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!

Development update! #3

Development update! #3

As promised we would like to share a development update… Before now we haven’t disclosed any details other than it will take place on small island in Rusty Lake. We would like to add there is a family inhabiting the island, who are being terrorised by plagues. It is your job to go around the island, help the family and vanquish the plague. The game offers ominous situations and bizarre rituals, which you would expect from a Rusty Lake game.

Our goal is to launch this new premium title within 2 months… We are now at 40% and we have set the bar quite high to finish 10% every upcoming week. For the background graphics we are collaborating again with Johan Scherft. Victor Butzelaar is already crafting a new beautiful soundtrack and Bob Rafferty will help with some voice acting.

From now on we will keep you informed every 2 weeks 🙂

    The music made by Victor Butzelaar is so beautiful. The rabbit theme at the rusty lake hotel was so impressive. The next music is also very much expected.

    Very excited for this! I love Rusty Lake so much. It’s grown on me a lot. This might sound rude, and it’s just my personal criticism, will you ever update some of the sound effects? Like the drowning gurgling and the drinking sound?

  10. Wynn says:

    Can’t wait!

    I can’t wait. The previous games have been fun and interesting to play and I’m sure the next will be just as good, if not better. Is the next one going to be a steam game or one for Kongregate?

  20. Nicole says:

    I’m so happy and excited!! ?

  21. Lindsey says:

    Wow I just realize why I love this series so much, it touches into a lot of why I love the Alpha saga by the Mountain Goats, though now I’m struggling to pinpoint exactly why they feel so similar to me. If you collaborated and did a game version of their story I think that would be so wildly incredible.

  22. mary says:

  30. Danielle Roberts says:

    I think what I love so much about these games and what keeps me coming back to them is the eerie indie atmosphere and the mystery, it reminds me of the Welcome To Nightvale podcast so much (which i also love). Aaahhhh, I’m so excited for the next updates!!
