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 ators 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 (News - Alert). 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
