Possible BTTF Season 2 ideas/speculation/suggestion

posted by itssas83 on - last edited - Viewed by 18.2K 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!

  • It would be fun to see them end up in Colonial America, in the early 1700s.

  • One important thing which has been brought up is the family connection; the McFly's did not move to hill Valley until the 19th century (remember William is the first born in America). As well the spacial travel. Now doc did say in episode 1 he added a few bells and whistles to the delorean. Aside from the automatic retrieval, we hadn't seen any differences.

  • I don't know if this has been mentioned or not, but something I'd like in a potential season 2 is a slightly higher music budget.

    Well, there were also the calibration devices that Citizen Brown used and the satellite that Doc used to sync up the calibration units with the paradoxal DeLorean. Although, I suppose he could have always had those. We never got to see Doc tinker with the DeLorean outside of the limitations of the past in the films.

  • So, uh, including the films, how many different timelines are there now?

  • Here's all the ones we definitely have physical proof of occurring in one form or another. I'm pretty sure I got them all, but if I missed any let me know.

    A - Original timeline (George is a loser)
    B - Marty goes to 1955 (George is a winner)
    C - Doc returns to 1985 for Marty and Jennifer [Transition between Parts I and II]
    D - Biff goes back to 1985 (1985-A)
    E - Doc, Marty, Jennifer and Einstein return to 1985 (1985-A)
    F - Doc and Marty return to 1955
    G - Doc is sent to 1885 (Lightning strike) [Transition between Parts II and III]
    H - Marty goes to 1885
    I - Doc returns to 1985 from the future in the Jules Verne Train
    J - Doc jumps to an unknown time in the past in the flying Train
    K - Doc returns to an unknown time after finding the Temporal Duplicate DeLorean in 2025
    L - Marty travels back to June 13, 1931 (Doc is in jail, Arthur gets murdered) [Start of the Game]
    M - Marty returns to 1931 (Arthur is alive, Kid isn't in jail)
    N - Marty and Doc jump back to August 25, 1931 (Kid goes to jail)
    O - Marty and First Citizen Brown arrive on October 12, 1931
    P - Citizen Brown tests the time circuits
    Q - Citizen Brown tests the time circuits
    R - Citizen Brown tests the time circuits
    S - Alternate Doc arrives in 1931 to pseudo pick up Marty
    T - Edna attempts to evade Danny Parker and accidentally jumps back to 1876 (Hill Valley vanishes)
    U - Doc and Marty chase Edna back to 1876 and prevent Hill Valley from burning down, Edna is sent to prison, Doc takes up a part time residence in 1986.

    (Depending on the universe)
    V - Future Alternate Marty #1 arrives
    W - Future Alternate Marty #2 arrives
    X - Future Alternate Marty #3 arrives

  • Telltale,

    Why not make future episodes of the Back to the Future game "a different timeline" for the same episode themes as the 1st series. In other words, start the game, at the same point, somewhere in one of the original episodes, and then have all different circumstances and objectives happen along the way, to get back to the same point as somewhere in one of the original games.. That would be really cool,... and Telltale ... you could use a lot of stuff, already done, and incorporate them, ....maybe some background scenes and characters from the original 5 games ... into the new series of games. Makes sense dollar wise.... don't ya think? :)

  • yet in the first film the doc says he/marty could travel back to the birth of christ or some other time way before the delorean existed ?

    just as the doc starts to talk about the car before the lybians/libiyans turn up

  • I'm not sure what you mean. The DeLorean could go back to 0000, but would still stay in Hill Valley. It's not like just because Doc typed 12/25/0000 into the Time Circuits that the DeLorean would suddenly end up wherever Christ was born at.
