Back at E3, I got the opportunity to check out some really cool games being published by Modus Games. One was the beautiful RPG Cris Tales, and another was the colorful and creative Ary and the Secret of Seasons. It reminded me of a Zelda-styled game where you wander about, fighting giant monsters and using tools to progress. One of the best tools at your disposal in Ary, however, is manipulation of the elements themselves. I watched Ary freeze some water to scale icicles in one boss fight, and the scale of the game looks truly epic. Which is why it’s exciting that today Modus and developer eXiin revealed an overview trailer for Ary and the Secret of Seasons, which is slated to release on PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One this summer.
You can check out the trailer below, as well as the full press release. If you’re a fan of indies with unique mechanics, I’d make sure to put this game on your radar. It has a lot of potential.
Ary and the Secret of Seasons Releases New Overview Trailer
Bend Seasons to Your Will this Summer
Walnut Creek, Calif. (Feb 26, 2020) – Indie publisher Modus Games and developer eXiin today announced Ary and the Secret of Seasons, the upcoming action adventure following a young girl’s courageous journey to mend her world’s disrupted seasons, will release this summer on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Steam.
A new trailer accompanied today’s announcement, demonstrating protagonist Aryelle’s incredible ability to influence her surroundings by conjuring miniature seasonal biomes of spring, summer, autumn, and winter. This skill proves invaluable in her quest, allowing her to uncover secrets, slip aside once-impassable obstacles, and gain crucial advantages in battle.
In Ary and the Secret of Seasons, Ary accepts a calling her father is unable to answer, embarking in his place to resolve a sudden disparity between the once perfectly balanced seasons within the land of Valdi. Creating chasm-clearing platforms and aiding Valdi’s exasperated citizens is just the beginning for the potential carried in Ary’s power, which supports a sense of limitless discovery throughout the heroine’s engrossing story.
