  • It seems that Pacific Bay was primarily modeled after California (Los Angeles in particular).
    • However, some of its districts may be more reminiscent of other US states (e.g. Bayou Bleu and Jazz Town are very similar to Louisiana; Rhine Canyon is an amalgamation of Arizona and Nevada whilst Paradise City and The Wastes resemble the latter).
  • Unlike Grimsborough's map, the Pacific Bay map features specific hints near a case marker, which hints the player about the murder detail of a particular case. (Note that the player must zoom in the map to notice these specific hints.)
    • For example, when you zoom in on the Case #2 marker, you can spot a car crash right beside it, which is intended to simulate the murder cause featured in that very case.
  • Pacific Bay was released on 20 November 2014 on the iOS version of the game.
