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!

  • @Michael J Fox is Canadian said: Sadly the hot tub time machine (which is a BTTF nod/spoof) already used that idea.

    It would be funny if they referenced it though.

    On a side note I actually don't know what your talking about lol.

    A 2010 comedy titled 'the hot tub time machine' is a loose spoof of BTTF:

    4 characters get sent back in time to 1986, one briefly stops his own conception, one plays a song from the future which hasn't been heard yet, Crispin glover plays the past and present versions of his character. At the end 3 of the characters get back to the future, 1 (named Lou) stays behind and when they return to the future they find he came up with the idea of google first but called it Loogle.

    They should call it Loogle so they don't have to pay money to mention their name. :P

  • 1 more thing if u think about it they never go to the future just present and past

    What do you mean by that? They traveled to 2015 in the second movie.

    [/QUOTE]He's talking about Hot Tub Time Machine, not Back to the Future.

  • How about a 2 second cameo from either Biill & Ted or Dr. Who?

  • @chenbaiwan said: Technically, he was in his 70's or 80's... but in his travels to the future, he went to a rejuvenation clinic and shaved about 20 years off of his body... thus having to put on an 'aged disguise' when returning to 1985 and peeling the disguise off again in 2015, revealing his 'rejuvenation treatment' to Marty.

    Same situation, age and body-wise is BttF3.

    By the time the game starts... Doc is in his 90's or 100's, Jules and Verne just entering college and Doc Brown's age beginning to show once again.

    No, the game seems to take place no longer than a year after the 3ed movie ended, so Doc wouldn;t be that much older.

    He has been living in the past for quite some time.
