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!

Happy New Year! Thanks all for an amazing 2018!

Happy New Year! Thanks all for an amazing 2018!

Thanks all for an amazing 2018 – a year full of big milestones!

Although we started 2018 with the release of Rusty Lake Paradise, this year has been all about Paradox. Creating a movie and game crossover is by far our biggest achievement, an accumulation of three and a half years of hard work. Being able to expand the Rusty Lake universe with a combined movie and game, with the help of you guys and the talented people involved in the project, is something we are truly grateful for!

The last couple of weeks we received more and more questions whether we are working on something new… and now we can officially say that we are developing a new Rusty Lake title. A game that contains a completely different UI and gameplay than any of our other games. Don’t worry though, the game will be filled with typical Rusty Lake puzzles and story-wise it contains a lot of history from Rusty Lake. When? It is hard to say but we are expecting at least 4-6 months of development time.

We are also working with a small external team on a very secret project: our first 3D game mixed with our 2D graphic style. We cannot wait to tease you more about this project, but the first builds are looking very promising. And hopefully this project will be our first step to a console release!

On another note, reading all your positive and lovely comments / reviews / fanmail on both the Paradox movie and game made us think we made the right choice with this crossover experience. The story of Dale and Laura is not over…yet!

Thanks a lot for your big support this year!

Wishing you a mysterious 2019 🙂

    This is so exciting!!! I’m so proud of you guys!!! I have been following your games for over 6 years, played them all, and watched the movie the day it came out!(I was in school at the time, don’t tell anyone). To say you guys have come a long way is such an understatement; this series has been such an amazing experience so far, and I cannot wait for the next installment! Keep up the good work, love you guys!!!

    I hope the newer game UI won’t be too different; some of us won’t be able to keep up. I’ve enjoyed 2D point-and-click PC or web games for a decade. I don’t play console games. 3D games give me nausea. For example, when Syberia 3 was released, I didn’t buy it because it was “modernized.” Don’t lose too many of your established fans!
