Informazioni sul gioco

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!

Quando Year Walk vi inviterà a passare una notte nella gelida foresta che fa da sfondo al rituale pagano, preparatevi a puntino. Il folklore svedese vi vuole a digiuno per un giorno intero, meglio se festivo, lontani da qualsiasi tipo di fonte di luce per ventiquattr’ore, da dover passare, fra l’altro, in solitudine. Io ci aggiungo anche l’assoluta necessità di aspettare che fuori si faccia completamente buio, tirare giù le serrande e indossare un buon paio di cuffie impostando il volume un pizzico più forte di quanto possiate sopportare. Un altro passo fondamentale, l’ultimo prima di cliccare due volte sul collegamento all’exe di gioco fra i tanti altri del vostro desktop, è il prepararsi a leggere un inglese abbastanza fruibile, perché saltare a piè pari i documenti enciclopedici (ma non per questo poco affascinanti) che i ragazzi di Simogo hanno messo li per noi, nascosti dietro una delle icone che compongono il menu in alto a destra sullo schermo -quasi come fossero indicazioni tangenziali, prive di reale mordente- equivarrebbe a giocare ad occhi chiusi.

It's been months since I first played Year Walk on iOS and I still think about it regularly. The Steam version of this game is as beautifully made as the original, and the changed puzzles feel at home on the PC. The atmosphere is greatly enhanced in this version of the game, providing a creepier mood than the iOS version - so much so that surprises I knew were coming still got jolts out of me. The story behind this game is so intriguing and mysterious that I wish there was more information about it online; Year Walk is an amazing introduction into Scandinavian folklore that everyone should play.

First off, there are two things I must mention: one, I have had absolutely zero experience with the iOS version of Year Walk; this review is based 100% on the PC version currently available on Steam. Two, I almost exclusively dislike "puzzle games." I find them annoying and tedious. That being said, I found Year Walk to be a mesmerizing and enjoyable little game.

In terms of its gameplay, Year Walk doesn't break the mold - there's nothing revolutionary to be found here. The puzzles are relatively simple and only required me to doodle a few things down on a scratch pad to help me solve the majority of them. They're not overly difficult. And if you do find yourself stuck, there's a Hint system in-game that's actually useful.
The controls for the PC work well overall, and I had no problems or confusion in how to do anything. So, as a port from a touch based device, this aspect is done fine.

So, then what makes this an excellent game? As I said, the puzzles presented in the game are not challenging. In fact, as I finished this game I came to the realization I had been tricked. This game wasn't about the puzzles at all. It was about the experience; the visuals, the music, the story, and the atmosphere it all creates. The puzzles are just a way to move you along.
Year Walk is ultimately all about the experience. And it's definitely quite the experience. It's visually striking - the art style is unique and hauntingly beautiful, and the music fits perfectly in with it. Together they enhance a weird, dark, and rather sad story.

In the end, Year Walk feels fleshed out and solid. It creates a unique atmosphere that's hard to compare and even harder to forget. Despite not liking puzzles games, I really found myself engrossed in the world that Year Walk so successfully creates.

Addendum (3/19/2014) - After playing through the game completely, twice, and also messing around with extras and some achievements, I feel that I have to make note that this is a short game, and more importantly one that lacks replayability. I'd still recommend the game, it's just something to bear in mind when making a purchase.

this game, oh man.

heads up, i played this on ipad almost a year ago and it still holds up really well even on pc

its super creepy and has a vibe not many puzzle games have. the best way i can describe it is that it feels like a popup book rendition of a super creepy swedish folklore version of myst. everything feels dream-like but you soon start seeing that not everything is as it appears.

+great art
+great soundtrack
+captures the feeling of being lost in the woods
+lore is polished really well
+puzzles are outstanding and mostly nonlinear, and without spoiling you have to dig pretty deep to solve some of the more arcane puzzles
-relatively short for a pc game

...
its almost midnight.
