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!

    I don’t think I’ve seen the little blackbird before now. I already have the game on my desktop, but another for my husband’s desktop would be nice. Lovely games by the way!

    Well, who’s the winner? 28th is over 🙁
    I’m curious for the answer as I can’t remember the blackbird either, unless it represents Mr.Crow of course…

    I think the bird is in the game, it’s in a sink and you feed a cat with it… I Didn’t say the name of the game, but I think it’s a good clue 😉

  9. Taylor says:

    Noooo I got it right but didn’t make it into the lucky 15
    Guess I’ll just have to wait until the next competition. But that was really fun 🙂

    Really appreciate it. Thank you very much for holding a generous contest like this. Wasn’t an easy challenge, took a while to figure it out. Glad I got it right in the end and to get a copy of the game too.
    I definitely look forward to playing it.

  11. Mars says:

    Awesome 🙂 This was a fun competition, even if I hadn’t won I would’ve enjoyed it. I’ve played all the cube escape games to date and my first game was the lake (I know it’s the second game in the series but I didn’t know back then haha). I still remember when I fished up the dead body and I realized that this game was perhaps the best game I ever clicked on. This competition made me remember all those quirky happening in cube escape.
    Congratulations everyone 😀
