Possible BTTF Season 2 ideas/speculation/suggestion

posted by itssas83 on - last edited - Viewed by 19.7K 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!

    ...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.

  • @Tornreaper said: 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?

    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)

  • Main things I want:

    1. A story that makes sense and fits in with season 1 but I dont want it to be silly and over the top.

    2. Great voice actors also I hope telltale get Tom Wilson to voice Biff Tannen

    3. Longer episodes with more puzzles like the one in outatime where you have to connect the satellite dishes to the delorean.

    4. Better graphics which are slightly better than the Jurrasic park graphics and I will be happy.

  • @yoman45135 said: Main things I want:

    That is the #1 essencial thing for this game to really come together with the current elements the game already has.

    Biff's voice is synonymous with who that character is.

  • I want the game to have more of a movie feel like Heavy rain but still have some fun factor in it. I also want a small open world type game so we can explore hill Valley.

  • Just played the entire series in two days. I really want a second season. Loved the story(telling). Setting, characters, character development, dialogue, everything was great about that, just like the movies. Loved the gameplay, though I admit it was maybe too easy at times, though for me great difficulty is not a requirement for this type of game. Graphics were generally good, same as most other Telltale Games, fit for the job, except in most of the episodes (2 through 5, I think) I encountered graphical glitches at some points in the games that were annoying/made it difficult to continue without restarting the game or changing the graphical settings first. What I'd say is: Telltale, keep up the good work, and keep the games coming. Also, while I'm at it, I suggest a new Hector season, if possible, and maybe more Puzzle Agent/Strong Bad... And possible more Tales of Monkey Island, Wallace & Gromit and Bone series, but can't say for sure since I haven't played through those yet. In general, keep giving us more amazing point-and-click adventure/puzzle games.

    @Tornreaper said: I also want a small open world type game so we can explore hill Valley.

    That's not going to happen with Telltale's games for sure, since they're point-and-click adventure games... But I would love for there to be an open-world BTTF game, maybe an MMO... But unlike Star Trek and Star Wars and other big franchises on which MMORPGs are being based, BTTF doesn't have nearly as much material/content/story to it, since there were only 3 original movies. As you said, it'd have to be a small game, which would make it unfit for multiplayer in MMO style...
