Great Scott! Back to the Future launches December 22nd on PC and Mac. Also, we really hate manure

This is indeed heavy. Just as we were beginning to worry that Telltale’s pre-Xmas release date for Back to the Future might slip until after the holidays, old Chris Cringle, or more likely Emmet Brown, delivers some seasonal cheer. Yup, the first of the episodic BTTF chapters will launch on PC and Mac next week.

And just like finding a certain almanac that can predict every sporting event for the next 50 years, there’s yet more good news. People who buy or pre-order the game from Telltale's online shop on the day of release will receive a collector’s DVD, which be published after all the episodes have come out. If you pre-order through its site, you’ll also nab yourself a free copy of Puzzle Agent.

Above: Admittedly, Puzzle Agent isn't great. But it's better than a free kick in the crotch

Now that surely that’s far better than having a mouthful of horse shit?

Above: Mad Dog agrees

No word on when the first episode will launch on PSN, so lets keep those flux capacitors crossed it's soon.

    I'm glad they're not sticking with the 1998 graphics of Sam & Max and are actually putting some rendering power behind BttF.

    "the first of the episodic BTTF chapters will launch on PSN and Mac next week." Please, tell me that's not a typo!

    From what I've seen on the Telltale site, there are 5 episodes, all of which you can purchase seperately. Looks like the pre-order gives you the best deal. Also looks like the current vendors are D2D and Telltale, but I hope Steam gets involved. I wonder though how long each episode is...I hope there is a lot of content. Tried to get into the forums but timed out connection wise, will try to dig up more info later.

    Any chances of a world-exclusive Huey Lewis and the News song to premiere in the game?

    I see this is coming to ps3 as well. Any chance of a later release on 360?

    Nice, thanks. As long as Marty isn't chucking bowling balls down the street while dodging movers with glass, bees, manholes, park benches, all the while collecting clocks, I think I'll be happy.

    @VMPSaberwolf Sadly not. But Telltale has a more than decent pedigree and it looks like its being incredibly respectful of the source material. So we're hopeful this is going to be the sheeeeeit.

    I forgot to ask, has anyone in the GR been able to play or preview this? I know it's not a major title so I figured not, but can't hurt to ask.

    I did not expect this so soon, I just found out about the trailer a few weeks ago. I hope it's not a half baked product.
