关于这款游戏

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!

100分钟才玩了一周目……
最后跳出来那行黑底白字的walk again的时候我心想……
妈的我才不会再来一遍……

说正经的,这游戏好评!略微的惊悚要素,解谜内容也是挺好。一款不错的小品级游戏。不管是你入包买的还是单买,都值得一玩。花点时间去感受那种神秘宗教(邪教?)带来的氛围。总体给9分!

Fantastic little game! I've recently been trying to experience as many horror/supernatural or even just eerie games that I can find and this one hit the spot. Left me craving more and even after you believe you've finished the core game theres some surprises left for us that make the experience that much more real and leaves you with a chill.

Had to jot down some notes here and there which I haven't had to do for a game in a while (but I might just be getting old). You gotta' love Simogo for the amount of research they put into these games. It started out so serene too, I loved everything about that first meeting with her...

[Game originally played on iOS]

If you're looking for a review to determine if this is a game worthy of your time, I'll cut you the search: yes, it absolutely is. I'll get more into my thoughts on the game itself below.

However.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but if you own an iPhone or iPad, get that version instead.
There are a lot of puzzles that make a lot more sense and that are a lot more clever with touch controls. There's no reason not to at least pick that version up first. The visuals are identical, it's a few bucks cheaper, and the controls are arguably better when actually using your fingers to swipe across the environment.

As for the game itself, it's a stellar game. For such a short runtime, Year Walk shows an interesting world and builds a genuinely fascinating and creepy atmosphere. The visuals are absolutely gorgeous and really compliment that atmosphere. The story is also really clever and doesn't overstay it's welcome. Much like the original Portal, it's short, sweet, and gets it's point across with no distractions. All killer, no filler.

Absolutely pick this game up if it looks up your alley. Again, I'd urge you to try the iOS version first if you have that option available to you. If not, the PC release is absolutely fine, with only sometimes fiddly controls and a few surprises neutered in the process. I highly recommend Year Walk.

如果这游戏没看深层剧情和第二结局的话我个人认为最多5分
但如果加上全部剧情,个人评分9/10


之前那篇中文评测说的不错,
不过想要深层理解这个游戏的剧情需要查看游戏中的文档
这游戏的剧情来源于瑞典传统的民俗故事
首先是百科全书,当然英语不过关的同学可以去贴吧看精品,那里洋文好的人多的很呐
http://tieba.baidu.com/p/2193719282
看完百科全书能够帮助理解背景
等通过一次关之后会得到提示,这才是这个游戏剧情的真正的内容,可能另一篇评测并没有指出这一点

下面剧透


通关之后会有提示
North of the mill
South of the Brook
二周目,打开地图,相应位置有两行字母,
North of the Mill - theoalm68
South of the Brook - 1894
Journal中输入账号密码,能够打开隐藏的日记,全英文加图片,当然贴吧那里洋文好的人多得很啊
http://tieba.baidu.com/p/2196466890

等看完之后,相信诸君对背景和剧情有了更深的了解,之后
还记得路上有一个各种符号打不开的箱子么,看完打开,直接观看第二结局
再懒……看这个吧!http://tieba.baidu.com/p/2271374330


最后吐槽下那个20分钟过关的成就真的是必须非常熟练啊,要练习很多次啊!

Love it.
A great use of folklore in a hell of a game. Every culture has those special days when the natural order is weaker, just before it's restored. Or it's a year that dies and is born anew, or the Sun cycle reaching it's lowest of highest.
Anyway, here it's the end of the year, a day when "things" are more real, and creapy.
Without spoyling just this: you need to experience it. Play it. I know I did.

Very interesting and unique game with a dark and slightly creepy atmosphere. I enjoyed it a lot. The encyclopedia tells some interesting tales which will help make your Year Walk easier and on top of that, you have access to hints to point you in the right direction. The first time you finish the game, it isn't exactly over yet. You are given a clue to discover a secret, which will lead to a lot more information and the actual end of the game.
The achievements are small puzzles themselves, as you don't get them for simply completing the Year Walk; you need to do things in a certain order, not use hints, etc. It's definitely worth another walk to get these done and it won't take long if you paid attention and/or took notes during your first walk.

I really enjoyed Year Walk. It has a dreamy, sinister atmosphere with lots to learn about Swedish folklore. The puzzles aren't too bad, though the developers provide hints, which was nice in a few cases. Definitely jumped a few times, but I loved the art, feel and gameplay. you can definitely tell it was made for tablet/mobile though, based on the amount of "touch and drag" mechanics. A good way to spend an evening.

