It looks like this Winter our iDevices will be graced with a new Simogo title which delves into the dark and creepy. The studio’s fourth title, Year Walk, is a 2D first-person adventure game in which the player is on a “vision quest set in 19th century Sweden”.
The trailer, which resembles a prison camp brainwashing video, is full of quick flashing images of goats, a heart, and various other seemingly non-related images, set to creepy music. It raises more questions than answers, but whatever it is, it doesn’t appear to be a game I’ll be playing with my 5 year-old (like Bumpy Road).
I have no idea really what to expect, but my interest is certainly peaked.
Here is the full description sent to us by the folks at Simogo:
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.
