Telltale Announces Puzzle Agent

Telltale has announced Puzzle Agent for the PC, Wii, Mac, iPad, and iPod Touch.Going by what’s been seen by Destructoid, Puzzle Agent sees the Sam & Max dev step away from the traditional point-and-click adventuring and instead move towards Professor Layton style brain-teasers.Perhaps most interesting of all, though, is that the game’s art and story have been worked on by Graham Annable, well known for incredibly creepy stuff like this.Puzzle Agent casts you as Nelson Tether of the FBI’s Puzzle Investigation Division, who’s sent off to the town of Scoggins, Minnesota to investigate the closure of the town’s eraser factory, and for whatever reason this will involve solving a whole load of brain-teasers.
