Possible BTTF Season 2 ideas/speculation/suggestion

posted by itssas83 on - last edited - Viewed by 10.9K users

ok first things first, I have made this page in hopes of gathering some reasonable suggestions to making the possible BttF: Season Two more enjoyable, not so everyone can post whats been said a million times about the puzzle difficulty, so here goes...

Make Puzzles more Complex/Fun/Creative/Etc.. (its said, moving on...)

One thing I been thinking about a lot these past few days is Jurassic Park, and how it will be the first game that Telltale will give you the option, or misfortune, of dying. I was thinking that we can incorporate a similar concept into the BttF series, which i would like to call "Caught Scenes". In the next paragraph I take 2 examples of this concept and explore possible scenarios from season one.

1931, when you and Doc are getting ready to jump into the Delorean, Officer Parker walks up and tries to put an end to the fun. Well what if you failed to get the keys and jump in the Delorean in time, and Parker catches you. Would he shoot/arrest you and Carl Sagan, altering the future forever?

When you are back in 1931 hiding behind the tree, what would happen if you failed to lure your alt self away from that tree? "Caught Scene" begins of you coming face to face with your alternative self, breaking rule #1 of time travel, causing irreparable damage to the time space continuum?!?!

personally i have found that if your not allowed to generally suffer some type of consequences for your actions, and puzzles essentially play on a harmless loop, the game just becomes repetitive and kinda boring. As a BttF fan, i think this would also be an exciting and safe way to explore the consequences of time travel and paradoxes etc. without having to have it play into the actual storyline. this alone could lead to some really exciting ideas.

as we know from the "its a wrap" video, telltale listens to us at the forums and values our opinions. this is a great chance to give our two cents, for whatever it might be worth! even if they use just use one or two suggestions everything can make a difference!

    Medieval times would be one era not explored in BTTF. With time travel the possibilities are pretty endless.



    Well that would make no sense because if im right there was no medieval times in america (Britian stilll owned america I think or they didnt discover them something like that)

    Besides medieval is boring in my opinion I would rather see the 50's again or the wild west or the future.

    The only way a trip to the Medieval ages would work is if they confirmed that the DeLorean could travel to specified places as well as times. This would require a little logic stretching, considering the options given by the time circuits, or an entirely new time circuit display. While it is implied that the DeLorean can travel through space as well as time, it's never really a set destination.

  • I really hope they treat this as a sequel and not more episodes of the same gameplay. The cartoon graphics have to go. I would like a little more free roam exploration and maybe some platforming not just an adventure point and click. In fact that's my major problem with BTTFTG. I hate adventure games. Good on story but weak on gameplay. There needs to be some more action involved. I would love for some uncharted like platforming while keeping some of the point and click/puzzle mechanics.

    Also is it just me or does Marty not seem like Marty anymore? He seems like a kid not a teenager.

    If they go back to the 1930's again the fans would have a crapfest. They already spend 3 and a half episodes there.

    I can't remember who made the quote but when part IV was at it's height of rumours (late 90's) someone brought up Doc mixing wits with Merlin. Still I can't see them going outside 1800-2100
    -if they go to the past it's usually about cause an effect. As mentioned they'd have to leave hill valley (and if you include the game and the films the only scenes outside of hill valley are Marty's entrance into 1885 in part III and ending up on the outskirts at the beginning of episode 3.

    I'm assuming the DeLorean CAN travel across space, seems awfully convenient that the automatic retreival system landed it on docs doorstep. But so far every time travel we've seen with someone driving the car, the car ends up in the same spot. Regardless though, the setting should remain Hill valley.

    People were mad about the lack of time travel in the first game, they can make up for it here. Set each episode in a different time.

  • Keep in mind that time travel pretty much HAS to involve space travel to work at all. If one were to travel through time to the exact same spot in real space, to an arbitrary date and time, the rotation and position of the earth would have changed. In fact, given an expanding universe, even if one were to go to the right moment in time, say exactly one year ago taking leap seconds into account, the "real" location of the planet would be closer in to (the past) or farther out from (the future) the Big Bang origin point. And I'm not sure we even have a good coordinate system for measuring and placing the destination point -- almost everything we have ever had to calculate is relative to our own solar system.

    Time travel to the same exact spot on a spinning, moving oblate spheroid in an expanding universe system means we have to somehow comprehend a relative system we can't currently even observe from any useful vantage point. Doc Brown rocks. :)

  • They need to make better graphics for a season 2 and make it less cartoony style story as well, I know thats hard for telltale because they concentrate on unrealistic cartoony games but for back to the future they should change there rules a bit or there will be a second wave of people spreading hate about how much the graphics suck (yes telltale fanboys there are people who dont enjoy cartoony graphics unlike you, not to spread any hate of course :rolleyes: )

  • If there is a sequel I doubt there will be any major change in style as then it wouldn't match or at least be close to the original game. I know that in some game series each individual game has a different style (like the Gabriel Knight series) but I don't think Telltale would do that, I feel that they're more likely just to improve the style they used on the first game like how the Sam & Max games have progressed - looking better with the upgrades to the Telltale Tool but still having the same style. This is if a sequel occurs sooner rather than later. If it happens way down the line then there may well be changes to the style.

    I don't think the game is coming for a few years Why? Because the release date is obviously going to be October 21 2015 at 4:29 PM

    I actually felt that the cartoony style was perfect for bttf and the graphics was not next-gen by any means but I still liked it.
