Malmö, Sweden – September 4, 1902 – From the makers of Beat Sneak Bandit and Bumpy Road, comes an iOS project continuing a tradition of folklore storytelling of mythical creatures and the supernatural - Simogo is proud to announce Year Walk.
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.
Simogo was founded in 2010 by Simon Flesser and Magnus ”Gordon” Gardebäck and is based in Malmö, Sweden. In December 2010 they released their first iOS game, Kosmo Spin. In May 2011 Bumpy Road was released. It has sold over 170,000 copies since then.
