Countdown to episode 2

posted by aHartzell on - last edited - Viewed by 3.3K users

Hi, all. This is Andy Hartzell, writer and lead designer for episode two of "The Devil's Playhouse." As you can see from my pitiful post history, I haven't properly acquired the forum habit yet. But I promise to visit regularly for at least the next month or two.

So let's see...what can I tell you about the upcoming installment? You know it's called "The Tomb of Sammun-Mak", and you've guessed that it involves the mysterious objects that were revealed in the final moments of "The Penal Zone". I can tell you that it's going to be a big episode and a twisty one, a tale that ranges widely in time and space. Like episode 1, this one throws a few new ingredients into the Telltale stew, but the flavor of this one is a bit different. Less oregano, more...cumin. And clove.

There, is that enigmatic enough? Please feel free to post any questions or speculations you may have, and I promise to respond promptly with cryptic non-answers.

  • Hello Andy, nice to meecha:

    1. Will any of the characters that have left (Bosco, Bluster, Syble, Abe, Two-teeth, Anyone in hell) come back for this episode?

    2. I miss the office.

    3. Did lousy old corperate ever make you cut out something you wrote or put something you didn't like in?

    So... he was modelled on you then, Joel? ;)

  • One thing I've been wondering is what Mr. Funny Looking Bloke's voice is going to sound like. In my mind I keep imagining an odd mix between the voices of Satan and Harry Moleman. Am I anywhere close in this guess?

    I think his name is Papier Waite. Look at the filename.

    I'm imagining a more Noel Coward feel to the guy.

  • I don't wanna know anything. I don't why I'm reading this...

    WHATHEVER!

    In fact, I was shifting my attention to Scoggins' Mystery by now...

    Uhhh... I HAVE to see that... 5 weeks? WHY!

    No, you won't be using Future Vision in episode 2. It may return to your arsenal in subsequent episodes, but I think it's safe to reveal that it won't be featured as prominently as it was in episode 1, as new Toys of Power come into play.

    Ah.... I was really waiting to see how you guys would manage all the toys in play at once, would have made some wicked puzzles possible. Maybe in the later episodes...

    Questions:

    1-Will we get to know how the future vision ended up on S&M street and started the whole story?

    2-When can we expect a toy of power that gives Max the ability to blow people minds with greatness?

  • spoiler tags, please. although most of us already know this, some people haven't played season 2, so they don't know about stinky yet.
