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 White Door – New Release Date

The White Door – New Release Date

Dear fans,

unfortunately due personal circumstances we have to postpone the release date of The White Door to January 9. The past weeks we were unable to work as we are used too, leaving no other option to take a bit more time.

We strongly believe delaying the game will be better for our wellbeing but also the quality of the game, as we would normally crunch the last 4 weeks to the release date (and the weeks after). Not releasing any game this year makes us sad, but knowing what awesome projects we have in the pipeline, we are sure we will not let you down next year.

Thanks for your support!

  29. Louis Stuart says:

    Hi Harvey,
    Have you got any plans to redistribute the first nine Cube Escape games on Steam? The Adobe Flash plugin will be unsupported soon, so we may have trouble playing these games online.

  30. Hong says:

    Lustylake knows how to make fans fussy..?
    Janu…a…ry……..9th…Whit….e…door…(putting on calendar)?
    Always missing you lustylake!

  31. Derek says:

    Major bummer dudes.

  32. Monkey says:

    Please know that all the complaints here are meant to be expressions of love for your wonderful games! (And if they’re not, those people can go suck an egg.) We know that you work very hard to bring us quality products, so we don’t want you to get burnt out. Take your time, your fans can and will wait. 🙂

  33. Bruno says:

    I just completed Chapter 1, Cube Paradox, the 10th in the series it appears but somehow ended up starting with this one as my first. I must say it’s amazing work that truly corresponds to my style of game and I instantly bought chapter 2 as well as downloaded all the cubes and extra paid apps of the genre. I’m now going back to the very first game before I complete chapter 2, just in case it affects a greater story line that I’m unaware of, but I’ll be thrilled even if there’s no link between them if they keep me this intrigued. All that said, I can certainly wait a bit as I appreciate the other titles. Best Wishes to the team!

  34. talko says:

    i love all your games and the short movie! i will wait as long as it takes! thank you all for your hard work! honestly this is my favorite game!

  35. Rai says:

    ?????? but what matters is for everyone to feel their best. Regardless I’m supporting all of your future endeavors.

  36. J says:

    I waited too much!

  37. Steph says:

  40. Lindsay says:

    I am a huge fan but I will say I’m a little disappointed about the delay of this game. January can not come soon enough. The anticipation is real?

  41. Jerry Smith says:

    shut up and take my money

  42. Bert says:

    Oh man this is KILLING me! But this isn’t about me—it is about doing what YOU need to do to be physically and mentally rested. Know that there are many of us devoted fans who love your work and will wait as long as necessary for a fantastic game! However, you truly are killing me, Smalls! All my best!

  43. Ric says:

    I don’t want to see my favorite series getting crunched, so it’s a good thing to see you guys taking care of their members well-being.
