Beat Sneak Bandit dev announces freaky first-person adventure Year Walk

Eerie trailer for Simogo's "vision quest" set in 19th century Sweden.

Swedish developer Simogo is known for its cute-as-a-button sqee-a-thons like Beat Sneak Bandit, Bumpy Road and ilomilo - for which it did the art before the two-man studio was formed - but that's all about to change with its upcoming iOS horror game Year Walk, due this winter.

Set in 19th century Sweden, Year Walk is a first-person adventure that revolves around a "vision quest" that "blurs the line between two and three dimensions as well as reality and the supernatural," according to the developer.

You'll have to interact with various objects in the environment to open a rift between our world and "what lies beyond it."

The chilly woodsy setting resembles a mix of Twin Peaks and Puzzle Agent, but it definitely has an original flavour to it that I'm not sure I've seen before. Check out the mesmerising debut trailer below and never look at goats the same way again.
