Huge news, folks! Telltale Games has just announced that their next two episodic games will be based on none other than Back to the Future and Jurassic Park.
Yes, the folks behind Sam and Max, Tales
of Monkey Island
and a bunch of other
incredible adventure games are tackling their biggest licenses
Telltale has inked a deal with NBC Universal to create
games from both properties, which will be turned into the usual Telltale “season” of
episodic games, typically between four and six episodes released one a month. Back to the Future will hit this winter, with Jurassic Park hitting soon
Telltale CEO Dan Connors says: “Our partnership with Universal is an exciting next step in our continued growth as a mass-market games publisher and developer. We are all huge fans of both of these franchises. For Back to the Future and Jurassic Park we will leverage Telltale’s expertise in story-telling and game design to deliver on the unique elements of each series with our goal being to create compelling cinematic adventures paying homage to each franchise.”
“Telltale Games has succeeded in establishing a unique combination of digital and physical distribution models, and their reputation for quality production is well earned,” said Bill Kispert, Vice President and General Manger, Digital Platforms, Universal Partnerships & Licensing. “Telltale’s episodic story-telling is an ideal means by which to add compelling new content to these important franchises.”
