This Season Is A Season For The “Season”



GamingBolt. ©. Jan. 13, 2021.

If you want an atmospheric adventure game where you live vicariously through a playable character on a bicycle, face your eyes on an indie game called “Season.” You can document, photograph, and record on your journey. Meet new people and learn about life before a great cataclysm occurs. Developed by Scavenger Studios, (which also brought you Darwin Project,” “Season” will be released on PS5 (PlayStation 5) and PC. That’s right. So far, there’s still no exact release date for “Season,” but the release date is listed as “Coming Soon.”

The indie game “Season” has the type animation, that can make you fall asleep, sleeping like a baby. Not out of boredom would you fall asleep, but after being so content with the beauty of the animated graphics, hearing the pleasing voice overs, and piano background music. It’s a fantasy gamy where the future is uncertain, but the rumor is there’s a cataclysm going to occur. It’s a somewhat relatable feeling. 

According to Twitter, Canada-based Scavenger Studios has approximately 30 employees, which means there’s extra work they have to do. Had it been a huge team, they could’ve been released the game, but let’s be patient. On the Season Development Blog, you have access to know a little bit about the team.

In “Season,” life is short and you can ride your bike, navigating to different locations. Learn about different societies and talk to different in a fantasy world. It’s a game about trying to understand life before it’s gone, which is a sadly realistic moral people can learn from. 

Whether you’ll encounter having a flat tire, if the controller will vibrate during accidental crashes, it’s unknown. The beauty of the animation alone is enough to buy it, but some of us are picky with game while others collect all of them. 

There’s still a lot we don’t know about “Season,” but what we do know is the main character riding on a bicycle is a female character of black descent. She will have access retro technology, including to a pen and paper. We know there will be piano music, which is effective to make us feel sad. 

In the trailer of “Season,” a voice over says, “Our grandparents lived for a thousand years. And our parents had a century to themselves. But us, we have one season.” Those words are powerful. If you have the option to do good or bad things before the cataclysm isn’t know. We don’t know yet if the cataclysm can occur at any time you play the game, which would determine if the character died a bad or good person. There’s many questions we have about the video game, but it has our attention. 

What we know is that you, as the playable character will be documenting, photographing, drawing, and recording life. The drawing option is what’s interesting. There’s already animation softwares in real life, so if there’s an option to control the creation process of a full drawing, you’ll feel more accomplished about your day. It’s a digital drawing within a digital world. You probably look at your past artwork via video game, that is, until the cataclysm comes. 

The game has a surreal appearance with the vibes of the mid-twentieth century and your journey as the character is to find out why the world is collapsing. We can tell you that the game should be a peaceful one, expected to arguably have some poetry in it as well. It’s suitable for all ages because what child haven’t heard that the world will end one day? Once you get your hands on this game, it may be a game you’ll never forget.
