Reviews

“Once in Flowerlake is a game to pass a few hours with. It may be on the short side as to playtime but the price point reflects this. I do think the game could have some dark tones added to it so the main character can be seen a little more clearly and adjust the text so it can be read without the player having to climb into the screen. There are a few twists and turns in the plot that keep you hooked to push on to see its conclusion.”
I Like It – LadiesGamers

“Once in Flowerlake is an atmospheric game for people with patience, and I genuinely mean that in the nicest possible way. It portrays individual components well, such as stagnant routine, temporary friendships, a foreign world, and what trudging through snow feels like, but all of these elements mixed together get in each other’s way at times. If you feel to your core that life is about the journey, not the destination, Once in Flowerlake is a tiny yet tantalizing tale worth playing through.”
3/5 – Hey Poor Player

About This Game

You will have to live through a brief moment in the life of a nameless man, who found himself in the middle of a cold world and was stuck in a routine job. One day an event happened in the man's life that changed the whole further course of his life and his views on what he was doing all the time after waking up...

Features:
  • An unhurried story, invented by one man, with a finale that will leave you with food for thought.
  • Once In Flowerlake is a non-violent game, with no need to shoot or kill anyone.
  • The presence of moments where the player's choices affect what happens next.
  • Nice visual style and atmosphere of the cold, winter world.
  • Atmospheric soundtrack to keep the right mood.

Important note: the game was created by one person, so it can not offer a long duration. On average, it takes an hour and a half to get through the game. It's important to me that you know this before you buy, so you won't be disappointed about it afterwards. Thank you for your understanding!
