Back to the Future Game Plans

An AP Entertainment article about Telltale Games confirms yesterday's indication of plans for an episodic Jurassic Park game, and adds that Telltale also plans to go back to the cinematic past to create a Back to the Future game, saying: "The as-yet-untitled Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PC and Mac games are set to be released this winter." These projects are part of a deal with Universal Studios. "'Jurassic Park' and 'Back to the Future' are two of our broadest and most beloved properties," said Bill Kispert, interactive vice president at Universal Studios. "We were very interested in bringing them into the interactive space, but they're not exactly the kind of properties that lend themselves to the stereotypical shoot-'em-up style of gameplay." Here's a bit more, quoting Telltale's Dan Connors:

Connors said the games, which are in the early stages of development, would tell new stories extending the "Back to the Future" and "Jurassic Park" lore. He teased that the "Back to the Future" games may include a DeLorean ride back to the 1970s while the "Jurassic Park" games would be intense and add new backstories to the series' man-versus-dinosaur mythology.

"The games are going to exist within these worlds," said Connors. "I wouldn't call these games sequels per se but a new interpretation of their worlds for a new medium. For one generation, it's an introduction to these series. For another generation, it's a thing they can look back on and something they can share warmly with their family and friends."

Jurassic Park I can see, but Back to the Future? I just cant see it as a video game.

I see it the other way round. Jurassic Park is just Dinosaurs, beyond that there is no real background. That leaves of course much room, but you wouldn't need the licence for this kind of game.

Back to the future on the other hand has great cult protagonists. Can't wait to see Doc Brown again.
