In this experimental game you follow a man who enjoys the small things in life: the shape of a leaf, the curl of sunlight on the grass. Every day he sets out before dawn to explore the nature that surrounds his house. The player follows him through one of those days, and the game is a test of patience. While walking, you need press the spacebar to simulate his breathing. He inhales yellow orbs and as long as you keep timing it right, the walk continues. If you fail, the day starts over again.
Persistent players will eventually reach the titular pond, enjoying its quietly rippling water. The man however feels there is more to the pond, hidden below the surface, and it's up to the player to reveal its secrets.
