Dear visitor,

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.

A mysterious murder case linked to The White Door *update*

A mysterious murder case linked to The White Door *update*

We found old footage of a mysterious murder case linked to The White Door. An unconfirmed report identifies the man as Doctor Theo Hoorn.

Hoorn was working for controversial mental health institute: The White Door.

We tried to call The White Door (+31202443854) or visit their website:, but we haven’t got any response so far. Feel free to discuss it on Discord:!

The Basement is now available – Update the game! #TheWhiteDoorARG

Update 2:
Unfortunately the ARG (alternate Reality Game) has ended, but we can imagine that a lot of people still want to play, solve the puzzles and login on Theo Hoorns emails in Sara’s achievement level to enter the secret basement. If you want to get started, please check out the website: Mental Health and Fishing and try to complete the test with the right answers. It is also important to check out the YouTube video. Feel free to look and ask for more information on our Discord. Good luck!

    Could you guys give me some clue about the access code of Dr.Hoorn?Can it be found in the game or in somewhere else? You know it’s hard for an foreigner whose mother language is not English to go deep into all of your updates to find information about this extra puzzle (and the puzzles you guys have published before). I’m a huge fan of you guys!Looking forward to your next game.?
    PS:Please give me some tips,I’m only 14 years old ?
