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?

    Digging around on the server I found this old thing, too.

    When cutting together a very early version of the Devil's Playhouse trailer, Shauntron (our video guy!) forgot that he had Pandora running in the background. The result is some accidental brilliant timing between unintended music and a very early form of the game. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PG4HIORypcI
    Haha! That works really well! Especially when Bob says 'and you'll reveal a new location on your map'!

    You really know how to fill the last minutes.

    We only hope these are the last minutes.
  • Ooh, .mp3 please? :D

    And dang, I sure hope that picture was a glimpse of the DVD cover! Looks truly awesome :) (and maybe a poster too! WANT.)

    Well, my clock is Valve past nine. I got used to delays...

    Please tell me you are going to release a print of that!
    What she said.
  • I don't quitet get the soundbit, don't think it's synching in the slightest.

    Might just be me though.
    Also, darn it for Pandora not to be listenable for non-US folks.
  • Is there a problem with the episode, Jake? We've all been waiting ages...

    Hear, hear! We Europeans might have somewhere to be first thing tomorrow morning.
  • Yeah Jake! I hate to sound horribly impatient, but my breakfast is about to arrange an escape out of gastric prison and I'd like to at least know 305 is out before the plan is set into action.
