Dark Meadow: The Pact is a first-person adventure of intrigue and mystery

You wake up in a hospital with no clues about how or why you did get there. Soon you'll discover that you aren't alone. The people who are also locked up there, like you, have been brought there to pay for the sins of the past.

Dozens of different creatures will show up to impede you keep going. All those creatures are ruled by a beautiful witch who's feeding herself with the living. You'll have to destroy her to be able to leave the old enchanted hospital.

Gameplay reminds other classic successful titles like Silent Hill and F.E.A.R. First-person view, you have to interact with objects and NPC by gesture-based controls. Open doors and drawers, grab items, weapons, shoot, dodge and read every signal. The game is visually stunning thanks to Unreal Engine 3 and Tegra 3 optimization. One of the highest quality plot and storytelling I've witnessed on a mobile game. Voice cuts and dialogues, as well as environmental music help you to get caught by the history from the first moment. It supports multiple languages.

Dark Meadow is something new, original, unexpected. Mobile gaming can be something else than platformers, puzzle and arcades. If you don't believe me, try this out and be ready to be horrified.

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.
