The Lyrical Mermaid: Water

If there's one downside of having an SSD as your main hard drive, it's that you find yourself aggressively removing any and all games you're not convinced you'll play any time soon. And so it is that I have no Source-powered games on my PC right now, and need to sit through a 5GB SDK download just to play this 200MB mod. While I wait, I'll show you what it is I'm waiting for - Water is a mini HL2 mod about a singing Mermaid with magic powers who isn't wearing a shirt. No Jamaican lobsters and crying here though: this puzzle-blessed action-adventure makes fish-people all grimdark, by the look of things.

Download Water yourself from here. I'll take a look soon, once my SSD is fat with 5GB of Source SDK. Meantime, I have dragons to shout at.
