Bedtime Stories for Awful Children

In the summer of 2015, 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, that wasn’t a game. The idea of doing a collection of new folk tales came up quickly. Inspired by the stories told in the past in our cold side of the world, and the grim cautionary storybook Der Struwwelpeter, we created a small e-book called “Year Walk Bedtime Stories for Awful Children”. In this collection of stories designed to haunt both children and their parents, we revisited all the creatures from Year Walk and gave them one story each, with wonderful illustrations by Johanna Meijer, who had previously made the airprint illustrations for The Sailor’s Dream.
