Boo! Rusty Lake release Cube Escape: Paradox and short film

I'm calling it: Halloween season starts now. I've just hung a spooky lantern in the hallway and the spooky-ooky Rusty Lake gang today released not only a new altogether kooky adventure game but a live-action short film too. Ghost time is go. Cube Escape: Paradox is out now, offering its first chapter free so we can all try on the shoes of a detective trapped…

Cube Escape: Paradox will creep out September 20th

The next Rusty Lake game would be creepy enough without entwining itself with a live-action film, but I'm glad it is. Both Cube Escape: Paradox and Paradox: A Rusty Lake Film will come out on September 20th, telling a criss-crossing story about a detective who gets trapped in a room by an ominous crow. The film and one version of the game will be free,…

Rusty Lake Paradox is a movie/game crossover, seeking funds

You might have noticed that RPS is rather fond of the Rusty Lake series. A collection of free room escape games, and so far three longer adventure games, each introduces aspects of a deeply bizarre and unsettling tale. Twin Peaks meets Ancestry.com. Now the two guys behind the prolific series are making a movie/game crossover for the series, and Kickstarting the project.

Rusty Lake talk Rusty Lake, Twin Peaks,
and making money from properly free games

The Rusty Lake universe absolutely fascinates me. Consisting of nine free room escape oddities, and three longer premium puzzling adventures, each adds clues and confusion to a deeply creepy and unsettling mystery surrounding the eponymous lake. With the recent release of the superb Rusty Lake Paradise, I wanted to speak to the two-man development team to find out how it got started, where it's going,…

The bloody creepy Rusty Lake Paradise review

The long-running saga of Rusty Lake continues in Rusty Lake: Paradise, and I'm pleased to report this is one of its finest outings. I wasn't sure at first, but by the end I was deeply embroiled in its Lynchian psychic dystopia, once more tangentially exploring the lives of a creepy family, crow-faced creatures, and that fuzzy black man-thing that haunts my dreams.

Have You Played… Rusty Lake Hotel?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. The Rusty Lake games are beautifully macabre creations. Hotel is my favourite, I think, though Roots is perhaps more ambitious. If you haven't played them, you should play both. Here's why...

Rusty Lake Paradise delivers creepy puzzling next week

Returning to work after the holidays and looking over upcoming releases, oh! A new Rusty Lake game is out real soon! Rusty Lake Paradise, as it's named, will continue the creepy adventure-o-puzzler series that I know our John and Adam have both enjoyed. It's coming next week, on Thursday the 11th, and will visit a spooky island seemingly suffering those ten terrible plagues. Personally I'd…

Rusty Lake: Roots review

Rusty Lake Hotel [official site] is a game I have meant to write about on RPS for so long. I missed its release, and found it by luck on my phone when searching for interesting escape-the-room games. And wow, did I find interesting. And not only did I discover the incredible Rusty Lake Hotel game, a dark and devastatingly creepy murder mystery adventure, but also…

Rusty Lake: Roots Brings Eerie Adventure Puzzling

"Our never reviewing the utterly incredible Rusty Lake Hotel is our greatest failing," John declared yesterday after seeing the follow-up Rusty Lake: Roots [official site] hit PC. Hey, don't look at me - I only write news. Speaking of: Rusty Lake: Roots is now out, bringing more slightly eerily adventure-o-puzzling antics. It's exploring one man's family tree, playing through key moments of people's lives, which…
