Meridian4 is pleased to announce the signing of a second title with Polish developer Rebelmind, for their children's adventure game; Great Journey: Mr. Penguin's Letter.

"We can finally pass great news to all of the gamers who have been asking us if and when Great Journey would be published in North America. We believe that GJ will engage younger and older gamers. Even though it was developed with younger gamers in mind many adults may find it hard to walk away from this virtual adventure." said Agnieszka Krawczyk, Sales Director at Rebelmind, "GJ will become available soon to American gamers thanks to our publisher - Meridian4."

"Meridian4 is excited to be publishing this beautifully stunning game in North America. The game's graphics have been compared to the likes of ShrekTM and Toy StoryTM and has been called the future of children's adventure games." said Andrew Sher, CEO at Meridian4, "Great Journey is a near masterpiece in family oriented adventure games."
