The game was featured in the Nindies@Home program in June.

In the meantime you can indulge yourself in the PC version.
If you’re wondering which platform to play Year Walk on, Wii U is probably your best bet. According to developer Simogo, the upcoming Wii U version is the best iteration of the adventure title.

Year Walk arrives on Wii U via the Nintendo eShop on September 17.
“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,” Simogo’s Simon Flesser said in a recent interview. “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 Rhod from Dakko Dakko, we like to design for specific platforms or specific interfaces.”
