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.Read more
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.

We wish you a pleasant stay in Rusty Lake!
In this update we want to reveal a bit more about the story of Rusty Lake Paradise. It was back in March, when we came up with the idea for this project. Right from the start we were excited about creating an island which is cursed by plagues. Also after The Cave we really wanted to create a different narrative again, like Roots and Hotel.
The main story plot of the game is the 10 plagues, a variation of the ten biblical plagues of Egypt, which curses the island and its inhabitants after the main character’s mother mysteriously dies. The player must interact with the family members around the island and partake in rituals in order to stop the plagues. Unfortunately we can’t reveil more info about the family, you will find out yourself. The game will take place before Roots.
In the previous development update we revealed more info about the different gameplay. The last couple of months we showcased on as many gaming conferences as possible (Indigo, Gamescom, PAX and Tokyo Game Show), we do this to not only promote our work but also to play test the new gameplay and levels we already made. We wanted to be 100% sure this new gameplay would fit. And we are now! This weekend in Japan it became more clear that our game doesn’t have a language barrier and everyone could play Paradise easily.
Unfortunately the process of creating the story and finetuning the new gameplay caused a delay in development. We changed directions a couple of times and we had to redo a lot of stuff. There is also VERY exciting “next level” (but secret) stuff going on here at Rusty Lake, which also takes some time from us.
For all the people asking when the game comes out: we are aiming to finish all the levels within the next month and then we expect to need 2-3 weeks to test the final build. The game is done when its done 🙂
The fly man is waiting for you!
UPDATE: The games out on January 11th 🙂
I think it is going to be a great game.
I have been waiting for more news and you did not disappoint
Taking place before roots? So this means it will be about the people before William and Aldous but still in the family or an entirely new family?

I haven’t found any other mobile game as interesting and good as rusty lake. The other mobile games are not even close from the quality, to the story, to the gameplay. I could even say I haven’t found a PC game series as good as this! I’ve played all the games and I can’t wait for the next ones to come! You are doing a very good job Rusty Lake people, keep going 😀
OMG! Seriously I can’t wait for your new series. That looks so cool and amazing!!

Only recently discovered the Rusty Lake games, but I’m a huge fan of escape and riddle type games, and these are hands down, the best I’ve seen! Thank you for sharing you’re creativity! Can’t wait for this next chapter!
Is there a literary doctor in the production group? I think you’re very familiar with Gothic novels.
