Publisher Modus Games and developers eXiin and Fishing Cactus have announced the official release date of their upcoming title Ary and the Secret of Seasons. The game will launch on Steam and consoles at the start of September. According to the FAQ on the game’s official website, this is a delay from the game’s initial release date of July 28.
Ary and the Secret of Seasons is an action-adventure game starring Ary, the Guardian of Winter, and the first girl to join the Guardians of Seasons. She has the power to manipulate the seasons in different ways. Each season wields different powers, which Ary and the player will have to master to make it through the world of Valdi.
Valdi was once threatened by an evil mage, but was defeated by the Legendary Warrior. The mage was sealed away in the Vault, with intentions for it to be forever. The land was split into four regions representing all four seasons, which were protected by the Guardians.
The world of Valdi is once again under threat. It’s up to Ary to help as a Guardian of Seasons and find out the source behind the trouble. With Ary’s powers, she can defeat enemies, avoid obstacles, and solve complex powers. Along the way, she’ll find out the secret plots and survive the traditions to bring peace to her home once again.
