"The Book of Grickle" creator Graham Annable is collaborating with Telltale Games for "Puzzle Agent," a new video game described by designer and writer Mark Darin and Annable himself as deriving inspiration from "The X-Files," "Fargo," "Twin Peaks" and the works of David Lynch and Stanley Kubrick. Wrap all of that together with Annable's unique style and "Puzzle Agent" suddenly becomes a can't miss game, plot be damned.
But if you want to know a bit more about the story, you don't need to be a puzzle master yourself - according to Telltale's official website
, "Puzzle Agent" focuses on Nelson Tethers, the lead (and only) agent in the US Department of Puzzle Investigation. Nelson is sent out on a field assignment to Scoggins, Minnesota to uncover exactly why a local eraser factory has suddenly stopped manufacturing products.
What follows is "a mystery story wrapped around numerous brain teasers and puzzles," according to Annable, as "Puzzle Agent" promises to combine classic adventure game mechanics with standalone brainteasers and puzzles.
Still not sold? How about this - you can pre-order the game now for $9.99
