Wake is a fantastic game that I was able to play through, on Easy, in less than an hour. I immediately made an attempt at the Medium difficulty something I would rarely do even in a very short game and I was surprised at how much the intensity had revved up. With a total of 4 plays and 2 completions I highly recommend picking this game up, especially if it is a part of an indie bundle or is on sale itself.
So happy to finally see an updated version of this game.
This is one of the games that got me so interested in Indie gaming, and it's still one of my favourites. The first time I played it was one of the most immersive experiences I've ever had with a video game. Everything about the game has been done with clear attention to the smallest details; the visual effects are great, and the sound design in particular is just fantastic.
The game can get very tense, especially on higher difficulties where the water rises more quickly. Although it might have benefited a little more by providing more incentive for the player to stay above the waterline; maybe hypothermia?
An extremely engaging game, with a great atmosphere, this is definitely not one to be missed.
