All right all Start Guessing.

Here is a handy dandy World Clock DooHicky so you don't have to think of all that time zone stuff while making your guess.

Please Post all Guess's in Pacific time zone: UTC/GMT -8 hours.
Reason being is that is were Telltale is at.

My Guess.

My way of thinking is that Telltale wants to get the game to our British Pirates today as promised (Sorry Aussies).

So taking into account for British Summer Time.
(British Summer Time is a strange time warping effect that happens over England. I have looked into it and have come to the conclusion it has something to do with something called a Tardis and a person known as The Doctor. I tried to look into it more but I keep getting this thing saying Tourchwood Classified. There is another theory of what British Summer Time is link to follow.)

I am thinking from 13:00 Standard Time would be about the latest they will release it being that for the British gamers it would be 9 at night and still respectably the 7th.

Now that was thinking the latest they would come out with it today.

The earliest would be 6 AM Standard Time. But it would be more realisitc if it was 9 AM Standard Time. Both of these times work out great for Europe and not just England with their "The Doctor" Summer time thing.

So split the difference and Boom!

My Guess is 7:30 AM Standard Time.

  • there's only 15 mins left to release it before it's July 8 in NZ.
  • the strong bad and sam and max games always popped up around 12:00 noon here, which is about 9:00AM in SF

    So my guess is 9:15AM

    They don't count! (sorry)

    Serves them right for living in the future and never once giving me the Winning Lotto Numbers.
  • The suspense is killing me! I just woke up early this morning, and still no monkey island!
  • I'd say 5pm GMT in UK as thats when Sam & Max always use to appear.
  • I'd say 10 mins after I go to bed :( Never should have bothered waiting to download it as soon as it gets released.
  • Hmmm I want to play tales of Monkey Island!!! it's 13:00 hear in Scotland so... 5am UTC, that right?

    I would have thought the sensible thing to do would be to release it at 00:01 UTC today so that everywhere in the world will get a chance to download on the actual release date.

    Feel sorry for NZ and Oz and probs Japan too if there's been folk up all day waitin to download this.

    That makes no sense (maybe its just the way you worded it) How can "Standard Time" be GMT-8 hours?

    Standard Time IS UTC/GMT

    If you're talking about Pacific Time, then that would be GMT/UTC-7 hours, or BST (British Summer Time)-8 Hours

    So, your guess should be in Pacific Time, if that's the timezone telltale are in. But its 7 hours behind stadard time, not 8.

    My guess is 10am Pacific/5pm Standard/6pm BST

    :)
  • Is it already available to the download?

    Cause I've preoredered but I can't download it now. :/

    No, UTC is BST-1hr, or GMT. So 1pm in Scotland = 12pm UTC

    But why would telltale work on UTC if they're based on the West Coast of the US? Its currently 5:15am over there, so you were right about the time, just not the zone :)
