    Tex Murphy Project Fedora Here We Come

    We made it $450k pledged on kick starter for the new tex murphy game. It's been 14 years since the last installment that was overseer.

    I haven't pledged myself as I hadn't played any of the previous games but this campaign, and Chris Jones' awesome voice, has inspired me to change that. Halfway through Under a Killing Moon and, despite it being very dated looking, I am quite enjoying myself so far. I really like the in-built hint/walkthrough system and how it works with the points system; means I don't feel too cheap when I inevitably turn to it, my adventure game muscles are a little out of shape, because, hey, I earned those points!

    The Pandora Directive was the first adventure game i ever played and still my fav. Under a killing moon was so much ahead of it's time for FMV.

    Well, I've now finished Under A Killing Moon and despite some atrocious acting, wobbly pacing, ugly graphics (I'm not just talking about the tech here - the art direction is all over the place), wonky controls and far too many assemble-the-scraps-of-paper puzzles, I really, really enjoyed it. Much like Tex himself, it's just so goofy and loveable. The plot is keeps you hooked the way a pulpy bit of noir should and it was cool that generally the first thing you'd do when starting a new act would be to go to your usual informants (you quickly pick up on who is the right person to ask for particular info) much like your traditional gumshoe does. The FPP exploration and navigation works well, despite the aforementioned wonky controls & general ugliness, and makes scouring the areas for items and clues just a little bit more fun and immersive.

    Definitely picking up the other games in the series, which I assume improve upon this template, and I've now pledged $15 to the Kickstarter.

    Getting the earlier games of the series on GOG is definitely on my todo list. Look forward to playing them at some point.

    Looks like a TV show. With some hilarious acting. I don't remember the performances in the previous ones being this hammy... maybe it'll work? I'm kinda turned off by the makeup and set dressing going in hand with the ridiculous acting, I won't lie. Frame it with less talking heads, guys, gosh! Put some more budget into those backgrounds and pull back a bit, give the actors space to breathe.

    Also, I think Tex'd look better with some grain and more post-process on that film, digital makes stuff look cleaner, clearer, and unfortunately, more obviously low-budget.

    The hammy acting, the sets, the style...everything about it is exactly what you'd expect from a modern Tex Murphy game. I wouldn't change a thing.

    Hey, I'm replying to this thread because I couldn't find the other one, and this one was the first that the search brought up.

    So did you know did you know did you know? Tesla Effect has a demo out, and the game is set to arrive next week.

    It's pretty damn good in general. While I won't say the game does anything new, or pushes any technical boundaries (it looks like a game from 2006), it feels and plays just like the old Tex Murphy adventures. That's what I wanted, and, based on the demo, it seems like that's what I got.

    Awesome . Well that's exactly what you'd want to get.
