Posted by Conor Murphy on February 16, 2010

The Olympic Flame Relay passed by our office in Vancouver, British Columbia over the weekend. Employees were on hand to watch the festivities and grab a couple photos. It's great having our office in the heart of Vancouver. Truly a magnificent city to live in or visit. One Big Fish employee saw the first photo below and quipped, "It looks like two poor saps trying to keep a crowd of zombies at bay with torches..."

MCF: Dire Grove Speculation Gone Wild!

Posted by Conor Murphy on November 12, 2009

With the release of the Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove sizzle reel, speculation about the game has accelerated dramatically. Every MCF game has had secrets buried within and MCF: Dire Grove is likely no different. The question is, how much was shared in the sizzle reel? Big Fish Games’ Studios is tight lipped regarding what is or is not in the video (they responded to my desperate pleas with slightly evil smiles). That being the case, it is up to us to contemplate, speculate, conjecture, and guess at what the video is trying to tell us. I’ve captured the most intriguing posts from the Dire Grove Speculation forum thread for you to take a look at. You’ll be interested to know I ran these by Studios and they looked a little nervous...keep the posts coming! tunaontoast on Nov 10, 09 1:03 PMOK, car in the video has a license plate which is...JXH2M6.....any suggestions ???? emmyjayne on Nov 10, 09 1:14 PMWhen the grad student is making her presentation it looks like the slide shown on the screen is a grave yard (with Celtic cross headstones). So I wonder if they open a crypt gate that let’s something evil out where it’s been buried...Read more

Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove Sizzle Reel Released

Posted by Conor Murphy on November 10, 2009

"In the Fall of 2009, four graduate students traveled to a small township near Blackpool, England. They were never heard from again." With these words we begin the latest journey in the Mystery Case Files series. The release of Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove is just around the corner and Big Fish Games’ Studios is proud to share the Dire Grove sizzle reel with you. Head over to the Official Mystery Case Files site to see the video and gain insight into where the Mystery Case Files series is going...or not... The video is likely as much of a surprise to you as it was to us. Big Fish Games’ Studios is never one to be redundant. Each new installment to the Mystery Case Files game series has taken the series to a new level. This was especially true with Mystery Case Files: Return to Ravenhearst. It appears Studios intends to the same with Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove. The sizzle reel clearly hints at the Mystery Case Files series heading in an interesting new direction by incorporating actual video footage into the game. As always, specific game details are under wraps at this point so we’re not entirely sure, but we’ll try to dig for more information regarding where and how this footage is woven into game play.Read more
