Great Scott! Back to the Future: The Game Platforms Announced

Fans of the Back to the Future Trilogy (of which I most definately am) will be pleased to hear that Telltales Games have confirmed which platforms Back To The Future: The Game will be released for.

First up, in December are the PC and Mac versions, with PlayStation3 and iPad versions following some time after.  You can actually jump over to http://www.backtothefuturegame.com and place your pre-order now for $24.95 and by doing so you also pick up a few extras.

The pre-order special includes:

  • Telltale Games critically acclaimed Puzzle Agent — $9.95 value, available for download immediately after placing order.
  • For each pre-order of the series on PC and Mac from telltalegames.com, the company will donate $1.00 to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
  • Inclusion in special pre-release insider forum at Telltale site — to chat with the team creating the game throughout the process

This game could be ‘heavy’ to quote just about any of the characters from the films and perfect for fanboys who wanted to be Marty McFly.  So you want details of what the game is about?  Keep reading.

Picking up shortly after the events of the third Back to the Future film, Marty and Doc embark on a completely new cinematic time-travel adventure. The story unfolds across five exciting episodes, with a new installment releasing each month. Telltale is creating the game in collaboration with Universal Partnerships & Licensing and film series’ co-creator/co-writer Bob Gale. The games will release soon after the Blu-ray debut and DVD release of the Back to the Future 25th Anniversary Trilogy on October 26, featuring all-new restorations of the classic films.

We’re also bring you the special “making of” video features, with Bob Gale and the game team sharing an inside-look at the production. The video also shows first footage of Christopher Lloyd returning to the role of Doc Brown in the recording studio and talking about his experiences making the game.
