Telltale Games has carved out a niche in the game industry with episodic adventure games like Sam & Max and Tales of Monkey Island. Now the developer is taking its expertise to classic movie franchises.

The developer on Wednesday announced a multi-year game development deal with Universal Partnerships and Licensing to create episodic games based on the film franchises Jurassic Park and Back to the Future.

The first game, released as a "season" made up of several individually-released episodes, will be based on the Back to the Future films and will release this winter, Telltale said. Jurassic Park will follow "shortly," the company added.

San Rafael, CA-based Telltale said it has delivered over 5 million episodes across all major video game platforms, and sold 3.5 million episodes since 2005. LucasArts adventure game veterans founded the company in 2004.

The developer didn't specify which platforms the new film-based games would come to, but Telltale develops for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Wii, Mac and iPad. Telltale said the titles are in the works for "multiple" platforms.

Universal Pictures' Back to the Future and Jurassic Park film trilogies collectively grossed over $3 billion at the box office.

Telltale Games CEO Dan Connors said in a statement, "Our partnership with Universal is an exciting next step in our continued growth as a mass-market games publisher and developer."
