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!

Announcement time!!

We are very excited to share that Johan Scherft, the amazing artist responsible for the beautiful paintings like the one in Roots, has been secretly working on his own game for a while! And it is a game about cats! ? Through our publishing program at Second Maze, we were more than eager to jump at the opportunity to help make his creation reality (if I fits I sits).

Without further ado, we’d like to announce Milo and the Magpies, an atmospheric point-and-click puzzle game with beautifully hand-painted backgrounds and characters! ??

The game is still in development but you can wishlist it on Steam now (super appreciated) and we hope to receive your feedback when we will release a small demo sometime in October.

Please stay tuned for some more cat updates!?
