We’ve cooked up a survey in connection with our Back to the Future project. We’d love it if you could take a few minutes to answer our questions.
You can find the survey here. Your time with this survey is greatly appreciated – and will help the team in learning what would be of greatest interest to you (no promises though, and please don’t take any questions here as commitments on what we may or may not do! ;) )
This survey should take 10 to 15 minutes to complete Only one response per person please. Thanks from all of us at Telltale.
Um. Where were the questions? Was I too old to answer them? (Or too young?)

Wow this survey took a looong time, but it's very detailed which gives me hope that you really are listening to what people are going to answer in the survey :)
Two of the plotline examples didn't fit with Back to the Future at all (Emmet Brown giving up science? For anything???), I hope they were a kind of trick question ^^

…November 5th, 2010. Working together, Teen Marty, Doc, and Present Day Marty finally corner the man who made off with Doc’s Time Train. While they argue about what to do with the well-intentioned time-hopper, a scary black vehicle appears out of nowhere. A familiar bulky presence steps out and confronts them. ‘Detective Tannen, Temporal Preservation Squadron.’ I’m afraid you’re all under arrest’…
I love this plot the best of all...!
I'm a die-hard fan of Back To The Future and I would [b] EXTREMELY [b]

Also if you could [u] NOT [u] blow this off, that would be wonderful.

I really, really hated the 2010 one. One of Biff's relatives as a time cop? Time cops? That's like a completely different franchise.
I liked the other premises, though. I think the 1968 one was my favorite. Marty interacting with his pregnant mother has a lot of potential for crazy time-stream-altering mishaps. It just feels like an appropriate Back to the Future story to me.
I thought the 1938 one sounded pretty fun. I love the idea of visiting the '30s and seeing young Doc.
I was a little bit bothered by the fact that none of the proposed dates ended in five. It's not the most important thing in the world, but every date visited in the movies ended in five, and it's sort of become one of the more iconic aspects of the series.

And then you have to apply that you are fan of the series.
When it asked "How likely would you be to purchase a Back to the Future video game for Xbox 360, PS3, or PC/Mac?", are we supposed to assume it means a game by Telltale? I'm pretty much guaranteed to buy a TTG BttF game (which is how I answered), but I'm substantially less likely if it's by someone else.

Regarding the time cops, and the Doc losing interest in science, I wrote that I'd like the storylines as long as they make sure to justify them
We know from the movies that Doc actually has gone down the science path in his life before the movies began, and we know that they haven't been chased down by time cops in the movies.
If they're going to introduce these concepts in the games, they must occur due to some change in time, brought on by either the protagonists or the antagonists.
I could easily imagine the time train crash mentioned in their concepts leading to someone down the line developing their own time travel technology, so our heroes must find a way to deal with enemies with time travel of their own.

I'm 61 - evidently, too old to participate. This is dumb, dumb, dumb - I've been heavily into games for some thirty-five years now, and absolutely loved the BTTF films. Why am I not wanted in this survey? Reminds me of the marketing firm who worked with us on the Lemmings games. Our oldest (verified) Lemmings fans were, on the average, 85. Our youngest, 4. The marketing outfit decided that Lemmings wasn't worth pursuing because 15-through-20 year old males didn't care for it. But that was never our market anyway! Twits.

If TTG gets the chance to add a Sam & Max reference to the BttF games, I think it would be awesome for one character to ask what Max is, and for Doc Brown to analyze him correctly as a "Hyperkinetic rabbity thing".

On the topic of years ending in 5, it occurs to me that if this story takes place some time "after" the original trilogy, then it might be based in 1986 instead. In which case, all the other years they visit should also end with 6 (2016, 1926, etc.).
Comment by Jota

Really, the years ending in 5 wasn't actually dogma. In the alternate script for BTTF II, Bob Gale had no problem sending Marty to 1967.
Comment by Vainamoinen
July 9, 2010, 12:48 am
It would be a good idea to make the games time line run parallel to the films in the same way the movies run parallel to each other, making equivilants of lous cafe/cafe 80s/palace saloon, the skateboard chases etc. Also a good use of recurring gags from the films would ad to a familiarity between the films and the game.
Comment by Adam Rees
July 9, 2010, 3:08 am
That idea is brilliant. I'm a fun of the BTTF. Firstly, you may create a game totally adventure game(Monkey Island) or action adventure ( indiana jones ). In adventure part you follow up the story. The action part we can drive the dolorian. I think this is the best part.
By the way, if you try to make this lagend become a game , dont bless up the game engine and graphics. This is the most important part of the game. Otherwise, it will become a garbage.

You all are probably going to hate me, but i am still of the mind that any vehicle used from hereon out should NOT be a Delorian... There are plenty of modern day vehicles that could be given that iconic "time machine" image, trust me
Plus it makes perfect sense that if anyone else built another time machine they would use a more modern vehicle

July 9, 2010, 6:52 am
For me, Marty and Doc's roles as time explorers coming to terms with the implications of their actions with only their own perspectives to go by is fairly key to what Back to the Future is all about. To introduce some sort of external control (Temporal Preservation Squadron) would detract pretty heavily from that.
Plus the Tannen archetype could be seriously undermined if it had some sort of legitimate authority instead of just being a bully.
Comment by Cheeseness
July 9, 2010, 8:00 am
'68 was the best. It had potential for plot twists and serious timeline altering. Plus there is one goal to achieve the necklace, which, once acquired, opens possibilities for another story. Plus it would be fun to see Marty deliver himself into the world. That would be heavy ;)
All the stuff with temporal scanners and temporal police... no. I hear Doc screaming in my head: "NO, You musn't tell anyone that the time machine exists!". Part of BttF is the secrecy and amateurish approach to time traveling. Temporal Police Squadron is something completely different. Also the part where's Marty working with himself is against the principles from 1st and 2nd movie.

July 9, 2010, 10:57 am
Here are a few suggestions:
I know it might not fit your budget, but having at least some of the original actors to do the voice acting for the game would guarantee you an instant hit.
Setting the game in a free roam environment, and being able to freely time travel between all of the key time periods would be great.
Instead of treating this game as a "sequel" to the movies, the movie trilogy itself deserves to have a game made after it. It would be awesome to "experience" touring through Hill Valley in all of it's different time periods.
When making this game, it is crucial for you to have a "what would Zemeckis do?" approach, and not try to "reinvent" Back to the Future. (Tannen would never have a police role for example, if anyone would be a "time cop" it would be Strickland)
Being able to travel to a period you already visited, and to see "yourself" would be a funny effect. (have the game record your actions so you can see a copy of yourself doing exactly what you did when you visited that era earlier, and if you interrupt yourself, make it destroy the space-time continuum)
I can't stress enough, give the player FREEDOM. If you make the game feel linear, it won't be very fun. If we have to make it to a certain place at a certain time, that's fine, but at least give us the freedom to get sidetracked and do a few side missions or just explore Hill Valley.
Good luck you guys! I just completed your survey and I can't describe how excited I am to relive Back to the Future in a video game! Stay true to Back to the Future story elements and you will have a blockbuster game. You have my purchase already! (PS, nix the train, we fans want the delorean even though it was destroyed in BTTF 3)

Since you are making a game, can we play as somebody other than Marty or Dr. Brown? Both of them should be in the game, but I would love to be able to play one of Doc's kids at least partially grown.
I like the Jules Verne novel. It would be interesting to make it an easy puzzle to get the book into his hands only to find out the dust cover was wrong - and you gave him something else. Eg a Fantasy causing Doc Brown to go into Alchemy instead - or a book that hints teleportation. Completely ruining everything.
But mostly I like the idea of stopping the time stream being altered by others.
Maybe Marty could visit the past and prevent Tell Tale from inventing the soda poppers.

Comment by Anthony Burkert
July 9, 2010, 5:58 pm
I didn't have a chance to mention this in the survey, but something very important to me is the voice acting.
I realize Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd (or even Dan Castalleneta), Lea Thompson, and Crispin Glover might be a little out of your price range, but it's very important to me that whoever fills their shoes gets the characters down right, not just an approximation of their voices. I generally trust Telltale in this regard--your versions of Sam and Max are now the definitive voices in my mind, and I wasn't completely convinced until I read the credits that your Wallace WASN'T Peter Sallis--but it was important enough to me to mention.
At any rate, you might be able to afford Tom Wilson, although I don't know if he'll want to do the role given his "I'm-not-Biff" persona from his standup. Still, it couldn't hurt to ask him, and he's appeared in nearly every incarnation of the franchise so far, including the ride and animated series. It's because of his hilarious yet terrifying performances that the Tannen Family is my favorite collection of movie villains.
It would be nice if the game were based on the GTA series, like gameplay and freedom, as well as the cutscenes and the graphics, and I would very much like if the game had a version for Playstation2.

Much like you did with Ron Gilbert for Tales.
There used to be a GREAT article/interview with him about the "rules" of the BTTF universe (how the "ripple effect" was imagined and more) - but sadly I can't find it anymore.

A few comments I have that didn't make it into the survey.
1. I didn't list the Time Train as one of the necessary elements of Back to the Future, but it is important. I've been hearing some people hate on the train, but It is at least as badass as the DeLorean, and it kind of has to be a part of future installments. The Delorean was smashed (though that could be fixed without too much trouble), and heck, I think the Brown family lives in that Train sometimes.
2. Why do none of those four scenarios take place in the future? One of my favorite scenes in BttF was the depiction of the future, and in a game I'd look forward to exploring later dates in the timeline.

