You can watch my video for Chapter 1 or continue below for my step-by-step guide.
1. Look under the TV and plug in the cable that isn’t cut.
2. Turn right. Lift the curtain to reveal Harvey the parrot. Look in the mirror to learn that you’re cold.
3. Open the left box on the dresser and take the key.
4. Examine the right box and solve the puzzle by sliding the tiles around so the symbols match the symbols etched into the box. It should look like the photo below. Then open it and take the photo piece.
5. Turn right. Take the photo piece from behind the framed painting.
6. Grab the cigar from the left table and place the photo pieces in the frame.
7. Look at the flyer on the right table. It says RUSTY LAKE MENTAL HEALTH & FISHING. Turn to the other side to see:
“We will help you balance the substance of your past lives. After completion of our mental health program you will feel reborn.”
And then: NOT THE BLUE VIAL! – D (as in Dale?)
8. Turn right. Flip on the light switch.
9. Take the jacket from the coat hanger.
10. Use the key to unlock the bottom drawer of the dresser and get a wooden cube/block. Open all the other drawers to get scissors, a pencil, and another photo piece.
11. Look at the typewriter. It says:
“I woke up in this room.
I felt different, less real.
Where is she?”
12. Use the scissors to cut off a twig from the tree.
13. Turn right. Check the left light for another photo piece.
14. Go back to the mirror and use the jacket with it. There’s a ghost! Your reflection also asks for a cigar. So give it to him.
15. Place the wooden cube in the slot on the dresser.

really? that game just release yesterday
take the cigar and continue to burn the drawings, then cut the sheet with scissors and overlap it at the top, use the typewriter to enter the letters found, after having repeated for another two times you will get the code 910 to be selected on TV . at that point go where there is the screen and move the face according to the direction of the eyes, you will receive a shred of fabric to be put in the case 23. I hope I have been helpful to you
Thank you , was stuck on the face but because on the video u just see it moving it doesnΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t explain that u have to follow the eyes @justalady
then enter the codes you find in case 23 in the order of the letters DBAEC with the corresponding symbols, you will get a cassette, put it in the recorder and the parrot will fly away, you will get the third cube and the cabinet below will open
@Justalady where do I enter the code?
you will find a key with which you can open the door, exit and follow the shadow of the parrot you will find mr.crow that will give you a map, follow the x and points indicated by the stones moving with the map, collect the statuettes and proceed towards north of the map, arrive in front of a wall enclosure enter the three statues and proceed. congratulations, you have arrived at chapter 2. ╬ô├½├¡Γò₧├åΓö£ΓöÉΓö£ΓöÉ
I can’t get past the globe map part even though it looks like the pictures in this walk-through and every time I back out to see if it worked, I have to restart the map
You donΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t have to go back out to see if it worked. If you got it right, it will just clear.
help! i have a problem with moving the face, i move it without mistakes in the directions that eyes show relatively long, but nothing happens! is it a bug?
Has anything changed? Or has she given you any message?
you have to move her face in the other direction than her eyes are pointing
Does it take long to get to the next part of the face puzzle coz IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗ve done it for ages and no luck I have tried moving the face in opposite direction to eyes only when it tells you Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö¼├║the other wayΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö¼├æ and doing every time but it goes on forever can anyone help
The first movement is in opposite direction , you dont have to wait she say “move my face”.
When she says “the other way” you start the puzzle again. All the movements is in opposite direction.
I think they are like 10 movements in total.
So,do we have to move it before she says”The other way”?
I’ve been having the same problem. Been moving her face ‘the other way’ for a while now but still nothing.
Move the eyes in the direction they are pointing
You have to move the way her eyes are looking
I’ve been having the same problem, every time I move (in the opposite direction) it says “the other way” going on for a long time now.
Actually for me it was where she was looking
Maybe for the update?
Help I have tried too many times
Is to the same side she is looking, now.
Setting the hour hand at 1 and minute at 8 or 9 (or hour and minute hand vice versa (sorry, I don’t remember)), opens the third drawer below the clock. This gives a key which opens the cabinet near to the cryptic machine near the TV. There’s a hat inside it, which then taken to the mirror and put on the head, gives another symbol. I don’t what’s the use of it till now. And I don’t know what the symbols in the name files mean too.
The time is 9:10 which I used for the tv also.
Editing my previous comment:
Setting the time at 08:05, opens the third drawer below the clock. This gives a key which opens the cabinet near to the cryptic machine near the TV. There’s a hat inside it, which then taken to the mirror and put on the head, gives another symbol. I don’t what’s the use of it till now. And I don’t know what the symbols in the name files mean too.
How did you know to set it to 8:05?
Im stuck at the globe where i gotta grapple the 2nd gree eye.i put the hook n rope first.i cant put the water in after though
Tapthe eye alot
Hi! I feel like that wasn’t it.. One of the drawers was still locked, and so was one of the little boxes under the clock.. Anyone found out what else could be done?
Maybe that’s a part of a secret ending
hi, someone help me please, how am i supposed to get the red cube (?) cause’ i have the brown and the glass ones but i don’t find the red one
ItΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗s in the book on the shelf.
Im stuck in the boxes!!! the handle does not stay down and the water doesnt drain to the submarine help!!! Im a missing something?
You have to move the box with the gear underneath the box with the wine glass first so the pipes are lined up so the water has somewhere to go. I was stuck on that too.
Is there any kind of synopsis of the story of all the Rusty Lake games so far? I’ve played them all but there are so many that it is hard to remember how they all fit together to get us to this point. Like I feel like we’ve learned a lot about Dale and Laura’s respective backstories and their connection but it is almost impossible to remember by now.
Maybe this will help a bit?
does anyone know how to get past the shadow pile at the end to follow the map to the x ? the shadow just keeps coming at me..
You need to tap the weird spot on him that keeps moving. At least, I *think* thatΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗s what did it.
I have the same problem. I keep tapping the weird spot, but it doesn’t work!
I cannot pass the shadow, it keeps returning me to the same place
How long should the eye thing take?
Not too long.

