I got this idea while reading the Commonplace Book, searching for something achievable on a short schedule. Something in one particular entry triggered my imagination, and what I make available to you here is pretty much that. I enjoy creating things just as they were conceived in my mind originally--that is, not really questioning too much if it works, if it will be well received, etc.; in general, I get a higher sense of satisfaction if it works, and if it doesn't, there's always next time. In this case, it was almost like a waking dream, and I tried to put that feeling into the game.
Don't expect a gameplay game; this is a short interactive story, if you will. It's not a text game, either! It's very brief, so I hope you enjoy the few minutes it will take you to finish it.Download The Lake v1.0

It's version 1.0 because I might make some fixes or improvements before the deadline, but if I don't have the time, I still consider this version finished.
It was made in Construct during most of Saturday, Monday and Tuesday, so it's a 3 day game, I guess. The music I started making before, though, and the idea had been gestating since before that, but not much else got done.
