Acerca de este juego

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!

Una aventura rara la que tengo hoy entre manos. Se trata de que vas para aquí y para allá por un bosque sueco donde hace más frío que el copón consagrao, y te vas encontrando cosas extrañas y que al parecer, están relacionadas con la mitología sueca (prometo no mencionar a Abba ni a Ikea en las tontás que voy a soltar en este análisis).
Se trata de una aventura corta, y cuyos puzzles no son demasiado complicados, pero aún así, están genialmente hilados e integrados con el escenario y la interfaz de juego.
Jugaremos en primera persona, y el scroll es lateral, así que sólo nos moveremos a izquierda y derecha, peeero cuando lleguemos a ciertos lugares, una flechita nos indicará que podemos ir hacia delante o hacia atrás, pasando a un nuevo escenario con scroll lateral. Perderse es muy fácil, sobre todo si estás jugando borracho, pero para ello podemos hacer uso del... ¡Google Maps! Digo... ¡mapa! Con el mapa será facilísimo orientarse.
Como está todo más nevado que la tapa del wáter de una discoteca de la Ruta del Bakalao en 1993, los tonos del juego son fríos y algo oscuros.
El argumento del juego lo desconozco, porque iba como un misil a resolver puzzles y no me leí la documentación, pero en el menú de opciones, arriba a la derecha, tendremos texto para leer, el caso es que si no sabes inglés, mejor cógete un Super Humor del Botones Sacarino, porque no te vas a enterar. Al parecer, es un popurrí de mitología sueca con un cierto aire de terror (sí, el señor con bigote que sube el volúmen el volumen de golpe en momentos puntuales también está presente en el juego).
Lo cierto es que me divertí bastante, y los jugadores de aventuras gráficas saben que después del sexo, el primer trago de cerveza bien fría un día de verano y tirar un televisor desde una azotea, una de las mejores sensaciones que existen es encontrar una solución cuando estás atascado en un juego de estos, y con "Year Walk" tuve esa sensación. Al principio no sabrás cómo avanzar, pero de pronto, te fijas un poco, usas la lógica y darás con la solución. Por si eres un poco tontaco, tienes un sistema de pistas que, reconozco, tuve que usar en uno de los puzzles.
No creo que sea un juego que valga los 5'99€ que pide el Señor Steam, así que yo de ti, esperaría a una oferta, que seguro que las habrá, y no lo dejaría pasar.

A veces, es estos juegos tan cortos, ni se graba el progreso, y hay que pasárselo del tirón. En éste no, te guarda el progreso automáticamente, así que puedes cerrarlo si tienes que salir corriendo porque tu casa va a explotar o situaciones similares.
¿A qué te refieres que los puzzles están muy bien integrados? Muchas veces te darás cuenta que la respuesta que buscabas desde hace un rato, la tenías delante, sólo que "hay que fijarse".
Lo he empezado a jugar, pero no sé cómo conseguir más recursos de madera y piedra para construir catapultas para proveer a mis ejércitos y asaltar la fortaleza. Es que este nivel no consigo pasármelo. Amigo mío, tú no estás jugando a "Year Walk".

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.

Year Walk is a very interesting Adventure horror game. But will you want to play it ?

Year Walk story is really hard to explain. You play as a man trying to do a year walk on New year's eve. It's based on Swedish mythology. It's one of those games where you piece the story together when you play it.

Gameplay is really simple. You use the keyboard to move around and the mouse to click on stuff and the goals vary on the cycle you're on. It can range from trying to find ghost to trying to find a way to a church.

The art style is amazing to say the least. The hand drawn environments and characters are really amazing to look at. The style is really well drawn.

Audio is amazing. The soundtrack and sound effects are both really well made. It makes you feel tense and relaxed. It really makes you immersed in the world.

The game isn't difficult. Some of the puzzles are difficult but nothing too head scratching. The game gives you clues and even then you have hints which are helpful.

The map layout is the only bad thing about this game. It get's confusing really fast and it doesn't help when all environments look the same. I wish they could have given more indication where you need to go.

Game is really short. It took me 1 hour to finish it. There is an alternative ending which can be unlocked, but overall don't expect much replay value.

The game didn't have bugs what so ever. Any rig could handle this game. Don't expect to run into bugs while playing this game.

Year walk is a really tough game to review and to explain why you need to play it is even tougher, but you must play it no matter what. Year Walk was an amazing experience and the whole lore behind it is really interesting. Adventure game fans must own this little title as soon as possible. It's worth it at full price without a doubt. I give Year Walk a 8.5/10

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.

Year Walk is based on Swedish lore about vision quests. You embark on a long walk in the woods, looking for signs and meanings, and you come across some very strange stuff. There's a very dreamlike quality to the game where the odd glyph or ghost you run into feels almost expected, but it also serves to take you out of the real world and immerse you with very simple, beautiful graphics. This makes the horrifying bits all the more effective, because they come in rough contrast to the feel of the rest of the game. I won't lie, there have been a few jump scares, but the feel earned instead of cheap. It's like a nightmare intruding on the edges of a pastoral dream.

Gameplay is simple, moving left or right through pretty landscapes, moving forward or backward to different areas, and clicking on things to interact. You have a useful map and an encyclopedia that helps flesh out the legends and signs you encounter. The game also has a very clever way of getting you to use the encyclopedia later on, which I found very effective. The puzzles are pretty simple as well, so don't go in expecting a lot of gameplay. It's mostly exploring the woods and delving into the myths you encounter, which for the price, I think is well worth it. An entertaining, chilling experience.
