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!

We almost got stuck in the blizzard that now works its way up the East Coast. Luckily we got home before, so we can finish the game. The following giant ad on Time Square will be the last teaser before the trailer (which reveals the date).

    Hoping you will release the game before 23th March, I can’t play for some day after that date, and I will be in pain if the game comes out while I’m away!
    Anyway, I’m really happy the day is coming.

    Yippee! It’s coming soon!

    And I have found some musics used in previous Cube Escape games (I found them in Incompetech):
    Seasons fall = reign supreme
    Case 23 Murder scene = clean soul
    Case 23 Investigation = on the ground
