Madelyn Deutch plays a TV tech on a reality TV show called "Ghost Patrol", which is exploring a small town on the edge of Shadow Lake. Lea Thompson plays the psychic medium, Cassandra, who reveals unimaginable facts about a disturbing, unsolved mystery. "I’ve never played anyone like Cassandra before, and it was a bit of a dream come true. I like to play different kinds of people, and it was really fun playing a passionate psychic, which is a different character to the housewife I play on ABC Family's 'Switched at Birth,'" commented Lea Thompson.
“Incorporating the paranormal into Mystery Case Files: Shadow Lake gave us a lot of latitude to take the game in interesting directions that players will appreciate. Expect the unexpected!“ said Kale Stutzman, Director of Mystery Case Files: Shadow Lake. “Further, working with Lea, Madelyn and the other talented actors made the game as much fun to make as it is to play.”
Mobile Mystery Case Files fans can get in on the fun as well. In addition to the release of the newest Mystery Case Files game for PC and Mac, Mystery Case Files®: Return to Ravenhearst™, the most popular Mystery Case Files game to date, is available today on iOS for the iPad and iPhone. Mystery Case Files: Return to Ravenhearst takes players to Ravenhearst Manor, a mysterious 19th century mansion constructed by Charles Dalimar as a symbol of affection for his love, Emma Ravenhearst. In this game, the Queen of England has summoned the player back to the now-decrepit mansion to shed some light on the manor’s dark past and put the mysteries of Ravenhearst to rest, once and for all. Mystery Case Files: Return to Ravenhearst can be found at the Big Fish web site or on Apple's iTunes store.
