The Dark Meadow – Phosphor Games Sheds Some Light on the Game


As the release of the game draws closer, Phosphor Games has launched the Official Website, released a teaser trailer, and some screenshots to tempt you into buying what appears to be a frightfully good game. Developed utilizing the acclaimed Unreal Engine 3, The Dark Meadow is a stunning first-person, action/adventure game where players fight to escape a nightmare world filled with fantastical creatures bent on destroying them. The game will be available for all iOS devices from 3GS to iPad 2.

About Dark Meadow:

The Dark Meadow is a visually charged, combat intense world of exploration. You awake in a hospital uncertain of how you arrived there or why. An old man warns of a beautiful witch whose minions roam the halls seeking to kill the living. It is only when the witch is destroyed that you will be released from this unrelenting torment.

As you explore the photo-realistic world, you will need both your crossbow for ranged combat as well as your sword for in close, melee combat. Gesture-based “pull back and fire” as well as slashing combat will be instantly recognizable to iOS players, and node-based movement through the world makes navigation simple yet compelling.

Role-playing game mechanics enhance the exploration, as a wide variety of items are secreted throughout the world – from hidden scraps of paper that reveal the mystery of your imprisonment, to money which can be used to purchase better equipment and weapons.

The Dark Meadow is hitting the App Store this month and will be available in English, French, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean and Italian. An exact date and price will be announced shortly.

    An interesting concept. I love the amount of attention the iPhone and iPad have been getting with games. It’s great that some PSP games (like the FINAL FANTASY ones) have been ported over, and even some of the older PC titles like Myst and The Seventh Guest. And, of course, there are originals like Chaos Rings that are great.

    It’s nice to see a survival horror styled game, and I will certainly look forward to it. Any idea of a release date?
