Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

It's Poker Night at the Inventory!

Kotaku seems to think it's Sam & Max, Team Fortress 2, Penny Arcade, and Strong Bad

Here's the teaser itself.

http://www.gametrailers.com/player/703720.html

It's obviously linked to PAX, given the posted reveal date and the fact that it's TellTale.

Bigger question is: Will whatever it is be at PAX?

Also, what the fuck?

I am confused by any possible interaction the four apparent franchises could have with each other. They just don't... go.

If it's just a box set or something people could get hurt.

    I'm expecting something like that poker game that Telltale did a while back, but all licensed-up. Hopefully they have something else up their sleeve.

    If they provide a teaser like this and all that comes of it is Strong Bad and Tycho playing Cribbage... well... that'd be kind of awesome, now that I think about it.

    I would posit something entirely different.

    TellTale Hearts!

    See... it's a Kingdom Hearts joke and an Edgar Allen Poe reference. So it would work on multiple levels.

    The silhouettes are all holding cards, so it's going to be a CCG.

    People are saying it will be a variation of Tell Tale's Poker game.

    I only see Tycho and Heavy with them, so I was thinking that it might be tickets for being in Telltale's game.

    I wonder if Tycho will be writing for the game.

    Doubtful. From what I heard, Episode 2 sold about 30% of Episode 1. They were simply deemed unprofitable. ...I think.

    But let's be clear: of all the possibilities listed here, that one would be the awesomest.

    I'm secretly hoping this is going to be an adventure game. It's highly unlikely, but if it'd be an adventure game the characters would have much more dialogue and they would actually interact with eachother. That and I want to play as detective heavy solving criminal cases.

    The Homestar Runner guys are doing very well, and are far from washed-up. They stopped updating the site just a few months ago, but I think it's because children have been introduced into their lives.

    This is the kind of stuff that usually only happens in my dreams. I'm hoping for either a brawler (JESUS CHRIST THAT WOULD BE AMAZING) or an adventure game (JESUS CHRIST THAT WOULD STILL BE PRETTY AMAZING).

    And I only see cards in Tycho's hand and possibly the Heavy's (although that could just be a half-eaten sandvich), so I doubt "Telltale Poker Remix" is a thing that will happen.

    Internet fad?

    Homestar Runner has been around for over 10 years. Do you consider Penny-Arcade a fad too?

    I did not mean it to be insulting, I just didn't have a better word for it. I saw the site was unchanged for a couple of months, and even though I am sure it has its own community and fanbase, it hasn't, as far as I know , been as "hot" as it used to be (judging from alexa and the fact that few people seem to be talking about it anymore)

    No intent to offend, guys!

    I discovered Strong Bad in college and it was widely circulated then, and while "people don't seem to be talking about it" I think that's because I'm not in college anymore. Who am I supposed to talk about it with?

    I am really disappointed that they've kind of quit working on it, though. 2 or 3 updates a year is inexcusable. I think they said they wanted to stop on the 200th email, but they kept going just a little bit longer which is weird and if they're going to stop then they need to just put together a big awesome farewell video and leave it at that.

    Hm. I think they're a little too tame and family friendly for this crew. Guybrush would probably fit in, though.

    Cards? No! Those are crumpets! Can you not see that this is a teaser for TellTale Triumphant Teatime Spectacular?

    The final boss is Heavy pouring tea for max and the cheat and not spilling a drop.

    Seriously though, I look forward to playing this ccg or playing the web ccg....CTS, what does it do? What does it mean?

    I think it's a good idea, considering Telltale Texas Hold'em is pretty fun. Also it'll be fun seeing these characters interacting with each other. 'Sides, it's only 5 bucks.

    What engine is it using? I find it interesting that each character is in his own graphical style.
