Tex Murphy Through Time

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).
