If you’re in the mood for a more relaxing change of pace compared to other pew-pew games on the market right now, then Dutch developer Gamious may have the game for you. Indeed, its latest title, Lake, is a heartwarming coming-of-age romantic drama set in the picturesque rural town of Providence Oaks, Oregon.
What’s cool, though, is that Lake now has a confirmed release date of September 1 for Xbox Series X|S and PC, so if you’ve had your eye on it, it’s not long now before you can get your mitts on it. Thankfully, those who want to check Lake out on other platforms, like Nintendo Switch or PlayStation, all is not lost as the studio has announced that the game will be coming to other platforms at a later date.
From the looks of things, Lake appears to take a few thematic and aesthetic cues from other narrative adventure games like Life Is Strange and Where The Heart Leads. A colorful cast of characters, lots of branching stories, a multitude of dialogue choices and a calming atmosphere are the order of the day in Lake. Oh, and it’s also set in the ’80s, which automatically makes everything cooler, right?
For a taster of what you can expect, here’s Lake’s most recent story trailer:
And here’s a rundown of the game courtesy of the developer’s latest press release:
Gamious and Whitethorn Games announce their upcoming slice-of-life interactive story game Lake will launch September 1st on Xbox Series X|S, as well as Steam for Windows PC!
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 folk. 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 to make up her mind: return to her demanding job in the big city, or stay in the town she grew up in?
