It’s true, but almost unbelievable. This thing we have worked on for almost 10 months is now out worlwide.
Thank you for being so enormously patient in your wait for this experience. We hope that it can live up to your expectations.
We know the urge can be strong, but we definitely recommend not watching any gameplay videos of Year Walk. Going in fresh is the best way to experience this game.
Try to not get lost in the woods. And don’t panic.
OK! We have two pieces of amazing news for you.
First of all: We are proud, happy and relieved to present YEAR WALK COMPANION!
What’s that? A companion? YUP! A FREE guide app containing information and neat things about the creatures and phenomena in Year Walk. This is Theodor’s baby as much as it is Simogo’s. It has turned out into a super cool little thing, and we are pretty proud of it!
And the second piece of news is:
This neat little app AND Year Walk will launch on FEBRUARY 21st!
Simogo is happy to announce Year Walk Companion – a reference guide app to the mysterious myths and creatures encountered in the highly anticipated game Year Walk. A free mini-encyclopedia to keep handy when playing, or in preparation of your adventure. Or perhaps for contemplation after having finished your year walk?
Year Walk Companion covers a range of forgotten beliefs and superstitions and goes deeper into the subject of year walking, as well as the supernatural beings found in the game.
Created in collaboration with folk lore and ethnology expert Theodor Almsten, the free Year Walk Companion is essential to those who wish to get the most out of Year Walk.
Year Walk and Year Walk Companion will be available on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad February 21st.
