Inspiration Monday #11

I don't know what happened to last Monday...


I am a sucker for well designed anything! And when I heard of this game and saw this video I was happy to pay the six-ish dollars that it was. 

The game is called "Year Walk" - which is named after and based on an old swedish tradition where one would lock themselves inside a dark room with no food for a period of time that I can't remember... Then at the stroke of midnight on a day like New Years Eve, that was the most popular, they would stumble around in the dark - meeting all sorts of mythical creatures, end up at a church and then see what would happen in the year to come - they saw the future.

That was a very rough translation but here is what the makers of the game have to say about it! 

Let me just say that I don't do well with scary ANYTHING! And this game had a bit of that....

Lets just say trying to sleep after finishing the game was a little more difficult than it should have been.

Anyway! I was very inspired by this game and the free companion app you can download as well - which was just as fun as the actual game.

I was so drawn in by the story and the characters - that were based on Swedish Folklore.  

I also took some screen shots on my iPhone as I was playing ....
