Simogo is an iOS developer best known for games that are a cartoony and fun, like the great Beat Sneak Bandit and the charming Bumpy Road. But the company’s next title is going to take a much darker turn, apparently. Year Walk is Simogo’s next project, and as you can see above, this game looks neither cartoony or fun.
Year Walk is set on a New Year’s Eve in 19th century Sweden, as the player is tasked with exploring some dark woods to try and solve a mystery. The game’s teaser trailer sets the tone about right: There will be puzzles and exploration involved, all with a very creepy, atmospheric black-and-white feel.
Like I said, different from Bumpy Road. The title also has a companion app coming with it, that will fill in players on a lot of the folk lore and backstory that support the game’s setting and various creatures. Year Walk looks very interesting. It should be available, according to Simogo, on the App Store on February 21, so we’ll look for it next week.
Simogo’s latest, Year Walk, coming to iOS next week originally appeared on TUAW – The Unofficial Apple Weblog on Fri, 15 Feb 2013 17:00:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
