Great Scott!!! First Image of “Back to the Future” for PSN

Christopher Lloyd is back to provide his voice (too bad about Michael J Fox) with the original screenplay writer from the three movies to bring this potentially EPIC game to PSN!

This game could go either way with me…very bad or very good. If the artwork is any indication to how the game will play, I think we are all in for a treat.

t’s about time, McFly. A video game based on the Back to the Future movies is in the works.

Being developed by Telltale Games, the Back to the Future game series will include the likenesses of Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, who portrayed the characters Marty McFly and Doc Brown in the films, which listed Steven Spielberg among the executive producers. (Lloyd will also provide his voice for the games.)

Bob Gale, who wrote the screenplays for the three films, is working with the game developers on the plot for the planned five “episodes”. Telltale’s recent releases include a series of Sam & Max games available for download on Xbox Live, the PlayStation Network and for computers at

As for the storyline, Telltale would confirm that the games would include an appearance of the DeLorean time machine and, the fictional California setting of Hill Valley. The time periods covered will include 1985 and additional characters from the movies will crop up in the game.

    Eddie I agree with you, if the art is any indication the game will probably be pretty good.

    Sweet! I hope this is not one of those top down views like the current PSN titles now available. I would totally lose interest if that was the case.

    I think it’s going to be like Sam & Max and Tales of Monkey Island.

    Too bad Michael J Fox isn’t lending his voice too but this looks like it’ll be one sweet game. 🙂

    Since they couldn’t get Michael J Fox maybe they can get Eric Stoltz…

    if anyone gets this I might be willing to donate some points. 🙂

    SicSemperTyranis: I get it.

    Eric Stoltz was originally cast as Marty McFly. 🙂

    SonicBoom is that a reference to the AVGN Back to the Future review?

    Wow.. just watched all three of these with my kids on this vacation. So a perfect time to release it for my son and I lol.. First time they ever saw them and it brought back alot of memories for me. My father owned a Delorian and I got to drive it a few times b4 he got rid of it. Hope it’s good.