I think going back to all 4 environments, 1885, 1955, 1985, 2015 is something to keep in mind purely because they are what we know!
key features are definately
marty (obviously) , Doc Brown (obviously), the other characters, Lorraine, George, Strickland and definately Biff!
Skateboard chases!! dont leave them out! HOVERBOARD counts!!!
Johnny B Goode!! Marvin Berry (just classic)
Lightening is fairly dominant in the first 2 films
I can't stress this enough...... The Time Machine ALWAYS BREAKS!!!
No one can know about the time machine
keep it contained within Hill Valley
Docs Various Dogs
Getting Stuck in time is always there, its also a good feature to prolong the games playability
adding new characters is not a good idea.
Flying cars are cool and you know it! lol
wandering the same environment in a different time (we all know marty walks and crosses his feet whilst taking everything in)
Detail is everything!
Docs offscale models!! so good!!!
Something to keep in mind is that its not all about action its about the characters and what journey they are on, sounds kinda cheesy but its the truth.
As chronologically true as it is the train is not really as cool as the delorean. the delorean is very important to the series.
There is more but it's mostly been said already.
theres alot of possibilities for the game, free roam, puzzles, "races" against time, alternate endings depending on the actions we take (take a page outta heavy rains book)
really hope this game works out well!

Very good points, most of these are part of BttF DNA, the things that make BttF BttF. Something to remember when constructing a story for BttF universe.
I would like to distress that there are few crucial elements to follow (IMO):
Doc is the Brains (somewhat clueless part of the time)
Marty is the "brawns" (also clueless, most of the time)
Lorraine is the mistress (Oedipal love reversed)
Biff is the enemy
Time travel TO is easy. Time travel FROM is a problem.
Music, humour, and good times when everything is wrong.
Comment by Macco
July 15, 2010, 2:19 pm
Ok. I have a good idea for an 3 part episode series. Since Marty never broke his hand and gave up music, he had enough money to be able to support 3 children. He has a third son named Scott (in remembrence of Doc) who is 15 . Marty has written stories of his time travel adventures with doc on his computer. Scott looks on his dads computer (without him knowing it), reads these stories, and finds out about the time machine. On the day that Marty and Doc come to 2015, Scott "borrows" the time machine and goes back to "October 27th 1985". He sees some sights and then gets ready to bring the time machine back. He goes on a road and starts driving up to 88 mph. He hits 88, just as he hits his teenage dad's car that just went into reverse from the race that didn't break his hand. He crashes into his dad , but is sent back to 1925 (because it damaged the time circuts) and is stuck with a broke delorean without help. But luckily, Doc Brown and Clara are still alive.(they went back in the time train back to 1885 with Julles and Verne). Because he hit his dad and broke his hand, scott begins to be erased from existence. Its up to Him and Doc to fix the delorean and stop him from hitting his dad, before he doesn't exist.
Pretty good huh. leave me a comment to let me know what you think.
P.S. That was just Part 1!

As soon as i heard there was going to be a game of BTTF, i was very excited, the trilogy are my fav films of all time and knowing a game is coming is just brilliant to know.
I played the Grand theft auto BTTF edition on the pc, so that kind of gameplay would be good i think and to include as much as possible in the game, eg: Hover Boards, The Delorean OBVIOUSLY, all the characters from the films, maybe some sort of gameplay with the Train at the end of part 3, going back to each individual year would be a great idea.
However the game comes out though, i will be buying!!!!!!
HURRY UP AND RELEASE THE GAME NOW!!!!

It has been almost 25 years, and there is no any sequel for this awsome movie. No merchandises, games or toys. Almost forgotten.
When Telltale mentioned a game, I didn,t believe it. A game after all these years? There was one pc dos game and a snes game which is awsome by the way. I am a HUGE fan of this and I,d kill for Back to the future game,but what kind of a game can you make for thise movie? Like old ones -platform. Jurassic Park is easier becasue there are millions of JP games. Many references.
Whatever it is. I still can,t believe and I can,t wait. It is a game that has already been to late to be designed. Thx to telltale it is here at last after all those years.
I am a huge fan that I made an illustration of Back to the future last year. Check it out here:

Bagrisham: Not sure if you get to see this since it's been a while since anyone commented here - but just wanted to say nice work! That plot idea indicates that you seem to "get" how classic BTTF storylines work - creating a spin on previous events without completely fracturing the movie plots - something that neither the "examples" in the questionnaire or any other suggestion here seem to have really grasped. Colour me impressed! The only issue I might have would be the idea of Doc and Clara staying put in Hill Valley from 1885 all the way to 1925, which would seem to "lock down" their adventures for 40 years.
What I think is key here is the notion of the bulk of the adventure taking place well "outside" of the movies' different points in time (1885, 1955, 1985, 2015). Otherwise, if these new adventures were to take place in the midst of the established events, it becomes to easy to imagine that any alteration to history would unravel all the hard work that Marty had to do in BTTF I, II & III.
