Cube Escape Paradox

After creating 12 games within the Rusty Lake universe we are excited to bring you: Paradox - a combined Rusty Lake short film and game. Paradox is a combined Rusty Lake game and short film! Both follow the story of a detective who finds himself trapped in two different universes and needs to escape. When the infamous detective Dale Vandermeer wakes up in an ominous room without any recollection of his past, he soon finds himself part of a bizarre game orchestrated by an old foe. Dale must solve increasingly challenging puzzles to escape the room and recover his memories.
