Year Walk is the newest app release from Simogo, the developer behind hit titles like Bumpy Road and Beat Sneak Bandit.
Unlike the aforementioned titles, Year Walk is a first person adventure game set in 19th century Sweden, with a dark and creepy atmosphere. Here's how Simogo describes it:
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 cryptic puzzles, touch and listen in your search to foresee the future and finally discover if your loved one will love you back.
Year Walk is more than just a simple game. The beasts and events of the world are chronicled in the Year Walk Companion, which is a separate reference guide app that Simogo has designed to go along with the main app.
Our sister site TouchArcade mentions that the Year Walk's muted colors and grainy overlay work well to create a suspenseful atmosphere, and that the game's "meditative mechanics keep you hooked in."
Year Walk can be downloaded from the App Store for $3.99. [Direct Link] Year Walk Companion can be downloaded for free. [Direct Link]
