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. Both game and movie follow the story of a detective who finds himself trapped in two different universes and needs to escape. The game will uniquely interact with the movie, via television, telephone, tape recorders and so on. We've carefully placed a ton of visual hints hidden in the movie, which can then be used in the game. The game will feature two chapters, one free to play and one premium. Both set in the same room but they will feature different puzzles and objects.
- A story and setting that matches the Paradox film
- Gameplay as you would expect from the tenth Cube Escape
- Unique connections and interactions with the short film
- There will be two different levels available (one for free and one premium), both will feature different puzzles
- There will be different endings
- A lot of typical Rusty Lake moments
- Available on iOS, Android, Steam and itch.io
- Supporting 14 different languages
