Marty McFly's epic time-travelling adventure continues this Wednesday when Telltale Games releases the first episode of Back to the Future: The Game for the PC and Mac, picking up six months after the end of the original trilogy.
It's been six months since Back to the Future III, and Doc Brown's lab is on the verge of being sold off in his absence. Lamenting the absence of his friend and mentor, Marty McFly is surprised by the sudden reappearance of the time-travelling DeLorean. The machine brings him into the past, where he must enlist the aid of a teenage Emmett Brown to keep all of space and time from unravelling.
It sounds just like something we might have seen on the big screen had the '80s movie trilogy continued. Just ask Bob Gale, co-creator and co-writer of the films.
"Telltale's Back to the Future game is the first videogame in the space-time continuum to be truly worthy of being called ‘Back to the Future.' This new adventure of ‘Marty McFly' and ‘Doc Brown' is true to the spirit of the movies and I couldn't be happier about the great working relationship I've developed with the team at Telltale. Via the game, the player gets to explore and experience more about the history of our characters and Hill Valley... along with some very interesting alternate time lines. It's a game for people who loved the movies, made by people who loved the movies."
Fans can still preorder the game through Telltale to score a free copy of Puzzle Agents. Back to the Future: The Game will launch on the iPad and PlayStation Network early next year.
