Countdown to episode 2

posted by aHartzell Telltale Alumni on - last edited - Viewed by 10.2K users
Hi, all. This is Andy Hartzell, writer and lead designer for episode two of "The Devil's Playhouse." As you can see from my pitiful post history, I haven't properly acquired the forum habit yet. But I promise to visit regularly for at least the next month or two.

So let's see...what can I tell you about the upcoming installment? You know it's called "The Tomb of Sammun-Mak", and you've guessed that it involves the mysterious objects that were revealed in the final moments of "The Penal Zone". I can tell you that it's going to be a big episode and a twisty one, a tale that ranges widely in time and space. Like episode 1, this one throws a few new ingredients into the Telltale stew, but the flavor of this one is a bit different. Less oregano, more...cumin. And clove.

There, is that enigmatic enough? Please feel free to post any questions or speculations you may have, and I promise to respond promptly with cryptic non-answers.

    Anyone have any idea what time it'll be up on the TTG download page in GMT time? I have an economics mock exam at 10am so I'd like to have it installed by then if possible.
    Not a hope. It won't be made available until all Telltale staff are in the office. That translates to anywhere between 4pm and midnight for us. Btw we're on BST now. ;)

  • Well, looks like it's going to be somewhere near midnight for me as well..

    Thank goodness I have a day-off from school tomorrow, staying up and waiting shouldn't be a problem :D (and what's more rewarding than new S&M, after half-sleeping through two 90-minute math lessons in a row tonight? I'm willing to wait!)

    That doesn't sound right. Isn't Finland GMT+1 like us Dutchies?
  • No, it's in the next timezone over.
  • Still, GMT+2 would be 10PM then.

    I don't see how that's "near midnight", but maybe Trica thinks 2 hours is 'near'.
    (All still assuming it releases the same time as 301)
