Lake Ridden may not be doing anything new or incredibly exciting, but it still feels unique.

Lake Ridden tells a compelling story and presents many good and complex riddles, but the game rhythm is very, very slow. Right now, there is no support for the pad.

A mystery game with some obtuse puzzles set in a beautiful world, worth looking at but be prepared to look up a guide for help with some of the puzzles.

On the surface, Lake Ridden does not appear much different from other adventure games. But it doesn't take long to see the flaws: a confusing narrative, busywork tasks, fetch quests, and a depressing and dreary world. The handful of good puzzles are simply not enough.

Lake Ridden tries to do many things at the same time, by putting elements of horror, comedy, mystery and drama in the mix that ultimately neither lead anywhere nor satisfy anyone.

Lake Ridden is quite nice example of first game of new indie studio done right. It looks great and is fun to play. Puzzles are quite though and act more as an interruption in our walks rather than challenging mechanic to test your wits. Pleasant game nonetheless.

Lake Ridden is a short, story-driven game with a spooky, supernatural vibe. The puzzles range from just the right amount of difficulty to being way too hard. The story has moments of interest, but not enough keep me engaged throughout the entire playthrough.

Lake Ridden is an enjoyable experience. Despite the lack of fleshing out the story is a fulfilling one; the puzzles are unique and interesting despite the rather strange solutions and iffy helps system; and the manor house and its surrounding buildings brilliantly designed and sensibly reused.
