Players will record “the last moments of different cultures before they’re washed away” by a cataclysmic event. “You are not there to stop the change but to bear witness to it, to make recordings and attempt to understand what is being lost before it’s gone,” creative director Kevin Sullivan wrote on the PlayStation Blog.
Sullivan likened the overall mission to “making a time capsule, deciding what would capture the spirit of the time period and carry it onwards.”

Most memorable about Season’s debut trailer was its art direction, which Sullivan describes as a “minimalist approach to realism.” The style is inspired by “early Japanese woodblock print artists, as well as mid-20th century poster artists” and was guided by the principle of “getting rid of rather than adding details.”
