When you first pick up Year Walk, “peaceful” and “serene” are two words that may pop into your head. You find yourself in a quaint, Swedish forest in the winter, with snowflakes falling, the wind gently whispering, and ‘barely there’ atmospheric tones.

The odd sense of warm security you feel in a chilly setting is misplaced, however. Despite the calming, ambiguous way Year Walk opens, your character’s goal to eventually see into the future by partaking in a ‘vision quest’ takes a few disconcerting turns.

What I’m trying to say is that this game is going to rustle your jimmies.

Year Walk has launched on a couple of platforms already, but next month, it will debut on Wii U. Simogo co-founder Simon Flesser told Nintendo World Report that he feels it’s the best version of the game.

Flesser said:

“All versions of the game have specific things I like about them, but I think the Wii U version is the best version for me. If you didn’t know about the PC or iOS versions, you’d think ‘this is such a Wii U game’. Me and Magnus from Simogo and Rob from Dakko Dakko, we like to design for specific platforms or specific interfaces.”

Year Walk will incorporate motion controls on Wii U, and the GamePad essentially turns into a censor. Flesser spoke about this decision decision, noting:

“We wanted it to feel as fresh and new as possible, and we didn’t want a simple put it on the GamePad and add touch controls – we wanted it to feel new. Rob proposed because on the PC version you use the mouse to look around and control the pointer, obviously you don’t have a pointer with the GamePad and we didn’t want to do the simple touch. Rob from Dakko Dakko came up with the idea of motion controls to control the cursor, then everything fell into place because you have natural motion interactions with all the different gadgets you find in the world.”

Year Walk will be hitting the Wii U eShop on September 17.
