TellTale Games has finally updated Puzzle Agent with the much needed graphical fix, with version 1.1 now being optimized for the Retina Display. As mentioned in our review, the game originally contained issues with encoding during cutscenes, which meant that the visuals were extremely blurry for a good part of the adventure. Now that this has been fixed, the game should be much more playable for most casual players.
If you haven’t picked up Puzzle Agent yet, it’s currently on sale at $0.99 and also included in Apple’s Big Games, Great Prices roundup. One word of caution though. The update will, unfortunately, render your previous saved data useless. So for those of you who’re nearly finished the game (or don’t wish to start over), you may want to hold off on v1.1 until a later time.
A Puzzling Adventure with a Twist
When White House inquiries to the Scoggins Eraser Co. are answered only with curious puzzles, Nelson Tethers from the U.S. Department of Puzzle Research is sent on the case.
The strange events in Scoggins will challenge every ounce of Tethers’ expertise, and possibly his very wits too, with brainteasers at every turn: mazes, logic puzzles, riddles, and more. He soon realizes that these – along with the clinically pre-occupied townspeople, secret societies, and peculiar sounds from the forest – are intimately connected to the core mystery. And what’s with the gnomes?
* Plentiful puzzles to challenge your neurons. See if you can find every puzzle to solve the mystery of Scoggins — mazes, logic, riddles, brainteasers and more.
* Investigate the strange, peculiar and mind-boggling to crack the case! Your discoveries provide clues to the larger mystery crippling the town, or uncover puzzles that must be solved to reveal answers … or even more questions.
* Hunting for Hints: Chewing gum helps Agent Tethers think and solve. Find and collect gum wads around the town to uncover hints if you get “stuck” in any puzzles.
* Creative collaboration with indie comic artist Graham Annable (Grickle comics and animated shorts)
Important note for update: If you are currently in the midst of playing through Puzzle Agent, we recommend that you complete the full game before updating. Save games do not carry over with update.
