Lake Ridden reviews and comments

Product received for free Beautiful told Story with very appealing graphics. The Puzzles are partly right to run out of Hair, but then when you have solved them (or solved them together with Help) the Relief is correspondingly great. If one does not move forward, one can give yourself clues, which are given in many Gradations (from very "superficial" tips to detailed ones).

Beautiful discovery adventure. Of course, I have to mention Myst as an old Fan. But it's something completely its own. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1385196632 Moody But not a Horror game like Among the Sleep. The Puzzles are arranged in a linear way and (so far) relatively simple. But it's about the fun Of The game itself. Overall, I give very good Marks so far. Not perfect, but very good. The voice acting is good (actually very good, but just not quite as emotional), the Music is good (nice in the Background, only gets somewhat repetitive in one or two Places), the Graphics are apt (somewhat monotonous part), the Story is ... Quite ok so far, don't know exactly how it develops, could be genre typical, or something completely different, let's look.

Product received for free Lake Ridden is a Game I had little expectation of at first, except that the Graphics are very beautiful. We slip into the Role of Marie and seek out our Sister who has disappeared after an Argument. In Search of her, we discover an abandoned Property and gradually find out more about the history of the Property. The Graphics in this Game are just gorgeous and the Game ran on my PC also fluid. The Puzzles were sometimes a bit heavy and you had to bony more often. If you still didn't get to the Solution, luckily there were Walkthroughs that helped you well. I also like the Story very much, although in the End I am a bit confused and some Things were left open. All in all, I can really only recommend this Game!

Even before the Release, I (as a big Fan of the Myst series) was very excited about Lake Ridden. And I have to say that the Game still exceeded my Expectations. The beautiful Graphics and the corresponding Music create a mystical, eerie Atmosphere. Nevertheless, the Focus is on the Puzzles and The discovery of the Story, so that the Game does not have jump care or Time Pressure. The Difficulty of the Puzzles (for Example compared To the Myst series) is not too high but still demanding, so that you have to think a little in some Places, but you don't have to deal with the same thing for hours. The slightly supernatural Story is as lovingly Crafted as the Rest of the Game, making Lake Ridden one of the best puzzle adopters I've ever played for me. For me, one of the best Games of 2018.
