Erasers. Erasers? Eraaaaaaaseeeers!
Welcome to a new installment of “Explain that Telltale Games Release!”. This time around we have a game that is easier to do a breakdown of: Nelson Tethers, Puzzle Agent. The name says it all: you’re an FBI agent (as in Federal Bureau of Investigation) named Nelson Tethers… and you solve puzzles for a living. You’re even an EXPERT puzzle solver, just to make it be extremely clear that when puzzles are the problem, there’s only ONE guy that can solve them. Think of this as a cross between a bit of Monkey Island and some Professor Layton sprinkled here and there and you’ll get the idea.
TellTale Games’ “Puzzle Agent” is hitting the PSN on April 19th, for $9.99. The game is a “darkly twisted story about a missing eraser factory worker and a bunch of creepy gnomes!” It has a number of puzzles to solve and, as you can see, a unique style.
Alan Johnson, the Community Manager for Telltale Games describes the game best.
You play as Nelson Tethers, the ONLY agent in the US Department of Puzzle Research. Tethers is sent on a rare field assignment to Scoggins, Minnesota to investigate what happened to the factory that supplies the White House with all its erasers. To get to the bottom of this twisted mystery, players will have to overcome plenty of warped brain-bending conundrums.
The game features cartoonist Graham Annable’s unique narrative and visual style combined with the cinematic storytelling style that Telltale has been establishing. The mood and setting are heavily inspired by an eclectic set of influences including Nordic folklore, David Lynch, and the Coen brothers with a dash of Stanley Kubrick. Oh, and gnomes.
