A dark fairytale of intrigue and mystery, where the sins of the past must be paid for So sets the stage for The Dark Meadow -- a visually stunning world of deep exploration, gripping story, and heart racing combat, created with the unrivaled power of the Unreal Engine 3.

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 the living. It is only when the witch is destroyed that you will be released from this unrelenting torment.

Using fun and intuitive fully gesture-based controls, you explore the decaying ruins of Montclair Hospital, armed with your crossbow for long-range combat as well as your sword for up close and personal melee battles.

The best elements from role-playing games encourage 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 weapons and items, to money which can be used to purchase better equipment and weapons.

- Visually stunning, photo-realistic world built with the Unreal 3 engine

- A mature plot, stylized as a dark modern fairytale with bizarre twists and turns;

- In-world storytelling and quality acting

- Gesture-based action: crossbow ranged combat with pull back and fire mechanic, slashing melee combat with dodging, blocking, and combos;

- Available in English, French, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean , Italian, Simplified Chinese, Russian, and Brazilian Portuguese languages.

Ohkay. I just deleted Shadowgun, Dead Space and a bunch of other games to make space. This had better be good...

Edit: Jeebus, it took 2GB of free space before the damn thing would download. Ouch. My game library will never be the same.

Imho you should keep it private at least until after the US release. People can't help it but watch and a game like this - I think spoilers would be very unwelcome.


Edit: early impressions: holy hell, this game is amazing. The graphics, the combat, whoa. Awesome.

It plays kinda like a cross between Infinity Blade and a point-and-click game, but whether that sounds appealing to you or not it is executed magnificently. Oh, everything (so far) has been voice acted. Ultra awesome.


This is going to rub people the wrong way: there are coins in game used to purchase weapons and amulets. What do coins bring? You guessed it, IAPs!
They're quite hefty too, with the largest pack (6 mil coins) costing NZ$64.

That said, I'm 5 minutes into the game and already have ~500 coins. If this game does deliver on a 6 hour playthrough I don't see ever needing the coins.
