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.

    Something? Better than hats?

    Oh no. NONONONONOONONONONO. No. No. No.

    There is nothing, and there will be nothing, better than hats.

    I am not interested in hats too much.Promotion ? What is better than promotion stuff that refers on another great game? Btw my main achievement in any game to have fun and PLAY for fun.

  • Finally there is media! and tycho sounds really good telltale, i'm glad you also have him use his evil eye thing.

  • Question to the telltale team regarding the lugermorph. If I already have one(which I do) and win this lugermorph, will I still get it or not?

  • @Gman5852 said: Question to the telltale team regarding the lugermorph. If I already have one(which I do) and win this lugermorph, will I still get it or not?

    Yeah, you'll get the other one as well.

    Good luck trading it for something good, however.

    you can give me and make me happy ^^.

    I get that people will find it less rare and wont trade for much, but it will still sell for at least something. Like my new Ellis Cap, some idiot will pay a crapload for it(like me but more)

    @Strongsadioware said: you can give me and make me happy ^^.

    No. why would you need it, if you are here then you should be able to get it on your own.

  • All I can say is I hope "November 2010" isn't too far away.

    @Moob22 said: 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.

    This^

    I find it funny that this happened a month or so after the "Mann-conomy" update.

    "The Great Mann-conomy crash of November 2010"

    I found it annoying
    "Give me your Lugermorph"
    "I want one"
    "Ill trade you 5 hats for it because clearly worthless hats are more then a weapon in a game about killing people with WEAPONS"
    "Please"
    "Hey you weren't playing as a scout or engineer, but I checked your backpack to see if you had a lugermorph so I could have it, wanna trade for a weapon you already have"
    The last one has actually happened. Which is sad.
