Pull out your chewing gum and put your thinking caps on, because Telltale Games’ Puzzle Agent 2 is set for release on June 30. Sequel to the smash hit Puzzle Agent, Puzzle Agent 2 picks up with FBI Agent Nelson Tethers having “solved” the Scoggins Eraser Factory case. However, with factory foreman Isaac Davner missing and the “Hidden People” mystery largely unsolved, troubled Agent Tethers goes rogue and ventures back to the eerie town of Scoggins, Minnesota to solve the biggest case of his career.
Puzzle Agent is developed in collaboration with comic artist and animator Graham Annable which really adds a lot of character and charm to the game. PC Gamer gave it their “Puzzle Game of the Year” award and IGN listed it as their best iPhone game of E3 2010.

“The Puzzle Agent series illustrates what can happen when top indie development talent has an opportunity to shine in front of a big audience,” said Telltale CEO Dan Connors. “As the first game in our Pilot Program, Puzzle Agent validates our decision to create the program and set the stage for Puzzle Agent 2 as well as other amazing indie projects.”
I have to say, I love Telltale, they’re single handedly revitalising the graphic adventure genre while ushering in episodic gaming to the masses. Puzzle Agent is one of those games that really have a soul with it’s Fargo meets Twin Peaks mixed with a Saturday morning cartoon, which is really unique and refreshing to see.
