Publisher Whitethorn Games and developer Gamious have announced the release of their interactive story game, Lake, on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on April 8th, 2022. The tweet making the announcement also has a PlayStation trailer accompanying it.
Additionally, a physical edition of the game will be released by Perp Games at a later date.
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 folks. 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 a make up her mind: return to her demanding job in the big city, or stay in the town she grew up in?
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 neighbors, or stay home and read a book.
Determine your own story: there are no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ answers or endings, simply what you want to happen.
Lake is already available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (via Steam and Epic Game Store) as of September 1st, 2021. You can read our review during your short wait for the game.
