Poker Night confirmed as Pilot Program title

In a short interview with Telltale's Dan Connors, he reveals to Wired that Poker Night is part of Telltale's Pilot Program.

The $5 game comes to Steam this fall for the PC and Mac and is being released as part of Telltale Games’ Pilot Program — an effort to give new, risky game concepts a chance to shine. According to Connors, the game will have to sell between 100,000 to 200,000 units to be worth reviving as a franchise.

“If this version with these game characters work, we will likely follow it up with new game characters or maybe other celebrities, rock stars and the like.”

100,000 - 200,000 sounds like a lot of sales. I wonder if Puzzle Agent needs to sell similarly to be considered a success (though it is on more platforms than Poker Night)?

    I scratch my head in confusion. How many poker games can you buy, really? I'm happy Telltale are trying new things, but I'm kinda wishing they would focus on something a little different. (Deathspank-ish, lighthearted RPG/adventures would be my heart's desire.) Though, I've been wrong in the past, so this could be good for them. Dunno how I feel about this.

    Also, it might be good (if expensive/risky) to try and implement multiplayer on Poker Night. I've seen people ignore it because it's single-player only.

    We'll see how this goes. I'm still hoping for a TF2 adventure game, heh.



    The series is called "At The Inventory", so I'm guessing it won't be limited to poker.
