Telltale Games has confirmed to Cubed3 that Puzzle Agent for WiiWare has now been shelved. Nelson Tethers: Puzzle Agent was meant to be the next big hit on WiiWare from the 'Kings of Episodic Gaming,' following on from the massive success of Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People and Tales of Monkey Island.
Back in May 2010 it was revealed that in conjunction with artist Graham Annable, Puzzle Agent would be the first in a series of 'Pilot Program' games that brought quirky puzzle adventures to the world. Unfortunately, every other planned edition of the intriguing adventure has been released, with the exception of the Wii iteration. Now any hope of it ever appearing has been officially dashed:
We're always looking to get our titles on as many platforms as we can, but currently have no plans for a Puzzle Agent release on the Wii.
- Alan Johnson, Manager of Public Relations and Social Media at Telltale Games.
