Mystery Case Files Edit
Mystery Case Files (also known as MCF) is a hidden object casual game series developed by the internal studios of Big Fish Games and the recent games were also developed by Elephant Games and Eipix Entertainment. The series is known for its ‘Hidden Object’ puzzles where, in order to progress through a game, the player must find a certain number of items hidden somewhere on a painted scene. There are usually thousands of items hidden in the game and they vary in their difficulty to find them.
Storyline and characters have played an increasingly important part in the development of the series, especially from the third game onwards. The game MCF: Ravenhearst begins the Ravenhearst story-arc that continues throughout most games in the series. The series has even gone on to produce four spinoff games and four books written by Jordan Gray
Big Fish Games "estimates that 100 million people have at least sampled trial versions" of the MCF games since the initial launch of MCF: Huntsville.
