À propos du jeu

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
• Map
• Updated art
• New puzzles
• Integrated Encyclopedia about the mysterious myths and creatures encountered in the game
• Hint system
• Steam Achievement Puzzles
... and more!

Un jeu différent, énigme et sensibilité nordique au rendez-vous. Avec évidemment un cachet artistique prononcé. Une mention spéciale pour l'aspect... horreur qui m'a fait frissonner.
Un jeu à parcourir plusieurs fois pour voir tout ce qu'il a à offrir.
C'est une jolie surprise qui rappelle un tout petit peu Knock Knock, j'aime. En plus une petite encyclopédie est présente et détaille les légendes et personnages en présences.

J'ai des avis plutôt partager sur ce jeu, néanmoins je le recommande
L'univers est magique, on se plonge rapidement dedans, les personnages que l'on peut rencontrer donne souvent des frissons, c'est un jeu à la fois culturelle, ou on apprends beaucoup de choses concernant les légendes etc. Niveau design, c'est beau, un style bien propre au jeu et a son univers, que je trouve relativement marquant et jolie.
En revanche, il me semble que la durée du jeu n'est pas très longue, que parfois certaines énigmes sont relativement difficile à comprendre.

Mais je recommande ce joli petit jeu, qui, soldé coûte environ 3 euros, un petit prix pour un joli petit chef d'oeuvre :)

I just find it boring as hell

I thought it was some kind of poetic game.

It's just a series of landslides with items you can't interact with on the way.

You enter buildings with things, but nothing to do

You just ask yourself : "what am i doing here and what could i do ?"

I encountered a girl who askled me to get home. I went home and had to write "year walk" with objects, just in case i was not aware of the nihil est thing i was playing.

If you press on the journal key, a box asks you for a user name and a password. it did not accept my usual name and password.

You must open the map each 3 seconds to know where to go to.

Some will call it awesome because it is different. To me it's different...from an interesting game.

The guys who did that surely think they are the Marguerite Duras of video games.

Sympathique mais vite oublié sitôt terminé.

Il y a de bonnes idées, c'est plutôt joli, les énigmes se tiennent.
Mais le tout reste beaucoup trop court (même en faisant tout ;) ) et pas vraiment marquant.

Bon ça coute pas cher, mais c'est quand même limité et au final assez plat.

What a surreal experience.

Year Walk can essentially be described as a classic adventure game played in first peson. You move around the forest as you go on your 'Year Walk' and slowly piece together the puzzles and obscure story. It won the iOS GOTY award last year from many publications and I can easily see why it deserves the accolades.

Year Walk is heavily based on Finnish Swedish folklore and has an amazing art style. You will run into all kinds of creepy demons throughout your adventure. The game does have a few jump scares, but, overall, is more unsettling than scary.
I would mention that I found the atmosphere quite breathtaking. The mood is set by the oppressive musical backdrop that never distracts as you crunch your way through the snow of the forest.

The puzzles are where I really dove into the game. I assembled a full piece of paper covered with drawings, notes, and clues over the course of my travels. There is an in-game map, encyclopedia, and hint system to help you through the game and learn about the Swedish background.

The game is quite short, your first play through should take you about forty five minutes to an hour and a half depending on how quickly things click for you. Multiple play through are encouraged and, in fact, half of the story and the true ending are hidden away in subsequent play. The method of unlocking that ending and reading through the story is quite the ride.

It is unfortunate as the game has been looked over on Steam entirely. Possibly due to the stream of trash that has been coming down as part of Valve's policies lately. I hope that it gets some more attention going forward as it is a great title.
