I bet you thought BACK TO THE FUTURE-palooza was over with last month's 25th anniversary of the film and subsequent debut on Blu-ray. Well, you thought wrong, dude! We still have the upcoming video game to look forward to, complete with all new playable adventures of the Doc and Marty set six months after the events of BTTF III!

IGN released a few screenshots of the game from Telltale, which hits shelves next month for the Mac and PC with editions for the PlayStation 3 and even the iPad not far behind. Check out the stills, along with a few words from the game's co-designer Mike Stemmle after the break!

“The story in the game is completely new, set several months after the events of the third movie from Marty’s perspective. Of course, this is a story that involves time travel, so who knows where it’ll end up? We’re working with Bob Gale to make sure we’re delivering an authentic experience. There’ll be numerous recognizable elements of course – the Hill Valley town center, the clocktower, the DeLorean, Doc’s lab, and quite a bit more. And you’ll see them in ways you haven’t experienced before.” This is an adventure game, so you can expect to collects items here and there to solve puzzles and get characters to do things. As Stemmle states, “You’ll be primarily applying inventory to in-world characters and objects in the game. Marty’s not much of an ‘assemble three inventory items into a workable gadget’ kind of guy.”
