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!

A new hint system! (2 days left)

A new hint system! (2 days left)

2 Days left!!

When you play the new Cube Escape you might notice a question mark on the right of your screen. Cube Escape: The Cave is the first game where implemented a complete hint system (it’s quite hard so you probably need it :))!

We are aware that not everyone likes to get hints or help while playing the Cube Escape series. But for people who are used to check out our walkthrough video from time to time, this hopefully improves your gameplay a lot. If you are stuck and click on the question mark you can check out a hand drawn example that might help you to progress. The only catch is that you have to watch a video ad or our own ad in order to open a new hint, but now you don’t need to go out of the game to a walkthrough page and then look up where you are in the YouTube video (and watch an ad first). We still keep a walkthrough video available, but we think you’ll like this new hint system and for us it is a way to make some money out of the free games.

Ps. Testing and translations are almost done!

    I like the hand drawn pic! I think I will check the hints no matter whether I need a hint! Although I hate ads, I think you guys deserve more… So I hope the ads won’t be so boring, at least maybe I can learn some english from that…
