Beetles are recurring items in the Rusty Lake series.
Cube Escape: Case 23Edit
At the Murder Scene, the corpse of the Woman is seen lying on the floor. When her mouth is interacted with, a beetle will crawl out and scuttle over to the wall. The player must follow the beetle around the room until it crawls over to the desk, where it can be squashed flat with an iron, revealing a key .
Rusty Lake HotelEdit
In Mrs. Pigeon's room, there is a table with a checkered board on top, with a beetle and a few stones on the board. In order to collect the beetle, the player must place more stones on the board to prevent it from leaving the board. Once caught, it can be placed on a small wheel connected to a generator, where it will produce electricity.
