Possible BTTF Season 2 ideas/speculation/suggestion

posted by itssas83 on - last edited - Viewed by 11.0K 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!

  • @Tornreaper said: I would love for Uncharted type gameplay. The movies are adventure movies. While this is an adventure game, they do not share the same qualities unless it is an action adventure. The insane platforming and stealth of Uncharted 3 mixed with some of the puzzle elements of this game would be a perfect fit.



    Yes but not with all the guns and falling throught roofs or that would be over the top but yes uncharted style would be perfect

    Yeah gun play would not suit BTTF. But I disagree with there not being over the top platforming. I was thinking that they could ripoff the train scene for Uncharted 2 with the time train lol.

    Anyways , do you think it's possible that the other Martys are from different timelines?

  • As much as I loved this season, there is one thing that would have made it better.

    They have to be, they even say they are

    What about timelines that we have already seen? It seems (IMO) that a time traveler doesn't catch up with the timestream unless they either die or change them from time traveling in the first place. That's why Doc turned into FCB. That's why Marty doesn't recognize the timeline changes because although it's part of his timeline he never experienced it. If Doc still traveled though time then he would be with Marty and have no idea that he runs Hill Valley.

    So it makes sense. If some changes result in Marty traveling through time then the change will not affect them.

    My guess is the second Marty is part of our final timeline and the forth is maybe part of the "Hell Valley" timeline. I'm not so sure about the blue one though.

    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?

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