Poker Night at The Inventory

Available Nov 22nd!

We're finally talking about the game! Let's hang out and discuss things. Learn about the Pre-Order bonus and other TF2 unlocks over at IGN PC's Poker Night preview, with a ton of other info at the Poker Night website.

Official Poker Night website
Images, trailers, FAQs, etc! Also Valve has posted an update to the Team Fortress site about it, too.

Trailer!
Check out the trailer at the official Poker Night website, or Telltale's YouTube channel.


Your forum questions answered:

Does everyone get the unlocks, no matter where they bought it?
Update: This has changed a bit! Yes, everyone gets the updates! No matter whether you buy the game from Steam, or from Telltale directly, you will be given a code to download a Steam copy. The Steam release is the only version which can talk to Team Fortress 2, so if you'd like to get your hats, be sure to play with that version. Telltale customers who have purchased Poker Night can get their Steam code here.

I pre-ordered before you announced the unlocks! (and/or at PAX in person!) Am I still eligible for the poker visor pre-order bonus?
Of course! Like your grandpa always said, a pre-order is a pre-order is a pre-order. Any orders placed, ever, in all time, right up until the game is released, will count.

Tycho talks?!
He does! He's voiced by Kid Beyond, who Telltale fans may recognize as Bugeye in Tales of Monkey Island, and the Narrartor in Sam & Max The Devil's Playhouse. Fans of geek music may recognize him from his appearances at those sorts of events, too (eg: beatboxing vs drum machine faceoff at this Jonathan Coulton concert). We felt from his experience in those roles that he could capture the snarkiness, the gravitas, and the weird cultural crate digging any respectable Tycho needs to get through the day.


Official Mini-FAQ!
(Read the full FAQ here)

Is this a real thing?
You bet your britches. Poker Night at the Inventory is a full-on no-limit Texas hold'em game developed by Telltale in collaboration with Homestar Runner, Penny Arcade and Valve.

Ok, this game has Max, The Heavy, Strong Bad and Tycho in it? It's gotta be pricier than the platinum dipped power glove I just bought on eBay, right?
Nope, $4.95. Four dollars, ninety-five cents. Why? Because we love you and want you to play it, that's why.

What's this all about, anyway?
Poker Night at the Inventory is about getting characters we know and love into an environment where they can drop their guards and be themselves. You play cards and characters have the sorts of conversations you always imagined they had but have never heard. We set out to make a game that was big on character interaction because we thought it'd be cool to hang out and play cards with guys like Tycho, Max, Strong Bad and The Heavy.

  • Is anyone else getting an error when trying to open the game with the TTG version?

    Yes. Is your error the "MSVCP100.dll" error? Does anyone know how to fix it??
  • Yeah, there's a fix already in the support forum.
  • I've installed it, but it won't start up... What's going on here? :confused:

    So I was about to win the Iron Curtain, Heavy was all in, Strongbad was folding and I had a flush, suddenly the game freezes and crashes moments later!
  • Ugh, my laptop is having some trouble with this at the lowest settings, and it could run TDP pretty decently ;___;


    Btw, at the lowest of settings Tycho's model looks HORRIBLE, but still, it's also so horrible that it's hilarious I must admit XD
  • Yeah its laggy for me too.
    Also max has twice now done an all in bet, yet neither has he bet his stuff.
  • My game keeps becoming non responsive after the TTG logo shows up. This sucks... and it happens with the Steam version and the one from Telltale.
  • Just had a shot of it (playing more tonight) and thought it was absolutly funny! Just a slight slowdown with shadows, but that's it. Also, can anyone get it higher than level 6? I am a bit curious. Anyway, I'm loving it (especially Tycho. Man he is funny) and this will hopefully keep me entertained for a while. :D

    Last thing - is there a lot of dialouge, like, not quickly repeated? I heard some things about that, and I know to expect that from a $5 game. Oh well if that is true, at least it is entertaining!

    There's plenty of lines, but it seems that the repeats kick in really early on. I know I haven't even come close to hearing everything yet, but I've heard a couple of conversations three or four times already.
