See Doc in 3-D! (re-updated)

25 Oct, 2010, 19:01 | Posted by: Jason | Source: GameTrailers
GameTrailers has just posted Part I of an exclusive and ongoing behind-the-scenes look at Telltale's Back to the Future games. Included are interviews with Bob Gale, Christopher Lloyd, Dennis Lenart and Julian Kwasneski. You'll also be able to catch a glimpse of Doc's character model while Lloyd records some dialog. I'll leave it to you guys to determine how well the "all natural overhaul" the Doc sprung for in the interim between the first two movies is holding up.

The video concludes with the following text: "Tune in to Spike TV December 2nd for the World Premiere Trailer!" A trailer in December would put the first episode's release a bit later than some of the more optimistic dates that people were speculating, but it's still pretty clear that EVEN THOSE OF US WITHOUT TIME MACHINES won't have long to wait to get these games.

And a reminder: For those of us in the US, the first of the two theatrical showings of Back to the Future in celebration of the 25th anniversary is tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. One other thing I'll slip in for its Telltale relevance is the fact that CSI: Fatal Conspiracy will be out this Tuesday, October 26th. We'll have a review up for it soon.

JP Update: Part 2 is up, and Marty's voice actor is revealed. Brave casting choice, Telltale.

JP Update 2: And now part 3 is up. See concept art for Young Doc and Einstein the dog and learn a few more details about what's in store.

What does everyone else think about this?

    PC/Mac/iPad and PSN = no multilanguage. :(



    I don't really know why the platforms would preclude mulitlanguge. Anyway Telltale now have a Localization Co-ordinator in Seher, so that's a good sign for other language versions...

    Wow, I figured Marty's voice would just sound like a guy.

    That sounds like fucking Marty, thats pretty awesome. Excitement for this game was already pretty high, now it just got bumped up a notch.

    Man... I am VERY impressed with that guy's Marty voice. I don't think anyone is going to complain about that choice!

    Brave because it's this guy's first professional voice-acting gig. And also because they already have James Arnold Taylor on the books.

    You can hear more on his showreel:

    I'm not sure what makes Telltale's casting choice for Marty "brave" in the wake of Fox's unavailability, but man, to call the spot-onness of that guy's impersonation "creepy" is an insult to things that make the skin crawl.

    I'm not completely sure about Doc's model yet (I would have to see more of the game I guess) but is so damn great to hear Doc again.

    Doc's animation, and especially his facial animation, is so...Telltale. The nod, especially. I dunno, they seem to have developed signature animation.
