My only complaint? I wish there were more. I loved every minute of heart pounding, puzzle solving, mind-blow inducing minute of Year Walk, but I think I'm spoiled in wanting another few hours from a story that may best be served short and sweet. There's a quality over quantity argument to be made here, but overall I believe Year Walk accomplishes a full, well-paced narrative appropriate for the $5.99 price tag.

Yes, the controls are not at all intuitive, but don't let that keep you away from such a haunting trek in the woods.

Packed with Swedish mythology and tough puzzles, Year Walk is an excellent journey that puts a unique, spooky spin on the familiar adventure video game genre.

Year Walk is a minimalist point-and-click chiller that affectingly and disturbingly strains for meta-fiction.

The beauty of Year Walk is in its discovery, and it's heartening to see a crossover of a more niche mobile title onto the PC platform, especially one which brings such atmosphere and creativity to the fore.

This game masterfully balances simplicity and challenge, engaging the Wii U in a way that will make it rewarding even if you've already played on another device. The utter stillness of the environment keeps you on edge as the macabre creatures of yore add a dose of discomfort or terror when you least expect it.

Year Walk is a two-hour, seven-dollar experience that far transcends both its duration and price tag. It's a can't miss for anyone who appreciates dark, nightmarish, and heady storytelling with a (relatively) historically-accurate mythical slant.

Stylish, succinct and spiritual, Year Walk coins its own genre: the fright of passage.

An excellent conversion of the original iOS hit, and a wonderfully disturbing horror story that innovates in terms of everything from visuals and interface to its macabre narrative.
