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.

Behind the scenes Paradox [Studio Shoot]

Behind the scenes Paradox [Studio Shoot]

Take a look behind the scenes of the studio shoot! We spent four long days inside of our own real life cube escape room, which was built inside of a bigger studio. Amazing to see how much effort and detail was put in the room and the movie props. When the last iconic moth pattern was hand-painted on the wall and all the props were in place, it really felt like stepping into our own Cube Escape room. Step inside the middle of the studio room yourself with this awesome 360 pic on Facebook!



Big thanks to everyone who worked on the movie, we are very happy we reached the 1 million milestone on youtube, 🙂 Feel free to leave a review/rating on our IMDB page:
And we really hope you can join our Special Screening event during Leiden International Film Festival:

    So happy that you succeeded to extend rusty lake’s games concept with a film and soon a comic book. In my opinion, you should push the concept even further : why not (one day) create drama shows, other movies, and even why not open a kind of bar with musics, decorations and drinks (Bloody Mary) from Rusty Lake ! It would be awesome !

    Hi just wanted to ask a quick question:
    What was the brand of the TV that was used in the film? I’m planning on replicating some of the props used in the film and I would like to have a reference image or product to go off of.
