Rusty Lake

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.

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.

Check out our blog, social media or newsletter for new updates and content.

We wish you a pleasant stay in Rusty Lake!

    ya quiero que salga el juego!! estoy muy emocionada !!! I’m so excited !!!

  4. Luiz Pedro says:

    Will this new project be a free or a premium game? (Hoping for premium…)

    If premium, please consider launching it to Mac and Linux, it should not be too complex to. Also, I would love to have the entire series packed together in a premium format!

    • Xiteg says:

      Dude, no. Why premium? Would you feel special if you would buy it then? It should be free for all so everyone can enjoy the next part of the Rusty Lake story. Also, would you just let the devs do their jobs. They would be the only one’s that would know how they(and we)wan’t it. They are the one’s who came up with the whole Rusty Lake story so if they could impress us or atleast me with their previous work, im sure that they will do a great job with this new upcomming project 🙂

      • Luiz Pedro says:

        The premium games allow for a different form of world development, since they are not a direct sequence to the story but more side and origin stories to the series locations and characters. Also, they may have a better image quality, since the platform allows for it. And I’m interested in both of those things.

        And I’m only expressing my wishes as a customer, nothing else. If you disagree with my opinion, there is absolutely no need to answer in that passive-agressive tone.
