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’m sure it’ll be as awesome as them all! Looking forward to the next chapter of the cube (and to getting scared half to death by one of the tormented souls!)

  3. Colleen says:

    I am so excited! Your team does such amazing work! I’m eagerly awaiting the pup.

  4. Taylor says:

    Every single game from Rusty Lake is simply amazing. Looking forward to the new game!
    And also have you heard of the movie “The Cure”? For some reason I immediately thought of Rusty Lake as soon as I saw the trailer. There’s even a scene where a guy has a reindeer/moose head. Wow.

    These games are amazing! I’m trying to figure out the plot, and I’ve already filled 2 notebook pages with notes! I can’t wait to unlock more of the story!

  15. DiscordantQ says:

    So excited! I played them out of order, if there is even an order, and I just finished up the last one I had yet to play. I love these games, although my fiancé gets worried about me when I sit around mumbling “Am I supposed to stab the cow with the scissors?”, and “Why is Mr. Crow holding his beak in his hand?”.

  16. Marina says:

    Ohhhhh!!!!!! I really want to play it!!! Finally, a new cube escape. I absolutely love every one of your games, I played all of them except Hotel. Roots very impressed me, the storyline is so dark and mysterious. I hope that we will find out more anwsers.

  22. Alilnothinmore says:

    Love all of your work it is all spectacular!! Especially Rusty lake :Roots, it has an intriguing story line and eye catching scenery it was wonderfully put together . It also introduced a whole new cast of characters to include in the mystery rusty lake, which I found outstanding. The newest game was definitely worth the wait and i look forward to the future adventures of the rusty lake series!

  23. Shannon says:

    I hope I speak for a lot of your fans when I say take your time! The games that you put out are always of such amazing high quality and depth, I don’t want y’all to think we’re pushing you to put out a lesser product quicker. We can always go back and play the old ones. XD

    Thank you so much for your inspiration and perspiration!

  24. Cecero says:

    Can’t wait for the new cube escape! I’m a huge fan of your work! But can you please try to make the puzzles a little harder? I find that “Roots” was far easier than the other chapters.

  25. Ann says:

    Whose point of view will this one be and I hope it will add to the story thats what I love most about cube escape.

  26. Mary says:

    Thank you. Played all your games and trying to wait paiently for the next.

  33. soph says:

    love ur content thank u so much please keep doing what ur doing !!!!

  34. AIdi says:

    Hey, I just think that you may could make a new game whose story takes place UNDER THE WATER! And maybe you can create A NEW CHARACTER, such as Mr.SHARK! …Actually, I also know that although the appearance of black shark is horrible, it may not completely suit with the style of the whole story of Rusty Lake….So this is just an idea suddenly came to me. Looking forward to your new works!
    Ps: My English is not good,hope that won’t puzzle you.

  35. Samira says:
