Whoa is it time for one of these already? Probably not, but here it is anyway.

So yeah, July's pretty close to done so it's time for the Final Count..down... thread. Hm. I didn't expect to go there at all. My apologies.

I'm Jake, and as many of you guys know from elsewhere on the forums, I wear quite a few hats around the TTG offices. The last few months, I have been fortunate enough to wear the hat of "director" for the final chapter of The Devil's Playhouse, "The City That Dares Not Sleep.".

I'll be hanging around this thread for between now and release, answering questions and dropping amazingly obscure, indecipherable, impenetrable, mind-rending hints about the final episode. Which you guys will surely figure out within like ten minutes, causing me to freak out thinking I've unwittingly spoiled the season finale for you. Fortunately, you'll then inevitably second guess yourselves and get it all horribly wrong a few days after that.

The episode was written and designed by Chuck Jordan (writer/designer/director of The Penal Zone, and lord overseer of the whole season), who is enjoying his new exotic life outside the office (which means he's probably at home on his couch playing Limbo on XBLA), but hopefully he can be coaxed into stopping by as well to help field things, too.

So yeah, the questions, the speculating: Fire away!

Uhhh, uhhh, bullet points.... Stemmle had all those cool bullet points. Dammit. Bullets.

I am less prepared than Mike "Master of the Countdown Thread" Stemmle, if you didn't notice. My bullet points, however, far outclass those of any prior thread. Feast:
  • It's the last episode of the season.
  • It features some very nice decorative clocks and lamps which I think you'll enjoy.

What more do you need to know?

    That box of stuff in the cavern from 304 originally included a line about Stinky's "rubber cake costume," heavily implying that Sal and Stinky had been involved in some serious Scooby-Doo shenanigans with Grandpa Stinky, but the line was cut after we realized that it would be Really Useful to have a rubber cake costume for the "Grandpa's Birthday" puzzle.

    You mean you couldn't put a pick-up line after the cake "flag" was triggered where Sam would say something like "Nah, that rubber cake costume doesn't look like the cake Grandpa Stinky likes. There's not enough blood on it."

  • Wow. Your games just keep getting better. I'm thinking "how will you top this?", but I thought so after TMI too, and you nailed it.
  • Does this mean that Telltale Texas Hold'em 2 will be better than 305...?
