Puzzle Agent information coming this afternoon

The Mystery of Scoggins teaser has now been revealed to be Nelson Tethers: Puzzle Agent. Nelson Tethers: Puzzle Agent is a puzzle game similar to Professor Layton & the Curious Village on the Nintendo DS. The game features characters designed by former Telltale artist Graham Annable.
Nelson Tethers is the only agent at the U.S. Bureau of Puzzle Investigation. He has to investigate why the eraser factory in Scoggins, Minnesota has shut down. He discovers a bizarre event has left everyone obsessed with puzzle solving, to the point where they feel compelled to solve the puzzles non-stop. Nelson must unravel the mystery by using his puzzle solving skills. He encounters elves along the way, known as the hidden people, who might hold a connection to the closure of the factory.
Nelson Tethers: Puzzle Agent is the first game to be released under Telltale's new Pilot Program. The pilot program will work like a pilot of a television series, where a game is first tested to see it's popularity potential. If the pilot is successful, a complete series could be ordered.
The game will be released this June on PC, Mac, iPhone, and iPad.
Telltale's Puzzle Agent page has been updated with a graphic telling us to check back later this afternoon. I'll update this page once the page has been updated. :)
