Back in June, Telltale Games announced development of a game based on the classic ’80s comedy, Back to the Future. They’ve now announced that game will be available for the Mac and PC in December, followed shortly by PlayStation 3 and iPad versions. The PC and Mac versions of Back to the Future: The Game are now available to pre-order for $24.95, and include a pre-order special:
- Telltale Games critically acclaimed Puzzle Agent. A $9.95 value, the game is 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. Chat with the team creating the game throughout the process.
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.
For more information, including a special “making of” video featuring Bob Gale and the game team sharing an inside-look at the production (the video also shows the first footage of Christopher Lloyd returning to the role of Doc Brown in the recording studio and talking about his experiences making the game), visit the Telltale Games website.
