We are Rusty Lake:
Creators of the praised Cube Escape series and the premium point-and-click adventures Rusty Lake Hotel and award-winning Rusty Lake: Roots.Read more
Welcome to Rusty Lake, a surreal place where anything can happen. We offer you the most mysterious game series you'll ever play.
Why not try out our praised Cube Escape series first? Let the cubes guide you the eerie and atmospheric point-and-click adventures with an "escape room" feeling. Currently we have ten Cube Escape games taking place in the Rusty Lake universe. Cube Escape: Paradox is our latest installment which is combined with a short film! Download them for ten on iOS, Android or play on Desktop.
Next to our Cube Escape series we created three premium adventure games with unique story lines taking place in Rusty Lake as well. Serve deadly dinners to five animal-headed guests in Rusty Lake Hotel, expand the bloodline of the Vanderbooms in our award-winning adventure Rusty Lake: Roots or stop the ten plagues on a small island in Rusty Lake Paradise.
On the right, you can find a list of all our games sorted by release date.
On our game portal you can play our free games but also find other adventure, room escape and puzzle games. We selected games with a fascinating story, ambiance or unique game-play made by more forward-looking developers.

We wish you a pleasant stay in Rusty Lake!
The new Rusty Lake project is coming together and it will be bigger than everything before! We really wanted to improve ourselves with this new premium game, so a different approach was needed: not only for the game itself but also how we work. This time we have invested a lot more time in putting the whole story and ideas together as you can see below. The last couple of weeks were filled with these kind of brainstorm sessions:
Lets sum up some things we changed for this game:
– The game will consist of 40+ levels (some small/some bigger)
– The story we have put together involves a lot more characters than normal, and the development of these characters will be an important part of the game.
– The view from the game will be different, you will be scrolling/moving from side to side in stead of switching to different walls of the room.
– The gameplay will be merrily the same, although it contains some new puzzle-dynamics (and we’re still testing dragging from the inventory as well).
As you might have read we were looking for a background artist and we started a collaboration with the talented Dutch painter: Johan Scherft. Funny fact is that he reached out to us for some saving issues with Rusty Lake Hotel, after helping him out he showed his portfolio and we thought he would be a perfect match. Currently he is working on a special pastel painting of Rusty Lake, which will be used as a background in the game. His first sketches made us really excited, and we hope to share a preview with you guys later this week.
Victor Butzelaar is responsible for the music and soundtrack of the game. We expect it to be amazing as always!
We are expecting another 2 to 3 months of work to completely finish the game. The game needs a lot more testing and polishing than normal. But it will be worth waiting… and of course we will show more previews of the game soon!
Ps. Next week we will send the prizes of the Rusty Lake Gin Tonic contest. The winners are not informed, so everyone can check their mailboxes.
