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.

  • They certainly won't after Poker Night. It'll be pretty damn common compared to the other Sam and Max item skins(and even the poker cap, in time).

    Indeed! There are alot of kids who can't afford the game and will pay handsomely for it. :rolleyes:

  • Its like the crash of 1929 on TF2 forums. Lugermorphs are basically worthless now, its kinda of funny watching the mayhem. Then you find out people are saying they were scammed three days ago when they traded five hats for a Lugermorph. This is one of the more interesting things to happen to TF2 in a long time.

  • I am looking forward to having a Lugermorph again.

    The discussion in the TF2-forum is priceless though. Sorry the gun never was worth 5 hats. And some of those traders are desperately trying to keep the value up by demanding a Vintage tag or an unusual effect for the first Edition Lugermorph.

    I traded my Lugermorph for 3 hats.

    For some reason, I raged on the inside.

    I mean, jesus, it's just a weapon skin.

    You have still maxs head and big kill ?

  • @Lower111 said: You have still maxs head and big kill ?

    No.

    I wasn't really super thrilled with them. TBH, I didn't really feel anything when I traded them, since I'm not a massive fan of Sam and Max, even though I do like the games.

    But I'm pretty angry that the whole set is now worth one unusual, or was.

  • @Strongsadioware said: No.

    I traded my TF2-items away for something far better than hats. I made another player happy.
