New Tex Murphy: Tesla Effect Trailer Unveiled
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Big Finish Games has released a second trailer for Tesla Effect. The game is the first installment in the Tex Murphy adventure game series 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.

Tex Murphy is the last of the hard-boiled gumshoe detectives living in dystopian post-World War III San Francisco in the 2040s. Tex is an honest and good-natured private investigator with a penchant for bourbon, cigarettes and getting himself into trouble. He runs his P.I. (and dance instructor) business from his apartment/office on the top floor of the Ritz Hotel, located on Chandler Avenue in Old San Francisco. In stark contrast to the sparkling, futuristic New San Francisco, Old San Francisco is a run-down part of town known for its high concentration of Mutants a section of the population disfigured by post-war nuclear fallout. Tex has found several friends and allies among the Mutants on Chandler Avenue. His talents as a detective are matched only by his knack for putting his foot in his mouth and bumbling his way into the path of danger. However, using his wits, creativity and a bit of luck, Tex has managed to save the world on several occasions.

Tex Murphy first appeared in the game Mean Streets in 1989. Developer Access Software broke new ground with gaming technology, followed shortly afterwards by Martian Memorandum in 1991. In 1994, Tex Murphy had a profound effect on the computer gaming industry with the release of Under a Killing Moon. Dubbed an "Interactive Movie," the multi-award winning Under a Killing Moon was a trailblazing accomplishment, introducing full motion video and real actors into a game environment. Access Software's proprietary "Virtual World" engine also enabled full freedom of movement in a completely explorable 3D world. This same groundbreaking technology would be used in 1996's The Pandora Directive. Another multi-award winner, The Pandora Directive is often regarded as one of the finest adventure games of all time. In 1998, Overseer was the last title released featuring our favorite gumshoe detective...until now!

Thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, Tex is back and ready for his next big adventure: Tesla Effect. Building on a history of over 20 years of pioneering game design, Tesla Effect is set to redefine expectations of what is possible in a game. By taking full advantage of technological advancements in both gaming and film production, Tesla Effect will deliver a truly cinematic gaming experience that will leave you speechless.
