Telltale Games get ready to go Back to the Future

Telltale Games have just announced another reason why you should pick up a copy of Back to the Future - $1 from each PC and Mac series pre-order on will be donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.

That's not all though - if the charity-related warm fuzzies aren't enough, you'll also get a copy of Telltale's critically-acclaimed Puzzle Agent absolutely free immediately after you place your pre-order (a saving of $9.95).

There's also a pre-release insider forum over at Telltale's website, where you lucky pre-orderers will be able to chat with the game's developers while they're actually working on the game. Something to gloat about? I think so!

...while everybody might be focussing on the PC and Mac versions of the game (due in December, yay!), the game's also headed to both PlayStation 3 and - wait for it - iPad.

Back to the Future

We gotta go back!

Now - the game itself. It picks up the story soon after the third Back to the Future film (that's the one where they ended up in the Wild West), as Marty and Doc take on an all-new adventure which unfolds over five monthly episodes.

More than just a licensed title, Back to the Future: The Videogame is being developed in collaboration with Universal Partnerships & Licensing, as well as the original trilogy's co-creator/co-writer Bob Gale.

CEO of Telltale Games, Dan Connors, is very pleased with what's in store:

"We're very excited to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Back to the Future franchise with a completely new adventure!

It's been an amazing experience to be part of reuniting Marty McFly and Doc Brown on their continuing quest. Back to the Future fans will have a great time helping to control the integrity of the space-time continuum."

The game's official website has just launched, boasting concept art and all sorts of developer insights - including some special behind-the-scenes videos featuring Bob Gale and Christopher Lloyd, and introducing A.J. Locascio - the new voice of Marty McFly.
