Back to the Future revs to 88mph this Wednesday

If you want to pre-order Back to the Future: The Game, you’d better act fast – Marty and the Doc are headed to PCs (and Macs!) this Wednesday, December 22nd.

Telltale Games are still offering the critically acclaimed Puzzle Agent is still available as a pre-order bonus if you head to, and remember that $1 from each purchase (including pre-orders) will go directly to the Michael J. Fox Parkinson’s Foundation.

Best described as a blast from the past – and the future – Back to the Future: The Game brings Marty McFly, Doc Brown and the iconic DeLorean Time Machine back once more in an all-new adventure. The first episode starts everything off six months after the events of the third film, when the DeLorean mysteriously returns to Hill Valley. In order to avoid unravelling the space-time continuum, it’s up to Marty to go back in time and get some help from an even-younger Emmett Brown.

Bob Gale, co-creator and co-writer of the original trilogy is looking forward to this Wednesday:

“Telltale’s Back to the Future game is the first videogame in the space-time continuum to be truly worthy of being called ‘Back to the Future.’ This new adventure of Marty McFly and Doc Brown is true to the spirit of the movies and I couldn’t be happier about the great working relationship I’ve developed with the team at Telltale. Via the game, the player gets to explore and experience more about the history of our characters and Hill Valley… along with some very interesting alternate time lines. It’s a game for people who loved the movies, made by people who loved the movies.”

Dan Connors, CEO of Telltale Games, also has a big star around the day in his calendar:

“It’s a testament to the commitment and creative energy of our team that Telltale can deliver high-quality gaming experiences with such a timely schedule. And what a great way to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of this all time great franchise.”

The game will also be available with full voice and text translations for German fans, as well as French text localisations – and keep an eye out for further localised versions as they get closer to completion.

Back to the Future: The Game is launching simultaneously on PC and Mac, with a version for PS3 and even one for the iPad in the works, due in early 2011. You gotta go back!
