There’s going to be one big reason for gamers to be thankful this Thanksgiving. Big Fish is proud to announce the ninth game in the Mystery Case Files series: Mystery Case Files: Shadow Lake will be available for Macs and PCs on November 21st, 2012!!

And if the news of a new Mystery Case Files game, is not enough to get you excited, Mystery Case Files: Shadow Lake is featuring film & television star Lea Thompson and her daughter Madelyn Deutch. Lea is best known for her starring role in the award winning ABC Family series, “Switched at Birth”; for her lead role in the sitcom “Caroline in the City”; and her role in “Back to the Future”, where she played Ms. Lorraine Baines.

“Big Fish’s Mystery Case Files is one of their most popular franchises, and I can say after working on this game I have become a born-again gamer,” said Lea Thompson.  “This game was fun to work on, and I enjoyed working with the team from Big Fish Studios.  As an added bonus, I got to work with my daughter.”

In Mystery Case Files: Shadow Lake, Ms. Thompson plays a psychic medium that helps the Master Detective solve puzzles during their investigation of an eerie ghost town’s mysterious destruction.   Her daughter, Madelyn, stars as a co-host of a Ghost Patrol TV show that’s filming on-scene to uncover the haunted legacy of the town.  This past summer, both actresses traveled to places in and around Seattle to work with Big Fish’s in-house studio to film the live scenes that are used in the game.

“The team was so excited to have the opportunity to work with Lea and her daughter,” said Kale Stutzman, Director on Mystery Case Files. “Their inclusion really raises the bar for the series, and we can’t wait for Mystery Case Files fans—and new players alike—to interact with their characters.”
