    Back to the Future: The Game is game based on the Back to the
    Future Films, and produced by Telltale Games. The game picks up a few months
    after the end of the third film, and tells the story of Marty McFly and Doc
    Brown as they set off on another adventure.
    The game is an adventure game, and is being released episodically like Telltale
    Games' other titles.
    For reference, EXAMINE means to click something that the player can interact
    with, and is not the examine item function in Marty's inventory.
    This guide only follows the actions needed to complete the game, I highly
    recommend exploring all of the other dialogue options available.
