Trivia

  • The alien movie in the Invasion Update video is based on a cheesy 1950s film.
  • The update was teased months before hand by the Team Fortress 2 Podcast KritzKast.
    • On the KritzKast Meet Your Makers page, there is a blurry image of a Saucer.
    • The page contains an X Ray image of the Pyro with a Triboniophorus Tyrannus or possibly a Sucker Slug on his head.
    • Clicking the binary monitor on the main page leads to a secret page with a lone monitor that says "They're watching..." This message is a reference to The X-Files series.
  • On Sep 13th, the update was teased on Brett Kennedy's channel in a video titled midnight showing.
    • During the video, a message in Morse code is played. The message translated reads: "Poopy Joe was an inside job."
    • A radio is playing in the background of the video. The static broadcast it is playing is the news intro from the KritzKast radio skit KKBC: No one would have believed.
    • There is a split second frame of an alien glyph. The glyph forms a crop circle pattern seen in the release trailer, only with the Team Fortress 2 logo in it.

KritzKast Skits

To promote the update, the Team Fortress 2 Podcast KritzKast created a series of humorous radio skits portraying a radio news station broadcasting the events of the alien invasion.
