Season 2 of the JRT Show builds up to full flux capacity, as we take a look at Back to the Future: The Game: Episodes 1 through 3 and Telltale Games in general.
A review featuring hoverboards, gigawatts and branching timelines.
This video comes as a surprise to me as well, as it seems to somehow include additional commentary on Episodes 2 & 3. I don’t know if I am sleepwalking/acting/editing, but I don’t remember shooting a lot of these scenes and I think there are a couple of edits I asked Adobe Premiere to do differently. I guess they magically came out better? Strange.
Anyway, the review has footage from Episode 2 and my thoughts on it, even though I don’t recall actually playing it, and even from Episode 3, which isn’t even out yet! This doesn’t seem physically possible, but I also have this gut feeling telling me that it is somehow legit.
Even with all that extra content, there is still one thing I manage not to mention: I’ve always dreamed of making a Back to the Future videogame.
I’ve thought long about the genre it would actually belong in, and I feel “Point & Click Adventure” is a pretty good call. It plays to most of the franchise’s and, in this case, Telltale’s, strengths, and the fact that it has to completely ignore a few of the films’ trademarks just means that I can still dream of someday making the definitive adaptation.
So, I got a weird email today, apparently sent by myself, containing the version of the review that I actually remember asking Premiere to compile back in February. Congrats, Adobe, this has to be the strangest bug I’ve ever seen.
Anyway, this one is quite bit shorter as it doesn’t have the mysterious extra footage the version above has, which covered Episodes 2 & 3. There are also some other changes, feel free to compare and contrast:
By the way, I’ve been short on time lately, so I haven’t played “Citizen Brown” yet. I will do so as soon as possible though, as I am curious to find if my predictions were terribly wrong or beautifully right.
Guess what gang: I got hit up with another weird version of the review! This one comes off as some sort of in-between version of the two found above, not mentioning any gameplay from Episode 3 but still containing more material than I actually remember capturing three months ago.
I guess it only covers Episodes 1 & 2? This is starting to look less like a glitch and more like an elaborate prank. Judge for yourselves:
Hm… There’s something odd about the gallery too:
