I love the Rusty Lake se­ries, a col­lec­tion of sur­real point-and-click games that...well, it’s hard to ex­plain. Take Vic­to­rian Era aes­thet­ics, add in a dash of Wes An­der­son, and then make it all very, very gory and you’ve got an ap­prox­i­ma­tion of what’s go­ing on here. But it’s more than just sur­face-level weird­ness. The Rusty Lake se­ries is grap­pling with some deep themes in among the var­i­ous find-the-key puz­zles – themes of lone­li­ness and de­pres­sion, love, death, re­li­gion, and the oc­cult. You can get lost in all the sym­bol­ism here, and I strongly sug­gest you do. Or just play them be­cause they’re pretty damn solid (al­beit short) point-and-clicks. That’s fine, too.
