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 an amazing year!


Starting in April we had no clue how big Rusty Lake could be.. 8 months later we have made 7 games in total, which lead to a great community exploring our world, millions of plays and downloads, a million views on Youtube, showcasing on 3 amazing events, press articles and so many more milestones we didn’t expect.

Can’t say how much you guys helped us during this process, your support/input/questions/remarks ensured us to develop even better games and made us look into different options (for example the desktop version of Rusty Lake Hotel is available because of your input!). We feel very honored that we have fans who are willing to buy Rusty Lake Hotel, this is a real chance for us to keep doing what we do. Next to that we are feeling lucky that many talented people shared fan art and helped us with voice acting/music/trailers, just amazing!

But we think 2015 was just a beginning for Rusty Lake. We have a lot more in store for you!

Plans for Q1 2016:
– 3 Cube Escape games (1-1-2016 you will get the first preview!)
– Switching from Flash to Unity
– A Steam release (vote for Rusty Lake Hotel:
– Hopefully someone will join our team to develop games even faster…
– Website update:, you may noticed the layout update (refresh cache) but we also want to add a community login with achievements.
– A small HTML5 game
– More contests
Don’t pin us down on this list, we try to set the bar as high as possible 🙂
