New Release! Cube Escape: Arles

New Release! Cube Escape: Arles

Cube Escape: Arles

We just released our new room escape game: Cube Escape: Arles (both free on iOS and Android). It’s about a painter who stayed in Arles for a while, we think you will recognize him. He painted his own bedroom and we transformed this into a Cube Escape game. It’s a bit of side step from the Rusty Lake Seasons and The Lake story, but you can expect the same weird things:)

    I don’t have an iOS or Android device, but I absolutely cannot wait to play this when it’s uploaded to the web. You’ve made the best online games I’ve played – I have high hopes for future games!

    Are you the guy behind samsara room?

    • Ryan says:


      Yes, I do believe they are. I think they’ve confirmed it on their Kongregate account, but the artwork and style is too similar the Rusty Lake developers not to have made Samsara Room.

    RL studio,
    I’m nervous for writing this…Well, at first, I must say, the Arles is such a wonderful game! Thanks for offering me the chance to play the best Cube Escape game I’ve ever played.
    I once played the Paradise Island, but that is too difficult for me to pass…So I lost interest in those kind of game for a term. In accident, I clicked the Arles, and because I had nothing else to do, I started it.I would kill myself if I missed it.
    I think the story is concerning Vincent van Gogh and his time in Arles, am I right? I do think it’s more than an ordinary escape game, as I’m touched by the ear and gun. I feel very upset for I have to cut his ear and shot him Just to get out of the room. That almost made me cry. I love van Gogh very much and the game forced me to replay the worst time in his life… It is the outstanding point of this game, and also the aspect I hate but like.
    The puzzles in the Arles is just fit for me. I figured them out by myself, and I’ve never achieve such an accomplishment before.Thanks again, for this fantasy gaming experience.
