Puzzle Agent Patched

Steam News has word on a new patch now automatically available for Puzzle Agent with bug fixes, rules updates, and puzzle updates. The change notes follow.

Fixes

  • Render Layer Issues on NVidia 400 Series Video Cards – Fixes the graphics bug that blocked players at the first snowmobile puzzle.
  • Text Not Displaying on Non-English OS: Fixes issue that caused all in-game text to disappear if the game was running on an OS set to any language but English.

Rules Updates

  • Two puzzles— Maw of Madness and Hydraulic Headache – had additional rules text added that clarifies the requirements of the puzzles.

Puzzle Updates

  • Room Key Confusion: In the original version, the “NINE” text was much bigger and vertically-oriented. In this updated version it appears smaller, and is horizontal. The essence of the puzzle is still the same, but the changes make it more straightforward to figure out.
  • Cut Your Losses: In the original version, the goal was to draw a line connecting all the players that intersected with every pane of glass. In the updated version, the goal is identical to the first football puzzle: Draw a line connecting all the players that avoids every pane of glass.

That room key "puzzle" was idiotic; not surprised they changed it. I whipped out a pen and paper in the hope that it would be a symbolic representation of some non-decimal numeral system and I could actually have fun trying to solve it, when in reality it turned out to be something from a children's book. I guess I'm too used to playing all those crazy room escape games so I overthink this stuff.

I really enjoyed the game, though, but more for the ambience than the puzzles. Second best purchase of the Steam thanksgiving sale I do hope they make more.

(The best one was Mount&Blade: Warband)
