In the old days man tried to catch a glimpse of the future in the strangest of ways.
Experience the ancient Swedish phenomena of year walking through a different kind of first person adventure that blurs the line between two and three dimensions as well as reality and the supernatural.
Venture out into the dark woods where strange creatures roam, on a vision quest set in 19th century Sweden. Solve cryptic puzzles, touch and listen in your search to foresee the future and finally discover if your loved one will love you back.
Mysteries and clues await everywhere in Year Walk, but to fully understand the events that took place on that cold New Year's Eve, you will have to delve deeper than the adventure and lose yourself between fact and fiction.
For the complete Year Walk experience, or if you're curious about the folk lore on which Year Walk is based, we recommend downloading Year Walk Companion, available for free on the App Store.
"An iOS game like nothing else you’ve seen on the format to date.
This is a brave and truly original work"
Edge - 9/10
"Elegant and artful, Year Walk is an unmissable piece of work.
You can close the app and put down the phone, but the forest may spread beyond its glassy confines, its spindly, silver-skinned trees taking root in your own home, your own dreams."
Eurogamer - 9/10
"A game this distinctive, this different, this thrillingly new is the best possible demonstration of the format’s versatility; indeed, of the narrative power of the interactive medium. Simogo has made something very special here."
The Telegraph - 5/5
"It's a gripping, somber, atmospheric, and elegantly-designed game, and everyone should play it.
I've never played anything quite like it."
Touch Arcade 5/5
"An incredible showcase for the potential of tablet games and will undoubtedly become influential over the next few years."
CVG - 9/10
"Simogo has packed Year Walk with a hefty share of spine-tingling jump scares, but it’s these external trappings that cause the game’s lore to get under your skin and stick with you long after your phone or tablet has been turned off."
Gamezebo - 4,5/5
"Year Walk is smart, thrilling, and absolutely stunningly crafted. It'll throw you for a loop, leaving you transfixed to the screen until you shake out all of its dark secrets."
Mac|Life - 5/5
"As with any good page-turner, you won't want to put this game down until you get to the end. It's quite a journey, too. Year Walk is a beguiling adventure, and a truly memorable experience."
Pocketgamer - 8/10

What the title suggests. When I first played the game I thought the artwork and graphics were a very creative choice and it set the mood for the story. At first I didn't know how to move around and I lost myself sooner or later but I guess that's just me and my forgetfulness. The story line was different from most games I have played and fit the story well. After a while I realised that there are hints and clues all around me and I thought that was perfect and new. It gave me that feeling that most people get when they figure a solution to an annoying problem or something to that affect. There were twists and turns in the game and when it ended I didn't expect that there was another game you have to download and it just added to the experience. The ending was unexpected and made me think for a long time what he actually did in the end. I hope Simogo creates more games like this with the same experience.
One of the best games I have ever played for iPad, it is a beautiful game with great puzzles and music. The backstory is amazing and the fact that the developers tied the game in with the companion was genius, and the hint of horror was not to scary to make you want to stop playing but kept you with a high heart rate. I can't explain how much I loved this game and how I could play it more than once. I definitely recommend it!
Read the entire companion app and find the real ending by unlocking the box. No walkthroughs.
This game is the best app on the App Store, I love the fact that to get the real end you actually have to study and search the companion app, the story evolves and you begin to understand how it all fits together.
Ignore all the complaints about how long the game is or that weird one about it being on a floppy disk. This game is brilliant.
