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 Paradise Release Date

Rusty Lake Paradise Release Date

These men can finally answer your biggest question… Rusty Lake Paradise will be released on iOS, Android, Steam and on January 11th 2018 and will cost 3 €/$ (taxes can differ)! Of course we announce this news with mixed feelings; the game would have been perfect for Christmas… in Summer we already hoped for a release in November, but the development process just took longer then expected. Designing a new, bigger narrative with new characters takes a lot of time for us two and with every Rusty Lake premium game that we make, we seem to make it bigger, better and more attractive for you guys.

The good news is that we are becoming very proud of what the game has become since the initial idea back in February this year. Last month the game is finally coming together and we still need every day of the 31 days left to finalize the game with: voice overs, sounddesign, texts, translations and lots of bug testing.
Happy we can provide a clear date now and we just hope you will be excited and supportive as you have been throughout the whole development process. It really kept us motivated (and still is)!!

And if you think Rusty Lake will stop after this? There is also a lot happening in the background next to Paradise, not only a new Cube Escape but also a very UNIQUE project that gets more shape every week… It will be something completely new for Rusty Lake and has never been done before in gaming. Guess we owe you guys a first teaser of this project during Christmas. Stay tuned and thanks for your patience… Paradise awaits you.

    Ohh yes! Finally! I’ve been waiting for so long!
    Thank you Rusty lake for you awesome game series!
    I don’t know that I love more, the beautiful yet easy art or the unique story. Or maybe the mystery music which ironically helps me to relax 🙂
    You rock!

    *insert fangirls scream here*

  2. Diogo says:

    Dear Santa, due to my country location I can’t have the chance to win the ????. But I will not be shaken up as the guy up here says : *insert fangirls scream here*
    The game surely will be one of the best and i will buy it xD

  3. Lee Hanna says:

    It’s always worth the waiting 😉
    I’ll just make sure to mark my calendar for 11th Jan.

    Merry Xmas guys!

  4. Leon LHeureux says:

    If you wanna finish it up and release it sooner…..I, for one, wouldn’t mind one bit!

  5. Amnase says:

    Yes, FINALLY!!

  7. Edna says:

    Finally ! I’m so hyped right now haha 😀 The Rusty LAke games are simply one of my favorites. Besides Edna and Harvey the breakout, they’re my favorite point and click games !

  8. Elizabeth says:

    So… you’re saying that…. it’s not FREE???

    • Jean says:

      I think truly worth it. Come on.. 3$ is so cheap for this achivement and effort.

    • Cedric says:

      “Ho my god !!! 3$, it will really ruin you !!!” 🙁

    • Ana says:

      Well, like Roots and Hotel, too. It’s worth a lot more. 3$/€ is nothing.

    • Sky says:

      Well yeah, of course it isn’t free!
      Do you honestly expect this game to be one you could just click on a webpage and instantly play it?
      Samsara** through The Cave (Excluding Roots and Hotel) are the free playable ones. Hotel, Roots, and now Paradise are the Premium games.
      AKA: If you want more of the story, you will have to pay for it
      Honestly I love that it will be $3, I already have Hotel, planning on getting Roots for Christmas even if I have to buy it myself..and then I’m hoping to win Paradise for my birthday, if not I can always buy it! I cant wait for the 11th!

      **(No Seasons nor The Lake were the actual first Rusty Lake games UNLESS you want to consider it wasn’t dubbed as part of Cube Escape or Rusty Lake at the time. It did however have the same idea as these games. The Cubes (Ooo that would make a cool Cube escape title! xD) finding them and escaping from them)

      As always “The past is never dead, it’s not even the past”

  20. Rima says:

    Wow Wow Wow!!!!!! I am really very excited!!!!

    Thank you guys for the best quality work that you do. I am not a game addict, but since I discovered Rusty Lake games I have acquired an addiction to it 😀 😀 😀 Cube Escape is the best game I have played by far, because everything is excellent here, from the music and sound effects to the plot. It is obvious that every creator of the game does his/her best to make this game excellent and enjoyable.

    Looking forward for playing this game, and I will pay 3$ without hesitating, because I really want to support you for the future creations.

    Thank you guys!!!! :)))
