Is it out yet? When will it be released?

How about a "Did You Try?" list?
The forums are accumulating one in this thread. Join in with any hidden bits and alternate paths you found!

Where can I see art from the game?
The season-wide trailer and stuff is on the official site. You may also want to take a look at the Telltale blog, which includes this interview with Tomb of Sammun-Mak designer Andy Hartzell, as well as some screenshots and concept art!

What is the official marketing spiel for this game? I am dying to know!!!
"In the second episode, The Tomb of Sammun-Mak, the Freelance Police face even more bizarre and dangerous new characters (and some familiar faces). The game's designer calls this episode Sam & Max's "trippiest trip yet", as it features new psychic powers, peculiar foes, a journey on the Disorient Express and an ancient mysterious riddle from across the ages."


So you guys've been playing it, right? What do you think? Let's talk about games!

    Pretty much.

    Sorry, I don't buy it. Why would they allow their games to be listed (as publisher/developer?) on Steam, if they had no control or input over their release?

    And if it is a case of "Valve Time" jerking their customers around by delaying their releases, then TTG should be open enough to let folks know it's outside their control, and to only purchase via their site, not just leave people hanging.

    The game can't just automatically appear on Steam once Telltale gives them the code. And once the code is out of Telltale's hands, there's nothing Telltale can do -- they must wait for Valve to actually release the game to Steam.

    I think Telltale has mentioned on numerous occasions that the Steam release is usually delayed by a few hours. It would make no sense for Telltale to abandon a valuable and profitable distribution system like Steam just because of a slight delay in a game's release there.

  • Nice game so far, but a question i thought i would never have to ask with a telltale game: Where can we report bugs?

    Because:

    When asking the moleman "grandfather" during wheel 2 about "Benny's curse" the pc version gets stuck (Dialog "wheel" without anything to select).

    Nothing major, but i thought it would be best to let people know (especially because the last autosave can be up to 30 minutes back).

    Addition: Only happens if you are under his curse while asking.

  • Waiting for it to go on Steam stinks >_< lol

  • I'll look forward to playing this in 8 Days cause that's when we get it in the EU on PS3, for no reason really, it could of came out tomorrow, but I guess Sony EU wanted to be dicks.

  • :( It's STILL not out on steam yet.

  • Steam releases games as soon as they can based on when we get them a build. We had some tweaks we were working on this morning, so Steam got the builds a bit later than usual. The Steam versions are currently going through the approval process and then they should theoretically be good to go. That said, anything can happen but we will try to keep you up to date. Sorry for the delay!

  • Approval process ? They don't have to play the whole thing do they ? :o
