Founder of Grimsborough

Statue of William Cooper in Cooper Park.

The city of Grimsborough was founded by William Cooper in 1845. It is known that William, at some point in his life, settled in the Historical Center district of the city along with his pet dog, Ellington.

According to William's descendant, Ashton Cooper, Grimsborough was only the leftovers of a small Pilgrim settlement before his ancestor built it.

William also has a statue of him built at Cooper Park in the Financial Center.

  • The name of the city, "Grimsborough", is a play on the words "grim" (very serious or gloomy) and "borough" (a town or district which is an administrative unit)—with "Grims" referring to the dark secrets of the city, and "borough" referring to the city itself. Hence, "Grimsborough" would be defined as a "very serious or gloomy city", reflecting the city's dark secrets which were finally unearthed in the city's final case.
  • Each district in Grimsborough features a different theme and/or focuses on a particular event, as described in the following:
  • After the player unlocks Pacific Bay after successfully solving all 56 cases across Grimsborough, they can switch between the cities anytime and as many times as they want thanks to the "Travel to Another City" feature which will be available for the player as soon as they unlock Pacific Bay. This feature was mainly added so that Pacific Bay players could travel back to Grimsborough in order to earn their remaining Gold Medals.
  • In the desktop version of the game, you must beat It All Ends Here in order to make the Airport district appear in the map; in the mobile/tablet version of the game, however, Airport is visible on the map from the very start of the game.
