Back to the Future approaching PC & Mac at 88mph

Earlier this year, Telltale Games – who have already successfully brought us modern spins on the Monkey Island and Sam & Max games – announced that they had grabbed the Jurassic Park and Back to the Future movie licenses. Now, you can preorder the latter online.

Digital preorders for both PC and Mac versions of Back to the Future have gone live at www.backtothefuturegame.com for $24.95 (that’s about £16 to us British folk). Not only will you get all BttF episodes for that price (with the first being released some time in December), but Telltale are also throwing Puzzle Agent into the deal, which would normally set you back $9.95, and you’ll get access to the exclusive ‘insider forum’ (where it’s promised you’ll be able to “chat with the team creating the game throughout the process”).

Perhaps best of all, for every one of these preorders placed directly with them, Telltale will donate $1 to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. That’s an impressive preorder package, especially for such a relatively low price. It has not been announced which, if any, of these preorder incentives will apply to the PS3 and (sigh) iPad versions when they become available later in the year.

    Uhh – Oh! I’ve been waiting a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time for a BttF game, this had better not suck!!!

    It will be interesting to see if they strictly follow the adventure game template, that they’ve used so succesfully with the Monkey Island reboot, or whether they will go down a more action orientated route. Hoverboards anyone?

    Hoverboards are SOOO cool! So cool infact, that after seeing BttF2 I went straight outside and pulled the wheels off my brother’s skateboard and plonked it on a couple of bricks!!!

    Ah, my imagination; where did you go?
