Thanks for figuring out VED Wicked!

Only Swedish word I could make with the remaining letters is "torp".

Torp = Croft

Wood croft?


Definition:
noun British
1. a small farm, especially one worked by a tenant.
2. a small plot of ground adjacent to a house and used as a kitchen garden, to pasture one or two cows, etc.; a garden large enough to feed a family or have commercial value.


I think it's talking about the wooden cabin in the trailers?

Vedtorp.se

I found this site a little while back:
vedtorp.se

The text says:
"Welcome to Vedtorp

Vedtorps online meeting place is under construction.
If you have questions about the Vedtorp card or other offers, please contact the civic office.

If you are looking for Vedtorp enthusiast of the month website, click here."

It doesn't give much info, but look at the crest. Looks familiar huh?

This has to be the most riddled game hyping ever done. Wood croft sound like it could be right, considering its definition. You lot are amazing at unravelling the subtlest of clues, I don't know how you're doing it haha.

Great find guys! Sorry I haven't been able to research as much lately as I was away for Holiday. Here's the image on the site and indeed it does like very familiar:



If you recall, they ran with lakewary.com for awhile that turned out to be yearwalk.com so maybe they are doing the same sort of anagram thing here. I used some Scrabble cheaters to try to find a word and I couldn't come up with one. Maybe it is two words. "ved torp" in Swedish means "Wood cottage".

The traditional Swedish cottage is a simple panelled house made by wood and painted in red.

How did you find that site? I can't seem to find anywhere that says it is registered to Simogo, although I have no doubts it is. It was registered in late August.

What does this mean?



medborgarkontoret = "civic office"
vedtorpskortet = "wood croft card"

Civic office is called out on the website.

Simogo just posted this on their latest blog:

"But just because the game (Year Walk) is finished doesn’t mean the project is finished. There is still one part of the Year Walk puzzle missing, and we hope to finish this part up very soon. We won’t talk about it before we can show it to you, so please stay tuned! Anyway, we are definitely in the final stretch of the project. It’s going to be so nice to wrap it up, it’s the most ambitious thing we’ve made!"

BTW, does anyone know how to change the name of this thread?

Sorry! It won't be out in January, but it shouldn't be too long. We don't want to make promises that we can't deliver on, but we will give you a date when we are 100% certain. Thanks for being so patient with us.
