Single-player real-time strategy Meridian: New World has just received a debut trailer. It's an RTS with player decisions affecting the campaign as it progresses, and it's made by just a lone indie developer; Ede Tarsoly.
It shares some similarities with StarCraft II where players can 'chat' with their troops, and also equip them for the fights ahead. Tarsoly hasn't shown off much of the consequence of decisions yet.
Elder Games is the name of Tarsoly's little one man band. This debut trailer even has a quick jab at StarCraft before showing off its impressive looking RTS chops.
A fresh sci-fi RTS franchise? Yes please. Sadly the trailer doesn't include any story or interactions with your crew, but does tease some very good looking battles and a quick glimpse at unit load-outs.
