It’s the night of the Game Awards and we’ve just had one of those special trailers that makes you sit up and feel rather good about things. The trailer’s for a game called Season, and it was described by the awards host Geoff Keighley as a game about “exploring and recording disappearing cultures.”
A brief trailer suggests a beautiful and melancholic adventure. A young hero rides about on a bike recording unusual wildlife with a notebook and a camera and other appealing gadgets. There’s beautiful lighting, huge skies, ruins, overgrown highways, distant farms and an air of melancholy.
The whole thing’s the work of Scavengers Studio, the team behind the survival/battle royale game Darwin Project. Season is headed for PS5 and it looks wonderful.
