Valdi, a world divided into four regions, has one specific climate for each region related to the four seasons. Balance and peace of Valdi was threatened by an evil mage 1,000 years ago. The mage was eventually defeated by the Legendary Warrior. The Legendary Warrior then sealed the mage inside the tomb placed in the very heart of the Dome of Seasons. The Guardians of Seasons were then formed to protect the Dome. Each Guardian owns a medallion that provides them with the power to control one season. For generations, Guardians of Seasons passed their knowledge from father to son.
You play as Ary, the impulsive daughter of Gwenn, the Guardian of Winter. A tragic accident befalls Ary’s brother and prevents his succession to her father’s role as Guardian of Winter. Ary then finds herself stepping up and, for the first time in centuries, a girl has become the new guardian. The Season Spheres are local zones where another season appears inside. Ary can now open up to 3 of them at the same time. For example, within the same area, Ary can jump from winter to summer.
