Great Scott !

You might have remebered my old Dream Game post on a Back To The Future Video Game. Well turns out Telltale Games has signed a deal to create new episodic releases based on  NBC Universal properties, the first of which will be a Jurassic Park game. Heres the best
  part, Telltale revealed that one of the other properties they will be digging into is the Back to the Future series.

 Universal Studios interactive vice president commented that properties like Jurassic Park and Back to the Future "(don't) lend themselves to the stereotypical shoot-’em-up style of gameplay." I guess that means the games will follow Telltale's usual point and click adventure game format.

Telltale CEO Dan Connors explains how the games will tie in to the properties that they're based on:

"The games are going to exist within these worlds. 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."According to Develop's report, the first Back to the Future game episodes will be available for download this winter on the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PC, and Mac. I've also heard that the first Jurassic Park episode is coming before the end of the year, so get ready for the return of classic films turned into episodic games. I hope more of my Dream Games come true.
