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!

IF you don mind paying 6$ for a short game, *like 3hours gameplay short) And are intrigued by puzzles and mythology, then ya sure go for it. I personally got this game for free or else i wouldnt buy it, however, it has a very particular gaming taste which i reccommend people trying out the game for this specific reason, its different than the mainstream games somehow.

A bit creepy, but I wouldn't say very scary. Really fun but I haven't beaten it yet. But so far I would surely recommend!

Neat aesthetic and fresh gameplay, although at its core it is an adventure game. The atmosphere was also very well crafted, as were the puzzles. It would probably be best to play this in a single sitting with enough time to take in all the game has to offer.

I assume I got this in some bundle, so for me the value was excellent. The asking price is also very reasonable.

There's a kind of game that doesn't repeat itself.
It's not bloated with grinding, nor trying to incentivize the player with microachievements and level-ups. It doesn't stroke your space-marine ego, and it doesn't boast lifelike graphics and physics. No, this game just wants to tell you a story and make you feel something.

This is why I love Year Walk. It's atmospheric, clever, stylized, and steeped in folklore.

You are a man attempting a Year Walk--a nighttime stroll through a supernatural forest to win a prophetic vision. It plays like a point-and-click minus the tedioum. There is no inventory, no dialogue trees, no rapid-fire click spaming to find objects of interest. Just exploration and a wealth of bite-sized puzzles,

On three occasions, I've sat friends down to play the entire game while I watched over their shoulders. They were all spellbound. I say with certainty that Year Walk is worth your time.

This game is a lovely point-and-click puzzle horror game. For $5 it's more than worth it, and playing it again was very nostalgic. The developers went for a choice that favors symbolism over action, so if that isn't your thing, don't pick this up. It's very artsy, and there are a bunch of secrets hidden after you beat it for the first time, so it has a decent amount of replay value.

10/10 Flawless

Year Walk is a game that I first purchased about a month after it's release here on Steam, over two years ago. I mainly just wanted a quick horror fix, and what I got was a lot more. This game focuses on the very obscure ancient Swedish tradition of Årsgång, or Year Walking. After playing this game, I was awestruck by not only the way the story was presented, but also by the amazing visuals, and how even though there was certainly horror elements in the game, I felt completely comfortable.

Upon completing this game, I felt like I needed to know more about this tradition that was Årsgång. This feeling sent me on a two year journey through Swedish sources and 20 year old dead internet forums that helped me conclude a whole blog and thesis on this subject. Never has a game compelled me so strongly to find out more, and to know all I can possibly know, and in April of this year, I had done it. I had found out all there was to know about this once obscure tradition that know found itself as common knowledge.

This is why I am asking everybody who could be reading this to BUY THIS GAME. You will be intrigued, terrified, curious, excited, mystified, and much more over this 2 or so hour journey, maybe three if you read the excellent encyclopedia. I've played this game 5 times now at different speeds and settings, just to make sure I found every little thing in this game. Now that I have, I must say it was completely worth it, and I'm sure I'll be going back to it again soon. Some people may find this game boring, and I understand that, it's not necessarily for everybody out there, but please just try it. This game is $6.00 (£4.10), when it should easily go for twice that price. if I had to give this game some sort of overall rating, it must be a 10/10. I feel ridiculous giving a rating out to a game that has changed the way I see thing so much but I feel it's justified. Just play it.

Just an all over great game. The puzzles kept me busy, and the eery atmophere of the game made it that much better. The art was a huge plus, along side the music. Definitely enjoyed it anyway

This is a real horror game. It's not like all those crap jump scare filled mainstream horror games. It has suspense that actually makes you scared to continue playing. It's paper like art style really adds to its creepy atmosphere. I also really enjoyed the story and Scandinavian folklore. All in all this is a very original and interesting game and it deserves its high praise.

Amazing game in particular for me. You can find here lots of facts about a terrifying Year Walk and north mythology.
It's not a screamer but atmosphere was really scaring and it's truly a horror game.

So... If you want to have fun, if you enjoy some tricky puzzles and if you are fascinated by mythology it will be a good choice to buy this game. At least to end this story again for the 2nd ending ;)

A very tight little package with great Scandinavian-rooted lore. Super grim, a mind blower, and even more than meets the eye.

One of the best horror games I've played in a while. It knows exactly how long it needs to be, and it doesn't make overuse of jump scares like so many other games of recent years do.

Best of all however is its truly terrifying and chilling atmosphere. Don't let the soft, storybook visuals fool you. This game is deep, intriguing, and dark.

