App description: VISUALLY STUNNING, ENGROSSING STORYTELLING GAME ON YOUR MOBILE DEVICE! UPDATED WITH NEW CONTENT!

*Nominated for Mobile game of the Year by the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences.

* IGN: "worth playing just to experience the games huge amount of eccentric dialogue, and to experience the unfolding mystery.... one of the best to hit the App Store in recent memory."

* KOTAKU: "at home in the halls of BioShock's Rapture...disturbingly gorgeous experience."

* DESTRUCTOID: "a very atmospheric and engrossing game with a delicious streak of dark humor coursing through its veins.. worth picking up for anybody with an interest in iOS gaming."

* JOYSTIQ: "It's a surprisingly funny, gorgeous game that's an easy recommendation... ram home the truth that mobile games are getting surprisingly good at creating big worlds on tiny screens."

* TOUCH ARCADE: "The Dark Meadow is a standout in almost every way. From look to setting to the touch-centric gameplay, it shines, and you can tell this title was crafted with much love "

* GIZMODO.UK: "a splendid achievement. The bar has been raised, the gauntlet has been thrown down, and the hyperbole has been exhausted. We cant wait to see the next game that tries to go one better."

* MODOJO: "a cross between BioShock and Infinity Blade... a hauntingly beautiful and intriguing game everyone should play, as it offers both a compelling adventure and a glimpse into the future of smart phone gaming. "

* GAMEZEBO: "arguably the best title to come to the genre. It's gorgeous, it's creepy, and it's a blast to play. This is the perfect game to play during the Halloween season. "


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.

Thank you, that is all I could ask for from you guys.

I hope the new business model works out for you, I really enjoyed the game and it deserves to do well.

Actually, I take it back, I wish the old business model HAD worked well, so you wouldn't have to do this, but you know what I mean.

Thanks for listening to the feedback!

Hey all - thank you for being patient! This took longer because we wanted to add perfect 1x1 iPad Retina support.

The Free To Play version is up in New Zealand and trickling to other regions.

The Premium version is stuck 'In Review' at Apple. We have no idea why it is taking longer as both versions were submitted at same time. As soon as it is cleared we will make that version available.
