Possible BTTF Season 2 ideas/speculation/suggestion

posted by itssas83 on - last edited - Viewed by 21.6K 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!

    Just finished 6)Edna was a disagreeable selfish little hellspawn, but she had a backstory, a purpose, a complex personality. She was actually interesting. I prefer Doc as a bachelor, but I'd choose her over Clara anyway.

    No, no I dont I want to go to maybe 2020 or 2030.

    Also Clara had a purpose she causes the problem which has to be resolved, without her Doc would of got in the DeLorean and got to 1985 and it would of all been good but because she is there she comes on to the train, almost dies and has to be rescued by Doc which created much tension during the train scene.

    Also even though it is just a film so I sound like a physco when I say this, I understood Docs pain when he had to leave Clara behind, so basically she creates a lot of emotion because you feel sympathy for Doc.

    But yes Edna was a good character but it felt like she had been forced in because there was no indication in the film Mr Strickland had a sister.

    Personnally I dont really want telltale to keep on with Edna in season 2 her moment of fame was season 1, most people have said they want to see Clara so instead of adding alternative versions of jennifer which dont look anything like her they could add characters fans want to see.

    Clara inadvertantly adds to the conflict in the third film; think of how it would have played out without her; Doc and Marty decide on the plan to use the train to get back. Realizing Buford is after him, they would stay inside for the remainder. Doc likely only went to the festival so he could see Clara so without her there is no run in with tannen. Doc wouldn't have gone to the salloon so even if Tannen was still after him he wouldn't find him there. They'd get back to 1985, Doc would let the time machine get destroyed and his greatest invention may or may not go to waste- it's up to interpretation why he builds the time train. You could argue that he had another 'what the hell?' moment like he had in the first film and thus still would have built a second time machine had he returned to 1985. Some believe Clara inspired him. Or you could also argue he does it to get Einstein and see marty one more time.

    Edna was a good choice. They did all they could with Biff in the first two films. She's also set up where she's a protagonist for the first 2 episodes and antagonist for the last 3. There was very little development of Strickland other than he hasn't had hair for minimum 30 years and he's from a long line of disciplinarians. The stricklands had already been established as antagonist and protagonists; Mr. Strickland is more of an antagonist towards the McFly's in the first 2 films but Marshall is a protagonist. That being said her character has run it's course. I'm thinking the tannens of the future could be the next villains.

  • I haven't been on in a while. Hows everyone doing? Are they making a season two?

  • @caeska said: The problem is that Telltale is too afraid to make actual changes in the BTTF universe. For example, there are no main character deaths, important character developments, important revelations about the past or any such things. You can be damn sure that everything will be back to the same way it was before when this season is over.
    So what's the point? Make a season 2 that's exactly the same, I mean do you really want that? There is fan fiction out there that is much much better and is brilliantly written.

    Firstly I didn't see the point of setting the game in the 1980's, right after the events of BTTF 3. That may have made sense 20 years ago, but now? Give me a break.
    It just seemed to me that TTG caved in to the fan demands of featuring teenage Marty and the Delorean even though it probably wasn't the best decision from a creative standpoint.

    Marty is pretty much a developed character, and there is not much to work with there. The Delorean was destroyed, that particular vehicle's story is over. Sure, Doc can rebuild it, like he did in the Kristen Sheley fanfic. Later on the Delorean also got permanently destroyed and it was replaced with another model from the 2030s.
    But coming up with a retarded justification that the car was duplicated when it was hit by lightning just to keep the damn car is insulting.

    I don't even see why the game had to have Marty as a playable character at all; they could have used Jules and Verne as the main antagonists, who have grown up with time travel and for whom there are excellent opportunities for development.
    Or the story could (should even) have branched out from our present time, and involved puzzles across time periods. Not just alternating between 1986 and 1931.

    So unless TTG actually wants to touch on the BTTF universe and make changes they shouldn't even think about a second season.
    But if they can make a good story that interacts with the BTTF world and involves time travel as a more central theme, then I'm interested.

    ok that whole post was complete bullshit. definatly disagree

  • @Michael J Fox is Canadian said: well folks remember that the entire trilogy was centered around Marty and his PIT (Point in time), doc and the delorean left and while not every scene involved marty, wherever he was, we were. From the beginning this was all about Marty.


    I can't believe theres so much love for Jules and Verne. You realize they were shown for about 30 seconds in the trilogy and neither had a line between them.

    although verne did give a memorial perverted look and hand gesture lol.

  • @ShadowX81 said: Id really like to see Marty stuck somehwere in time, and have to come up with some elaborate scheme to get back; like in movies 1 and 3. It was something that the whole film worked up to, and gave the plot a sense of urgency that Part 2 of the series lacked.

    agreed

  • @HoodedGinger said: ok that whole post was complete bullshit. definatly disagree

    I agree. Basically the poster is suggesting removing 2 of the 3 main characters from the trilogy (counting the delorean as a character) and forcing characters who had 30 seconds of screen time and no lines as the main ones. They clearly made this game as an animated sequel and did what Bob Gale would likely do if he ever did a part 4; Kept the 2 main characters and the time machine as well as follow Marty the entire time.

    @HoodedGinger said: dont think this could happen as the timeline always catches up with itself like the car you start of with in the game is a duplicate but when edna crashes into the prison and marty says what do we do with the car and doc says nothing the timeline catches up with itself. Although i could of read your comment wrong and this comment might not make sence. "the results of which could be catastrophic" lol

    Here's my theory on how the 3 Marty's happens; the current timeline would have 3 different docs in 1931; they're not there at the same time but there's evidence that Old Docs travels to 31 still happen during the FCB timeline so presumably they could have all gone to the same moment. A similar thing likely happens with Marty in the future. I believe that the 3 marty's did battle for around 100 years in the future. Each time one wins, the other 2 go back before the point of divergance. They keep going back and back up until the earliest point they can; right after the return from 1931 (they cant go further back without upsetting that trip).

  • What Caeska said about not having marty and the delorean is ridiculous, BTTF is the delorean and marty without either of them there would be no bttf I dont want to be a perverted kid who points to his uh... 'stuff' travelling around in a time travelling cart.

    The Delorean is almost a character, besides the explanation was great although it was a shame they could not make it some how be the real complete original delorean instead of a copy.

    Well it pretty much is the same DeLorean from the first 2 films. Yes it's not exactly the same as the third one but in that film it's only used twice and it doesn't fly.

    As I stated earlier, what Gale and co. needed to think when planning this game was 'if we were making a 4th film, what would it be about?' Clearly the fans would be far angrier if they went to a 4th film and saw no marty or delorean and coc pushed into the background than they would with the delorean back and a somewhat thin explanation for the DeLorean being there.
