Get the first episode of Telltale's Back to the Future: The Game for free

We're super grateful for Telltale, who have created, albeit not single-handedly, a new renaissance in adventure games. After proving themselves with several seasons of Sam & Max, as well as a Monkey Island revival, the company is gearing up to promote their new Back to the Future pseudo-sequel game by giving it away (at least part of it).

Over at Telltale's site, adventure game and BttF fans can sign up to receive the first episode of Back to the Future: The Game for free. Telltale are one of the few developers to do episodic content right, and they typically release a single game over the course of several months. Each “whole-game” is called a season, and is later sold as a package.

If you're still debating whether it's worth the time to revisit the world of gigawatts and flux capacitors, you can check out these “making of” videos. They offer a cool look at the development of the game (if you can ignore the Telltale staff reading off teleprompters, trying to act like they're speaking off the cuff.)

    Found out that you have to include the code: '121GIGAWATTS' taken from the blu-ray movie. After you put that code in, the game will be free.

    hrm... *rubs chin dubiously* i don't think this is 100% correct. i think the free game is a bonus game you get when you buy BTTF but still, i had forgotten about the game, so i'm glad this went up.
  • CH3BURASHKA - October 27, 2010 3:37 a.m.

    Got it!

    This looks fuckin' sweet!! Being a huge back to the Future fan...I will be in heaven playing this.
  • grappler51 - October 27, 2010 3:15 a.m.

    I can't figure out how to get it! I made a telltale account, but it doesn't say anything about getting episode 1 for free!

    no man of heterosexual type should ever use this word, but. i'm seriously fucking giddy for this. i feel like a child waiting for Saturday morning cartoons to come on at 5 in the morning. this has made me happier. and i'm very impressed with the Marty impersonator.

  • smashpro1 - October 27, 2010 1:23 a.m.

    Well, the first episode should hold me over until the whole season is out.
  • festerblatz82 - October 27, 2010 1:13 a.m.
