Want to know a secret? I’m a hardcore Back to the Future fanatic. I get misty eyed when I so much as hear the theme music and can quote along with the movie. My desk has not one, but two Deloreans and my wall features a singed one sheet from the first movie. So yeah, I’m a fan.
Telltale Games, the same folks behind the upcoming Back to the Future game has just announced that Back to the Future: Blitz Through Time, a Bejeweled type puzzler with Back to the Future themes is now available to play for free on Facebook.
“By aligning a social gaming component with our upcoming launch of Back to the Future: The Game on various platforms, we will utilize the drawing power of social media to maximize the effectiveness of all our efforts with the franchise,” said Steve Allison, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Telltale Games. “This extension to our product launches is a decisive step in our growth strategy to establish closer connections to our consumers. Social gaming is also a great medium for breaking through competitive noise and the confusion of media fragmentation so that we can communicate directly with a focused, pre-qualified consumer.”
