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!

Thanks for all the support for Roots – an update!

Thanks for all the support for Roots – an update!


First of all we would like to thank you for all the support, we’re very grateful to anyone who bought Roots since its release last month. Because of this support we can continue on working new Rusty Lake projects. As mentioned before we are already working on a new free Cube Escape. Furthermore we want to launch a new layout for within a month (hopefully with merchandising). Also a background story on the development of Roots will be published soon.

If you enjoyed the game, maybe you would like to help us making Roots more popular šŸ™‚ Please don’t feel obligated since you already bought the game and that means a lot to us. But if you’re willing it will be great if you can support us with any of the following:

– Post a rating or write a review in the store, this would be great!
– Invite your friends to play this game. If they’re not familiar with Rusty Lake, maybe they can try Cube Escape series first.
– Post something (like a screenshot or fan art) of the game on your favorite forum, chat or social media.
– Suggest the game to your favorite Youtuber/Twitcher. We tried to reach them thousands of times but maybe with your help we can get their attention.
– You can always reach out to us for cool ideas!

Thank you Rusties!

Ps. In the upcoming weeks we will hold a contest to win a free copy of Roots.

    Hello Rusty Lake! Simply a question… was the corrupted soul with antlers actually inspired by the beast from Over The Garden Wall? They look incredibly similar and I was just wondering if it was a coincidence or not.

  5. Rustian says:

    Is Dale’s granddad/dad Aldous’s son? And why is it possible to see the same person in two places (like Mr. Rabbit)?

  6. Alex says:

    So many glitches.
    I can’t pass 3 levels because of the bugs it has.
    I do everything, I’ve already done many times everything from official walkthrough but still can’t pass these level:
    1. Summer 1909 – The Brood
    2. Summer 1889 – The Fortune Teller
    3. Spring 1884 – Fertility
    It just doesn’t react as in walthrough.
    I always was fan of Rusty Lake games, but now i see that this is waste of money.

    • Harvey says:

      Could you let me know on which device you play and which version you have?
      If there is somehow a glitch you can also reset a level in settings and try again.
      We’re sorry for the issues, if it still persists we can also give a refund.
