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 and decipher cryptic puzzles, listen for clues, and learn about mysterious folklore creatures in the built-in encyclopedia as you seek to foresee your future and find out if your loved one will ever 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.
This edition of Year Walk features several new additions:
• New locations within the game
• Updated art
• New puzzles
• Integrated Encyclopedia about the mysterious myths and creatures encountered in the game
• Hint system
... and more!
Year Walk is the best game I have ever played.
Some reviews on this page have complaints of it being too short but if you play the game ENTIRELY and correctly, it is very time consuming and enjoyable. The cost is definetly worth the experience. The overall art, setting, and quality of the game is excellent. Year Walk has a weird but positively unique set up which can be hard to control at first but it’s easy to get used to. The the best part of Year Walk is the plot. The game has tons of Back story to explain what is happening in the story without any dialogue. Playing the ENTIRE game has an amazing plot twist and I definitely recommend playing untill the FINAL credits roll. Just buy it. It’s worth it.
I am not usually one for horror themes, as I am quite skittish, but I couldn’t resist the tempation to play through this game. The side-scrolling took a minute to get used to, but the map proves very useful in helping gauge your surroundings. The music was delightfully creepy, and the simple storyline was compelling enough. I really enjoyed the encyclopedia’s historical facts. However! It was a very short game. I suppose it was cheap enough to where it isn’t upsetting, but still, quite short. That would have to be my only real complaint. Otherwise the game itself is beautifully done, and significantly creepy.

I seldom write reviews on paid games, mostly because they disappoint me, and I just want them to be better.
But Year Walk is an incredibly intriguing game. It’s such a beautiful, dark entangle; its story is so mysterious and its graphics are exceptional. Any other environment would have made me extremely sick with the controls being what they are...but there’s a strange magic that happens with this game.
I recommend it to anyone who’s a wee bit disturbed in the mind, this will be a dark & twisty treat.
