TSL Episode 3: My Only Love Sprung From My Only Hate is available now! Plus, more contests!

by on Feb.17, 2011, under contest, news, tsl

The day and time have finally arrived: Episode 3 is available NOW in the Fan Club!

For Episode 3, you’ll find two download options are available.

* If you had previously installed the full Episodes 1 and 2 file, then all you need is the Episode 3 Patch file.

* If you do not have the Episodes 1 and 2 game downloaded and installed, then you’ll want to download the Full Build which contains all three episodes in one.

It wouldn’t be a release without a few new contests, and sure enough, we have two for you!

The Many Deaths of King Graham!

We all know every adventure game involves some trial and error and finding some pitfalls and, of course, some deaths–and Episode 3 has plenty of those! So we’d like to reward you for failing with The Many Deaths of King Graham!

For this contest, we want you to submit a list of all the unique deaths you can find in Episode 3! What does that mean? It means if it’s a way you could die in a previous episode–like drowning, or being bitten by the Black Widow–then it doesn’t count. But if it’s brand new, put down the screen where it happened, how it happened, and copy down the death message it gave you! Submit your list of deaths to–the 3 fans who’ve submitted the most deaths by March 3rd will be the winners! You can submit more than once to make your list longer and increase your chances of winning at any time.

The prize? Each winner will get a professionally printed copy of the TSL 2011 Calendar!

Everyone Needs a Little Suffering

You may have found the Suffer, but his friends and family are still loose in the Green Isles! In Episode 3, Baby Suffer (aka “Little Suffering”) is hiding somewhere in the game, and he’s even sneakier than his big brother. See if you can find the clues and find the Suffer!

If you do, take a screenshot of your inventory with the Baby Suffer in it, and send it to us along with your save file at The first 5 people to correctly find and prove that they found Baby Suffer will win “The Suffer Lining” mousepads!

    Remember the Sierra golden days with this Infamous Adventures contest!

    by on Dec.27, 2010, under contest, news, tsl

    The folks over at Infamous Adventures are having the heck of a contest! Relive the magic of Sierra in this amazing contest! From IA:

    Help us determine what is, once and for all, the single greatest Sierra adventure game! Infamous Adventures has announced “The Greatest Quest Ever Told!” a contest to determine what is the number one Sierra adventure game and it looks like a heap of fun!

    It’s now time to determine what is the BEST, what is the WORST and what is just floating along in the middle.

    It’s simple and should be fun! Every two days (sometimes longer, especially near the end when we’re up to the newer and longer games) we’ll play through and rank each Sierra adventure game, in the order of release. The goal here is to play, or replay, each game. Try and re-experience the pleasure!

    Then log onto the forums and answer the poll question “Rate The Game”. This is the question we’re going to use to create the final results, the best, the worst and the ones in the middle. Each game will have a standard couple of questions, but feel free to start your own threads. Make comments, argue, prove your point!

    And that’s it! Simple!

    Join up and be involved! It’s going to be great and we’re going to answer that question that every adventure game fan has. What is really the greatest Sierra adventure game?

    For more information and to join the quest, log onto to theInfamous Adventure forums!

    In-suffer-able Companions Winners!

    by on Dec.02, 2010, under contest, tsl

    We had three really fun entries from our contestants for this one, and thank you everyone for participating! Honestly, we laughed at all three and thought they were very creative.

    So much so, in fact, that it occurred to us–three new Suffers…three remaining episodes…why choose when we could use all three?

    So that’s what we’re doing!

    Congratulations to Kimmie, tessspoon, and jeymian! All three of you are winners! Your different Suffer Companions–Baby Suffer, Voodoo Suffer, and Cedric Suffer–will appear in the three remaining episodes of The Silver Lining! As for which show up where, well, everyone will just have to play and hunt down the Suffers to find out!

    Great job all of you, again, and enjoy your Santa Suffer prizes Let’s hear it for our winners!

    Santa Suffer!

    In-Suffer-able Companions Contest!

    by on Nov.11, 2010, under contest, tsl

    Even Suffer, smug as he is, needs friends and family. We want you to introduce us to some of them!

    Design an image of a friend or family member for Suffer: a sister, a brother, an Evil Twin (or maybe a Good Twin?), a buddy, a sidekick, whatever Suffer inspires you to create as one of his In-Suffer-able Companions. The winning design will not only receive a Suffer Lining mousepad (with a choice between our original design and the new holiday design!), but his or her design will also appear in Episode 3!

    Submit your designs to by Friday, November 26th, midnight EST. We’ll announce the winner by Sunday, November 28th and get the In-suffer-able Companion modeled and hidden away somewhere in Episode 3!

    Contestants are also welcome to share their designs with fellow fans in this thread in our forums.

    Happy Holidays from Santa Suffer and his Sufferdeer!
