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.

    @Dorino said: Including the pre-order hat?

    Yes. I just cant confirm when that email allowing you access to the visor will reach you. I'm being told as early as tomorrow.

  • @Jake said: November! Day TBD.

    But not this week or the next right?

    I really want to use the pre-order discount of Poker Night, but I have no idea when I'll be able to so I just hope the release date is in the second half of the month at least .___.

    @Gman5852 said: K next question. We dont get a steam version then? It would be like Nick said and we get the items as long as steam is running?

    I guess Jake has to confirm everything I say here ;). You don't get an "official" steam version. That said, you can just add your Telltale copy to your "Steam Library" and run it like you would any other steam game, and there is virtually no difference.

    True but without steam i can play offline so ill be fine.

    So here are the facts on tf2 items(the only confusing part)

    1.Preorder item will be heavy only, and will be sent via email, which can be used immediatly in TF2?
    2.I just need steam running while playing a game to get the items
    3.We have a special mode in the game that appears where a character bets a tf2 weapon which will unlock.
    Anyone can confirm this, not just Jake;)

    Sweet, and the email you said is tomarrow.
    Sounds good, all thats left is the official release date, besides
    November. Which probably wont happen today.
    EDIT:Oh and will the new minigun and spy watch have any bonuses in tf2, or are they just for show like the S&M items.

  • Anyone else notice Flint Paper and Bluster Blaster in the background at some points in the trailer?

    Hey the inventory was a club if you remember.
    Hey i wonder if that watch is a new dead ringer, after all it is transferable by death

  • Here's a question: If I bought the game on steam, before seeing I would get the items for pre-ordering here, which I've already done, will I be eligible to obtain the items twice?

  • 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?
