Puzzle Agent players, you have been heard. Telltale Games has announced that a sequel to last year's puzzle sensation is in development, and is set for a summer release. In addition, the first game will be available on the PlayStation Network this spring.

Telltale describes Puzzle Agent as "Professor Layton meets Fargo." The game stars U.S. Department of Puzzle Research agent Nelson Tethers and focuses on a puzzle-filled investigation in the bizarre town of Scoggins, Minnesota. It was the first game released under Telltale's pilot program, in which new ideas are tested in the marketplace before the company commits to the full episodic treatment.
