The name "Paradise" may seem like an odd choice for a game about an island cursed by ten plagues. But then, we wouldn't expect anything other than odd from the creators of the Rusty Lake series that is on track to expand later this year.
Rusty Lake Paradise thrusts players onto a "small, remote island in the 18th century." Following the death of your mother, the island seems to have become cursed with the ten plagues. But you have the opportunity to lift this curse, so it's "your job to go around the island, interact with your family and help them vanquish the plague."
Like its predecessors, Rusty Lake Hotel and Rusty Lake: Roots, the third full-length adventure in the series features distinctive hand-drawn artwork, as seen in the first screenshots released. Promising "a nice mix of puzzles, story and Rusty Lake atmosphere," the game will once again confront players with "ominous situations and bizarre rituals," but this time around will offer more freedom to explore its island setting.
We don't yet know when Rusty Lake Paradise will be released, but the game should be complete sometime before the end of this year for PC and mobile platforms. You can stay up to date on its progress through the official website, and while you wait can check out the developer's many freeware adventures set in the same universe.
