IN THE DESERT, NO ONE CAN HEAR THEM SCREAM . . . EXCEPT THE ‘WASTELAND ANGEL’ 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Montreal, Quebec, Canada – September 1, 2011 – Borrowing a page from the playbook of classic arcade shooters, Meridian4 today announced that Wasteland Angel for PC has been unleashed and is available via digital download on Steam and other top distribution portals.  Published by Meridian4 and developed by Octane Games, Wasteland Angel tells the story of our eponymous heroine as she embarks on a mission to defend the helpless in the aftermath of a nuclear holocaust. 

“Much like the Honey Badger, Wasteland Angel is also ‘pretty badass’,” said Steve Milburn, Marketing Director of Meridian4.  “The game combines twitch-action gameplay with arcade style boss battle strategy to deliver a classic gaming experience for today’s players.”

Wasteland Angel takes place after World War III, a cataclysm of destruction so complete that those who survived were considered the unlucky ones.  Now, those who inhabit the dying and lawless planet live in constant fear of being murdered or enslaved by violent gangs, renegade military units and the most horrific mutants ever to stagger out of a nuclear fallout zone.

Out amongst the gangs and mutants roams our heroine, the Wasteland Angel, who cruises the radioactive deserts in her weaponized muscle car, eliminating those who prey upon the weak.  From a top-down isometric view, players pilot the Wasteland Angel’s turbo-charged vehicle as its dual machine guns stitch a line of death across the terrain.  Armed with an endless supply of metal-rending ammo and a deep desire to expend it on those who prey on the weak, Wasteland Angel has upgradeable ammo that can rip enemies from this life and toss them into the next.

Wasteland Angel for PC will be available today on Steam, Impulse, GamersGate, D2D and Amazon Download with a special, one-week introductory discount of 20% off its $9.99 price and is automatically applied across all download sites.  Additional content will be available for download soon after launch.  For more information on Wasteland Angel, please visit http://www.wastelandangel.com/.
