Criminal Case (often referred to as "CC") is a Facebook detective-themed hidden object game released on November 15, 2012. Developed and published by Pretty Simple, a top European social gaming company, Criminal Case has over ten million average monthly users. On 9 December 2013, Criminal Case was crowned the Facebook Game of the Year 2013.
After all the success, Pretty Simple released Criminal Case on iOS in New Zealand on 15 July 2014 and then in Australia on 21 July 2014, and stated that they would soon release the game to the Apple App Store worldwide.
In Criminal Case, the player begins as a rookie cop in the Grimsborough Police Department, partnered alongside Inspector David Jones. Together, the two investigate murders in the city of Grimsborough. Grimsborough features six districts, which are the Industrial Area, the Financial Center, the Historical Center, the University, the Maple Heights and the Airport. Grimsborough features a total of 56 cases.
After completing the first 56 cases of the game, the player travels to the city of Pacific Bay soon after getting promoted to the Pacific Bay Police Department. There, Frank Knight and Amy Young are assigned to be the player's partners in the investigations. Pacific Bay features ten different districts: Ocean Shore, Bayou Bleu, Inner City, Jazz Town, White Peaks, Ivywood Hills, Rhine Canyon, Innovation Valley, Paradise City, and The Wastes. Ocean Shore and Bayou Bleu have 5 cases each, while Inner City is slated for 7 cases. Pacific Bay is slated for a minimum of 52 cases.
The Inner Chaos is a disbanded anarchist organization.
Based in the Inner City district of Pacific Bay and led by Fredo Mancini, the Inner Chaos used to fight the traditionalism and extreme communautarism that led to things like murder.
The group had first become active years before the events of the game, covering walls with their tags, demonstrating, and causing troubles in the neighbourhood. Their actions were fairly peaceful at first, and then they began getting more and more radical until they ceased to operate.
The anarchists started showing signs of their return after the murder of a Chinese immigrant named Ling Zhang, much to Andrea Marquez's dismay as she realized that the group would be posing a possible threat to the Pacific Bay PD in the near future.
After causing a heap of trouble in town, the organization was finally shut down after Fredo Mancini was shot to death by Hannah Choi for an attempted suicide-bombing during his trial for plotting the murder of Daily Dawn editor-in-chief Vito Pioni.
