From Press Release:
Today, Whitethorn Games — publisher of inclusive, accessible, easy-going games, including APICO, Calico, Lake, and Wytchwood — and developer Gamious are excited to announce that the long-awaited Lake prequel holiday-themed DLC, Lake: Season’s Greetings, will be coming to PC, Xbox and PlayStation 4 and 5, November 15, 2023! To celebrate this announcement, Gamious has revealed a closer look at the story players will unravel in Season’s Greetings.
Make this a December to remember! Lake: Season’s Greetings takes place during 1985’s holiday season, one year before the original Lake game. Players take on the role of Thomas Weiss, an amiable mail carrier and father to Lake’s protagonist, Meredith Weiss. Changing the perspective from Meredith to her father, players will gain an understanding of the Weiss family dynamics and an insight into a snow-covered Providence Oaks from a long-time resident’s point of view. Not only will players learn more about the familiar faces they have grown to love from the main story, but Season’s Greetings introduces five completely new characters to the town of Providence Oaks, each with their very own storylines. The DLC will also provide more background to some unanswered questions that were teased in Lake. Following the ideals of the base game, Season’s Greetings will continue to focus on slice-of-life themes and relaxing vibes, this time embedded in a comfy holiday setting. So curl up with some hot cocoa and a copy of Season’s Greetings because it isn’t Christmas until Thomas Weiss has delivered the holiday cheer.
Key features of Lake: Season’s Greetings include:
- Travel back to 1985 and discover what Providence Oaks was like before Meredith through her father’s eyes during the winter holiday.
- Enjoy a variety of after-work activities that include hanging with friends, staying in for a night of television, and going out like it’s 1985.
- Experience a branching story that doesn’t shy away from slice-of-life themes. Like life, there are no right or wrong answers.
