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!

Here is a new update from Rusty Lake… (painting, new project and events)

Here is a new update from Rusty Lake… (painting, new project and events)


This week we visited Johan to pick up the painting of Rusty Lake.. he did such an incredible job and the result is just above our expectations. His work will have an important role in our new project and we’re planning to sell posters from the painting as merchandising.. Think of a Rusty Lake poster above your bed 🙂

As mentioned before the new premium game will be bigger than any project we have done before. At the moment we’re busy brainstorming, making puzzles and getting the whole story together. Maybe we share fewer updates than usual but we need al our focus for the new game.

Besides getting the game done we will attend 2 gaming events the upcoming months, so you have an opportunity to meet the team of Rusty Lake. We will showcase our games at the Holland Pavilion at Gamescom 2016 (August 17th until August 19th in the B2B area of Gamescom, Hal 3.2, booth D-018, C-019.). We’re also very excited to showcase at the Tokyo Game Show in Japan (we will let you know more info soon). It would be awesome for us to meet some fans during those fairs. You can always email us at:

Stay tuned!
