Available Nov 22nd!

We're finally talking about the game! Let's hang out and discuss things. Learn about the Pre-Order bonus and other TF2 unlocks over at IGN PC's Poker Night preview, with a ton of other info at the Poker Night website.

Official Poker Night website
Images, trailers, FAQs, etc! Also Valve has posted an update to the Team Fortress site about it, too.

Trailer!
Check out the trailer at the official Poker Night website, or Telltale's YouTube channel.

Your forum questions answered:

Does everyone get the unlocks, no matter where they bought it?
Update: This has changed a bit! Yes, everyone gets the updates! No matter whether you buy the game from Steam, or from Telltale directly, you will be given a code to download a Steam copy. The Steam release is the only version which can talk to Team Fortress 2, so if you'd like to get your hats, be sure to play with that version. Telltale customers who have purchased Poker Night can get their Steam code here.

I pre-ordered before you announced the unlocks! (and/or at PAX in person!) Am I still eligible for the poker visor pre-order bonus?
Of course! Like your grandpa always said, a pre-order is a pre-order is a pre-order. Any orders placed, ever, in all time, right up until the game is released, will count.

Tycho talks?!
He does! He's voiced by Kid Beyond, who Telltale fans may recognize as Bugeye in Tales of Monkey Island, and the Narrartor in Sam & Max The Devil's Playhouse. Fans of geek music may recognize him from his appearances at those sorts of events, too (eg: beatboxing vs drum machine faceoff at this Jonathan Coulton concert). We felt from his experience in those roles that he could capture the snarkiness, the gravitas, and the weird cultural crate digging any respectable Tycho needs to get through the day.

Official Mini-FAQ!
(Read the full FAQ here)

Is this a real thing?
You bet your britches. Poker Night at the Inventory is a full-on no-limit Texas hold'em game developed by Telltale in collaboration with Homestar Runner, Penny Arcade and Valve.

Ok, this game has Max, The Heavy, Strong Bad and Tycho in it? It's gotta be pricier than the platinum dipped power glove I just bought on eBay, right?
Nope, $4.95. Four dollars, ninety-five cents. Why? Because we love you and want you to play it, that's why.

What's this all about, anyway?
Poker Night at the Inventory is about getting characters we know and love into an environment where they can drop their guards and be themselves. You play cards and characters have the sorts of conversations you always imagined they had but have never heard. We set out to make a game that was big on character interaction because we thought it'd be cool to hang out and play cards with guys like Tycho, Max, Strong Bad and The Heavy.

  • TRAILER!! FINALLY!!!

    As a Penny Arcade enthusiast, I had to say I was a bit apprehensive about Tycho in general, especially the fact that he would be voiced. While his design's kinda "eh..." (but only because I have a fangasm every time I see Mike Krahulik's art. Prolly.), I'm actually pretty impressed by his voice. True, I always imagined it a little deeper and more "Smarter than thou, a-hole," sounding--Kid Beyond's voice reminds me more of my head-voice for Gabe, actually--but I like it. I see it growing on me in the future.

    Plus, did anyone slow down to see the stills of the TF2 bonuses? The Pac-Man watch has Gabe/Tycho blood on it! BLOOD!!

    Plus Heavy and Max and Strong Bad are pretty cool, too.

  • So we're getting an email for the visor, and win the other items in a poker game and take them to TF2? Wowser!

    You're the best Telltale.
    It's also really good to hear Strong Bad again.
    I hope Tycho's watch is like one of the unlocks. I haven't used the regular invis watch since the Spy update. Maybe I need to get reacquainted with it.

  • @GinnyN said: I just wanna know exactly what is in the Pictures on the Wall next to Tycho. I can see the Sam and Max Art with the Giant Key but, the other two?

    The portrait is of Graham McDermott, author of the crazy dialog tool that powers much of the character interaction in our games. The others I won't go into yet!

  • @Strongsadioware said: Tycho's voice sounds familiar...

    It's Kid Beyond (Andrew Chaikin.)

    He's:
    - Max (In Culture Shock)
    - The Narrator
    - Papierwaite
    - Coronado De Cava
    - Bugeye
    - Various others in ToMI

  • See the gun, badge, glasses etc. are they availlable forever but you only get one of each? Also, can you get them through the Telltale version? If not, how do you? Or is it just you need the steam version? Sorry for asking questions that have been asked already, but just curious.

    Anyway, looking forward to this, should be brilliant!

    The Visor is pre-order only. the other items are your winnings from the game. You can get all the items from either Telltale or Steam. Telltale version does NOT add the game to your steam account like the Devil's Playhouse did, but use an alternate system.

  • What if you don't have TF2, then unlock any of the items and buy TF2 later?
    Do you not get the items? Do you need to get them again? A little clarification would be great.

    The other one looks like the Merleader from Tales of Monkey Island.

  • Don't mean to be rude, but when am I supposed to receive the mail with info on how to pick up the visor? : P
