Possible BTTF Season 2 ideas/speculation/suggestion

posted by itssas83 on - last edited - Viewed by 11.1K 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!

    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)

    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



    You forgot the timeline where Marty first finds out about Doc being in 1931 where Doc is murdered by Kid and Arthur is alive.

    I'm a huge BttF nut, but that would be WAY too much BttF.

    You are absolutely right. I most certainly did.

  • @hscitpe said: You are absolutely right. I most certainly did.



    You also missed First Citizen Doc's jump back to May 14, 1986 to pick Marty up.

  • Thanks for making me look stupid, Carlos.

  • When they first announced a Back to the Future game I wanted a Sam and Max season 2 episode 4 kind of game where you had around 5 different time periods and you had to work with to get items and change time

  • For the love of god please make another BTTF game! And I can't believe nobody's thought about taking Marty and Doc... Back to the FUTURE!!

  • @Jennifer said: Ha, that actually flew right over my head. You're right that the modern calendar starts at 1 AD. ...



    Looks like you live in the wrong century.
    The modern calendar as defined in ISO 8601 does have the year 0 (which incidentally is what people stuck in the distant past would call 1 BC.)



    Of course that ISO standard is from 1988, so a point could be made that Doc couldn't have known about it.

    But since that is the only form of a calendar that coincidences with modern dates and allows to give a date to any day in the history, he might have been an early adopter.
    (Especially as all you have to do is not implementing special handling for calendar changes)

    Well considering we're talking about 1986, it would have been the "modern" calendar then. :p

    But in all seriousness, I didn't know about that. I thought we still used the Gregorian calendar. Interesting.

    It's weird that most of my school years took place in the 1990's and none of my teachers ever mentioned that the BC and AD calendar system that was in all of the history textbooks was outdated.

    As for Doc's 0000-9999 calendar system in the DeLorean, you're right, Doc does seem like the kind of person who would be an early adopter of a new system like that.
