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!

Rusty Lake #inktoberchallenge

The tremendous amount of Rusty Lake fan art we receive throughout the year means a lot and keeps us going. This month is #inktober… so while finishing Paradise, we would like to do a small challenge for all the amazing Rusty Lake fan artists out there!
We will make a top 10 collection of all the artwork we receive this month and we will choose 3 winners randomly. What will you win? A new Mr. Crow T-shirt (or Sweater – it is getting cold after all)..

Feel free to draw anything related to Rusty Lake and send it to, awesome if you post it on social media as well with the hashtags #inktober #inktoberchallenge #rustylake. Credits amazing fan art to: simon_lb.

Remember anyone can do Inktober, just pick up a pen and start drawing 🙂

Ps. We set up a Rusty Lake Tumblr which we will check from time to time to keep an eye on all the awesome stuff there.
Ps2. Don’t forget to play the header game at, hope you can find the secret!

Update: Thanks for all the great submissions so far, hope to see more 🙂
