Telltale Studios, makers of Puzzle Agent, said in a press release that their new adventure adaptation of the classic 80s film Back to the Future is coming to the iPad as well as PC/Mac and PS3.
Details are scarce for the moment, but it is known that the game is a point-and-click adventure being written with the help of Bob Gale, writer of the original movie trilogy. Also, the man himself, Christopher Lloyd, is reprising his role as the Doc, Dr. Emmet Brown. It is also confirmed that Michael J. Fox has given the rights to his appearance, although, disappointingly, he will not be voicing Marty. The role has been offered to the talented sound-alike A.J. LoCascio, who, seen in the video below, does a pretty impressive Marty McFly.
Telltale Games has taken the opportunity to, while the press is circling Back to the Future like vultures, offer the first episode of the downloadable series for the exciting price of free. Not a bad deal, but an even better one might be to jump on their early pre-order pricing of $24.95 for the entire series, which includes a free copy of their popular Puzzle Agent as well.
From Telltale Games:
Picking up shortly after the events of the third Back to the Future film, the game sees Marty and Doc embarking on a brand-new cinematic time travel adventure. The story is set to unfold across five exciting episodes, with a new instalment released each month. Telltale is creating the game in collaboration with Universal Partnership & Licensing and film series co-creator/co-writer Bob Gale. The games will release soon after the Blu-ray debut and DVD release of the Back to the Future 25th Anniversary Trilogy on October 26 2010, which feature all-new restorations of the classic films.
