The Dark Meadow Developers Make Creepy Comparison
Apparently, video game art imitates life.
Pick up a random issue of Weird New Jersey, and you'll likely see a spread featuring an abandoned mental hospital.
What's especially creepy about these places (aside from the obvious), are the records and equipment left behind, almost as if the employees and patients suddenly vanished.
Phosphor Games, the developer behind the atmospheric iPhone and iPad release, The Dark Meadow, stumbled upon some pictures from one of these hospitals located in Staten Island, NY, and made the surprise connection.
Turns out, their game and this place have a lot in common.
Said Phosphor Games, "Pic from Sea View Hospital, a place we discovered after we designed the hospital. Eerie! We should take Jeffery the voice actor here and have him talk over walkie talkies."
Sounds like a great idea. Just watch out for monsters, and witches...and crazy homeless people.
