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.

    "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.

    I believe you I've seen it happen. I'm glad that these outlandish things will happen less often now. Honestly, I never imagined a game about shooting people could be so focused on aesthetics.

    Yes I know. Oh and I forgot

    "Hey i know you're in the heat of battle, but you know what I'm going to stand in front of you and get us both killed, losing the game for our team, just so I can ask you for the lugermorph via voicechat and show you the weapon by equiping it and showing it off, not on the enemys though, just you"
    I get offering to trade if you're waiting for a respawn, or you are an engineer on defence when you're not under attack(which happens a lot for me) but in the heat of battle, come on.

  • At least a person who's willing to trade with you is civilized :) My "conversation" with one guy was:
    He:"Big kill
    big killl
    biG killbigkill
    big killlbiG
    kill bigkill"
    or something like that :)

  • HAH, hah, ah, hh, boring, i mean the trailer.

    I'll guess at some point you'll get it for free and even then it's a questionable enjoyment. Oh well...

    Although I must admit this guy Im about to talk about probably was new but still.

    I was an engie and he was a sniper. I was guarding the base with another engie and we were preparing for a HUGE invasion(I left for a brief moment and saw 2 heavys, a medic, a spy, a pyro, and a soldier all charging at the base) and this kid sees my lugermorph, gets out his bushwaka, and says "Hey like this sword, ill give it to you for that gun of yours" I say "no get ready for the invasion" He whines the other engie comes and says "Its a bad trade, Lugermorphs are rare, we need to get ready" The kid still complains, but what is worse, I cant leave because the invasion was starting, and instead of helping, the bloody kid continues to whine. We werent able to fight the invasion because of him. Morons, its just a freakin reskin.

  • To bump this thread, Poker Night is probably coming next week.

    A tweet from the TF2 team said that in the next patch they'll be adding Poker Night items and fixing bugs.
