Back to The Future: The Game??

So, if you haven’t heard already, there is going to be a Back to the Future game that carries on with Doc and Marty from the famed trilogy.

The game takes place six months after the third Back to the Future movie, and involves Marty going on a series of adventures through different time periods to try and rescue the Doc.  There will be five episodes released each month starting in December, and can be pre-ordered here.

For those of us who may or may not be die-hard fans, a concern that may have come up is whether or not it will be voice and background accurate.  The magnificent Christopher Lloyd will still play Doc Brown. Those of us who know of Michael J Fox’s current condition know that he likely won’t be up for doing any voice acting. Below is a video to calm your nerves, as they may have found the most perfect voice-alike for Marty Mcfly ever. This guy seriously creeped me out…

Put together by Tell Tale Games, it’s looking like this is going to be a game worth putting the money into. Made by fans, for the fans. They’ve even got a guy whose job pretty much entails him to make sure everything is accurate. So for all you nitpickers out there, this may be your chance to shine and send emails.

This week is the Back to The Future 25th anniversary and a newly restored trilogy box set is currently for sale. The games are expected to be released in December for PC and Mac, with PS3 and iPad releases following shortly behind. If you pre-order the game for $24.95 on www.backtothefuturegame.com, you will receive TellTales’ game “Puzzle Agent” immediately after pre-ordering, ready to be downloaded. For each pre-order, $1.00 will be donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

If you aren’t as excited as I am for this game, then you weren’t alive in the 80’s or 90’s. :p
