    dkirschner's Year Walk (PC)

    [October 17, 2015 08:53:33 PM]
    This was a neat adventure game playing off Norse (or maybe Swedish specifically) folklore. I will go on record saying that is some terrifying folklore. Or at least the game represents the Brook Horse and the Grim especially scary. The Brook Horse is a pale horse residing near brooks and streams. It lures children onto it's back, and it grows vertebrae to accommodate more and more kids. Then when it's got enough, it drowns them all. The children turn into little lost wailing souls and scream forever. Yikes.

    I'd heard about this when it was just on the app stores and, since I don't really play games on my phone, was excited to buy it as soon as it appeared on Steam. It's a simple adventure game mechanically where you just move in the four cardinal directions, discover locations and things, solve puzzles, and confront and overcome Brook Horse et al. Not really a lot to it. I didn't care for the puzzles, but I did like the story and the aesthetic. Very cool music, and I read that a developer studied horror films to find out how to effectively create jump scares and especially tense moments (there are a few of each).

    When you finish the game, watch after the credits and either watch on YouTube or play the real ending yourself. It adds a chunk of content to the game and makes the story even more interesting. Cool stuff.
