Odysseasons is a story of a lonely worm on an alien planet with a mission to save its species by traveling through the perils of 4 seasons (levels). The theme is expressed through both gameplay and setting. It also connects the concept of seasons with passage of time and growth. As the main character goes through the seasons, so it grows and gains new abilities, and levels are designed in that way to challenge the player to exploit these new abilities.
