Reviews

“Lake's atmosphere is sublime throughout, helped by strong voice acting with Meredith being one of the more memorable, fully-fleshed out video game characters to arrive this year.”
Recommended – Eurogamer

“Lake has genuine human interactions, a bright visual art style that is like a balm for the soul, and a no-stress approach to story-telling. You’re guaranteed to come out of it a more relaxed human being after playing it.”
4/5 – WindowsReport

“The game is one of the most refreshing stand-outs of this year, and I don’t think it’d be fair to say that I like it, because it wouldn’t be true. I love it.”
5/5 – Gayming Magazine

About This Game

It's September 1, 1986. You take on the role of forty-something Meredith Weiss, who returns from the big city to her quiet hometown. She exchanges her busy career at a software company to fill in for her dad, the local mail carrier.

During her two-week stay in beautiful Providence Oaks, Oregon, she runs into a few familiar faces as well as plenty of new folk. As Meredith, you get to decide who to talk to, who to befriend and perhaps even start a romantic relationship with.

Whatever happens, at the end of her stint she'll have to make up her mind: return to her demanding job in the big city, or stay in the town she grew up in?

Play Lake and…

  • Escape to a beautiful, rustic environment without cellphones and the Internet.
  • Drive around the lake in your dad's trusty mail truck, or let the auto-pilot do the work.
  • Talk to a range of engaging characters, each with their own personalities and quirks.
  • Choose after-work activities: hang out with your friends, help out your neighbours or stay home and read a book.
  • Experience two weeks of branching story that doesn't shy away from slice-of-life themes.
  • Determine your own story: there are no 'right' or 'wrong' answers or endings, simply what you want to happen.
