One year ago an Swedish indie game developer named Simogo released an iOS mobile title called Year Walk. The odd, horror-ish game was unlike almost any other mobile game at the time, combining first person exploration, puzzle solving, and a bit of surrealism.
The game went on to be a small cult hit among indie game fans, and now Simogo will be bringing the title to today’s largest indie game platform. The developer today announced that Year Walk will be released for PC through Steam on March 6.
Year Walk is set in 19th century Sweden and puts players through the experience of an ancient Swedish practice called year walking. Players will roam through the woods during their vision quest, encountering odd animals, puzzles, and even the supernatural.
Simogo will be adding extra content for the Steam release of Year Walk. The studio is promising new updated art, a map, a hint system, steam achievements, and an integrated version of the Year Walk companion app that was released alongside the mobile game.
