Countdown to Ep 5: "The City That Dares Not Sleep"

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?

    But isn't the "seibert" button basicly "Caps Lock" and "No Punctuation" with hints of "Poor Grammer" put into one button?
    no, the "siebert" button is "poor grammar", "obliviousness", "misunderstanding" and "poor spelling" all put into one. i have since ripped it off of my computer. damn vista, always giving me stuff i dont need!

    that happened in the ps3 version of episode 1 ONLY. remember nutrispecs.

    Also will there be any more tf2 references.
    There's extra content on the ps3 version? :(
    Do all the episodes have extra stuff I'm missing out on, or just the first?
  • Only 301, it isn't the great, and it's supposed to come to PC sometime in the future.

    Uses future vision goggles on page. 'Wow, it's 2012 and the nutri-specs still haven't been released!'
  • Hey there, Jake Leg! I don't have much to say right now, so I'll skip the familiarities (which I shouldn't have, since I don't come to this forum or the Telltale studios often) and throw out my own generic list of questions.

    Are there still any new characters in your reserves that will make an appearance this episode?

    Is there going to be a cliffhanger at the end?

    Will we hear an interesting variety of Lovecraft references throughout our play?

    When should we expect a trailer?

    How should we cope with the wait?
  • Please bring the Soda Poppers back, they're the most awesome characters EVER CREATED!!

    Do we finally catch up with Max's future vision of Pudding Lincoln from 301?
    Specifically, does Sam put his hand inside the pudding head; put his hand inside the pudding head?
    [BOSCO VOICE] AAAAARGH
    (and yes, I am going to do that EVERY SINGLE TIME this is brought up again... again... again... again... again... AGAIN... again... AGAIN... again...

    Questions;
    Will Max go totally commando? :p

    So the nutrispecs made that vision make sense?
