Phosphor Game Studios has the official site up and running for their new iOS horror game, The Dark Meadow. They also have a teaser trailer up and man does it look creepy--one of the few horror trailers that's actually cut and composed very well. Foreboding narration? A dilapidated hospital? Shades of Silent Hill? I'm getting shivers down my spine already. Too bad this isn't coming to PSN and XBLA.
About The 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.
