Rusty Lake is both the name of our indie game studio and the eerie and surrealistic world we have created. Become part of Rusty Lake's mysterious adventures!

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 nine Cube Escape games taking place in the Rusty Lake universe. Download them for free on iOS, Android or play on Desktop.

Next to our Cube Escape series we created two 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 or expand the bloodline of the Vanderbooms in our award-winning adventure Rusty Lake: Roots.

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.

"Cube Escape: Paradox review: There's nothing else like this surreal room-escape/short film mash-up"

Jared Nelson

TouchArcade

"I am seriously just beside myself with how well done Paradox is. It’s probably more meaningful to the folks who have previously played the Cube Escape and Rusty Lake games as there’s all sorts of little touches of fan service to discover."
