We've learned some new details on TellTale Game's upcoming Back to the Future video game, and it seems quite promising. First off, the great Christopher "Doc Brown" Lloyd will provide his distinct voice. Secondly: The game will star the likenesses of Marty McFly and Doc Brown, and take place in the town of Hill Valley in 1985 (at least, some of the time!). Most importantly of all, the game will feature the DeLorean we all know and love. Bob Gale, who wrote the screenplays for all the Back to the Future movies, is working with TellTale on the plot, so the story should be on-point too.
Telltale is planning five downloadable Back to the Future game episodes.
Based on these details and Telltale's impressive track record (Sam and Max), I predict good things for this game. Sure, it's not a mega, AAA title, but for something like Back to the Future, episodic and downloadable works. I can't wait. Sadly, no word on a release date as of yet.