This game is just perfect for me: It has a fascinating theme, is very atmospheric and the art style is beautiful. It's peaceful and silent, but not boring! The game is short enough to be beaten within an hour (I don't like games that take too much time), but after all there is enough potential left to play it a second, third or fourth time: Different endings and additional, more challenging, puzzles, that don't have to be solved when playing it the first time.
And apart from that is 5,99€ an excellent price for a game I have so much fun with!

First ever review so here goes:

This was a three person project with one man taking on development, music, and research respectively. The team clearly made it their goal to stay true to the folk lore of Year Walking (evidenced by the in-game encyclopedia and a journal that you'll learn of on your own) as well as various supernatural elements of Swedish myth. The game took me around 2 hours to complete, including a secret that will involve some reading but made me cherish this game even more (if it's not clear I really liked this game). The music was beautiful, with a light-hearted melody toward the start, but most of it was quite foreboding. The gameplay was very simple, it is point and click with the only movement being left, right, forward and back. The UI is very simple and stays out of the way of what I thought to be very nice visuals. The puzzles are all well-thought with one in particular that made me look up the hints you can find in-game. On the subject of hints, they're all intentionally vague, more like advice than a concrete answer which keeps them from feeling cheap in my opinion. The game has a good story, told neatly with no superfluous details or characters and it really got me at the climax. The game is short but promises to keep you transfixed for its entirety.

A brilliant and beautiful little game. The puzzles are challenging but not alienating. the story (while relatively short) is easy enough to follow allowing the chance to immerse yourself in some truly fascinating lore and mythology. The art style is also absolutely stunning, I would recommend this game to anyone. :D

Year Walk is one of the most interesting and unique experiences I have had in gaming for a very long time. It's a first person adventure horror game based around the little known Swedish folklore of the "year walk", a ritual where individuals go without food and drink all day and then wander the woods at midnight, hoping to gain visions of the future but also potentially encountering dangerous supernatural beings. As such, the setting and story are fantastic and really draw you into the game. The great soundtrack, creepy sound effects, and unique visual style that looks like a mix between a pop-up book and a silent film help to enhance the setting even further and make this game a very emotional experience. While playing Year Walk, I truly felt the sensation of being all alone in a dark forest. In this way, the game was simultaneously comforting and terrifying in a way that I can't quite explain. Another enjoyable aspect of the game is that it essentially drops you into an open world and leaves you to explore and solve puzzles on your own, much like Myst or The Witness.

Overall, I highly recommend Year Walk. It's an experience not easily forgotten and best played on a dark snowy evening with a good set of headphones.

Year Walk has a great atmosphere and its utilization of Scandinavian folklore is neat. Too bad it’s an utter chore to play even with its short run time, the puzzles are garbage and are either obtuse as ♥♥♥♥ or tedious busywork. You need to play the game again to get the true ending, but hell if I'm going to do that.

Every once in a while, I find myself in a mood that makes me want to experience something different; when such a thing happens, I take a peek at a game that doesn't look like a typical game; that neither plays, nor feels, like one; a game such as Year Walk.
A chill and dark venture into Swedish folklore, Year Walk consists of a series of pleasant and simple puzzles, all set under the frame of a forest; but as the title suggests, the core of the game is rather in the walking and immersing yourself in a very unique acoustic and visual landscape, and in the story that unfolds as you progress. Do not let yourself be fooled by the "horror" tag some people have put the game under; this is anything but a horror game despite - or rather because of - its exploring of a dark folklore.
Year Walk isn't just another video game, in that you won't have fun going through it. You will experience something.
Have you ever encountered an Owl in the middle of a forest, at night? Stood silent in the dark, your breathing suddenly becoming less of an automatism, while these two bright eyes were staring at you? It is a very precious feeling; one that games such as Year Walk try to convey... and sometimes succeed in doing so.

短小精悍的解谜游戏
过去的人们曾经欲追寻所谓的“未来的足迹”,于是每年除夕,便有这样一群人去进行这样一项活动,即“Year Walk”。在寒冷的冬日,他们不见外人,不见火光,一天与世隔绝后,在除夕夜独自走向教堂,在神灵的庇佑下,获得种种灵视,以一瞥来年会发生的关于生死,关于爱的一切。

嗯这就是游戏的基本背景w,这是一个含有轻微恐怖元素的的解谜游戏,以一个传统的仪式为线索,通过在全图中寻找各种线索,不断推动故事的发展。故事很短,但是一周目如果眼神不好或者什么的很容易卡关,浪费大约两小时的时间,尽管游戏自带hint——但这并不会过多影响游戏带来的风韵美感。

请注意,英语好对理解剧情设定有很大帮助,但不是必须的!
此外国区目前不再供应次作品,请去App Store购买IOS版!


