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?

  • I hope he's just getting our hopes up.
    (Wait, is that a paradox?)

    I don't think so. Maybe "I hope he hopes to put our hopes up" would be, I don't know.

    Anyway, what sort of crazy person are you? That's nothing to hope for!
  • It's not contradictory, so it's not a paradox. It's just repeating the same word in a sentence.

    Ah, yes, that makes sense.
  • How much hope would Jack's hope up, if our hope hops up by spotting a part o' plot?

    My hope is already up, even if our hope hops even further up by spotting part o' plot.
  • I just want a trailer that parodies Cloverfeild or Godzilla...

    I hope my hopes hop with the plot like any hopes should hop, provided there's a plot to hop my hopes.

    I hop along with the hop of the hope of hoping my hopes are raised in time to the plot of the fact that a plot is yet to be announced to hop my hopes in time to.

    My hopes hop higher as the hope of a plot hops with my hopes as they hop to the top of the hope that the hop will bring a plot for my hopes to hop for, and if not my hopes are squashed.

    Yeah, this means war.
