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.

    …”Give that man a drink!”

  2. Jand says:

    There is no agreement on who the old man is.

  3. crinohomura says:

    Drink Ice Music!

  4. joanne says:

    I think he looks more like Dale’s grandfather from Birthday, than the barman from Theatre

  5. Jand says:

    After comparing to various images, I can conclude that the ‘Old Man’ is, in fact, the disguise of Mr. Crow (without mouth stitching, and… eyes). Possibly, we play as the husband of the old lady (from mill)? Before, of course, Mr. Crow took his place.

  6. Jand says:

    Younger, actually. He has black eyebrows and a much more fashionable attire.

  7. Snowdini says:

    This gonna turn into the black and blue/white and gold dress thing from 2015, atleast until people find out who he is.

  8. Joanne says:

    actually…. he does look like a younger version of Dale’s grandfather (with the black, not grey eyebrows)…. maybe the new cube-escape is about the events that led up to Birthday?… *shrug* just an idea.

  9. Rustian #1 says:

    Does he have the cube tattoo under his hat?☺

  10. Jand says:

    Nobody knows. The only people who could fill this role are the Bartender (theatre), Dale’s grandfather (birthday), or the disguise of Mr. Crow (The Mill + Case 23).

  12. Jand says:

    Everyone on Cube Escape Wiki say that this is Mr. Crow’s disguise!

  13. Jand says:

    Also, submarine + old man + rusty lake + free = amazing experience

  14. 丁果 says:

    Is he Mr Crow?:)

  15. Fred says:

    Birthday grandpa
    Still remember when we play birthday,one of friends try to
    say give it to your mother in a local Chinese language
    Indeed,it sounds quite funny.
    After that,we often play together and talk about cube escape
    It helps us develope our friendships
    We are now all looking forward to the new game.
    And last, give it to your mother.

  16. Jerry says:

    I think the old lady in “the mill” could be Rose in “the Roots”, given the years and the old lady’s age.Anyway, here comes the Crow.
