Simogo presents Year Walk

We are very happy and proud to present the project we are working on:

Year Walk for iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad.

Here is the trailer:

What is Year Walk?

Short version:
It’s a first person 2D adventure, set in a the dark and cold woods of 19th century Sweden, in which you will encounter creatures and other strange phenomena from Swedish folklore.

Long version:
It is a dream project in which we explore way different emotions than those in any of our previous games.
It’s a little bit of interactive art, a little bit of intuitive touch navigation, a little bit of a picture book, a little bit of an adventure game, a little bit of mystery and horror, a little bit of occult and supernatural phenomena, and a lot of folklore.

We are making Year Walk in collaboration with some absolutely lovely people which we will present to you at a later date.

It might also be more than a game.

This is all very new to us and that is why we are incredibly excited about it.
We will reveal more in the coming months. Stay tuned.

Malmö, Sweden – September 4, 1902 – From the makers of Beat Sneak Bandit and Bumpy Road, comes an iOS project continuing a tradition of folklore storytelling of mythical creatures and the supernatural – Simogo is proud to announce Year Walk.

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, in a vision quest set in 19th century Sweden. Control and interact with the world, objects and creatures in every way you can think of in your search to bend the rules of the universe and open the rift that separates our world and what lies beyond it.

Mysteries and clues awaits everywhere in Year Walk, but to fully understand the events that took place on that cold New Year’s Eve players will have to delve deeper than the adventure and lose themselves between fact and fiction.

Year Walk launches on iOS this winter.
