A new game listing hit the Tegra Zone earlier today, introducing The Dark Meadow – a sophisticated entry into the first person action/adventure genre, built on Unreal Engine 3 and optimized for your Tegra device.

Update 12/14/11: Official Android teaser:

Here's a trailer from the iOS version:

With The Dark Meadow, Phosphor Games Studio submerges players in a "dark fairytale world filled with fantastical creatures bent on destroying them." Certainly, dark is a bit of an understatement – the environments and characters look downright disturbing. Just take a look at some of the beauties below:

Unfortunately, The Dark Meadow won't be available till Q1 2012. In the meantime, you can check out The Dark Meadow's page on NVIDIA's Tegra Zone for more screenshots and information.

    Look interesting. Hopefully it'll play nice with Tegra 2 and not just Tegra 3.

      Think it should, it doesn't say Tegra 3 anywhere as of right now.

    Not to sound too harsh, but a really well done teaser video combined with pretty well done voice acting is a good sign that gameplay is as bad or worse than it looks in the video. It's not entirely clear what the control style is, but there wasn't much in the way of onscreen controls which hints at either a choose-your-own-adventure where they just haven't shown us the menus in the preview or it may be a rail-based shooter/slasher kinda thing like a House of the Dead meets Infinity Blade. It's certainly pretty, probably going to be a 3 gig data download for 4-5 hours of gameplay. Like I said, I'm probably being too harsh, but it feels like it's one of those games that's less about playing it and more about showing off to your friends that you can have games on a tablet that look really good.

      I've played the game on my iPod Touch and it's actually really good. It's sort of like a horror 3D point-and-click game with Infinity Blade fighting segments, set in an abandoned hospital. It's a unique game, for sure, and I'm looking forward to playing it on my non-Tegra 2 phone through Chainfire 3D.

    I see this as a big 1up for Android gaming even if it is Tegra-exclusive...
