Okay, so maybe you didn't win a Prime in any of our other giveaways. Well, guess what? Here's another chance!

So, what's the occasion? Only the release of one of the best games ever come to Android: The Dark Meadow: The Pact. I'm completely obsessed with this game right now - it's incredible. Don't believe me? Check out my review.

Since NVIDIA and Phosphor Games (the creator of The Dark Meadow) are just as excited about this game as we are, they decided to give us a Prime and dock to give away to one lucky reader, along with a $25 AMEX gift card to go towards purchases in the Play Store (like more gold or sun coins for TDM).

This contest is now over. Here is our winner, selected at random:
  • Johnnyone56 from Amsterdam - his email bounced, moving on to the next guy
  • Jeff Packard from Kansas

Congratulations - you will be contacted for your information in the near future!

Everyone else - keep participating and stay tuned to Android Police so that you don't miss our upcoming giveaway announcements. You can follow AP on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and RSS.


Phosphor Games and The Dark Meadow

Phosphor_LOGOh

So, what's this Dark Meadow thing I keep babbling about? It's an ultra-creepy action horror game from Phosphor Games that just landed in the Play Store today. Here's the gist of it: you wake up in an abandoned, dilapidated hospital with no idea of how you got there.

What's more, is that this particular hospital seems to a breeding ground to some pretty terrifying... things. Armed only with a crossbow and a shiv of sorts, you have make your way through this terrifying endeavor to figure out how to get out.

The Tegra Zone

POWEREDBYNVIDIATEGRA_R_2D_BK

Thanks to NVIDIA's quad-core Tegra 3 '4-plus-1' superchip (four regular cores, one battery-saving ninja core), Phosphor was able to add textures and elements into The Dark Meadow that aren't available in other versions of the game (*cough* iOS *cough*), and it looks fantastic.

Since Tegra-optimized games often offer a better experience over their non-Tegra siblings, NVIDIA put together a nice way to find them all in one place: enter the Tegra Zone.

The Tegra Zone is a site and companion app that makes it easy to find Tegra-optimized games and apps for your device. This is where you'll find The Dark Meadow, along with other favorites like Shadowgun THD and Siegecraft THD.  Make no mistake, though - this isn't another appstore, simply a place to find awesome Tegra-optimized content.

What You Get

209606-asus-eee-pad-transformer-prime

I see you there, reading this section - like you don't already know what you get if you win. I mean, honestly, if you didn't see it in the title of the post, would you have clicked? I didn't think so.

It's okay, though - I'll humor you: if you win, you get a 32GB Amethyst Gray ASUS Transformer Prime with dock and a $25 pre-paid AMEX card for use in the Play Store (act surprised or it ruins the fun)!

I'm sure you already have the Prime's specs memorizes, but just in case you don't, here they are:

  • 10.1-inch 1280x800 Super IPS display
  • Quad-core Tegra 3 4-plus-1 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 32GB built-in storage
  • 8MP rear shooter, 1.2MP front camera
  • Android 4.0

And of course, let's not forget about the dock. It basically turns the tablet into an Android-powered netbook and gives it some extra juice.

How to Win

DarkMeadow-550x316

Did you watch the video up there? If not, then go do that now. If you did, good for you. Keep reading.

To enter, simply drop us a line in the comments telling us what from the teaser video makes you the most excited for The Dark Meadow. That's it!

The contest begins immediately and will run until Tuesday, May 1st at 11:59 PM PST, after which the winner will be chosen at random and notified soon thereafter.

This contest is available globally.

Good luck!

  • Daniel Yeun

    Good to see such game in Android.

  • Kiroshiro

    The best part is that the guy should have lied to the main character just so that he would be able to survive and that it tempts you into the world of The Dark Meadow.

    Not to mention, who doesn't loved to be scared out of their wits a la Dead Space.

  • Pablings

    The most exiting thing in The Dark Meadow teaser video is that it really shows what the 
    NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip is capable of. The graphics is amazing and the game runs smoothly. 
     Dark Meadow will definitely give a completly new gaming experience. The darkness in between the scenes to increase the horror creates a lot of tension, and it is definitely worth a try.     
    The Tegra chip has some real power, and maybe in a few years it will be able to defeat other high quality consoles.

  • Executioner

    its like amnesia, wihch makes me very curious, i'd like to see this 

  • Franc

    Seriously, I got excited with the game after seeing the trailer, especially on how the game's narrative will turn out. I mean it's a sort of supernatural zombie game, and anything zombie excites my G-spot, with the gamer having the "narrator" as a partner. Now that may seem dull, until you realize that you don't know anything about your partner. And I think it's one of the great aspects of this game, that you are practically alone in that world, and then the only living creature you have access to has unknown and (which might-be) questionable motives. I think it's a #win! :D

  • adamryb

    That was pretty awesome. I'm most excited for the dark overtones of this game, looks like it will be an awesome game to play in the dark before bedtime!

    What I like best about this game? Plenty of things. It's amazing how far gaming has come on the mobile platform. Look at them graphics, 3-4 years ago that would of been considered witchcraft! Also, it's a FPS horror. It's taken up a nice niche of the gaming market as there isn't many games on not just a good gameplay level but also on a beautiful graphics level. Harnessing all 4 of those tegra cores! (That thing has more cores than my damn desktop! Haha!)

  • Migs Calleja

    "I probably should've lied to you, shouldn't I?"

    I liked the narration most. Plus the look and feel of the game. Reminds me of the old Unreal days... :)

  • Waimee
