Something puzzle/mystery fans will enjoy.

You portray Nelson Tethers an FBI agent who's employed at the lowest department of the Bureau which is Puzzle Agency. Nelson's job is sometimes boring as there's little cases that require his assistance in solving hard puzzles. Until he was visited by a mysterious person who left him a message that says "Scoggins" on it. He then got a call from his superior to head to the town of Scoggins, MN to find the missing head of the Eraser Factory. He travels to the small town that is known for erasers and Nordic souvenirs. Upon Nelson's investigation he learns more about the head of the factory and the people who knew him. However he discovers that something is not right about the town he's in. Almost everyone acts suspicious and Nelson keeps seeing some gnomes stalking his presence in town.

This is a really thought out game with a well written story. Plus the suspense will make you want to finish the game to see the ending. The characters are appealing with great voice overs and clever acting. Telltale did a great job with this one as they did with their previous games.

Keep in mind that a sequel is coming up soon. As after playing this game, you'll want more.