Year Walk has a way of leaving one wishing for more of the story, and wondering where the lines between game and academia lay. It is one of few games where following the clues after your first playthrough leads to larger revelations of the story, rather than bells and whistles. But in a true twist, leaving the world of the game to do your own research leads to a surprising discovery. Though similar to Never Alone in its ability to extend cultural lore to a wider audience, Year Walk is not built with the purpose of accurate celebration of ancient Scandanavian folklore. However, it is a lovely game full of lonely visuals that harken to a time when people believed in the things that go bump in the night. If you enjoy folklore and visual artistry, this game is worth the few hours of your time it will take to complete.

Originalmente publicado en: http://www.shdownloads.com.ar/2014/03/analisis-year-walk-pc-2014.html

Luego de su paso exitoso por la AppStore, llega a PC Year Walk, una aventura oscura cargada de puzzles desarrollada por Simogo, responsables del conocido Beat Sneak Bandit.

Estamos frente a uno de esos títulos extraños que no pasa desapercibido. Lo odias o lo amas, así de simple. Es una aventura cargada de personalidad cuyos rasgos característicos la alejan de cierto tipo de publico. Es un viaje a un mundo desconocido; grotesco pero atractivo. Claro que, si estas leyendo este artículo, asumimos que sientes un gusto especial por lo oscuro ¿Verdad? En ese caso, quizás quieras seguir leyendo para descubrir cual es el atractivo que esconde esta peculiar aventura sueca.

Si eres amante del poin&click, Year Walk posiblemente te atrape al instante. Su jugabilidad es bastante tradicionalista, aunque algunos detalles de sus controles, sobre todo en cuanto a desplazamiento del personaje, claramente vienen heredados de su plataforma madre; se sienten poco prácticos. Pero su propuesta jugable si es la típica de aventura gráfica, basada en la exploración, la búsqueda de pistas y la resolución de puzzles. Y ya que los menciono, estos rompecabezas no son especialmente difíciles de resolver, pero si nos pondrán en aprietos puntuales. Claro que si la cosa se pone jodida, existe un sistema de pistas no tan explicitas que se puede activar desde el menú.

¿La historia? Es simple, pero se va revelando a cuenta gotas por lo que logra generar cierta intriga en el jugador. Nos meten en la piel de un personaje extraño que, siguiendo una tradición local, se embarcará en un viaje en busca de respuestas. Lo que no sabe es que le esperan multitudes de visiones paranoides y extrañas criaturas que no harán más que alejarlo del camino. Su desarrollo narrativo acompaña al gameplay puesto que siempre será necesario resolver un puzzle para avanzar en la trama. Esto puede resultar algo tedioso en momentos muy puntuales donde el enigma a resolver carece de chispa o emoción; pero Year Walk se las arregla para volver a engatusarnos y así terminaremos por continuar con nuestra aventura.

Por otro lado, su apartado gráfico destaca muchísimo por su lado artístico. La paleta de colores elegida se combina perfectamente con la brillante dirección de sonido para crear una atmósfera macabra, y por sobre todo, única; un ambiente que trasmite una sensación singular de extrañeza e inquietud, pero a su vez, de comodidad y encanto. Es difícil describir lo que se siente al jugarlo, pero creo que es mas difícil lograr que un videojuego 2D sea tan atmosférico como lo es este. Si sumamos su diseño de personajes y escenarios, excentricos por donde se los mire, podemos concluir que, para bien o para mal, su apartado visual no dejará indiferente a nadie.

Antes de cerrar, quiero comentar que esta versión para PC cuenta con agregados especiales, entre los que se encuentran nuevos puzzles, el sistema de pistas y un mapa de las localizaciones. Además, trae consigo la enciclopedia / bestiario, optativa en la versión de iOS, que explica los mitos que originan a las distintas criaturas que nos topamos a lo largo del juego. Aún así, la duración no se ha extendido mucho. Explorar al máximo el juego, con todos sus secretos, no te llevará más de tres horas.

Palabras finales
Su llegada a PC puede significar también el encuentro con un público más apto para valorar este tipo de juego. Todo aquel deseoso de probar una buena experiencia centrada en puzzles, pero que, a su vez, esté acostumbrado a lidiar con videojuegos más atrevidos y salidos de la linea, deberá darle una oportunidad a Year Walk. Quienes se dejen enamorar, no se olvidarán de él por un buen tiempo.


Lo bueno:
-Su atmósfera y todo lo relativo a lo visual
-El trasfondo histórico y mitológico de su trama es muy atractivo y el juego lo sabe aprovechar
-Algunos de sus puzzles son muy interesantes y entretenidos pero...


Lo malo:
-...otros no tanto
-Se siente un poco corto


Nota Final:
8
