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!

    How do I share my Rusty Lake artwork? I, erm, have no artistic talent and haven’t drawn anything yet, but I’d still like to throw my hat in the ring. Thank you!

    Hey Rusty Lake People,
    Kudos to you for crafting such unique and challenging games. You all are talented(cubed). They pull me in every time I play and I don’t want to stop and tend to my real life responsibilities. Your fabulously inventive creativity and Mr. Crow get the blame for my waywardness.
    I enjoy the games being far more complex than they initially appear to be. They look simple and homey I think because the graphics are very 2D and muted. The puzzles are hard, though, and when the story and art flip into weirdness and violence – it startles the #### out of me. Add in the music’s creep factor and the hair on the back of my neck is standing up and I’m wondering if I locked all the doors. They are just completely different, well crafted puzzles. Fun.
    Well done. I bought or downloaded all of them … please make more.
    Thanks again,
    N. California
