Play Poker, Win TF2 Stuff in Poker Night at the Inventory

image

Telltale Games has unveiled Poker Night at the Inventory, a friendly game of cards with Max, Strong Bad, Tycho Brahe and the Heavy that will also unlock unique items for use in Team Fortress 2.

Did I say "friendly?" Actually, Telltale says it'll be more of a "raucous, smack-talking" affair featuring Penny Arcade's Tycho, Strong Bad of Homestar Runner fame, the hyperkinect rabbity half of Sam & Max and the iconic Team Fortress 2 goon Heavy Weapons Guy. Making things even more interesting, the game will also give players the chance to win special unlockable items that can be used in TF2, including:

  • The Enthusiast's Timepiece - Tycho's favorite wristwatch (equippable by the Spy)
  • License to Maim - Max's Freelance Police badge (equippable by all classes)
  • The Lugermorph - Max's personal sidearm (equippable by the Scout and Engineer)
  • The Iron Curtain - Before Sascha, the Heavy had another love (equippable by the Heavy)
  • Dangeresque, Too? - Strong Bad's Stylin' Eye Wear (equippable by the Demoman)

As an added bonus, preordering Poker Night at the Inventory will bring with it the Heavy's very own poker visor. None of this stuff actually does anything, but it sure does look sharp. Which for me, at least, makes it a tough call: I don't like poker but I do like to look my best while I'm popping craniums from the far side of the map.

Poker Night at the Inventory comes out later this month and can be preordered now on Steam.

4 Items? I feel like there should be more. I want the Enthusiast's Timepiece! I love me some Penny Arcade!

You have already won the thread, good sir.
Let's see, $4.50 (pre-order) for a bizarre crossover card game, likely infused with great humor given the participants, and you can get up to five TF2 items? Sounds like a deal to me.
Wonder who's going to voice Tycho? Will Jerry Holkins actually lend his voice to his creation, did TellTale get somebody else to fill the roll, or will he be mute with word balloons like in the Penny Arcade Adventures?

Wait so this is the game they're coming out with featuring these characters? So LAME!

Yeah, they must have missed it out.

Do you get the Poker Visor right now or when it's released?

As therandombear stated they're making Max's gun the Lugermorph(formerly a Sam and Max Season 3 preorder exclusive) an unlock with Poker Night. It's a nice little alternative to the scout or engie's pistol.

You get the visor now

I've heard it said that this game is slated to have more dialogue than a typical episode of Sam and Max. I don't even know how to play poker but 5 bucks is an acceptable sum to listen to that much hilarity AND get sweet items in TF2.

Sold.

Wonder what kind of "stats" the new minigun and spy watch got...if they have any stats at all, maybe just reskin of normal stock weps.

Yeah! Thats why I must have it!

I believe they are just re-skins...which is somewhat disappointing, but I can't really blame them for making it that way.

I think they're just re-skins

Indeed you can, and thanks for pointing that out. Not sure how I overlooked it, but it's been added to the list.

Di-tto

I just might get this game. The Iron Curtain looks extremely awesome!

Trailer:

Based on that alone, I'm damn tempted.

Gentlemen? Read them and weep.
