Last month we reported that the upcoming spook-fest Year Walk would get a February release and now we're pleased to say that Simogo will hit that deadline. The official date that Year Walk will be ambling into the App Store is February 21st, which is just under a week away! There will also be an additional guide for the game, Year Walk Companion, that will launch at the same time along with the main title.
Year Walk Companion will be a reference book for the game, with details that provide more background for the lore and superstitions that are in the main game.
If you've missed our previous coverage on Year Walk, well ... shame on you. But here's the quick and dirty summary, straight from Simogo:
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.
We can't wait to give this one a try, especially considering that Simogo's other titles look nothing like this one. It's a big, creative departure for the developer and we think it's going to be one of the more critically acclaimed titles of the year. Look for our review next week!
