Year Walk: A Wonderfully Creepy New iOS Game

Who says iOS doesn’t get some amazing games? Simogo has been putting out some fantastic work on the iPad and iPhone, and with their latest release, Year Walk, I have to say that I am officially a fanboy. Year Walk is centered around Swedish mythology, in which men would wander into the forest of 19th century Sweden in hopes of seeing the future. This “Year Walk” allowed them to see visions… although it appears things are a bit more sinister than they first appear. The art is gorgeous and the sound design top-notch – wear headphones and play in the dark for the full, spine-tingling effect. And don’t forget to download the Companion App too! It may have some important secrets hidden inside it. Watch the trailer below.

Simply put, Year Walk is one of the best games I have played on iOS. The atmosphere is second-to-none, and really shows how bad all those silly “Slender” apps are. If you want something actually unsettling, something that requires you to think a bit, then Year Walk has that in spades. This is a huge change from Simogo’s last game, Beat Sneak Bandit, but I honestly can’t wait to see what they do next.
