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

Takes up way more storage then it says it does
This was a fun game, although way too short for the price. But my problem with it is that it says on the App Store it only takes a little over 200 mb, but it actually takes over 800 on my iPad! Saying it takes less memory then it does should not be allowed on the App Store, as I would not have bought the app if I knew it took that much memory! Grrr I wish I had not bought this app, because I am deleting it anyway because it takes so much memory. If you want a good adventure game with amazing graphics and are willing to pay for it, get a better app like machinarium or tiny bang story or the room or something, now those are fun games that don't take a ridiculous amount of memory!
No hand holding. Easy to get lost. "Clues" are almost as opaque as the puzzles themselves. Not much to do other than swipe to and fro. And yet it perfectly captures a sense of bewilderment and confusion, of dread, loss, and mourning. The supernatural spirits are not evil, but melancholy, lonely, and as lost as the humans. There is a sense of deep misery conveyed. I love this game! So, so bizarre. Thank you to the developers.
Playing on iPhone 5 with earphones on high volume (iPhone 5 earphones are amazing quality).
Oh boy! I walked and walked and kept walking... Until O.o !!!
Would have given 5 stars if it wasn't so short for a game. Extra game companion is a must.
One more thing, turn of the lights, your tv and radio or any other distractions. Sit back and get ready for some walking...
