Lake is a beautiful narrative driven adventure about a woman who escapes the rat race to return to her hometown and become a mail carrier for a couple of weeks.
Taking place in 1986, Lake follows the story of Meredith, a successful forty-something career-woman who returns from the city to spend some time in her rural hometown. She’ll be there for two weeks and during that time she’ll fill in for her father as a mail carrier.
As Meretith delivers mail and explores the idyllic town she’ll meet lots of familiar places and strangers. All the characters Meridith meets have their own personalities and quirks, and may even befriend them or spark up a romance.
After work she’ll also be able to do a variety of different activities, such as hanging out with friends, assisting neighbors or just settling down with a good book. As in Tell Tale games, Lake promises no “right” and “wrong” decisions, and your choices will affect how the story plays out and whether you decide to go back to the city or stay in your hometown.
It’s a very unique concept for a game that looks set to offer a relaxed low-stakes slice-of-life experience with lots of interesting characters to meet. The beautiful rustic setting looks like a wonderfully chilled out place to unwind in. Even after just watching the trailer you’ll find it hard to imagine why anyone would want to go back to the city!
