The beautifully animated adventure game, Seasons after Fall, recently came out PS4 and Xbox One. To compliment the excellent visuals, the soundtrack was a celebration of strings in symphonic form. Luckily, developer Swing Swing Submarine and Bandcamp are making the OST available on classic vinyl form and preorders are now up. The cost of the preorder is €30 (approx $33 USD) plus shipping costs and will ship out on November 16, 2017. The digital version of the soundtrack can be purchased now from Bandcamp for €7 (approx $8 USD).
For those who haven’t heard of the game, Seasons after Fall concerns a wild fox exploring a magical land where the seasons can be controlled by those with the power (i.e. you). There are several animal guardians protecting the world. As always, their powers will help you get through the world. Can you outsmart the Bear, or silence the Cicada, or capture the slippery Eel? And are they friend or foe?
As the developer states on the game’s Steam page:
“The power of nature is in your paws as you make your journey across this mysterious world full of strange flora and fauna. Each of the seasons have a drastic change on the environment: it is up to you to change the world and open new paths. Winter can freeze waterfalls, and the rain from Spring can raise water levels, while Summer can cause some plants to grow and extend. The world of Seasons After Fall is overflowing with secrets, can you uncover the truth?”
While Seasons after Fall has been out since September 2016 on PC, the console versions are brand new. However, the price has remained the same at $14.99 for all three platforms. As for the soundtrack, you can listen to each of the tracks for free via Bandcamp if you want to know what sounds you’re about to purchase.
Personally, the immediacy and fury of ‘Second Nightmare’ and the silent mystery behind ‘Fireflies’ are two of my favorite tunes. It just makes me wish the songs were longer and that my wallet was deeper.
