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?

    The Daily Shriek? What happened to Bad and Worse News?
    I'd Shriek if a giant demon rabbit smashed into my bathroom while I was bathing. Bad News and Worse News is just a laugh compared to what is happening for a possible 4 week rampage.

    "The Daily Shriek" is a tabloid from the comics, and I thought it would be fun to bring it into the game. 301's newspaper was "It's Just Like News." There are a few more tabloids floating around in the opening credits.

    I knew I was going to have to go through that opening frame-by-frame eventually...

    Is the Daily Shriek by any chance from The Beast from the Cereal Isle?
  • Still no date? Come on guys - it's been over a month now and I'm getting crazy here....i mean crazier ;)
  • I bet they'll spring it on us unexpectedly on the 31st.
  • Man I'm running out of things to do. No games to play (here in my student box with my crappy lappy anyway), no interesting sports to watch, I've read all the news, no projects that need finishing touches... Telltale, please, don't let me get any closer to what I fear the most: READING A FICTIONAL BOOK TO PASS TIME!! Even the thought of it scares the crap outta me...

    You might want to try reading actual existing books then. Seeing how apparently your fictional books are boring as hell...
