Today’s Dark Meadow [$5.99] update smells like damage control, but that’s not a bad thing for the folks expecting the premium title to stay premium. With the latest update, all the costs of weapons and amulets have been converted back into gold from Sun Coins, robbing the incentive to buy the weapons with real-world currency. Also, creator Phosphor Games has tweaked loot drops to “be more generous" and has tooled around with health drops. As explained on our message board, this is a permanent shift for the app.
Back in March, Phosphor caught wind that free-to-play was The New Thing and planned to update its offering with F2P mechanics. Fans weren’t pleased, and so Phosphor decided to release a free version of the game instead. Oddly, it then decided to stick all of those elements into the paid one anyway, which didn’t make people happy, either. But, hey, now the app is basically back to normal. Neat!
