Rusty Lake Paradise is the twelfth game by Rusty Lake and the third premium game. It is set in the same Rusty Lake location as the Cube Escape games, but is not considered part of the series, instead being a stand-alone game with some connections.

The game takes place in 1796 on an isolated island in Rusty Lake. The story is based around 10 plagues, thought to be a variation of the ten plagues of Egypt, which curses the island and its inhabitants after the main character's mother mysteriously dies. The player must interact with their family members around the island and partake in many ominous rituals in order to stop the plagues.

Walkthrough Walkthrough Edit

I remember that day when I returned to Paradise... the island of my family. Since I had received the message of my mother's death the blurred childhood memories started to become more clear. From the first glimpse of the island I could still feel my mother's presence. It's hard to forget someone who gave so much to remember.
