With Infinity Blade having proven that iOS games don't have to be all
about social media integration or scaled-down knockoffs of real titles, Apple
fans have been waiting for the next big platform-proving hit. Enter the new
trailer for Phosphor Games Unreal Engine 3 powered adventure, The Dark Meadow.
It’s packing a smidge of Silent Hill, a taste of FEAR, and just enough
indie-flavored ambiguity to keep you on your toes. Check it out.
The Dark Meadow – which
hits the App Store Oct 6 – uses the Unreal 3 Engine and what appears to be an Infinity
Blade-influenced control system to propel players through a twisted take on
folklore and fairytale. The game's developers are veterans of console
development since the mid-90s – project head Chip Sineni's resume spans
everything from Nickelodeon games for the SNES to John Woo's Stranglehold – but
this is the studio's first stab at establishing its very own IP. Further
glimpses are available at the game's website: are you looking forward to exploring deeper?
