Hey, you! With the face! We're looking for some opinions from our fans, in the form of this survey. Answer the questions within, and we'll give you a free copy of Telltale Texas Hold'em, Telltale's first game (and still the funniest poker game around). The survey is now over. Thanks to those who participated!
For those unfamiliar with the history, Telltale Texas Hold'em was originally intended as a sort of litmus test for Telltale's engine. It turned out to be a fun game, so we decided to release it! A couple of the characters are voiced by Telltale employees (Dudebrough is played by designer Brendan Q. Ferguson, who also appeared as the bug in Sam & Max, and the announcer is Greg Land, who was a designer on Telltale's CSI games), and music was provided by Jerry Logas, father of Heather Logas, another of our former designers. You may also recognize that guy in the black shirt from Sam & Max...
Interesting. I just received my hard copy of Telltale Texas Hold'em (with large box) in the mail a few days ago. I have actually owned the original download version since December of 2005, though, but just for kicks, I will still take the survey.

This will round off my collection of Downloadable Telltale games! That's nice. I was never all that interested in buying Telltale Texas Hold 'Em, but it's worth it at the price of "Free".

I really like Telltale Texas Hold'em: easily one of the best game you did. :-)

The emails are going out in batches. I think the first group (everyone who took the survey before today) will go out today. The rest, probably early next week.

Ive got a small enqiry, why is it, on the Pier 23 Band Album (which I own) the songs have very specific times, like "2:34:794", because on the computer or stereo that time is off by a few seconds, and having such a detailed time is rather confounding.

On the ninth question, is "Downloadable games (games that I download, install and pay for)" supposed to be there twice?

... then why is Theodore Dudebrough credited as 'himself' instead of mr. BQ? Hmm?
So, take the survey and just be patient? I can wait if I get a round figure for delivery.
We'll send out the next batch of free games this week.

I bought the game yesterday not knowing there was a survey,but i will give the code to a friend.to tell you the truth i was alittle discouraged by the lack of options(only tournament) and when you beat the tournament, it just ask you if you wanna play agains,no ballon,no confetty no next round just play again,it sounds wierd but reward is very important im games.There should be more challenges and more characters,but I was impressed by the funny commentary. Its a good start though, i hope you make a new and improved sequel.

Did you say free? That's all you have to say to get me to give you some marketing research!

Dang, I missed the survey. And it was the only Telltale downloadable game I didn't have.

Eh, not as funny as your other stuff, TTG, but still pretty good. Lenard- uh, I mean, Boris is still crying to his mama. And it's great to see all the great jokes from (or I should say "to") S&M 103.

I got it, but I think my parents deleted the email which had the activation code. *gets under desk and cries*

I would be interested in which game engine you use or used e.g. for "Tales of Monkey Island"? What's its name?
