happydanceBlack Friday sale at GOG!

I just got 3 Tex Murphy games for $2.99 each.
If anyone still exists on the planet who has not played these great "tounnge-in-cheek" film noir type games with down-in-the-heels post appocalypse detective Tex M. now's your chance.

I sold all my boxed games because new computer cant play them but thanks to wonderful DRM free GOG I can finally enjoy them again yay

I just got my first Tex Murphy from GOG. Wow! Great game. I never could find them in boxes. Well worth the wait. Can't hardly wait for the next one to down load.

With the exception of Mean Streets and Martian Memorandum which I only have through GOG, I have ALL the Tex games (and books) in multiples, original versions, replacement versions, and gog versions. I am a certified Tex nut, but I can hold off getting anything new (except maybe the novelization of a 'Tesla' book). I would scarf that up so fast, if there was one...

FYI - News from Big Finish:

Quote:
Good news! Our friends at GOG.com have released an updated version 'Overseer' that now includes the higher-quality DVD version of all video sequences — the way they were meant to be seen! A great way to get ready for 'Tesla Effect'!

Gog does not sell DVD's. You have to burn them to a DVD yourself.

Please ask in Glitches. They can help you burn it to DVD.

gog released the dvd version after the $2.99 special price so you will need to download it again.

Bigmamma I think you should start with Under A Killing Moon. It's shorter and easier, but it gets you ready for Pandora Directive. I played Pandora first and sort of regretted it, UAKM is so short compared to it. I'm getting excited for you!

Under a Killing Moon is still my favourite Tex Murphy - and I've played all five laugh

REALLY looking forward to the new one but hoping it stays close to the others in so many ways yes

Thanks Ana-for clarifying about the DVD issue. I have not downloaded Tex
yet, so does that mean I get a "DVD version" when I do the download?

WOW Mad! there's going to be a new one?!
