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!

Solving bugs, worldwide web release and a new cube escape!

We really hope you guys liked the new Cube Escape: Case 23! Feel free to write a review or give the game a rating, this will help us a lot!
For those who encountered some bugs, we’re sorry..emptying the coffee machine is now working again. It’s pretty difficult to test this bigger game cross device/browser. The iOS update will take some while, but the new Android version and Webversion (delete cookies and refresh page) are up.
This weekend we will launch the webversion on the big gaming portals: and Newgrounds! I think our fans there can’t wait any longer.

Did anyone notice the Mill on the police board? We’re working day and night to get you to that Mill soon:)

    Wonderful puzzle game, I like typing puzzle and the above pics puzzle.

    I played full of series of cube escape, I like the story of seasons, and the design of Arles.

    Especially Arles include the reality stories and paintings.

    Hope play more Cube Escape and finding the mystery soon.

    Great game but my background is not loading.. Its unclear
    Please help

  3. Andrea says:

    Games are virtually impossible as the background is black in every episode I’ve downloaded. Can’t read item descriptions, can’t see details, can’t find items. Very frustrating.

  4. Maisie says:

    Black background again! Don’t know why this keeps happening all of a sudden…

  5. Sha says:

    I have the sugar cube ready for the crow’s coffee, but he has disappeared so I can’t give it to him. Is this supposed to happen? (Gone from present mind area.)
