About the Story

In this one-room game, you play as a stressed museum employee taking a break. You're hoping some time at the lake reading and relaxing will help.

A short game with an unique puzzle, March 22, 2023

You, the always dutiful museum employee, have just stumbled upon a meteor. It would make a great addition to your museum. Too bad the meteor is currently too hot to handle…

The Lake is a one-room game centered around one puzzle. The puzzle itself is not difficult to solve, although I will admit that I found the solution to be amusing. However, the lack of detail is the thing that really holds the game back. For example, the titular lake cannot be examined.

The Lake is a very short game centered around one puzzle with a joke solution, and while I will admit that I enjoyed the game, I wish that more time had been put into the descriptions.
