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's New in Version 1.1
- Memory optimization for iPad 1st Gen and iPod touch 4th Gen
- Minor bug fixes
Just the right combination of mysterious, engaging and disturbing - the game invites you a long-lost corner the Swedish countryside using simple but highly effective and evocative illustration. It's moody but also hopeful and contemplative. The companion guide is a necessity for completing the game - an integral part of it, in fact.
I was left wanting more. If more chapters are made, or more folk-lore explored, I'm buying. (Looking forward to DEVICE 6 when it comes out to see if YW was a fluke or not).
Unsettling but brilliant little game which really REALLY had me thinking. No clues here, but perseverance and loads of reading the Companion book finally got me on the right track. Worth the money; it took me days to finish and then days more to crack the last cunning puzzle. Quite creepy and sad at times , but in a good way.
Best mobile game
I don't write many reviews but this game is an exception it blew my mind it's captivating and pulls u In from point one with interesting plot great research and it's not an easy puzzle game be prepared for a hell of a time and the TRUE ending of the game is great took me a bit to find great job 👍
