Possible BTTF Season 2 ideas/speculation/suggestion

posted by itssas83 on - last edited - Viewed by 27K 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!

  • @Michael J Fox is Canadian said: Doc changes into FCB because Doc has spent over two decades away from his timeline. He's not the same age as FCB n 1986.

    Isn't the blue Delorean Marty the one who marries Tiff Tannen? Kind of weird for him to end up with his step sister.

    Think of it this way;
    -Lone Pines 2015 Biff goes back to 1955. We see him in 1955 during what is now the biffhoric timeline (where it's implied he doesnt live until 2015). In the eastwood timeline he could get another time machine and go back to 1955 again and we have the same scenario.

    The reason those 3 marty's show up at that specific time is that it's the earlier they can show up without preventing the critical 1931 trips. All 3 of them were likely that 1986 Marty at some point in their timelines. The timelines skewed at some point

    Interesting theory. But I disagree with it. I still believe you only catch up with the timestream if you erase your time travel existence (Died or otherwise).

    Well is it not logical that could have happened with Doc; He spends at least 10 years away from his timeline prior to returning around the end of part III and likely 10 more prior to the game (Jules is around college age) plus any of his travels alone with the delorean at the end of part I (we can only assume whether he went other places aside from 2015). If he's 18 in 1931 that means he should naturally be around 73 in 1986 but old doc has been alive for over 90 years so not hard to assume FCB doesn't live that long. You could also argue that because of how critical FCB is to that timeline, old doc had to be erased to make way for FCB (perhaps the same thing happens with Biff in 2015, that biff disappears but another rich one is there).

    It shouldn't matter how big of a change it is. George beating up Biff and having a better life would have had a significant impact on Martys life. The least that could happen is his memory of these events would catch up with the timeline. Also I am pretty sure Biff faded because he got killed in the new timeline.

    If his age did change then he would probably not fade out but be surprised that he looks younger.

    Marty was expected to be somewhere in FCB timeline so why wouldn't he disappear into that Marty?

  • @yoman45135 said: are you joking? a cartoony style is the worst for a bttf game

    So you want Crysis graphics for BTTF? Good bleedin' luck with that kiddo. It's cartoony or nothing, take your pick.

    @yoman45135 said: As much as I loved this season, there is one thing that would have made it better.

    ...That would be??

    We're not saying the graphics have to be ultra realistic. But the cartoon design has to go. Like I said earlier, they should use a graphic style similar to JP only with a bit more polished. There's a difference between graphic quality and graphic design. I'm not complaing that BTTF has out dated graphics but more like the design of it was off.

    Look at Zelda SS. They did their best with SD wii graphics by making the art style beautiful although textures are low res.

    Except Doc got rejuvenated hence why he looks young for his age. It's the same deal as Biff, Doc doesn't live to his current age in the new timeline and thus fades.

    JP is about as good as it would get.

  • One thing that I would have loved as a feature in the BTTF game is the possibility to wonder off and do your own thing. I know its an adventure game with missions, but I found it pretty limiting on how much of Hill Valley you can actually visit.

    With this game series, you guys can finally give BTTF that fourth writing, a continuation that you can lead fans in, but also give them the freedom to explore back into the original movies.

    Have BTTF 1,2,3 re-visited with the game.

    1. Get Marty to go back and get the Sports Almanac.
    2. Let Marty JR from the future get arrested and then Doc and Marty try and prevent Marleen from getting arrested for breaking out her brother.
    3. Lets live those years that Doc is back in the old west building his Train Time Machine.

    Make it a prequel pack or something where we fill in the blanks of all the cool things from the original movies. That would be Awesome.

    The game wouldn't feel the same then, it's gonna be Cartoony. Unless the game is remade, it's gonna be Cartoon like. Maybe the quality could be upgraded, to Jurassic Parks standard, but other then that then that's what the game will look like.

    Were making a new season, not a remake or a new game. So Zelda is out of the question.

    Yeah well I think I speak for most people when I say season two should feel like BTTF and not just more episodes. They need to treat season two like a sequel and not more of the same gameplay. Otherwise they can not really improve much.

    It's a BTTF fan service game. Would you rather have the art style feel like the movie that the game is representing or a cartoony style that doesn't not resemble the movie or even the content of the game just because it's another season?

    Plus it's a horrible graphics choice. As I said it's a game with mature content. People will get the impression this is for kids. I wouldn't mind if there were a few hidden sexual references but they're not hidden and it has a fair bit of swearing. I'm no art designer, but I can tell you that that's an awful choice.

  • My favourite back to the future is number 2, i loved the idea of what the future would be like, hence i was disappointed that there was no travelling into the future in the first games series. I did however love the idea of the story, i would welcome any more adventures from the doc and marty

    BUT PLEASE HAVE SOME ADVENTURES SET IN THE FUTURE!!!!!!

    I have loved back to the future since the day i first saw it as a young boy, and i will love it until the day i die!!!! BEST MOVIES EVER (Slightly eclipsing The Matrixes)
