Rusty Lake: Roots Critic Reviews

While it’s not as impactful as Rusty Lake Hotel, or my favourite Cube Escape, Seasons, there’s an absolute ton going on here for a crazy tiny [price].

Rusty Lake: Roots manages to create an original and credible narrative without betraying its "room escape" nature. Compared to the previous titles in the series it is a more mature game, and it doesn't bore despite the increased length.

The bizarre and grim world of the Rusty Lake series has quickly become one of the standouts of the modern point-and-click genre.

7 / 10.0

An excellent adventure-puzzle game with a heavy macabre theme in an oil painting universe that keeps you so immersed you barely realise how much blood you spill until it is far too late, ultimately let down by bizarre puzzle solutions and issues with Flash player.
