From a Cube Escape Enthusiast...
This game is worth every penny. It is much longer than RL's other pay to play: Hotel. This was charming, dark, and definitely added some interesting bits to the Rusty Lake lore. It was creepy but not scary, and the puzzles were interesting. I wish that it would've been a little scarier, but it did not ruin the experience. My only real complaint is that when you do the bonus content afterward, you get nothing for it. I was under the impression that collecting the medals would get me some lore but it didn't give me anything.
I still consider this game money well spent, and I recommend playing the Cube Escape games as well.
I've played all the Cube Escape and Rusty Lake games, they are great! There is a creepy element to be sure, some dark humor and cartoonish violence, but it suits the overarching storyline. What the overall story IS I've no idea, I'm still trying to piece it all together, but it is a large part of the fun (an "Easter egg" gives an interesting clue, btw). A definite Twin Peaks vibe (even a couple of references in the earlier games) is there, which is nice. The puzzles are generally well balanced, and this is definitely their longest game so far - with replay value, even. I loved the "alchemy" game at the very end. I can't wait for the next installment!
Many conflicting feelings after completing this game. I have to say after playing the whole thing, I found the game itself enjoyable, but the story disturbing. It didn't bother me though, it was just sometimes too depressing and unpleasant. But it might bother others.
The game itself was okay, as it was long and it did in fact have a story. But I found the puzzles, for the most part, too easy. Definitely not as good as the Cube Escape series. The Cube Escapes were more surreal, scary (not just disturbing), and had harder to solve puzzles that were more fun. Oh well, I guess you can't get everything in one game.
