Earlier this year, we decided that we wanted to celebrate the upcoming release of Year Walk for Wii U in a special way. We had been talking to Jonas, writer on Year Walk, for a while about doing something Year Walk-related, which wasn’t a game. Naturally, the idea of doing a collection of new folk tales came up quickly.
So, inspired by the stories told in the past in our cold side of the world, and the grim cautionary storybook Der Struwwelpeter, we give you Year Walk Bedtime Stories for Awful Children. In this collection of stories designed to haunt both children and their parents, we have revisited all the creatures from Year Walk and given them one story each, with wonderful illustrations by Johanna Meijer.
Because we think obnoxious children all over the world deserve dark nightmares, we have translated these five gruesome stories into English, French, Spanish, German and Italian. Head over to the site to download the collection for FREE right now:
Five newly written ancient folk tales from the dark woods of Sweden. A free illustrated E-book with grim new stories from the horrific world of Year Walk. Translated to English, French, Spanish, German and Italian. Sweet nightmares!
