mafia III or other AAA releases. I never count up how much I've spent otherwise I'd be horrified, lol.

P>S to the GOTD team, since many people will not bother to click the homepage link it might be a good idea to mention the key is to be used on Steam. Seeing the amount of Steam "dislikers" on here I think that it is kinda vital info :)

It's Friday and we have a tombola... yay :D and I don't mean that sarcastic either. It has been a long time since GGOTD offered games outside the weekend. So it is a tombola... who bleeping cares. It is a giveaway site, nowhere is it said that if a dev wants to giveaway something he should have to give it away to everyone, if they decide we give away 200 licenses we should say ty for the chance to obtain one. The giveaway team then has to options. Give them away on first come first serve basis which will cause a (imo) justified uproar because licenses would go always to early bird europeans (as the change time here is between 9am and say 11 am depending on timezone) or late Americans but those from other regions basically would not stand a chance. I assure you the keys would go to the same group of say 300 or 400 visitors. Or they can do a tombola, you perform a few simple tasks and have a chance to get a key regardless of your location

It is super simple to create a FB account and a Twitter account specific for these knd of internet contests. Nowhere is it stated you have to share this on any form of account where you are public or where people actually know who you are or who is behind that account. You creaae it and you use it for these contests, you don't even ever have to check the darn thing, you never want to visit FB or Twitter again you don't have to, you have no followers there is no problem it is just a "bypass account"

Only the Sun rises for absolutely nothing, everything else, including the air we breath, comes at a price, stop whining and appreciate fro once that despite the economic state most countries are currently in, GOTD and GGOTD still manage to give us nice things.

For that I agree with the comment of the day by the mod "sorry to see you go, bye" and I would like to add "Don't let the door....."

For the rest of the readers, As you might know I am i the process of making a review site for our resident reviewer WhiteRabit-UK, We are making good progress and the forums are now live. We would like your input on how you would like to see the site to develop since we want this to become a community site where people can express themselves and can have a good time.

For the forums is a (free) account needed if you want to comment and provide input, this login will be valid for the entire site meaning once WhiteRabbit has fninshed a review and posted this, you can respond to the review at the review page (this will be moderated) as well.

The site an be reached using either and

Hope to see you all there

pattyladd,

You have the game "giveaways" that is either steam or mpc. Both of those are not good to download. The software side has "giveaways" that has turned to nothing more than 6 month software tryouts, A waste of time in most cases. Then when you express an opinion the comment is either censored or simply deleted. The sites want to give the impression that all is great and everyone is happy. That is not the case. I am not negative just for the sake of being negative. But I want to raise some valid issues so people understand why some are complaining.

Wrong place to post this gpc, the only comments that get deleted by me are inappropriate comments; usually only the part that is inappropriate is deleted and I always leave a message saying why it's been deleted. It's very rare that a comment is deleted in it's entirity. I don't moderate the applications side of the giveaway project, though I recently discovered that if I'm signed into the game giveaway admin panel, it does allow me to moderate the applications side; but I don't deem myself qualified to moderate that side of the project because I'm not interested in or know little about how applications work.


Just a thought about negative comments. If you were a developer considering giving away an application or game, then saw the comments usually posted on the giveaway site, would you really want to give thousands of copies of your program away? Personally I doubt I would. Considering we are getting free applications and games, I still don't understand much of the negativity that has arisen over the last few years. Posting a useful comment about an application be it negative or positive is what these pages are supposed to be for, but more often than not we get whinging about what is on offer, or the method in which it's offered and not about the actual application or game. It does say in the giveaway rules that you are supposed to comment about the software. How often do you see that happening?

Never seen a game giveaway that is giving away 200 licenses :) I wish that there were more of those and not the 10 or so license that I seen at late.

Hi Daniel, unfortunately, it's getting increasingly difficult to get free games via the methods employed here. Developers are looking to make money. They can make a lot more by adding their games to one of the many indie bundles available at any one time *around 60 are current) or via one of the free game sites that add adware and redirect your browser to their site. if the developers game is decent and popular they can make a lot of money due to the income they earn every time you play a game from places like MyPlayCity.
