Blue Tea Games's works are usually released through digital and online casual game distributor Big Fish Games
Big Fish Games
where the company enjoys critical acclaim and success through their Dark Parables series.

A typical Dark Parables game is a puzzle- and FROG-driven retelling of a popular fairy tale. A FROG (Fragmented Object Game) involves searching for fragmented parts of an object within a scene. Once all are located, the fragments self-assemble into a working object that can be used in a puzzle elsewhere in accordance with the narrative story.

Blue Tea Games launched a new series Macabre Mysteries in 2011 with a focus on the supernatural/horror aspect of an urban mystery. The company's biggest commercial success in 2007 was Forgotten Riddles: The Mayan Princess, which reached #1 on the Big Fish Games

* Forgotten Riddles: The Mayan Princess (2007)

The Mayan Princess is a HOG (hidden object game) that features a story, set during the 16th century, around the fate of a Mayan royal family.

As part of game play, a list of items for the player to find is usually presented in form of a riddle. For example, "You'll find I mark time with no tick and no tock; It's with sand that I mimic a modern day clock". The player will eventually realise it refers to an hourglass, which can be taken as a clue to advance through the game. According to a GameZebo
interview, Interface Design Artist Shawn Seil had created exactly 1,500 riddles for this game.
