Possible BTTF Season 2 ideas/speculation/suggestion

posted by itssas83 on - last edited - Viewed by 20K 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!

    In the film if a time traveller does something and then goes back in time and changes it, either the universe will explode or a alternative timeline will be created.

    simply:

    You went back in time to stop inventing your time machiene, if you stopped yourself building a time machiene how would you of got to the past.

    thus a paradox happens.

    I agree but there's already been 2 or 3 timelines where the time machine doesn't get invented (Biffhoric, FCB, burnt down hill valley) so I don't see why not. I wouldnt mind replaying more events from the film.

  • My new succes criteria (Stars are the things which I find important.)

    - All original actors to voice the people *

    - A story which is not over the top but links to the end of season 1 *

    - The game to have the graphics like jurrasic park but with more polish *

    - More people around hill valley (Like the amount there is in the cut scene when marty arrives in 1931)


    And most important... tell us when season 2 is out before E3 I dont want to wait that long :D

  • By "All original actors", do you mean the actors from the movies, or just the cast from the first game?

    the movies is a pipe dream. Lloyd and Wells are likely, Steenburger probably would if Clara were made a part of the game. Wilson is out, not sure about Lea Thompson (she seems to embrace the series though). With George, they wont get Crispin Glover and Jeffrey Weissman only had 1 line n the 'present' at the end of part III.


    Wasn't the first season announced at E3 2010? I follow BTTF pretty closely and didnt hear about this game until august 2010 and of course we got our first episode in december.

  • But Michael J. Fox could barely do his role in the game. A.J. will probably do it again. I already know Lloyd will be doing it. As for Crispin Glover and Thomas F. Wilson, probably not.

    O.K., I have another idea. What if Doc and Marty go to the deep future, and discover it a wasteland because of some accident that happened it the eighties, and they have to go back and stop it from happening?

  • @Michael J Fox is Canadian said: Wilson is out

    Because telltale said so? Dont get me wrong im not saying telltale are scammers but Tom Wilson responded to someone on youtube saying something along the lines of: 'I would of loved to of been in the game but telltale never asked me'

    Telltale said it he didnt want anything to do with it, most likely his agent did not send the message to him.

    So if they asked him face to face I think it is likely he will be in season 2.

    Also I would like to see Mary Steenburgen and the time train to appear, I dont care much about Jules and Verne.

    Also a few people have said this and I will repeat it again I want the graphics to be like the ones in Jurassic park because I find it to be a important aspect to make it look right, I said before I dont usually give a toss about good graphics (Nearly all my favourite games have terrible graphics) but in back to the future's case it needs to look right, the enviorment is really good (Buildings, tree's and cars.) But the characters look really weird.

    If telltale make the graphics better I will be forever thankfull :p

    Didnt wilson himself abandon BTTF around 5 years back? If he's on board, great. I do think it's time to bring in steenburger. This thing is all about doc and marty but in the trilogy her importance is on the same level as george, and lorraine and a step behind Biffs (probably ahead of Jennifer though who is only important for the first act of part II).

    Yeah maybe it's a nuclear waste dump and they use the plutonium delorean so one of the puzzles is finding plutonium and putting it in the delorean.

    Of course they are using the mr fusion version so im not sure how it would work but it would be a killer puzzle for both puzzle gamers and bttf fans.

    That's a bad idea. Time is endless. So there is unlimited number of adventures to be had. That can be used as an excuse to make more and more BTTF to the point were it is an extremely milked/overrated franchise. They can go to the far future and then even further and further.

    I personally think we should stick with the time periods that we have. I am all far discovering a new time period but I don't think we should have an end of the world million year future or go to the begging of time.

    I have some ideas for possible years we visit.

    1885
    1925
    1930
    1955
    1985
    2015
    2025
    2085

    I don't mean any offense but your idea seems like a cash-in for a lack of a better word.
