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


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


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


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.
