    Seasons After Fall is a gorgeous year-round romp through the forest that will pull at the heartstrings on more than one occasion. Every season brings fun and different dynamics to the game, complemented superbly by the soundtrack. Some puzzles and load times may frustrate, but they’re not enough to detract from the overall charm and enjoyment of the game.

    Seasons after Fall is a good adventure with a gorgeous art style.

    Seasons after Fall has definite artistic merit even if this comes at the expense of gameplay. The animation and graphics are truly wonderful to look at, and the voice work and music tie everything together but, the repetition in the puzzles and copious amounts of backtracking means, it is not as fun to play as it is to look at.

    Seasons After Fall is a beautiful game to look at and listen to but it can often be tedious to play due to its insistence on repeated backtracking and general lack of guidance. There are some endearing moments throughout its confusing story but the amount of running back and forth between them makes it questionable whether they're worth the effort of uncovering.

    Seasons After Fall has its share of issues, but it has enough going for it that there is an audience out there that will gain some enjoyment from it. The game's production values are top notch, so if you can look past the game's problematic level design and simplistic gameplay then you may find it to be a very serene and immersive experience. It is a shame that those issues exist though, because the game's mechanics show some terrific potential. There are scattered moments when all of the game's elements -- its atmosphere, its gameplay, and its graphics -- come together to provide some memorable experiences. In the end though, the story in Seasons After Fall is too vague and confusing to be satisfying, and a game's graphics and music can only carry it so far. There is more than enough art in this package, but there is not enough game.

    To put it bluntly, Seasons After Fall is "pleasant." A world with a great feeling experience that tends to knock you out of it when moving around. As much as I appreciate a game as relaxed as this, that relaxation never quite became true enjoyment.

Finding all the flowers and mysteries can be tricky, but the unique atmosphere made me love this journey very much. As a fox, player can explore various landscapes and levels in order to find 4 season Guardians. As for such a small story it is suprisingly deep and broad thematically. This game really reminds me of books like "The little prince" or "Pax" with its stylistic choices and certain way of storytelling. This game is special and I highly recommend it! Expand

    Seasons After Fall,
    The visual aspect of the game is awe inspiring and the music is breathtaking. I enjoy the music with great alacrity, so I have started working on a guitar cover for one of the songs. Throughout the game, you feel captured in a world of fantasy and beauty. I feel the need to just take a moment to look around and see everything and take it in. And the fact that they made the game available in many different languages makes a difference. The soundtrack for the game is now even available on 2 vinyl records. I would thoroughly enjoy another installment of Seasons After Fall, but the lack of advertisement has brought the game down since its release. The story of the game is easy to follow and the game lets you roam around and explore the world and its beautiful aesthetics. In conclusion, it is a work of art, and the time it took to make was truly worth the awe-inspiring moments I experienced.

    Seasons After Fall
    A beautiful game with too much repeating.
    Season afterfall is a metroidvania styled 2d puzzle platformer where you play a seed that takes control of a fox..
    you use this fox to platform to the different season guardians for their power,
    once you reach them, you use your newly acquired powers to get back and go for the next…
    Your powers are changing the seasons..
    As you change the season the items in the environment change, plants will die or come to life..
    you can even stack effects like adding water to a guizer to freeze it when its taller for example…
    The first half of this 6 hour game is great, the world is beautiful,
    there a nice voice telling you the story of the guardians, the seasons, and reminding you where oyu should be going if you get lost,,
    the puzzle platforming is fun, and fluent…
    running through these levels as a fox feels freeing…
    And then the game just goes on repeat..
    you have to go back to these sections 2 more times to get to the end game..
    sure seeing different sections to these levels.. but this is where the puzzles start piling on and the game starts feeling like a chore..
    ruining the initial freeing feeling this game gives..
    Not to say the game gets bad..
    it just gets more stressful and its no fun to go through locations you’ve already been to even if you have new powers this time or things are a little different…
    It just made me miss the first few hours of the game that much more
    Seasons After Fall starts out great and had potential to be one of my favorites of the year,
    but the 2nd half drags it down big time and feels almost like a completely different game
    It takes a great game and makes it just almost great…
    The game would’ve greatly benefitted to completely different paths for the 2nd half rather than retracing a lot of your steps and essentially activating switches
    I give Seasons After Fall
    a 7.5/10
