Rottenwood Lake is a very creepy PS1 styled fishing horror game where you get more than you bargain for as you go for a fishing trip in a cursed lake.
Created for the Haunted PS1 Wretched Weekend game jam, Rottenwood Lake sees you taking a little boat out for a fishing trip on a cursed lake. Initially it’s quite a pleasant and peaceful place to go fishing (possibly because nobody else is dumb enough to fish there), and after catching a few fish you decide to go further out into the cenre of the lake to where all the big fish are. But that’s when the shit hits the fan and you find yourself trapped in a mysterious place with the remains of a cultist church. You’ll have to gather three skulls to escape, but it’s not going to be easy…
Rottenwood Lake delivers a great little fusion of fishing and horror. The audio and visual design are excellent, and the lore of the cursed lake is pretty interesting. There’s an eerie and unsettling calm to the lake, but it’s when that calm is broken that you really start to panic! A fright-filled fishing trip that’ll get you hooked.