以下正文。
  • 画面 9/10
    冬日的夜晚,简约的半抽象画风,给人一种神秘而又耳目一新的美感。

  • 音效 7/10
    游戏的音乐存在感非常低,略过不提。音效方面,整体较为简约而应景,个人觉得制作方还是把重点放在了内容上,游戏过程中风格还是偏安静了一点。嗯毕竟大半夜的,虽然有鬼,但hqjblkcsuhvpoaub31.

  • 操作 7/10
    什么,这游戏有操作?视角一律往前看,第一人称看风景视角,鼠标交互。
    Tip:别忘了键盘不仅仅有WASD(上下左右),你会知道为什么这么说的。

  • 游戏性 9/10
    游戏流程挺短的其实,但是如前文所说,作为解谜游戏,玩家可能由于眼瞎等等原因各种卡关(比如在下),然而两遍玩下来过后还是感觉难度挺恰到好处的。还能说什么呢?

    友情提示,内含少量高能Jump Scare,心脏病患者请回避或远离屏幕,珍爱生命,原理迷信(x)

  • 剧情 9/10
    关于剧情设定我已经在开始说差不多了,想要了解更多关于Year Walk这一文化习俗及相关的传说,请参阅游戏中自带的百科全书(这也是我说英语要过关的原因)。游戏本身重在文化设定及其带来的神秘感,而不在于设定,可能不适合所有玩家食用。

  • 重玩性 7/10
    一周目过了一遍过后,一个成就都没有!惊呆,于是去扒了全成就指南,二周目直接全成就get,整体历时100 min左右,我应该不会继续玩三周目了,毕竟是小品向的作品,安安静静玩一遍,再爆刷一遍,也就够了。

  • 整体 8.0/10
    优美的小品游戏,流程较短,解谜难度适中但可能比较线索隐晦,独特的画风与文化设定是最大吸引点,总体而言一部短小精悍的优良解谜作品。

以上

REVIEW
Year Walk is one of those abstract games that more closely resembles a piece of art than a video game. The gameplay is extremely minimal, while the true soul of the game lies in its ambiance, art direction, and core concept. This is the type of game which won’t appeal to everyone. For those who appreciate the occasional artsy game with minimal gameplay, then you will probably find Year Walk interesting, relaxing, and enjoyable. If you are looking to play a traditional video game, you shouldn’t be looking here.

The gameplay is roughly 3 parts “walking-simulator” and 1 part puzzle game. Navigating the area is your primary “challenge,” with the addition of a few puzzles you will have to solve. The answers to these puzzles can be a bit obscure, but there is a competent hint system if you want to avoid being stuck for too long and just want to enjoy the zen of the game.

The core concept of the game is also quite interesting. Year Walk is based on the Swedish folklore of Årsgång, which I had never heard of before playing this, and which I found to be interesting. After learning a bit about it, I was able to see that the developers did an outstanding job bringing the idea to life in video game form, even despite its inherently simplistic design.

The art direction, soundscape, and overall ambiance of the game make for a mysterious atmosphere which is very well aligned with the core concept. Admittedly, the graphics are quite simple; but the simple graphics fit the simple game.

Short, interesting, and atmospheric: Year Walk makes for a fun little experience that is well-produced and should be easily enjoyed by anyone who truly appreciates the genre.

A short game with little extras like 2nd ending and some secres/ easter eggs for achievement players. The game is unique and strange but it makes fun so give it a chance even if its a very short game you can beat it in a bit more then 15 min but its a experience maybe for some so maybe you want to support this game with a few money. I give this game hardly 84 % if it would be longer i would give more points but this style and weirdness is so crazy. Thanks for reading.

This game manages to take mythology, folklore and tales from Sweden's past and weave them into a pilgrimage of sorts with an interesting narrative with nothing more than simple puzzle mechanics. It's a lot more fun than many other games of similar ilk and it's clearly down to a lot of care and attention during development as well as a knowledge and emphasis of the lore. I found it short, quite different and refreshing and interesting to play through.

