Tex Murphy Through Time
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Atlas U.S.A. and Big Finish Games have released a new timeline showing the history of the Tex Murphy game series leading up to the May 7 release of the next installment, Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure. The game is the first installment in the franchise since it was brought back to life in a successful Kickstarter campaign. Players will take the role of the private investigator in a post-apocalyptic San Francisco, once again searching for clues, solving puzzles, and investigating crimes.

So, a long time ago, and I mean a LONG time ago, before there was internet (and I'm talking dial-up internet here), before there was texting, before there were hybrid cars and cell phones that didn't look like giant bricks (unironically), there were streets. Mean Streets. And it ran on Commodore 64 and MS-DOS (if those words mean nothing to you, ask an old IT person what they are).

Click the image of the timeline to get the (spoiler-free) scoop on all the Tex Murphy titles from its humble beginnings in the old days of VGA graphics and 486 processors to the crisp 2k (twice as good as 1080p) FMV scenes from Tesla Effect.

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.

Tesla Effect is available to pre-order now for $19.99 (USD).

Paradox Reveals Runemaster Skald
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Paradox Interactive recently released a new dev diary for its upcoming Runemaster role-playing game based on Norse mythology. Players take the role of a champion and must explore procedurally generated maps and complete quests based on the six worlds of Norse myth, with each choice defining their champion. To succeed they will also need to recruit and command troops in tactical combat.

The Skald rely on the magic of their songs to inspire their troops, augment their skills, heal the wounded and strike terror into the heart of the enemy. Their songs are as old as the worlds, their poetry both beautiful and deadly at once. Music so powerful it can enslave the enemy or reinforce the strength of their allies.

The Human Skald wields a bow and is thus vulnerable to close combat. Preferring to hold a defensive position and support its troops from behind, the Human Skald concentrates on augmenting its own troops’ strengths and abilities.

The Darkelf Skald with its crossbow inspires its troops to greater feats, heals them when they are wounded and has a terrifying voice which brings darkness and despair into the enemies' hearts.

The Giant Skald is an ax-throwing defensive hero whose great strength makes them able to throw an ax faster and longer than most can shoot an arrow. A Giant’s terrible strength makes every bow or crossbow crumble in their hands, and so they have resorted to throwing axes instead.

The Lightelf Skald’s greatest strength is their voice, and the songs can enrage the enemy, strengthen their own troops and make the enemy flee in terror. Wielding a bow, the Lightelf Skald supports its troops from behind and holds a defensive position on the battlefield.

Learn more about the Skald hero class in the update linked below.
