Marty and Doc Brown arrive at Jimmy Kimmel Live

Yesterday was October 21st, 2015. Yes, the day that Marty and Doc Brown (and Jennifer) travel to, to fix Marty and Jennifer’s kids. Unfortunately, 2015 didn’t turn out like they expected. A couple of surprise guests appear, and one or two shocking revelations about 2015 leave the time travelling duo stunned…

Back To The Future – The Game!

Paul Nigh’s Time Car DeLorean from Back To The Future II

For everyone out there who has watched the Back To The Future trilogy, and always dreamed of taking their DeLorean for a spin at exactly 88 miles per hour – but never got the DeLorean: here’s your chance!!!

Telltale Games is scheduled to release episode 1 of a 5 episode game this December. The events in the game take place 6 months after the events of the third movie, when the DeLorean returns to Hill Valley – driverless! Marty has to go back in time and enlist the help of Doc Brown as a teenager, or else the space-time continuum will unravel.

The episode release schedule is monthly, so by May 2011 we should have the whole game completed. The pre-order for Episode 1 is $24.95, and includes a free copy of Puzzle Agent. Hopefully the next 4 episodes will cost less than $24.95 each – that will make the whole game cost a whopping $124.75! Other episodic games like Penny Arcade Adventures: On The Rain-slick Precipice of Darkness were retailing for $19.95 an episode, making it still close to a hundred bucks. But who wouldn’t shell out 1 Benjamin for the change to drive the DeLorean Time Machine…?

The game will be available on PC, Mac and iPad. I thought I saw a reference to a PS3 version as well, but I can’t find it anymore – maybe that got dropped.
