Soundtrack Soundtrack Edit

  • The Soundtrack for this game contains 3 specially composed tracks from composer Victor Butzelaar. It can be purchased via bandcamp.com. This does not include the gramophone music known as the "Lake Suite", which is through incompetech.com under the name Hot Swing.
  • The game also features a rendition of traditional celebration song "Happy Birthday to You", which is sung in honour of Dale. This is the only track in a Rusty Lake game to feature lyrics sung by a character, not including the rhythmic squawking of Harvey in Cube Escape: Theatre.

Trivia TriviaEdit

  • By inserting the code from Rusty Lake Hotel (1894) into the snowglobe, the player will see a secret scene. Harvey appears in anthropomorphic form standing next to Mr Owl. The Souls of the guests manage to break out of the tanks, and attack Harvey. A beam of light shines down on the Hotel entrance. Harvey flies away in bird form from the Hotel.
  • The text on the chest reads: प्रेत ເຜດ
    • प्रेत (Preta) - Hungry Ghosts (Corrupted Soul).
    • ເຜດ (phed) - Spirit which is unable to be reborn.
  • Since Dale's birthday was revealed in Rusty Lake Roots, we can conclude that the game takes place on the 18th of December, 1939.
