The Lake


An ultra-minimalist rowing adventure. Indiegames blog pointed me to The Lake (5mb). There's really not much to it, and the passive pixel art really gives away very little. All you do is row, but I nonetheless wish I woke up to a similar micro-game every day. Creator Agj describes the inspiration for it as "like a waking dream". Takes about five minutes to get through, so have a go before moving to the comments.