Highlights

The things that carry Year Walk are most definitely the simple ambient design and the weaving of the story and lore into the world while staying true to the subject matter. It's carefully and smartly done and often feels as though you're part of a fairy tale or dark bedtime story as much as a video game.

Mistakes and Annoyances

Being a port of a mobile game, it suffers from a lack of depth from the gameplay, and while the hands off approach definitely works well with the narrative and story, it's still an issue when compared against other longer, deeper titles at the same price. Having said that though, I feel like had the game been any longer it may've run the risk of adding less enjoyable puzzles for the sake of length rather than story and ultimately, while short and simple, everything is fun to experience and discover.

Recommendations

Priced at $5.99/£4.79/4.99€ on the Steam Store at the time of review, Year Walk isn't expensive and probably isn't overpriced, but there may be better alternatives around the same price range on Steam and mobile. Due to the interesting world, atmosphere and content though, and the simple enjoyable play-through, there's no reason to avoid Year Walk and it's worth a play for anyone looking to waste an hour or so.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/269050

* Note: Purely by coincidence I seem to have played Year Walk at the perfect time and picked up a free achievement for my luck. Happy New Year everyone!
* Simogo, the developers of Year Walk, have a fantastic website full of Apps, Music, Art and other interactive projects. Their blog and work portfolio in particular are very worth a look.

Unedited review notes 31/12/2015 for Year Walk

+Style and scares work well with the mythology and lore, even if I'm ♥♥♥♥-scared of jumpscares
+Nicely thought out puzzles with plenty of clues
+Good staggered hints system
-Puzzles are often too easy to misinterpret or hard to spot in the world
-Puzzles often require backtracking

A hazy and dreamy exploration in Swedish folklore laced with some thematic horror. No, year walking is not a a real thing, but as we learned to write down our tales all to late it’s all quite blurry anyway.

A few of the puzzles are infuriatingly hard and the overall game map is small enough to get away with the disorienting way of movement along it.

I never missed the lack of narrative while playing, but the excellent writing in the ending showed a glimpse of what the game could have been with a bigger budget. It’s a couple of hours long, short on story but great on ambience.

Probably only recommended for hardcore adventure fans and those interested in the peculiarly dark tales of Swedish folklore.

An atmospheric and somewhat creepy game with slightly confusing map mechanics. Since the map is crucial to the game, it hindered my playing experience a bit. Once I got used to it I enjoyed this game a lot. The art is nice and it's of a rather short duration. Not crazy about it but worth a shot on sale.

A beautiful, artful, intriguing, and extremely atmospheric horror game. Excellent writing, and fascinating presentation of myth, combined with a very unique and engaging graphic design create one of the best offerings in the horror genre I've experienced in a long time. The designers did an fantastic job in the writing, sound and graphic design, and execution of the game. The steam achievements are an excellent addition and reward additional exploration. The puzzles were fair, and engaging for the player, and fun, and not as difficult as others may suggest.

Highly recommended.

when I fininshed my first Year Walking I did it again.
This game's story, graphic, especially The lore was stuck in my mind.
The gameplay is simple and the puzzle isn't too difficult (and isn't too easy)
and the lore is VERY INTERESTING!
(by the way I live in Asia so The folklore in this game that based on Swedish lore is different from mine, It seems like a new thing!)

and another thing: I think we should add 'Great Soundtrack' tag for this game.

You know a game doesn't work when you have no clue what to do.
A game shouldn't have you look at the integrated hint system just to know where you're supposed to go or what you're supposed to do. It should be logical.

In this game, only the developers' mind know what to do next.

The mere fact that there is an integrated hint system is proof that they are aware that their game has no meaning by itself. It has to tell you what you're supposed to do, because nothing else in the game will tell you.

That doesn't work.

This is a game you should play for the creepy athmosphere, the audio and storyline.

This actually quite overwhelmed me since I expected just a pretty click & play. It's a puzzle game so some like it, some don't since you can get a bit frustrated when you can't solve it quickly. I loved the double ending and reading the journal. I play this game everytime my friends come over just to show them the awesomeness. It is not for everyone tho and once you finished the two ending... well there is just no replay value unless you wanna show it to friends. The solutions to the puzzles aren't randomly generated so once you've played it you can pretty much write the answers down and finish it quickly the second time. Which has its pros and cons.

Big con for me; No collectable cards, hence no badge to craft :'( (I'm addicted to collecting cards)
