Rusty Lake is an indie game studio based in Amsterdam, founded by Robin Ras & Maarten Looise. Since spring 2015 we have developed 13 surrealistic adventure games that take place in the Rusty Lake universe. Inspired by the humor and uneasiness of David Lynch's TV series Twin Peaks we decided to create our own imaginative universe called Rusty Lake. We tried to add something new to the point-and-click genre by creating a lot of suspense and atmosphere in an "escape room" setting.
All of the games have interesting and strange connections with each other and every instalment revealing more about the Rusty Lake mystery. In our 4 years of existence we have released ten free Cube Escape episodes and 3 premium games: Rusty Lake Hotel, Rusty Lake: Roots and Rusty Lake Paradise which are available on iOS, Android, Steam and Itch.io. Our latest release is Paradox, a combined Rusty Lake film and Cube Escape game, which was released September 20th 2018. We owe a big part of our success and accomplishments to the Rusty Lake community. Since the beginning of Rusty Lake, we tried to involve our community as much as possible. We created as many places as possible to keep them connected during the development of our new games and make them feel that they are part of the stories. The amount of fan art we receive is incredible and now we even have fans with Rusty Lake tattoos.
Our community also helped us reaching our Kickstarter goal for Paradox - our first movie and game crossover - in just 9 hours. And we are very proud that we published the Paradox comic book created by fanartist Lau Kwong Shing on May 11th 2019.
We are currently working on The White Door, a brand new point-and-click adventure that comes out on iOS, Android, Steam and itch.io on January 9, 2020! The game uses a split-screen for interaction and has a very different style, gameplay and way of storytelling than any of our previous games. Furthermore it will be co-published by our own publishing label Second Maze, which we started to make interesting collaborations possible and helping out other devs.
