Про цю гру

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!

Гра дивна. Дуже дивна. Навіть так: ДУЖЕ ДИВНА.

І це круто. Також із плюсів: цікава історія (без спойлерів, розберіться самі), атмосфера чудернацького скандинавського фольклору (з елементами хоррору, до речі), чудова аудіо-складова та хитромудрі пазли, інколи доволі моторошні.

З мінусів - короткотривалість. Але подивіться на ціну! На мою думку, воно того варте.

П.С. Перші десять хвилин ви нічого не розумітиме. Так і треба.

"лякає тільки невідомість"
Одже игра страшна доки з нею не познайомися :3
Я ходив по лісу Хрустів Сніг і нічого ніде не було я просто ходив
По одним і тим самим дорогам...
але коли ти зрозумієш то перестаєш боятись
і граєш в задоволеня :D

"only scares the unknown"
So the game is terrible as it is not poziomie :3
I walked through the woods Crunched the Snow and nothing was nowhere I just went
On the same roads...
but when you understand that cease to be afraid
and play fun :D

Year Walk is one of those rare bits of media that lingers in your mind long after you've finished it. It makes you feel like a part of you is missing after you've finished it and, like a junkie, you become desperate for more. Don't let the "ending" fool you. There's more. Find the Journal. Open the box. It's not too late.

You know what to do.

Year Walk is one of those games that can stick with you for longer than usually. Between the tragic story, dark world and haunting atmosphere it's a very unique experience. With gameplay and other technicalities pushed aside, there's nothing to distract you from immersing yourself in the game. And when you think you're finished, in a very self-referential twist the game reveals another layer of itself to complete the story. Striking and distinct audiovisual side perfectly complements the setting and folklore elements, making the game just as beautiful as it is grim and unnerving. Some criticize it for being quite short. While this is true, it doesn't have to be seen as something negative - the game is polished to the point of being virtually perfect, with no unnecessary content to better capture the essence of its meaning. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about it. It left me astounded and reflective. I have a feeling I'll be thinking about it for quite a while.

***MADE TO BE PLAYED >TWICE< - THE FIRST ENDING IS NOT THE ENDING***
I wonder how many people miss that part. At any rate, I walked into this game with no insight into what I was going to experience. The "first" playthough was short (about 90 minutes or so) and compelling, but then you are invited to walk again. Do it. The true ending is at the end of the "second" playthrough.

Non-spoiler tip: After your first paythrough. Read the journal. Read the journal.

***NOT A HORROR GAME***
While Steam has this listed as a Horror game; it is not. There are a few moments that may take you by surprise or have some troubling imagery, but this is not a scary game. It's a mindful journey through Scandinavian folklore.

I enjoyed this experience, and would recommend it to others.

This game is hard to describe. At once serene, surreal, and disturbing. Unexpected and unnerving. And yet somehow delightful. I won't soon forget this one.

It's not a very long game, but after you've finished it... it's not over. You'll see.

Note: This is a horror game

I did not know this was a horror game at first. I was suprised. It shows in my underwear.

+ Great story
+ Awesome grapics

- The game takes place in Sweden and I live in Sweden. Some of these creatures I heard about in bedtime stories when I was young, but this game shed a new light. can't go out anymore. Please send supplies as I am unable to get my daily oatmeal.

This game is lovely and creepy and smart and relaxing and depressing and pretty and scary all at the same time. You should play it.


Pros:

I may just be a dummy, but I actually found the puzzles kind of hard. They are very much "think-outside-the-box" type puzzles, and my brain don't always work that way. I had to use the hints a lot.

Fantastic atmosphere and visuals.

Clever story-within-a-story that will make you question reality itself...

Achievements that you will actually want to try to unlock because they are a major part of the game.


Cons:

There were a couple cut-scenes that felt very jarring and out of place because they were in a completely different visual style from the rest of the game.

A minimalist, atmospheric, pretty, challenging horror puzzle game.

Year Walk captures the eerie essence of a supernatural Scandinavian forest by night, and really succeeds in the horror aspect. There is a tension that accompanies the cold sounds and bleak environs. I was very impressed by the artistic style of Year Walk. It was minimalist, bleak but also beautiful. The colours aren't vibrant but they needn't be - hell they *shouldn't be*. This is the snowy wilderness of Scandinavia. I expect white, greys, blacks. Purples and reds are also used sparingly and effectively. The puzzles can be difficult, which I find helps the game a lot. It's a bit of a throwback to when games just sort of left you to it, with few or no hints. You're pretty much on your own in Year Walk, and I had to consult a walkthrough a couple of times. Some puzzles require some thought, and I found myself utilising the whole map to complete the puzzles, so no wasted space there at all.


The story is a difficult aspect to critique because I feel the gameplay tells the story itself. So to critique the way I play the game is to critique the story. That being said, there is some backstory, which is told through some basic dialogue at the beginning of the game, and there is an encyclopaedia which accompanies you in the game, which is pretty critical to completing the game - but the information in the (very small) encyclopaedia helps give background also. I find this method of story telling to be quite innovative and also found it really help immerse me in the game. The controls are basic - arrow keys for navigation, mouse for point/click. Can't really go wrong there.

In conclusion, Year Walk is a quirky, beautiful little game. Not particularly long, but it achieves a lot in that short time, particularly in regards to puzzle solving, immersion, horror and artistry.

If you're into creepy mythologic stories, (this one touches swedish/scandinavian folklore) you should give it a go. The game is rather short, but it does its job. I had a jump-scare at some point, but the rest is just chills down the spine, "oh my god did stuff like this really happen", kind of game. I loved it, the only SHORTcoming being its length.
The artwork is wonderful and so is the music. 10/10 no regrets!

"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."

This is hands down my favorite game of 2014. Perhaps ever.

First of all, there is an achievement that requires you to beat the game in under 20 minutes. It can easily be done. I'd say it took about an hour my first run through. The music/sound effects are perfect --haunting and soft. There are a few "Ahhh!" scares, but only a few and that makes them even more special. The artwork is amazing - ethereal is the word that comes to mind. I found myself really interested in the folklore presented. I'm usually not big on reading, but it was really interesting and not overdone. There are some tastefully done creepy scenes. Again, not overdone.

For someone who really struggles to stay focused on one thing for too long, this game was perfect. I was able to beat it three times and get all ten of the achievements without too much difficulty.

I simply can not reccomend this game enough.

A short horror-puzzle game based on Swedish folklore. Keep paper and something to write with nearby... but be careful who sees your notes or they may think you are descending into madness.

Beautifully atmospheric, wonderfully interactive, and delectably creepy. Very much one of my favorite games I've played this year.

Basically in this game you are a crab walking through the forest trying to get spooked. Worth the play if you have no plans on sleeping tonight. 2spooky4me.

Really good game. I love the unique gameplay and style with awesome puzzles. The story is excellent and total tearjerker for people who want to take in the emotion of the game. The art behind this game takes you back to a really old dark cartoon, I admire that. Audio is remarkable, very artistic and great choice in music. There are a few weird sinister moments that can make you jump if you have your speakers on a loud blast mode lol. But overall hands down a very great story, alternate ending made me sad, I enjoyed it.

This is a casual point and click/puzzle games with horror elements. Its more of a creepy feeling brought about by the ancient swedish folklore that the theme of the game is based around. It is not challanging in the traditional way of puzzle games but in combonation with the bleak and cryptic backround, the goals requiring thinking beyong what is right in front of you. You may want to carry a pen and paper while playing this game! I like that. Not exciting, but rewarding and original. Crisp art, information about the folklore and a few jumpy/scary moments it was worth the few hours it took to play through twice... Its not a happy game :)
7 of 10. Interesting game

As a Swede who works as an archaeologist and have read ethnology in university I was looking forward to this "game" since I know most of the folklore the game is based on.
The game was a nice experience, lovely aesthetics, but more of a presentation than a game for me. Not what I was expected, a bit let down.
Not sure if I have seen the "true" ending, but I have played enough of this game.
Hope to see more of Swedish/nordic folklore in games.
Still worth a playthrough.
