To put it bluntly, Seasons After Fall is "pleasant." A world with a great feeling experience that tends to knock you out of it when moving around. As much as I appreciate a game as relaxed as this, that relaxation never quite became true enjoyment.

It bears repeating just how beautiful Seasons After Fall is both visually and musically. When paired with the interesting season manipulation mechanic, the result is a highly enjoyable puzzle-platformer that actually requires both physical and mental dexterity to complete. It is not flawless, but the occasional niggles are outweighed by the gorgeous aesthetics and the moments of puzzle solving satisfaction.

Seasons After Fall is an incredibly charming platforming experience. The art style, soundtrack, and overall atmosphere are well done. The powers of the seasons are also great although the puzzles weren’t challenging enough and didn’t utilize them properly. If you feel like having a good time without thinking too much, I would definitely recommend it. However, if you’re looking for a challenge, this might not be the game for you.

Season After Fall is more convincing for its beautiful aesthetics than for its gameplay, but this discrepancy does not make it a title to be underestimated.
