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.
Season: A Letter to the Future is a unique narrative experience, which reminds us how precious every single moment of life is as we face a season on the verge of its end. You will be captured by the atmosphere of the game and it will be difficult to detach yourself until the epilogue; at the same time, however, it is a journey to be played at a slow pace, enjoying the landscape views and the memories left by the characters who have inhabited this world, without the rush to get to the end credits. Kind of how one should live, after all.
A deeply rich sensorial journey into the question of land and identity! A beautiful experiment as well as a manifesto well written to create many exciting moments of discovery through-out the game! A rare and lasting gem for those who seek more than just a superficial ephemeral moments of joy. Highly, recommended!
Season: A Letter to the Future is an emotional narrative adventure that, while it may be a work of fiction, the emotions it will evoke in you are very much real. I loved my experience with it and hope more people give it a chance.
Overall the game is a great indie production and one that will enchant the people who are into games revolving around questions about the meaning of our existence. It is a beautifully crafted walking simulator, with a unique atmosphere and some memorable moments, but no replay value at all.
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 is a delightful snapshot of a world on the precipice of a devastating event. Due to this, there is a somber atmosphere that resides throughout your trip. Recording scenarios through your camera, audio device, and journal builds further understanding of the narrative; however, these three components don’t evolve which makes the gameplay quite repetitive. Although each encounter is distinct and their story is well told, the conclusion stumbles. Despite that, fans of narrative-driven titles should hitch a ride on this unique trip.
Season: a Letter to the Future is strange. When everything works perfectly and you find yourself in front of one of the stupendous landscapes that make it up, which tell long stories without the need for many words, it is a work of art that leaves you speechless. The freedom given to the player to define the shape of Estelle's adventure and literally bring the season's sunset diary to life is a breath of fresh air, but not strong enough to take flight and the story ends up stopping after a few bars, interrupting a speech suddenly, giving the impression of having left something unfinished.
This beautiful game is like a sleepy podcast, plus biking, plus ASMR, plus scrapbooking, plus beautiful photography. I can’t recommend it enough for people who want a narrative game that is extremely chill.
Also, you can pet a goat.
In this world everything is about this WOKE thing right now, thatswhy they want to sell a game with this.WOKE, transgender/crossgender character. The game looks good, but everything else is just a cheap thing.
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 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.
SummaryImmerse yourself in the world of Season, a third-person atmospheric adventure bicycle road trip game. Leave home for the first time to collect memories before a mysterious cataclysm washes everything away. Explore, record, meet people, and unravel the strange world around you.
