Can't get enough of RustyLake!

I've played all the Rusty Lake games and this is my favourite to date. For me the story was far more interesting that Rusty Lake Hotel. The story line was reminiscent of the other mini games.
The long game play was also fantastic. I never want these games to end and I'm happy to pay for longer games as they are so enjoyable.
I thought the puzzle mix was perhaps a little weighted to the easier puzzles. That being said there were a few challenging ones that took a while.
The game keeps giving. When you think the experience may be over.....think again.
Fabulous! Love these games! Thank you!
Looking forward to the next, and the next, and the next.....

More quirky fun

It tests you and having the walkthrough helps when you get stuck. Second time through it is easier. Makes you think outside the box

Best point and click

This series is amazing, and Roots is the best of them. A mysterious and macabre narrative, with puzzles that are tough but still logical. Can’t wait for the next premium game from this studio.
