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 on the Trailer / Gamescom

Update on the Trailer / Gamescom

We just came back from Gamescom and we want to thank everyone that played the demo and gave feedback. Of course we also want to thank everyone at the Indie Arena Booth for having us on such a great showcase!

We also want to thank everyone for the overwhelming support on the teaser trailer we released last week 🙂
We have been very excited to share it with you. The White Door has a bit different style than our previous games, interactions and narrative play important role in the overall gameplay experience. But we are making sure it feels like a Rusty Lake game, but this time the focus is a bit more on the narrative part.

We are now going back to work! The exact release date is still depending how much we get done next month. Feel free to wishlist the game now on Steam, this will help us a lot!

Ps. Don’t worry, the story has (a lot of) connections with the Rusty Lake universe.