Chapter 1 secret achievement question — Aside from the people listed in the credits for the 4th achievement, there are symbols next to the following names in the Chapter 1 directory drawer. Any clues as to whether this is a secret achievement, and what the order might be?

Joel Bridge (spiral)

I can’t take the yellow cassette
When I color in the door drawing with the pencil, nothing happens. I’ve tried many times and ways, including exactly as in the walkthrough, the whole picture, etc. Help please!
Sounds like a glitch. 🙁 You might want to contact the developer.
Make sure pencil stays within the outline
Nothing is happening when I try drawing to fill in the man? The pencil leaves a mark but it won’t change like in the video walk through…!
Same issue. It let me draw more pictures thohgh.
I have got to the wall and I only have 3 statues I picked up the crow and woman and when I got to the wall there was already one in there (maybe I did it inadvertently) I have been back and forth but I canΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t find another statue, IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗ve been to all the crosses, can anyone help me please cos IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗ve got the next chapter and IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗m not sure I can play it unless IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗ve first finished chapter 1.
I donΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t know what the statue in the wall was itΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗s in the bottom right side of the wall
Many thanks in advance
The same thing happened to me except I went to the X with the woman first, got nothing from it. Then I got the crow statue, then the man. When I went back to the woman statue it still didn’t show. I didn’t buy Chapter 2 but it does suck that I can’t finish the game. (Ignore how late I am lol)
Where is the evidence 1: body of woman? can’t find it…

Help, please! I have this game on my Android. The problem is with moving her face. I’m pretty sure that I’m doing it right (as I’ve seen the walkthrough) but every time that I move her face to the opposite position of her eyeballs, she says: “on the other way” and it’s a long time nothing happened. what is the problem? What should I do?
I m stuck where you have to move her face -i moved it in the direction opposite to her eyes,she keeps on saying “The other way”,is it right or not?When I move it in the direction where her eyes are pointing ,she says “You are wrong.” Until when should I move her face?
So IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗m about half way through playing all Cube Escape and Rusty Lake games in order and loving them, today I visited their Rusty Lake website a found a simple but fun game in the banner at the top of the page. Next to the drawing of Rusty Lake Hotel thereΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗s a man in a boat, above him it says Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö¼├║click hereΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö¼├æ. Click and keep clicking to direct him left and right to catch jumping fish and falling leaves. Each item caught turns on a light in one of the hotels windows. Just be careful not to be killed by the giant creature that lives in the lake!!!
Where do you find the second eye
The moment when you draw… After couple of pictures changed with drawing on them I tried my best and painted the entire sheet with woman on it red. And just stuck there, slides are not changing. Tried restarting the game. After I found a tutorial where it just shows you to fill in the picture I was pissed off. Why is it not working? Is it missing some part or is it a bug?
Am i the only one having a problem with finding Mr. Crow.
Where do I get the matches from??
I can’t seem to figure out how to use the phone. Please help!
The phone refuses to work. I know how to use a rotary phone but I’ve done it a million times and it won’t work.
I don’t have water…! From where do we get the water…? Pls
How do I get water for the bottle in the globe, canΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t seem to find it….. IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗m big dumb
I can’t get through the phone part, It wont dial the right numbers and I picked up the phone before doing it. And I even uninstalled the app and downloaded it back and still, it won’t work. I’m just bout to get rid of it.
Stuck at #84. Someone help
I accidentally close the pipe before pour the water in the glass (in head with lot boxes stage), and I can’t do anything now. Does anyone have solution?
Where did you find the pipe?
The head water and the glass water are not the same puzzle. The glass water is on the top shelf with the evidence book.
N╬ô├╢┬úΓö£Γòæo consigo passar da fase do globo, mesmo fazendo esse trajeto n╬ô├╢┬úΓö£Γòæo acontece nada comigo
Where do I find the water?
In cube escape paradox chapter 1 harveyΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗s song doesnΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t play (no drawings of musical notes come out), and Harvey does not leave. Help!
It finally worked! Sorry for the inconvenience. Best regards.

Is there only 1 possible ending? I finished it but wondering if there are other possible endings.
I can’t put things into the cassete player. How do I do that
When playing the cassette tape, you don’t have to read the text backwards. You just have to play it backwards at the part where it says “channel six six nine”.
82. I change the channel on the TV to 910 but nothing happens.
How do you open the globe
Ive done the puzzle i go out of it and try to open the globe and IT WONT OPEN
