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?

  • Just finished! Stunning absoluteley stunning and realy moving.

    [SPOILER]As the credits began to roll I waited and hoped telling myself "No, please don't let them end the season this way"...and luckily you didn't.[/SPOILER]

    It ended with a bang nearly as big as the big bang ;) Telltale Team - you're genius - one of the best adventure games I've ever played. DVD ist already preordered :)

    Good job! Me too!
  • Come on, Season 3 Music CD!
    Come on, Season 3 Case File! I can take it!

    Come to think of it, what would be in the season 3 case file? Sybil's Baby's birth-certificate?
  • Loved it loved it loved it. Had to make sure my sister didn't cry during the credits. My only complaint is I didn't exactly buy the ending.

    301: Penal Zone Badge
    302: Disorient Express Ticket
    303: Tour guide of the museum
    304: Small Max doll!
    305: Max's Inuit Coming of age CD (like the "Friendly Demon Song" of #2)

    (My suggestions, don't take them as official or anything)
  • It'd be super-awesome if they went all out and made a small (like bread-box size) Devil's Toybox with smaller versions of the Toys of Power inside.

    Or maybe just the Toys of Power!

    I think we all think that!
  • A Toys of Power catelogue would be awesome enough. Especially with Mike "funny man" Stemmle writing the descriptions!
