* DeconstructiveParody: This game is basically ''ProfessorLayton'', but with the main character noticing the stupid amount of puzzles in-game and a much more serious reason why: [[spoiler:most of the town is in some sort of cult that worship gnomes. The gnomes' main method of communication is puzzles. This has caused the entire town to become pathologically addicted to puzzles.]]

* CantGetInTroubleForNuthin: Agent Tethers never suffers any consequences for deliberately interfering with other government agencies, from Sheriff Bahg to the MenInBlack. The worst that happens is he gets locked in his hotel room, [[spoiler:whereas the guy who helped him is ReassignedToAntarctica.]]

* XMeetsY: The game is pretty much ''VideoGame/ProfessorLayton'' meets ''Film/{{Fargo}}'' and ''Series/TwinPeaks''.

** It's actually subverted. [[spoiler:On the hydraulics puzzle, one of the button falls and a Hidden Person tosses it back to him. They did take the foreman but that was because they needed Nelson's help.]]

They did take the foreman but that was because they needed Nelson's help.help not that it hurt much in the end. Isaac's kidnapping was necessary to solve the conflict in the second game a few months in-game later.]]

* DefectiveDetective: Although Nelson is shown to be a good detective, you can see that he'd rather be back in his basement office. This may be because he hasn't had a field mission in -- as he states -- "quite some time" (which mean he probably hasn't been on the field for a couple of YEARS) -- and that his specialty is puzzle solving. Not to mention all the creepy stuff going on in Scoggins.
