Mystery Case Files: Return to Ravenhearst Early Concept Art

The process of creating a new Mystery Case Files game requires a great deal of work by many talented people within Big Fish Games. Some of those individuals are the Big Fish Studios' artists. These artists spend a great deal of time drawing, painting, and rendering the graphics you see in select Big Fish Games releases. Before developers began creating Return to Ravenhearst, concept sketches and paintings were created to help the development team better visualize game play locations. These works also help everyone involved better understand the style, tone, and overall feeling of the game.
