I was really excited about the new Telltale game, so I decided to make this...
It's kind of Sam & Max / Day of the Tentacle-ish style, as all good old adventure games was.

Hope you enjoy.


Original game Artwork used as refference.

It could easily be a point-and-click game!

It really looks like DOTT, great result!

Love this, youve really done justice to the delorean

{ Whoa, no sure if it inspired them, but this would be great!
   I didn't play episode 3 yet, but I'll check it out! :)

KittenMaster (Level 4 Deputy) @ 3/31/2011 01:57

Interestingly enough, and sort of spoilers, but Telltale actually put a scene and puzzle in the game similar to this scene.  Maybe they were inspired by your work?

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 12/19/2010 17:13

Brilliant! I love this piece, Jinn.

Mallonee (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 12/17/2010 12:02

well, I love it! I think it looks epic :) I absolutely love this style!

Buddy90 (Level 6 Manager) @ 12/16/2010 21:19

My only thing is that the doc, marty, and the cat don't look nearly as beautiful as everything else, so they stand out in a nonpleasant way.

The car is beautiful btw, and so is the brick wall.

Jinn (Level 11 Cthulhu (The Call of Cthulhu)) @ 12/16/2010 12:17

{ I kinda agree about the car, but I would need to start over. And that's no point to do this, imo, since it will not be a real game...
   I also tryed some shapes behind the doc's head, and none seem to work fine.

  About the amount of pixels, I just tried to follow the original concept art from Telltale, and with less detail it loses the resemblance... May you show/sugest something?

  And about the foreground brushes, I'll try some other collors. ;)

  Oh, and with the bricks, they were intended to be musty/moldy.

  Anyway, thanks a lot for the critics! I'm really glad that you like it beside the problems.

big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 12/16/2010 09:43

Very nice replication of the classic style! Those games used indexed artwork as backgrounds, but it's interesting seeing that imitated with pixels. I do have a few minor crits:

-The car itself looks a bit stiff. It might fit better if you loosened up the lines a little bit so it followed the curve of the road more.

- I would put a slightly warped rectangle (with drop shadow) behind Dr. Brown's head to distinguish it as part of the GUI.

- I would reduce the amount of pixel detailing on the faces of Marty and the Doc. Keep it simple. I would also darken the Doc's eyebrows so the color isn't as close to the white shade you used for his eyes.

- I would shift the highlights on the foreground bush to make them cooler (purple, blue, or blue-green) to help it recede instead of competing for attention.

- The two green bricks look a little out of place. Non-contiguous fill error?

Great work!

Morgengrauen (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 12/15/2010 16:05

you changed his face a little bit, right? i think it's better. but the nose bugs me a bit. the shadow is very dark, and at 2x it looks like a dog snout or so. maybe the shadow just draws too much attention. i guess the nose is not so important for his recognition.

Popvid (Level 1 Private) @ 12/14/2010 19:06

Oh man, I wanna play this right now.

That's why I don't like mock ups, lol.

Jinn (Level 11 Cthulhu (The Call of Cthulhu)) @ 12/14/2010 18:47

{ You know what... I think the same about Marty! Do you think is it better now?

Paulo Peres (Level 6 SWAT) @ 12/14/2010 17:39

wow... so impressive... as usual!

Morgengrauen (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 12/14/2010 17:01

omg omg omg awesome!

love the cat and Doc's head. Marty looks a little bit too young i think. the environment is gorgeous!

TortBR (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 12/14/2010 16:50

 Eu amo esse filme

Jinn (Level 11 Cthulhu (The Call of Cthulhu)) @ 12/14/2010 16:26

Lucegydio (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/14/2010 16:20
