Oh, are you still aiming for this winter?

My birthday is Groundhog Day, Feb. 2. There's nothing I'd like more to celebrate it than this... But, totally happy to wait for it. Looks amazing!

I have been anxiously awaiting any updates to vedtorp.se but nothing. It has been a bit quiet on the Simogo front, until 5 mins ago when they posted this:



A while back Apple stopped devs from creating multiple version of games (See: We Rule) so I don't know if this is just a beta thing, a preview of the icon or perhaps a hint that there are two separate versions. Maybe you play each version from a different character's point of view? I don't know. Thoughts?

Simogo just tweeted "that is something that you will learn about soon(ish)" in regards to a question about the two logos above.

Also, on Facebook, a commenter said "left" to which Simogo replied, "But what if you didn't have to choose between them?" This could imply a part 1 and part 2, maybe like Walking Dead?

It also noticed that it seems like they cut off the names of the apps on purpose...

Simogo just posted this on their FB page:

A two dimensional first person adventure / A multi touch short story / A sci-fi horror mystery set in the woods of 19th century Sweden

It appears to be a haiku but may perhaps have some alternative meaning. I will keep thinking about it.

I'd love a two parter! I'd also totally dig those icons if they decided to not have text under them. Adds to the creepiness!

Also, if you look at the two icons cross-eyed at just the right amount, you can see a really trippy third icon in the middle.

Not any deeper meaning. Just throwing around a few possible descriptions of the game!

Simogo just posted a blog post about Year Walk secrets including 3 images of the game. Click here to read. It's long so go read it.

Also, they answered some questions on their FB page, sort of:
  1. When will http://www.vedtorp.se/ be active? - hm?
  2. What's the deal with the question mark in the image of Year Walk on your site? - It is related to the last question
  3. How long of a game is Year Walk? -We cover the length of the game here
  4. Are you planning for YW to have multiple updates or is it meant to be stand alone? - not planning any content updates
  5. What is the secret 2nd big part of Year Walk that you have not been able to talk about yet? - Wait a little longer!

They also give another shout out to the thread here. Thanks guys! Can't wait to play the game and try to find all the secrets you mention in the post and what is up with the two icons. I've enjoyed hunting for the clues so far. Since we're getting closer to the end of this adventure, is there anything we have missed so far?

Since the question mark in the Year Walk image is related to the last question, i.e. their big announcement, maybe we can take a stab at what that might be. The picture is a frame inside a frame. All of their other games are shown in a frame so this leads me to believe that the announcement will be a game contained within Year Walk. What kind of game would be within Year Walk? Maybe there is a meta game where you learn things and then apply it to another game, hence the two icons or two versions of the game? That would be pretty cool actually. Thoughts?

Dammit. Why have I never stumbled on this thread before?
Without the front page article, I'd never have found this thread.
I love solving riddles and jumping around between clues - loved what God of Blades did with the Sword of Welleran. I'm in!

I think it might be some kind of bundle rather than a game within a game; considering a Facebook comment they made regarding the two icon screenshot. Users were picking left/right/black/white and Simogo asked:

"But what if you didn't have to choose between them? HM?"

Maybe a translator or a tool that helps you navigate YW. A decoding tool or logbook to decipher and document the many mysteries YW hides. An alternate reality app perhaps? So you can experience your very own Year Walk? Something to immerse the player even deeper into the YW universe. Like God of Blade's incentive for visiting a library! I can literally expect the unexpected from Simogo.

That's why I'm discarding the ideas of separate iPhone and iPad versions, as well as a lite and a full version...those aren't exactly "big" news..not when it comes to Simogo.
