Telltale is my favorite game company. BTTF is my favorite movie trilogy. Jurassic Park...well, I like the first movie and the theme park ride. :P

Seriously, I haven't geeked out this hard since Telltale got the Monkey Island license.

Just when I think Telltale has run out of licences I'm obsessed over to make into adventure games, they kick it up to 11.

I've enjoyed the Strong Bad games I've played, and the first two seasons of Sam & Max (Though Sam & Max on the Wii is glitchy as all hell) so I'll be interested to see what the come up with.  Never thought anyone would start making graphic adventure games like the good 'ol fashioned LucasArts classics, so I'm glad these guys are doing well.

BTTF Update: Christopher Lloyd is signed on as Doc, and Bob Gale is helping with the story! Woohoo!

Plus, concept art! It's...unique. I think I like it, but it'll take a little while to settle in.

That's pretty cool.  There are lots of franchises that would be great for graphic adventures.  I think the genre is seeing a come back and could easily see great games for lots of comedy franchises like the Simpsons, Futurama, Arrested Development (imagine an entire game where you run around the city trying to keep your idiot family out of trouble), and the IT Crowd.

This is awesome news.  If Biff is in this I sure hope that they can get Thomas Wilson back to do his voice.  That would put this over the top.   :D

As far as other games I'd like to see Telltale do I'd LOVE for them to do something based on The Tick cartoon show.  They could have a ton of fun with that.   :)
Imrahil: Don't care about Riding with Death.

Bob: Turkey.

Action Batch:  Woah, let's all mellow out and rap about this.

Behind the Scenes Goodness!

This AJ Locascio guy is amazing. He hits nuances that even I, the guy who watched the trilogy more times than he can count, forgot Fox's voice had.

Verrrry cool behind-the-scenes stuff!  The animation has me a tad worried, but that's mainly due to it still not being fully rendered.  Awesome to see Christopher Lloyd back in action, tho his voice sounds much older than prob what it should be (since it takes place 6 months after the third movie).  Still, you wouldn't want anyone else to do it.

Speaking of which, sad that Michael J. Fox isn't providing his voice... but that definitely solves the problem I just mentioned.  It's absolutely surreal to hear that guy's impression of him.  He looks like Jay Baruchel but with Michael J. Fox dubbing his voice!  Haha.  Looking forward to Part 3.  :)

EDIT: I just noticed this is going to be an episodic "digital release".  I'm assuming that means the only way you'll be able to get this is through downloading?  If so, then that's laaaaame.  I'd really love some in-my-hands BTTF artwork w/ case.

What Telltale tends to do is you subscribe to the season and get them as digital downloads as soon as they become available, then after all the episodes are out, they release a collector's DVD and send it to you for the price of shipping.

That guy's impression of Marty is pretty spot on.  I'm hoping they'll release these to XBLA at some point.

He's got a little demo acting reel on Youtube.  I'd embed it, but for some reason none of the buttons are working for me there today:

Good Jack Sparrow at the end, too.

I will get the BTTF one if and only if they have a segment at the end of the 3rd part where you get to push the DeLorean with the train to 88 mph. I don't care if it's just holding a key down, it'll still be awesome.

I don't know if you actually watched the first video but this game takes place shortly after the events of BTTF 3.  So, I wouldn't count on that.
