Modus Games has shared some new gameplay footage for Ary and the Secret of Seasons, a charming 3D adventure with a coming-of-age story following a young girl capable of shifting ecosystems to her will. This footage is narrated by the game’s lead writer, Genese Davis, who walks us through the ways Ary wields the power of seasons to restore order to the land of Valdi. The clip joins the titular youth as she alters the seasons around her through magical spheres, conjuring clusters of icicles and pools of water to help reach new areas and clear tricky puzzles.
We’ve had this one on our radar for some time (you really should be listening to our podcast) because despite looking familiar, Ary and the Secret of Seasons has some potentially brilliant mechanics. The ability to change the seasons in the game, and having that effect the world in the way you’d expect like freezing over water when changing to Winter, is ingenious.
Ary and the Secret of Seasons is launching on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in September 2020.
