The digital distribution service TotalGaming.net will now be hosting some of Meridian4's products.  You can preorder Alpha Prime, Shadowgrounds Survivor and The Chosen: Well of Souls from the TotalGaming website.  I'm glad to see more third party companies get into digital distribution, as I've always had a love-hate relationship with Steam and Valve's monopoly over that area is getting old.  When Id is hosting some of their best games on Valve's service, it's like Microsoft putting Halo on the Wii Virtual Console.


TotalGaming.net Continues to Grow with Wide Range of Games from Meridian4

The Chosen: Well of Souls, Shadowgrounds Survivor and Alpha Prime Available for Pre-Order at the World’s Most User-Friendly Digital Distribution Site

 

PLYMOUTH, Michigan – September 14, 2007 – Stardock Entertainment and Meridian4 today announced that the companies have signed an agreement to bring a number of Meridian4’s titles to TotalGaming.net, the world’s most user-friendly digital distribution site.
