Lake is a narrative-focused adventure game developed and published by Gamious. The year is 1986, and you are Meredith Weiss. With the stress of work taking its toll, you take a break and head back to your childhood town of Providence Oaks. Instead of taking a proper vacation, you decide to help out your dad by temporarily filling his shoes and delivering mail around the charming lake town. Be prepared to relive memories, greet familiar faces, and make new connections with your old community.
Overall, Lake is a down-to-Earth title that highlights finding peace in a familiar place. Both the gameplay and story are easygoing, resulting in a relaxing journey of self-discovery. Although the town is beautiful and offers some engaging characters, it doesn’t inject enough life into it, making the overall experience dull and repetitive. If you need a relaxing and refreshing experience that’ll make you appreciate what’s really important in life, it’s worth dipping your toes into Lake.
The game is available now on Steam, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S|X for $19.99.
