Axes are a recurring item in the Rusty Lake series, appearing in multiple games. There are several varieties and styles of axe that appear, from small hatchets to a larger battleaxe.
Cube Escape: SeasonsEdit
In the Winter, the axe can be found in the dresser's bottom drawer. It is used to cut down the boards covering the window. Later, after Harvey has been freed in the Spring, it is used to break open the window to let her into the Room.
Rusty Lake HotelEdit
In Mr. Boar's room, there is a large ornamental axe next to his chair. When he is using the bathroom, the player unfastens the bolts holding it in place, and ties it to a rope, which is then lifted up above the seat. When Mr. Boar returns, the player cuts the rope holding the axe with a knife, causing it to fall and kill Mr. Boar.
Rusty Lake: RootsEdit
In 1860, James Vanderboom has moved into his new house. There is a key hidden behind a painting, which is used to unlock a drawer containing the axe. It is then used to chop a nearby log into smaller pieces. The resulting wood is put into the fireplace. In 1924, Rose is with her Dog by the well. Someone sends up a paper airplane asking for help, and requests food. In order to grill the Fish that was caught, the axe is used to chop down a branch on the tree, providing wood.
