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!

The Day After The Release!

The Day After The Release!

Wow thanks for the great responses so far! It’s almost a year ago since we launched Theatre and we forgot how many people actually would play a Cube Escape game. Thanks for all the personal messages, comments, feedback and reviews.The ratings are phenomenal! We gathered around 1500+ 5 star ratings in just 24 hours of a release! Amazing.

Some small bugs did occur and of course we’re doing our best to fix these asap. Besides that we haven’t seen any major flaws in the game, so we’re really happy with that. We had a big issue yesterday in Apple Store where people had trouble finding the app, luckily we found away to fix this. If you now search for “Cube Escape” you will find the game for sure.

We wish you a great weekend, time for us to drink a small beer and discuss our next game! For those who still need to enter the cave, enjoy 🙂

Thanks for all your support!

    I just downloaded this game on my IPad but I can’t get it to open up – just goes immediately back to the home page! Do you know why it is doing that??
    The reviews sound good and I really wanted to play it.

    Fantastic job!!! One question: Why don’t you guys charge at least 0.99 for this game. I would be very glad reciprocating your effort. I really hope this is a preview of a greater game to come (when we will have to pay though lol). Keep up!

  19. Daniel says:

    Thank you for all of the work and thought that goes into each game you release. I’m a big fan of Twin Peaks and David Lynch, and I definitely see the inspiration. The atmosphere and strangeness you create is so good and I always look forward to every new release.

    For anybody to know, due to CE ending soon, but more games coming out in Rusty Lake’s theme, we have changed the name of the Cube Escape Wiki to Rusty Lake Wiki.
    Here’s the new link:

    Its the best game, i have ever seen)))), when we can see new part of this great game?

  25. Carize says:

    Crazy about these games. Thank you so much.

  26. Gabby says:

    I played CE: The Cave because I must have seen it on the top list in the App Store or something. I then realized that, a while back, I had watched something that resembled the game’s style from a YouTuber and I also realized that it was because I had watched them play CE: Theatre. Within the week I became hooked and played the entire CE series so far. 🙂 very fun and unique and I can’t wait to discovery more mysteries of Rusty Lake.
