It's About Time! is the first out of five episodes of Back to the Future: The Game.

The year is 1986, and Doc has been missing for a long time by now. Because of all the debts he was having, the city decided to build a parking garage at the place of his house, selling all stuff from it along the way. Marty McFly is trying to save things precious to him, but suddenly the time-traveling car DeLorean appears out of nowhere with the Doc's cry for help! It appears that Doc is stranded in the year 1931, where he was arrested for setting a speakeasy on fire. Marty must travel to the past and rescue his friend before he gets lynched by furious mob.

The adventure game features third-person view with real-time 3D graphics and pre-defined fixed, pivoting or scrolling camera settings. While interaction is performed in classic point-and-click style, the player has to move Marty by direction keys or dragging the character with the mouse. Puzzles are predominantly inventory-based; certain tasks can also be solved by gathering information and selecting the correct dialogue choices.
