Mystery Case Files: Fate's Carnival is an adventure-puzzle casual game developed by Big Fish Studios and distributed by Big Fish Games. It is the tenth installment in the Mystery Case Files series and was released on November 26, 2013.[1]


The player returns to the carnival grounds which were the setting of Mystery Case Files: Madame Fate, an earlier game in the series, in order to help Madame Fate's spirit, and to assist various of the carnival workers who have been imprisoned or trapped and with Madame Fate's cat, Isis, to help even the odds.

The player is confronted by Alister Dalimar, father of Charles Dalimar (the primary antagonist of the Ravenhearst storyline). Throughout the game, it is revealed that Alister is trying to create a new earthly body for himself with no human weaknesses. After the player rescues six carnival workers, finds two dead, and discovers that four are working for Alister, he/she heads off to put an end to Alister's ambition for good. In the end as Alister tries to finish it off, the detective ends his life by stabbing his black heart inside the book with a single silver badge, and everything returns to normal.

Through the bonus content, the player is asked by Madame Fate's spirit to help free her soul from captivity. Throughout the altered carnival after Dalimar's death, the player finally freed Madame Fate's soul, which went off to rest in peace, with Isis, thanking the player, following her from behind.

The secret room bonus tells us the next sequel to another mystery that's about to happen, as the detective decides to return to Dire Grove once again.
