To all the fans of blue tea games “Dark Parables” series we all have noticed that each game somehow has a connection with each other on way or another. I think I figured out at least most of these connections (I have to much time on my hands) and just want to share with the rest of you. If I missed something you can just tell me. :3

With the release of Jack and the Sky Kingdom today, I thought it was about time I recommended one of my favourite casual gaming series ever: the Dark Parables series, from Blue Tea Games.
Here’s why it’s awesome:
- fairytales with a twist (a lot of them actually)
- mix and match of fairytales in a really creative way
From the Blue Tea Games wikipedia page:
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.
There are six Dark Parables games so far and listen to me when I tell you that YOU SHOULD PLAY THEM IN ORDER, because they are all connected. One really cool thing about each game is that there’s always a teaser/hint towards the end about which tale is gonna be turned into a game next.
- Curse of the Briar Rose (main tale: Sleeping Beauty)
- The Exiled Prince (main tale: The Frog Prince)
- Rise of the Snow Queen (main tale: The Snow Queen)
- The Red Riding Hood Sisters (main tale: Red Riding Hood)
- The Final Cinderella (main tale: Cinderella)
- Jack and the Sky Kingdom (main tale: Jack and the Beanstalk)
