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!

    LOL. Cue Robin Williams "What year is it?" pic.

  • @Jennifer said: 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.

    well actually 2000 years ago, there was no recognition of the number 0 in the counting system at the time.

    There's other odd quirks to the calender in which doc may not have accounted for. For instance 10 days were skipped in the calendar in 1582.

    To get to the point, it's very unlikely that if Christ existed, he was born on december 25th and/or in the years 1BC, 0, or 1 AD. Also even if he was, the delorean could not travel across space so the only ways to 'witness' the birth of christ would be to travel back in time, build a boat and sail across the ocean, or transporting the delorean to israel and traveling back.

  • Lets try and get this back to a season 2 of Back to the future and not calenders and trying to figure out when Jesus was born hmmm... ;)

  • Well, it's not like there's much to say. We've been hoping for at least a mention of it, but all we have is Christopher Lloyd saying that he's supposed to be doing more.

    yeah encouraging but it's been a year and a half since the last episode was released and literally no news other than that.

    That's been Telltale's way since the February 2011 press announcement of five new games. That big announcement turned out to be a mistake since they planned to have them all out by the end of 2012, but the postponed release of Jurassic Park moved the completion date of Fables up to 2013.

    They've now become very tight lipped about future projects, even already announced ones. Fables was announced in February 2011, and then nothing was said about it except for a tweet saying they're making it around the time of the NY Comic Con last year and then a mention that they're now focusing on Fables in the last episode of Playing Dead.

    Actually, I meant it to be the exact opposite of that. Nothing against Christopher Lloyd, but most actors don't reveal these things unless and until they're actually contracted to make the appearance. And everything I've heard about his "slip-up" suggests that he was saying that he was certain that Telltale would make another game. Not that they are.

    I want another season of Back to the Future. I really do. But with Fables and King's Quest and Walking Dead Season 2 in the pipeline, I don't expect it to happen any time soon.

  • well its possable that develepment of the game could start by the end of this year or early next year judging on how long it is going to take them to finish there other games.

    It definitely is possible. They have 2 to 3 games in the pipeline now, and they typically release 2 or 3 games a year.

    However, Telltale is increasing their staff in the spring, so it's possible they'll be able to do more than 2 or 3 games a year after the influx of new staff.
