    Season is a phenomenal work, not just the classic little pearl, but an all-round videogame experience capable of excite, tell, immerse us in the last moments of a reality that could end, change, mutate. A memorization and movement mechanism within towns, villages and glimpses of nature of disarming beauty.

    If you can find some time out of your busy everyday life to step into the world of SEASON: A letter to the future, then I highly beckon you to do so. Scavengers Studio has created a beautiful work of art that captures powerful motifs of humanity and themes of preservation. After all, it’s the memories we choose to remember that really matter in the end.

    Season: A Letter to the Future allows players to roam a valley marked by its past and populated by a handful of unforgettable characters. The humanity on the verge of abandoning Tieng Valley is full of dreams and has stories of love and loss to tell. Scavengers Studio manufactures an invite to meditation and a hymn to human bonds and nostalgia that is also a celebration of the capability to become independent and strive forth without fear, on board a bicycle that sets a new standard for the use of DualSense's features.

    As Estelle pieces together her scrapbook made by my hand, I often found myself asking why I took a particular image, what I liked about a specific sound. What memories or feelings was I conjuring, even subconsciously, that led me to present Estelle's world in the ways I did, and what did that say about how I see my own world? Season asks a lot of introspective questions, provides few definitive answers, and hopes players are willing to breathe it in, consider it carefully, then exhale slowly as they reflect on both the game and themselves. It's unconventional even in a sea of indies that are constantly trying new weird things, but it works.

    Season: A letter to the future has style to spare and some captivating story elements. Exploring its little world is rewarding, but it's so frictionless as to lack the drama of other exploration-focused games like The Witness or Journey.

    Season's ability to tell small human stories is admirable amidst its calming gameplay, even if it doesn't fully explore its big talking points.

    As it turned out Season: A Letter to the Future was nothing more than just another forgettable indie title. Even if gorgeous trailers made you think otherwise.

    Affirming that this game is beautiful is redundant but I can't avoid it: what a marvelous visual delight! Gameplay is great, story and scriptAffirming that this game is beautiful is redundant but I can't avoid it: what a marvelous visual delight! Gameplay is great, story and script are touching and heart warming. The soundtrack is simply amazing! This is a game to enjoy the ride, reflect about life and philosophize about existence. I couldn't recommend it more. Expand

Heavy and light, sentimental and restrained, slow and gone-too-soon, Season is an extraordinary balancing act, a masterclass in tone. The game asks a lot of the player in certain ways, and very little in other ways. It pushes several aspects of the video game medium very far, and leaves others untouched. It's a game that I will be thinking about for a long time. Expand

    I'm not sure what the developers were thinking but they've made some terrible design choices for this game. It could have been really good butI'm not sure what the developers were thinking but they've made some terrible design choices for this game. It could have been really good but instead the devs focused on other things instead of good gameplay and story. The character is very poorly written and portrayed. There are some game breaking bugs here as well which are hopefully fixed in later versions. If you were looking for an entertaining and immersive title, look elsewhere. There are many better games out there that deserve your hard earned dollars and spare time. Expand
