Rusty Lake

We are Rusty Lake:

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.

We wish you a pleasant stay in Rusty Lake!

Johan’s Paintings for Rusty Lake Paradise

Johan’s Paintings for Rusty Lake Paradise

With no more than 2 days before release, we want to thank Johan Scherft for his amazing work for Paradise. As you probably know, he made the beautiful Rusty Lake background painting for Roots. For Paradise we knew from start that we would like to work with Johan again, since his background images matches so well with our artwork. This time he made two paintings; two views of Paradise Island.

The first view of the island is used as the level select screen, with the 10 plagues incorporated.

The other one is the front view of Paradise island, which is used to as a starting screen for each level.

Johan's Paradise Island

We are really happy with the end result of both amazing paintings and if there is enough enthusiasm we might add it as a merchandise poster!
