Space Trader and Tank Universal bag gongs for Meridian4.

Montreal, Quebec, Canada – December 16, 2008 – Meridian4 ( is thrilled to announce that has awarded two of our titles prestigious Game of the Year awards. Space Trader from Hermitworks and Tank Universal from Dialogue Design have won Indie Game of the Year.

“Each of these titles brought something new, unique to their genres and best of all solid fun gameplay. Every PC gamer needs to check out these games for them selves and they will find a hidden gem.” said GameFocus.

Space Trader also won the dubious award of Best Game No One Played, but we hope that will change once people see what an independent developer can produce with lower budgets and a lot of passion.

“We love Space Trader at GameFocus for many reasons including the fact it is a unique indie game that is simply fun and challenging to play. Relying more on gameplay then flashy graphics Space Trader is still on our game machines and played to this day.” said GameFocus.
