What is Year Walk 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.
A nice scary game for the night of New Year. A lot of riddles and subtle horror is offered. Fits both in the art style and in the muscular background. Furthermore, the game contains a lot of very interesting things about Swedish superstition & myth creatures & folk. It really seems like a real story is being told. For the New Year, the ancient Swedish tradition of the Year Walk is fitting, where hallucinating is suspended due to the darkness in the forest to find its way out and get a sneak peek to the future. I really liked it, although I already knew the story from a Let's Play. PS: Even an anxious person I played it with tied up the game at some point, so the horror was a minor matter at some point. :)
