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!

Update from the Lake: new t-shirts + Cube Escape Collection + more

Update from the Lake: new t-shirts + Cube Escape Collection + more

Hi all!

The last month we contacted all the winners from The White Door achievement contest and the Samsara Room secret contest. The lucky ones have received an email confirming the prize or you might have received a postcard in your mailbox 🙂 We are excited to share that we made two of the prizes available in our shop: a Samsara Shrimp t-shirt and a The White Door t-shirt, both using embroidery. Feel free to check them out in our merchandising shop (expect delays because of Covid-19).

Currently we are working on the Cube Escape Collection. It was a difficult process to make a new framework for the older games. Good thing is that we now can update them with translations and we have the ability to bundle them into one package. Next to this we are planning to add a whole new hint system, which hopefully can help a lot of newcomers. Our plan is to update all the mobile versions first (sorry for the Android users that experiencing a Black screen at the moment!) and then continue working on the bundle on Steam. Since Flash won’t be supported at the end of this year, it is necessary we put all the effort in preserving these games on Desktop and bundle them for a small price. As mentioned the games won’t be much different than the current versions, but we hope you will appreciate our efforts to maintain the series on desktop with enough achievements!

Beside the Collection we have more exciting projects… we cannot wait to share our second teaser of the 3D-ish project! Next to this we are helping Johan Scherft with his first game (about cats!). More info about this soon.

Wishing you a great summer at the lake and stay tuned for updates!
