Creepy Indie Puzzler Year Walk is Making its way to Wii U

by on July 14, 2015

Simogo have teamed up with Dakko Dakko to bring their acclaimed creepy iOS puzzle game, Year Walk, to Wii U.

For those unfamiliar to Year Walk, it’s a puzzle game / walking simulator that has you moving around the environments solving little puzzles in a spooky wood in 19th century Sweden.

It is a quite unsettling experience I can assure you, but one that is very much worth playing. And here it is coming to Wii U and making use of the second screen afforded by the gamepad.

New features in this version include:

  • A gameworld which bleeds from the TV screen into our world through the Wii U GamePad. Play the game on the TV, and use the screen in your hands to study a mysterious encyclopedia, an ancient map, take notes and more.
  • Tactile and satisfying motion controls which let players twist, pull, and push the curious contraptions and creatures of the forest.
  • Inventive riddles using the many features of the Wii U console and the GamePad, including the touch screen, speakers, and even elements from outside the game.

I’m intrigued enough to be considering giving the game another go. Despite the fact that I know there are a couple of points that are not nice to witness.

Check out the rather disturbing trailer below.
