Possible BTTF Season 2 ideas/speculation/suggestion

posted by itssas83 on - last edited - Viewed by 21.4K 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!

  • If you want to check out a playthrough of BTTF season 1 as a refresher, come check out my playthrough of it on my new Let's Play Channel.

  • Season 2 Sorry... When?? wiil there be? please yes!

  • Good question!!!

    Season 1 debuted 3 years ago!! (just about anyway ! December 22nd, 2010 I believe) So it`s almost time for my anniversary playthrough :)

    But it seems Talltale have forgotten us BTTF fans and instead have gone all grim'n'gritty these days (Walking Dead , Wolf etc) I suppose dark , simple, challenge-free 'adventure' games sell more copies :p

    But I`m with you - bring back Chris Lloyd and Michael J! Bring back the FUN! Bring Back Back to the Future, Telltale - c'mon!!! :)

  • I concur, where is season 2?

  • As much as I absolutely LOVED the game, I gotta admit there probably won't be a part 2, mainly cause Telltale is moving on to other franchises and I feel the game is more than enough and they wrapped it up very nicely. Of course, the ending does leave room for a sequel (especially for the "To be continued" text, but that could have been just a nod to the movies) which, yeah, I'd love to see.

    One thing's for sure though: IF Telltale is ever gonna make a sequel, it won't be soon, seeing all the other games under development, and there's probably another huge bunch waiting in line.

  • Thread: Any chance of a second season?

    I know, it probably won't happen, but I'm still interested in seeing a second season of Back to the Future, especially if Telltale does the whole "this game becomes tailored to your choices" thing.

    I also think that a "tailored choice" Back to the Future would be interesting. The first season used a really easy version of Telltale's old point and click adventure gameplay back when they were trying to figure out how to make their games more casual, but the choice gameplay would fit the story they were trying to tell a lot better (especially the consequences from time travel).

    As for a Second Season, it initially seemed like they were teasing one from the end of Episode 5, but as of now it seems like Telltale's focus is on more dramatic series so I don't know if we will get a new Season for a while.

  • i would cry enjoyment, for some odd reason i love BTTF game

  • I actually think that the choice and consequence style would be great for Season 2 because of all of the different parallel timelines/universes opening up here.

  • The game was good but I wouldn't get your hopes up because they're working on the walking dead season 2, the wolf amoung us and they're also developing a game of thrones game and talles of the borderlands.
