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!

Introducing the name… Rusty Lake: Roots + Gamescom

Introducing the name… Rusty Lake: Roots + Gamescom

Rusty Lake: Roots will be the name of the next game! Let us know what you think 🙂


We had this postcard specially made for Gamescom last week. The conference was biggest gaming event we ever been to and it blew our minds (hope you had a chance to check out our daily story on Instagram!). Besides meeting a lot of people from the industry, press and even some fans.. it was the perfect oppurtunity for us to let people playtest the first 10 levels of Rusty Lake: Roots. We collect very useful feedback which will be processed in the coming weeks. Hopefully till next year (maybe enterainment area? Who knows :)).


On another note.. we’re very proud to be in 2 magazines this month (Control500 and Canard PC *23):

The next 4 weeks we will pull out all the stops for Rusty Lake: Roots!

    “Rusty Lake: Roots” – that sounds as if we have so far only seen very small excerpts of Rusty lake and this game will discover a much larger puzzle piece of this world.
    Is my assumption correct?
