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 Past Within goes to Gamescom [UPDATE]

The Past Within goes to Gamescom [UPDATE]

Our The Past Within demo build for Gamescom is almost ready! We cannot wait to showcase it at Indie Arena Booth next month! 🤩

Gamescom is our next big The Past Within milestone – we’re currently working on the replayability feature, the save system and testing translations. Ideally, we’ll have most of those features ready and implemented into the demo in time for the event. 

After Gamescom – and the incredible playtesting opportunities the event will offer – we expect to have a very clear picture of what’s next! 

Thank you all for your patience and we hope to see some of you at the event! 👀

[Update] We are excited to share that our Gamescom preparations are done!

Our Indie Arena Booth will be well stocked with Rusty Lake merch, postcards, stickers, and our new and very cool The Past Within pop-up cubes! ✨⬛️✨


Our The Past Within pop-up cubes turned up so cool! ✨️ ⬛️ ✨️We’ll be handing some out to press and content creators at @gamescom so make sure to stop by our #indiearenabooth where you can also play the latest demo of #thepastwithin 👀 #rustylake
