Montreal, Canada - September 29, 2022 - Scavengers Studio is overjoyed to announce the first public hands-on opportunity to play their highly-anticipated third-person atmospheric adventure game, SEASON: A letter to the future. During the upcoming Steam Next Fest between October 3rd to 10th, players will explore Estelle’s hometown of Caro and try out the various recording tools used on the journey: a vintage tape recorder, detailed camera, and personal journal. The team has been hard at work polishing every aspect of this melancholic journey, and they are excited for players to have their first experience with the world of Season. Check out the Steam Next Fest trailer for a tease at what you can expect in this demo:
SEASON: A letter to the future is expected to launch on Steam, Epic Games Store, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4 early next year. Earlier this year, Scavengers Studio made the important decision to take the extra time needed in order to offer players a meaningful experience in Season without affecting the team's well-being. Expect to see an official launch date announcement later this year.
“The idea of having people walking around and experiencing the world of SEASON: A letter to the future is exciting and, to be honest, kind of terrifying. We’ve worked hard to make it something unique. Its creation was a long journey and a learning experience for all of us, and I think it took us all by surprise when it started coming together. I hope it will be an even better surprise for those who play it.” - Geneviève Bachand, Lead Artist
High in the mountains, there is a village safe from the turmoil of changing seasons. No one has left in a generation; no one until Estelle. In her world, a season is a period of history, an era. This season is about to end. Riding off into the unknown, she leaves her cozy home to try to capture this moment for the future. Estelle navigates through a strange yet familiar world, witnessing life on the brink of an impending but mysterious change.
The gameplay of Season: A letter to the future focuses on exploring, recording, meeting others, and unraveling the strange world around you. At any point, you can hop off your bike and equip a recording tool from your bag. Each captures a different element; sounds and music, art and architecture, voices of old people, vanishing religious practices, the traces of seasons long past. Your tools help you examine the world more closely until you’re able to grasp the culture, history, and ecology underneath everything.
- A bicycle road trip: Wind your way through stunning landscapes on your bicycle.

- Document, photograph, and record: Collect memories, make recordings, and discover the secrets of the world of Season before it ends.
