The next installment of Back to the Future: The Game will hit next week, according to developer Telltale's latest newsletter. Episode 3: Citizen Brown will come to the PC and Mac, promising to unravel a new mystery. Apparently mucking around in time has altered Doc Brown, so Marty has to grab his gigawatts and solve the problem.

Next Tuesday, March 29, will see Episode 2 (Get Tannen) launch on the PlayStation 3 as well. As with the PC and Mac versions, buying the full game package lets you download the individual episodes as they release. Finally, Telltale also promised European PSN and iPad launch dates for Episode 2 are "coming soon."

      I was hoping episode 2 would fix some of my issues with the first one but it's more of the same. This just seems really rushed. Some of the puzzles aren't well thought out and there are still weird bugs (when Doc is on the roof at the end of episode 2 you can start a scene where he's all of a sudden on the ground).

      The overall story is alright though and I'm having fun with it. I just hope Jurassic Park turns out better.

        There does feel to be some lack of quality control when it comes to things like this - but they are staying very true to the spirit of the films, and the casual gamer (the "casual casual gamer"?) is not going to complain about such things as long as the game doesn't crash and its in enjoyable.

          I'm just under the impression that TellTale are just a really small company, and they stick to their deadlines, so shit sometimes gets through. I mean, they are about the only games company I know that's stuck to their episodic guns.

      Meh...I'm waiting for the Steam holiday sale...hopefully the entire series will be heavily discounted.

        To be fair, it's already $10 cheaper than other recent seasons, $5 less than older ones. That at least helps to make up for the brevity of each episode. Though hey, who can argue with a deep discount?

      Hoorays! I thought the 2nd episode was really a lot of fun. Sure it's no mustache from a cat but it's still a fun adventure game.
