Michael J. Fox is Back (to the Future)

Michael J. Fox allowed his likeness to be used for TellTale Games’ Back to the Future series, and AJ LoCascio did a great job of capturing the spirit of Marty McFly. But now according to the developer’s website Fox is going to make a return for the final episode in the series titled ‘OUTATIME!’. Michael won’t be playing the role of Marty McFly since this is already taken, rather he will be making a cameo as an (as of yet) unannounced character.

You can purchase all 5 episodes now for only $19.99 until June 23rd. Check out the embedded teaser trailer above.

Back to the Future ep. 1 free to download

Great Scott! The folks over at Telltale Games have now made the first episode of the Back to the Future game series free to download for everyone.

After trying out the first episode you can order the remaining 4 for $22.49. All you need to do is register for a Telltale account, that’s it.

From the press release:

We know it’s April Fool’s Day and all, but this is for real. We’ve made the first episode of the continued adventures of Marty McFly and Doc Brown, Back to the Future: The Game – Episode 1: It’s About Time, totally free for all in a proverbial well…free-for-all!

The PC and Mac adventure game is based on the hit Robert Zemeckis trilogy. Bob Gale, the original screenwriter was brought on board for the story and Christopher Loyd (aka Doc Brown) lends his voice as the whacky professor.

Although Michael J. Fox’s real voice isn’t in the game, he did give permission to use his likeness and the developers managed to track down AJ Locascio; a life-long Back to the Future fan who sounds a hell of a lot like Fox.
