About

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!

Year Walk reviews and comments

Defines "indie". Small, 2D-animated, simple, yet thrilling and atmospheric. Gameplay is just simple enough to be called so.

One of the best Games of this Price Range and this Genre that have ever crossed my Path. At the beginning, as some people have already described, are quite confused, but you soon know why you walk the Year Walk or Arsgang in the first place. I'm not going to bore you with Executions, I'm just asking you to play it. If You like Nordic Mythology and would like to have an eerie atmosphere woven Around you, don't miss this Piece of gold. < 3

So I learned this pretty fact about Christian churches in Sweden, you can read it in the compendium in-game as well: When a church was built in midieval times, an animal was sometimes buried alive under the floors - most commonly goats since these were comparatively cheap. There have also been stories of criminals being buried alive as punishment. In other versions the criminal's heart was cut out and placed inside an animal carcass that was sacrificed. If you are into creepy folklore, like eerie stories and atmospheric games with a unique art style, this is for you.

Really recommend those who want to sound a little quieter Tones. The Story is excellent, right down to the point of Taste, since something creepy, old Customs like Krabat'S, not necessarily Goth, but almost, Goth is rather fantasy. One can also give very theoretically recent Children, but it is especially about pagan elements in Christianity. Rarely to not present at all, that such a topic is seriously addressed in a Video Game. You expect a Point and Click, but is more of a Walking Simulator with looking and a few Rubs.

This Game is a real little Masterpiece. Unfortunately, it's only in English and I also had to read some Vocabulary. It is important to read well and let yourself be captivated by the Game. You don't just play through it once, it hides more than seems. To REALLY play the Game you should play it several times and Keep in mind all the Hints and tips. You just have to enjoy this Game, the Music, the Atmosphere, just everything. I recommend that anyone who stands on Puzzles, Secrets and Goosebumps buy it. It is definitely justified to his Price.

Year Walk-a Swedish Game. I haven't played this game for long, but what you see in the first 5 Seconds of Playing Is enough: An unfathomably beautifully drawn world. Can understand when People say "that's not mine," but you should definitely have seen it, that's really something else! No classic seltroshooter game, no Role-playing Game, but also no Point & click game. The Creators really made an Effort here! You don't see such beautiful Games every Day, every Euro worth it! In addition to the Puzzles, you can also be very frightened, while the interesting Story follows through the "Year Walk ..."
