Back to the Future — the movie that brought us flux capacitors and temporal incest — is celebrating its 25th anniversary this week with cast reunions, theatrical viewings, new DVD and Blu-ray editions and the recent release of a card game from the makers of Fluxx.
As reported here previously, there’s also a video game in the works from Telltale Games starring the voice talent of Doc Brown himself, Christopher Lloyd. Now we know the platform for the game: PC and Mac versions arrive in December for $24.95, followed shortly thereafter by versions for PlayStation 3 and iPad (dates and pricing not available).

Picking up shortly after the events of the third Back to the Future film, Marty and Doc embark on a completely new cinematic time-travel adventure. The story unfolds across five exciting episodes, with a new installment releasing each month. Telltale is creating the game in collaboration with Universal Partnerships & Licensing and film series’ co-creator/co-writer Bob Gale. The games will release soon after the Blu-ray debut and DVD release of the Back to the Future 25th Anniversary Trilogy on October 26, featuring all-new restorations of the classic films.
“We’re very excited to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Back to the Future franchise with a completely new adventure,” said Dan Connors CEO Telltale Games. “It’s been an amazing experience to be part of reuniting Marty McFly and Doc Brown on their continuing quest. Back to the Future fans will have a great time helping to control the integrity of the space-time continuum.”
