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!

Wow! We reached our Kickstarter goal in just 9 hours!

Wow, this is amazing! We reached our Kickstarter goal in just 9 hours, we didn’t see this coming…
Thanks for your incredible support, this will not only help us financing the project but it will also be a great motivation to finish the movie and game in the best way possible. Since the rewards are already gone in one day, we will do our best to add more. Time for a Rusty Lake cigar.

    Can’t support you guys via Kickstarter, I don’t have those payment methods. If you accept Paypal, that would be nice.

  2. Love says:

    Wow! it’s so amzing!!
    I’m expecting the cool game and the movie!!!

    Hi Rusty Lake team !
    First, thanks for your work, I follow you almost since the begining and I really like what you’re creating.
    Then, I was wondering, how could we select the size of the Paradox T-shirt ?

  4. Tanith says:

    By the time I got there, the goal was already reached! Congrats! Really looking forward to seeing both the game an movie–the shots showing the side-by-side comparison were awesome. Keep up the great work!

    Unfortunately I could not fund this project as much as I would like to since I have a Maestro Card. I have a question: Will the premium chapter of the game be available for sale on Steam after it will be published?

  6. trunghieumickey says:

    I was thinking about fund you some money. But when I see your Kickstarter page, I don’t thing if any kongregate player could help. Because there is no option for us to receive full game 🙁
    I think you shouldn’t abandon flash because on Kong, I still have few hundred of kred to spend for full game. so don’t leave us please !!!

  7. Shar says:

    Do you need money now? Sorry I just saw it. If you need I ‘ll give!

  8. Shar says:

    Please I want T-shirt!!!!!!! Or the dress!!!!!!there are no T-shirts and dresses left!!!!!!!!????I just want to buy a T-shirt of rusty lake !!! I played the whole series and I love it! !!!!!!!!!!I even would sleep with the game creator for a T-shirt! !!!!!please!!! !!

  9. Harvey says:

    @Mark Unfortunately paypal isn’t accepted by Kickstarter 🙁
    @Estéban we will send surveys after 6-8 weeks and we will ask the preffered size. Thanks for your support!
    @SunsetFountain We are not sure yet, but there is a high chance!
    @trunghieumickey We can ony put the free version on Kongregate.
    @Shar We will use all the movie for the project, so every pledge still helps. We might add some extra t-shirts later this week, but you can also check for more t-shirts.

    Thanks guys!

    i want to support you ….
    but i don’t have visa card ┌(┌ 、ン、)┐
    can you add more payment mothod?
    like paypal or alipay…..
    there are many rusty lake fans in china ,
    and we can’t use google. so can you do something, like sell it on TapTap or other platform ?

  11. Avinaash says:

    My hype level just got increased by a ten fold!!! Love you guys!!! You’re the best!!!

  12. 没有名字的侦探先生 says:

    Come from China too,as the dude above …I can’t pay via Kickstarter as I can’t use the payment method available, but at the same time I really want to support you. (Rusty lake is my favorite series!) Alipay is a good choice, for most of us use it. Could you please take it under consideration?
    Moreover…hope that you can sell it on another platform which is available in China…we are restrained from browsing many websites, especially Google:(

  13. 叶凌鹤Tristan says:

    Can you hold some present activities in China Inland . There are many fans and we are dying to see the film! by a fan from Guangdong , China .

  14. Hello Harvey
    I’ve been following all the games since they were released. I’m a big fan of the Cube Escape and Rusty Lake franchise. I purchased the 2 premium games for Android and had the privilege of being presented with the Rusty Lake Hotel Game on Steam (and I’m very grateful to that, thank you). But I do not have Credit Cards and I can not buy via Kickstarter. In Brazil we do not have support nor to buy in Euros. I would like to ask you kindly to consider launching the Paradise Game for Android and the movie to be purchased on YouTube. I will definitely buy both via Google Gift Card and will continue to give my contribution to the franchise. Thank you very much for your consideration and please respond to this message if you have this possibility. Good weekend. 🙂

    Hi Harvey!
    I’ve been playing all Rusty Lake games from the start!
    Really love your concepts and the mood of the game.
    I’d also love to back the rewards as well but the iOS version are already gone?
    Is there any chance whether you guys would add more rewards for iOS players?
    I’m really looking forwards for your new games and OST as well:-)

  16. Koikoi says:

    Is there any chance whether you would add more rewards for iOS users? Or do you have any further plans like in-app purchase for the full version instead?
    Only 100 rewards.. ?

    • Harvey says:

      @ Koikoi, Joue

      Unfortunately we are limited to amount of iAP promocodes that can be generated, which is 100.
      thanks for your great support guys
