After being successfully kickstarted way back in 2012, Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure is finally back after a 16 year hiatus and a recent last minute two week delay to bring you the return of the FMV neo-noir detective.
Tex Murphy is the last of the hard-boiled private detectives living in dystopian post-World War III San Francisco in the year 2050. Tex is an honest and good-natured private investigator with a penchant for bourbon, cigarettes, and getting himself into trouble.
Tesla Effect is a mystery 3D adventure game seamlessly blended with the Tex Murphy franchise's renowned full-motion video (FMV) scenes with real actors such as June Lockhart, Larry Jones (Soup Nazi) and Kevin Murphy (Mystery Science Theater 3000). You'll need all your wits about you and a lot of help from Tex's more competent companions to get to the game's 5 different endings. Of course, that's only if you survive long enough to not get your head blown off by C4 chewing gum.
The game is available Windows and OS X, and can be purchased at a price tag of $19.99 through GoG.com
