There are not many games that I will see from a screenshot and think “this is a game I must play”, Seasons After Fall is one of those games that captivated me from the very beginning with its beautiful art style and cute little fox. The only worry I had is if the gameplay, mechanics and story did not live up to the aesthetic of the video game.
In Seasons After Fall you play a small little fox, guided by a voice who tells you that you need to find the sleeping guardians of the forest and gain control over each season so that you are able to finish a ritual that will help said voice escape the forest. To jump from place to place you’ll need command over each season to be able to complete a variety of different platform based puzzles.
Each season has its own charming and beautiful colour palette that resembles it, winter is a cool blend of blues and purples while autumn is orange and browns with spring being vibrant colours of different greens. The game is able to tell a soft and gentle story backed up by its colours, art style and music.
