“The best part of ten hours of atmospheric, engaging, and immersive brain food. It looks good and delivers enough in its storytelling and puzzle challenge to keep you hungry to experience more.”

“Myst was one game that we were reminded of during our journey, although that isn't the only one we thought of when playing through Lake Ridden...If you've been itching for a puzzle game that marries together an interesting plot with clever riddles, then Lake Ridden is certainly worth a try.”
7/10 – Game Reactor

About This Game

Lake Ridden is a story-driven, first-person puzzle game! A cozy supernatural adventure where you unravel a mysterious past, trying to find your sister. Luckily, you are not alone....

You are Marie, a 13-year-old girl and the year is 1988. The warm summer is giving way to the first signs of autumn. Reluctantly, you join your younger sister and her friends for one last camping weekend in the wilderness of Maine. It was going just great, but the second night by the sizzling campfire, an argument with your sister ended with her running off into the forest. While searching for her, you stumble upon an old forgotten estate.

To solve the mystery, and ultimately find your sister, you must investigate for clues, solve tricky puzzles and communicate with former residents!
