Possible BTTF Season 2 ideas/speculation/suggestion

posted by itssas83 on - last edited - Viewed by 26.1K 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!

  • 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.

  • After seeing some footage of JP I think that's what the next BTTF game should look like with a little more polish.

    On a side note JP looks like crap.

  • Branching character arcs a la Mass Effect would really be the only thing I want from any Telltale game. I'm hoping to see some of this in the upcoming Walking Dead games (I read somewhere that this was a whole thing.)

    BTTF is the perfect place for this kind of mess, with the perfect way to wrap it all up being that he fixes the initial problem that caused any deaths/changes at the end of the arc, magically fixing most of the damage he'd done but storing the data on certain choices so that future dialogue trees and developments are affected.

    That's what I want.

    are you joking? a cartoony style is the worst for a bttf game

  • A cartoon style game based on a live action movie?

    Also the cartoon style would give people the impression that this was designed for kids. Yet the movies have cuss words, sexual references (And they didn't try to hide them) and the game follows this style closely for the most part.

    What do you think a parent will say when they buy this for their kid, only to hear s**t, or Jesus Christ, or a magazine that says porn on it?

    The graphics don't fit.

    I couldnt agree more it's like saying that cartoon graphics fit gta better than realistic graphics

  • I think a comic book style would go nicely for special cut scenes.
