First Screens Of Back To The Future: The Game Are Just What The Doc Ordered

Telltale Games' episodic take on time-traveling adventure Back To The Future is coming to the PC and Mac later this year... and this is what it looks like, a charmingly cartoonish, stylized spin on Marty McFly and Doc Brown.

Telltale has released a quick three-screen preview of Back to the Future: The Game showing off its key players, Doc, Marty and the DeLorean, all of which look splendid. Set after the events of Back to the Future III, the next potentially great Back to the Future adventure features the involvement of movie producer Bob Gale and the vocal talents of Christopher Lloyd.

Versions of the five-episode long game for the PlayStation 3 and iPad are also in the works.


    Marty is looking very McFly and Doc is surely Brown nosing for a chance to appear in the next ______ at the Inventory game.

    No release date yet, I take it?

      The future release date is whatever they make it, so lets hope they make a good one!

        oh...I see what you did there....

    I'm not usually a big fan of Telltale's games, but I really like the look of the characters and the scenery on this one. It looks like there is quite a bit of facial animation going on there.

      I was sort-of put of by the backwards approach of the of Tales Monkey Island demo; Hopefully they'll improve it for consoles and introduce things like panning and controllable cameras.

    Style is splendid! I hope the gameplay is good, but i doubt it will be.

    I'm so pumped for this.

    I've been a fan of BTTF since watching it when I was a kid.

    I hated the end of BTTF Part III in a way.
    I didn't want the adventure to end.
    Seeing doc fly off to an unknown destination.
    After severing ties with his friend.
    I found it kind of sad in a way.

    But now we are going to continue the story of Back to the Future!

    Not only that, but its a legit continuation too, with the makers of the movie pouring their heart and soul into it!

      May I be among the first to say 'Great Scott'?

      Also, if you guys feel like copying and pasting entire sections of the Back to the Future script like last time, I'm totally cool with that! :)

        Ah, Jesus Christ! Jesus Christ, Doc, you disintegrated Einstein!

        We'd have to be careful doing that Mark...

        We don't want to run into our future selves... it might create a paradox that destroy the entire universe, of course we may be lucky and the destruction may be contained to just our own galaxy.
        Also, we don't want to get struck by lightning!

          That'd be heavy.

            Weight has nothing to do with it.

    Why don't you make like a tree, and get out of here?

    Marty: "Great SCOTT!"
    Doc: "I know, this is HEAVY!"


    "Take a look at them mocansins, what kind of skins are them?"
    "Whats that writing mean, 'Nike', what is that some sort of indian talk or something?"

    Who are you calling butt head, butt head!
