By definition, a casual game is a kind of video game that is usually played in under an hour and it can come in any genre or form. It features a simple gameplay, familiarity, and it has the ability to reach its final stage within a short period of time.


Did you know that hidden object games have played a vital role in the success of the casual games industry today? According to Patrick Wylie, the vice president of Big Fish Studios, a significant increase in sales of casual games can be attributed to the emergence of hidden objects game genre today. He also takes pride in saying that Big Fish Studios has especially defined and moved forward the genre into its state today. The company is known for developing and publishing Mystery Case Files games—and for the record, the games have reached over 100 million downloads worldwide!

While some people often view this genre as something they would play just to kill time, it surprisingly has positive benefits. An article on Gongtats interestingly says that hidden object games help you to look beyond the face value of things. Too deep for a game, right? But you cannot deny that by playing it, you actually learn how to see things for what they are and not, and what it is they are hiding. On a Scientific level, researchers claim that an improved performance on visual research and spatial working memory tasks are seen among the players of this genre. For what it’s worth, the universality of this game is what makes it even more appealing to players of all ages.
