Last year saw Puzzle Agent, a uniquely quirky and darkly humorous puzzle game, hit the app store to much critical acclaim. Think of it as Twin Peaks meets Fargo meets Profesor Layton. Sorta. Anyway, the second title in the series has finally arrived for the iPhone ($4.99) and iPad ($6.99). Maybe we can finally get to the bottom of those cursed red gnomes…
Here’s the official description:
CREEPY PUZZLE ADVENTURE WITH MYSTERY & DARK HUMOR!
Agent Nelson Tethers just solved the biggest case of his career. So why isn’t he satisfied? There’s still the case of a missing eraser factory foreman, a whispering madness is still creeping from mind to mind, and a troubling recurrence of… creatures… is lurking into the town.
The FBI’s Department of Puzzle Research has marked the case closed — are they sweeping it under the rug? Or worse, do they not even care? Worried that the case will languish forever unsolved, Tethers must go rogue and venture back to the eerie town of Scoggins, Minnesota to solve the mystery of “the Hidden People” once and for all.
