How much time does it take to play an episode?

Hello.

Bit of an odd question because i know this is probably different for each person but ...

I was just wondering, whats the average gameplay time / estimate on each episode of the BTTF Game? Because i'm really looking forward to it. It's the thing i'm waiting for this month. :cool:

Just wanna know how long we can enjoy the wonders of BTTF per episode :D So we know whether these are short medium or long episodes.

Was hoping that one the Telltale Devs could give an answer to this (Well Kinda). :)

  • its totally relevant
    I can explain,

    Sometimes when you play the FIRST time you miss viewing items or trying things on things to see what happens.
    When I did this most times Id skip the OTHER already heard dialog. Making the episode shorter

    even without skipping ..its not 4+ hours unless you meander around clicking nothing.(its more close to 1-2 hours some SHORTER even listening to dialog)

    most MI series took 1hr or so.. minus one or two stumper puzzles which were answered in forum (see the fire on the ship) darn that clothesline

    CSI takes longer as dialog seems to be its only point of strength but even then its droll and I skipped most of it FIRST play through.

    But saying its not relevant.. seems a bit callous :P
    I get your meaning but you didnt get mine XD

    Peace be da' journey

    @jp-30 said: I don't really see how a 2nd playthrough time, skipping dialogue, is relevant.

    Maybe there are people just in for the actual gameplay of the episodes? ;)

    What are you doing up so early.

    Getting ready for work :D

    Anyway, 2 hours sounds a bit short but i'm the kind of guy that explore every bit of the game, and no skipping dialogues. So i'm going to play the game slow then :p

    Point and click adventure games are for the patient people, i know some friends of mine they are like "*Cutscene talk* Ohh cmon hurry up already CLICKCLICK" racing through the game, thats no fun :eek:

  • I think all are missing the point

    Even my first play through ... is short without skipping anything (unless of course I missed it not like SKIP cuts or dialog)
    ONLY game IVE DONE THAT TOO is CSI.. which is DROLL

    Trackah123 assuming im not patient in gaming. Assuming is bad :P well sometimes good.. but not in this case.

    and im no newbie.. wow..
    anyway at least you added the smile, but you still misunderstand.

    Ok for me its about 1-2 hours depending on the game NO SKIPPING..
    with skipping its 30min-1hr min if I know the puzzles as well.

    And I LOVE to look at all context fillers. But you should and do know that telltale didnt add hardly anything to say.. sam and max season 1. Same buildings had same items with same descriptions. So episode 1 took me longer, than the rest. Get me ?
    argghhh...

    why do people misunderstand me. Its not a gloat people. Im just stating the facts as I view them. Which makes them real, same as all your facts.

    I think maybe people think its slightly dubious that you'd complete TTG episodes in an hour on your first play though without skipping or using walkthroughs.

    You are in the vast minority if you can complete them that quickly.

  • Uhh... I've tested games in parser for most of my young life in socal for a small company
    again Sierra ON-LINE .. not this sierra most know now..(you force me to name drop to make myself look less like I'm lying more qualified need my resume?)


    also tested many many games for major companies (small role but yea) Some you might be surprised at.

    Ask any of the playtesters how long it took them to beat strong bad episode 1 2 3 4 5
    Or W&G vs say MI .. MI took longer by far than most.

    its all depending on the game..
    I said one of the monkey island episodes got me really stumped and I had to come here to find the answer without google and ruining the entire game with a guide.
    its why i like the hide boxes here :P

    but yep no joke.. its that fast on most episodes, unless context filler is added.
    And this thread wasn't (are you in a vast minority)
    A question was asked, I answered honestly.
    This is now the 3rd thread of harassment in 2 days..
    odd
    logic states I would be at fault but ive read my posts, and I stick by them 99%
    (always leave at least 1% in case of twins !) bad baby joke

  • @Kaldire

    Everything i said was ment in general, not to you at all :eek:
    I ment it as my opinion and what my friends do mostly.

    Let me explain my last post again in my point of view.

    Anyway, 2 hours sounds a bit short


    This was a reply to "Vainamoinen" post #3

    but i'm the kind of guy that explore every bit of the game, and no skipping dialogues. So i'm going to play the game slow then


    Just how i play games

    Point and click adventure games are for the patient people


    Again this was ment in general and how i think about it, not assuming anything nor an answer to someone specific :) hence the word "People" .. People=not you personal Kaldire but just in general :)

    i know some friends of mine they are like "*Cutscene talk* Ohh cmon hurry up already CLICKCLICK" racing through the game, thats no fun


    This is what most of my friends do. Also no answer to someone specific.

    I'm sorry if i caused any misunderstandings.

  • Exactly 3-9 hours.

    Btw i wasn't aware that my keyboard is able to produce such characters: ‰

  • you can use ascii or high ascii

    TellTale Games TTG™

  • @Origami said:
    I estimate the playing time around 8 hours?

    I would not expect an 8 hour episode.
