Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery follows young boy Jacob and the happenings during his time at summer camp, where he finds and befriends the Bigfoot of legend. Together the pair embark on a string of adventures, solving puzzles that will test players' logical, math, lateral thinking and observations skills.
Lucid Games, formed in 2011 by former members of Geometry Wars and Project Gotham Racing studio Bizarre Creations, built Jacob Jones using Unreal Engine 3 and tailored controls for touchscreen devices. While the aesthetic looks cartoony, with vividly colored environments and characters that look like tiny toys, Lucid has stated that story is one for all ages with a "wicked adult undertone."
