    Whoa! That's weird... :confused: Did you play around with the Tiki code thing at all before it appeared?

    Actually, that was the first thing that I tried when I discovered the page (before I even opened up the game). It said "Unlocked Map Piece," but I figured that it was just the first or second map, as nothing else was available. Then, when I went into the game, there was a completed map in my inventory. I went back to the page, and there it was. It has a mask icon, and is situated on the second page.

    xtrmntr... that's some name. Can I just call you Bob?

  • For anyone wanting help finding the landmarks, I made a map showing all the nodes and where they lead to... (it does NOT include the treasure hunt solutions)

    Just be warned that its an HD image over 3MB in size so it can be used as a wallpaper, or printed at high reolution.

    Da Map

  • I confess, I also played around with the code wheel and now have a third map as well as unlocking the first and second in an unsportsmanlike way... I can't play TMI on this old laptop and I get so tempted!

    Does this mean I can't do it the proper way and pretend this never happened D:

  • Yeah I mis-entered the one code on the site and now its in my game inventory like I found it...

  • Hey everybody, thanks for letting us know! (And rest assured, a *real* coupon code will appear on that prize page shortly... =) We'll be rolling out new maps & prizes throughout the season & so it's good to know that even though *this* one snuck out a little early, the system we've put in place to manage the rest of the releases seems to be working properly. Good luck finding the rest of the maps!

    Thanks, man. Sorry about the trouble. :)

  • @LuigiHann said: You should update the launcher so that you can "launch game again" after you've quit, without closing the launcher and opening it again... If we're to be expected to keep jumping in and out of the game.

    I would also really like that feature!

    Also somehow my treasures don't carry over to the website automatically, I always have to enter the code over the Tiki, even when I choose "open Telltale page now" ingame...

  • @Hitman said:
    1) Does this mean that for each episode we will search for the treasure on the same island? Or will the other islands have treasures too?

    The treasure hunting mechanic is only in Launch of the Screaming Narwhal... at least for now. I'm not sure of future plans, but I don't be surprised if all of the treasure hunting content continues to appear there.

    2) Will this treasure hunt thingy work with the DVD version of the game? Since it's not online, how will you make this happen?

    I think this is a "running during the main run of the season only" type deal.


    3) Why not add some rewards for the treasure hunters directly in the game? Like having some badges or something that would appear permanently on Guybrush. Or a special piratey hat! Think of the possibilities. I hope you will do something like that in future chapters. It would be a nice reward for players who go the extra mile to uncover all secrets in the game, as opposed to only playing the story puzzles.


    Definitely a cool idea -- sounds like the next iteration of what we did in Sam & Max Season Two with the DeSoto upgrades (have you checked that out?). Maybe for a future series we can combine all of this tech and these ideas for more awesomeness!

  • Nice new feature, great for adding more play time into Chapter 1 whilst also earning some goodies. :)
