Some of you may be BACK TO THE FUTURE'd out with all the recent resurgence of the film due to its 25th anniversary and subsequent release on Blu-ray. But not I! No sir, I say bring it on like the wrath of Kahn! So, if you're like me (i.e. you love BACK TO THE FUTURE and you love the idea of getting to play the adventures of Doc and Marty), then the following video should make your day, if it wasn't already made by the fact that the film is finally out on Blu-ray!

The heavy duty dudes over at GameTrailers.com debuted a "Behind The Scenes" featurette on Telltale Games upcoming interactive adventure based on the time travelin' trilogy. The game stars the voice talents of Doc himself, Christopher Lloyd, and takes place a few months after the events of BACK TO THE FUTURE: PART III when Marty is all by his lonesome due to Dr. Brown's absence (if you recall, he choo-choo-choo'd off into the sunset in a time traveling train at the end of the film). That is until the time traveling teen's density comes a calling and he has to locate his old friend whose missing in time.

Check out the three-part feature after the break, which gives us a look at the game's development and building process, Christopher Lloyd's voice work, trilogy screenwriter/co-creator Bob Gale's involvement as a consultant, and A.J. LoCascio as the voice of Marty McFly. Now before you go off and act like someone called you a chicken, give the kid a chance. Because when you hear his uncanny likeness to Mr. Michael J. Fox, it'll stun you like you just saw Darth Vader from the planet Vulcan in your bedroom.

I cannot wait to get my hands on this game! The sharp-edged, cartoonish style is beautiful and the idea of getting to play a BACK TO THE FUTURE adventure - a brand new one at that which is said to take you places like Doc Brown's teenage years - is more exciting than words can describe! Luckily, it is slated for release this winter and is expected to be available on all major platforms so everyone will have their chance sooner than you can say "Great Scott!"
