ゲームについて

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!

スウェーデンの古い伝承「Year Walk」を題材にしたホラーテイストな謎解きアドベンチャー

Year Walkとは、大晦日の深夜に森を歩き回ることで未来の啓示を得ることが出来るというという大昔の習慣のこと
主人公が、自身の将来を知るために、思いを寄せる彼女への告白の答えを知るためにYear Walkを行うというお話

スクリーンショットや動画を見てのとおり雪の積もる森がとても綺麗で、
2Dと3Dを合わせた移動システムやスウェーデンの民話に登場する奇妙な生物達も相まって
神秘的で孤独感と異世界感が漂う探検の雰囲気はばっちり

Year Walk研究者による百貨事典などの脇を固める補助機能もよく出来ていて、
解説だけでなく、雰囲気作りにも一役買っている

ところどころ入る演出はすばらしく、音楽もいい
特にエンディングの歌はなかなか他では聴かない雰囲気

どちらかというとアドベンチャーがメインで謎解きはサブの要素といった感じ
謎解きは基本的に脱出ゲームなどでありがちなやつで、困ったときはヒント機能もある

普通にクリアする分にはそこまで英語力は必要ないものの、
ストーリーの深い部分まで把握するには割りと英語力が必要かも
ただ、なかなか意外性のある練られたストーリーなので、やるならば是非深いところまで追いかけてほしい

元々はiOS向けのゲームだけど、PC版ではいろいろな要素を追加したりパズルなどをPC向けにしたりしているみたい

神秘的でホラーテイストで綺麗なアドベンチャーゲームがやりたい人はぜひ

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.

Year Walk is best described as a sort of stylistic adventure horror game. It's not really a hidden object game, but more focused on atmosphere and puzzles. The story of Year Walk is that you play as a man named Daniel, who lives deep in the woods. You are about to perform something known as a Year Walk, which is an old Scandinavian legend to starve before the midnight of New Years and wander into the forest and night to seek a glimpse of the future. However, there are trials, and strange beings that are said will try to apprehend you, as the very act of Year Walking breaks the two truths of our world, time and space. As you play you have to overcome these trials, explore the deep and progressively strange and unsettling woods, and over it all maybe piece together why Daniel is so concerned about the future to risk his life.

The atmosphere of the game is great. It's more unsettling, surreal, and strange than scary, but I had a constant uneasy feeling and yet fascination to events as they transpired around me. Everything dips into legends and myths from Swedish and Finnish tales, with a helpful encyclopedia if you're interested in knowing more of the origin of things around you. The whole atmosphere is backed by a fantastic soundtrack that, like the game, is appropriately off-kilter.

Year Walk strikes me as one of those games that sticks with you long after you beat it. The story isn't entirely surprising in how it plays out, but it's executed very well, and the details are a lot stranger and help make the whole situation far stranger than what actually happens. It's sort of like a classic folk-story in that what happens is somewhat predictable if you have any experience with stories of a similar kin, but that's not what makes the story interesting, it's how it's told and how everything comes to that natural conclusion. And Year Walk has a lot of depth, things to look into, and intriguing mysteries that stay in the mind long after you find out what ultimately happens.

Gameplay is pretty simplistic. You move left and right along a first-person 2D plane, and occasionally can walk forward or backward to another 2D plane. You interact with objects, and solve puzzles. The game isn't stylized like many other adventure games, with hidden item to find, as what you can and cannot do and interact with is very visible and clear, but some of the puzzles are a bit tricky. My tip is to sometimes think outside of the box. Most of the answers are often more obvious than they may seem at first, none are too challenging, but some aren't pushovers either. I also heavily suggest you keep a notebook and pen handy, it helped me a lot.

It's a game with great atmosphere, an interesting experience that'll last you about two hours, and for many I'd imagine an interesting introduction to Scandinavian myths and folklore. If you have an interest in atmospheric horror experiences, folk stories, or games with a surrealistic edge, I'd definitely give it a recommendation.

Descending through Year Walk is liking having an ice cube put down the back of your shirt, then being pushed into the Antarctic Ocean. It's chilling and unnerving in a way that messes with your head, transcending its own existence into something that feels tangible; too close for comfort and so well crafted it causes you to second guess your own instincts that this is nothing but fantasy. As I sat staring at "The End" plastered across my screen, I could still feel my quickened pulse as I tried to shake the feeling of being on edge, something no piece of entertainment in any medium has managed in what feels like a very long time.

Year walking is a practice (largely found in Sweden) in which a ritual is performed by the walker through which they are given a glimpse through time at what the future holds. However, it comes at a grave cost, and there is no guarantee the walker will even make it through alive.

Walking through a forest at midnight, snow blanketing the ground around you, you come face to face with the horrors that befall those that dare to year walk: The Watchers, twisted and greedy spirits, who demand their sacrifice for showing you what is to come. The deeper you get, the more vile and disturbing these encounters become, before you finally enter the church and see your fate.

This is when the game first ends, but it also marks the point at which the game truly begins. Up to this point you've been bustled along through this story with little in the way of explanation or reason. It's artistically brilliant and frightening to be sure, but all the same largely disconnected and without any real purpose, meant to alarm but ultimately lacking any substance. It's not then until you begin to walk again and the curtain is pulled away that the pieces fall into place and the true meaning behind your circumstances become clear. Terrifyingly so.

Year Walk is a master at what it tries to be. It lets nothing on and leaves you wandering in the dark for a good while, which only makes it more unnerving when it finally lays its cards on the table. The expert use of Swedish folklore ties its world and ours together as it attempts to break the forth wall as it weaves together fantasy and psychological horror into a brief but immensely compelling narrative. If you've gotten this far you've likely realized I've said a lot of nothing in all these words, and that's entirely intentional, as to say what makes Year Walk so brilliant would be to completely ruin it the experience. No, this is one walk that you have to take for yourself, though I promise you won't regret it.

I only read about Year Walk days before its release on PC and I initially thought this was a point-and-click adventure game. And in a way it is, but not in the traditional sense. Yes, there's clicking involved and yes, there are puzzles to be solved (some of them are really hard, by the way) but it's more of a thriller/horror game with point-and-click adventure mechanics.

I do have to say that I expected more horror here. The game is dark, and there are a couple of moments that are creepy but nothing truly scary. This disappointed me personally, because I like to be scared from time to time.
Then again, I guess I shouldn't play this game for just that. There are tons of other games that *will* scare you.
But Year Walk does have a good story and it looks pretty good for an iPhone port.

It should be played if you like adventure games, or dark and creepy stories. I thought it was 'just ok', and nothing spectacular. But that's me. You might just have a different opinion. Give it a shot.
