Flux Family Secrets (also known as Flux) is a series of casual puzzle personal computer games[2] games developed by the independent game development company Skunk Studios.[2][1] The series is composed of games with ‘Fractured Object’ puzzles where, in order to progress through a game, the player must find several objects that have been disassembled and hidden somewhere in the rendered scene. The games in the series are published by Big Fish Games, and are also available for download from other video game download websites.[2][1][3][4]
