Tex Murphy - April's Favorite Fool - Has Some Pre-order Information For You

Update April 17th: The game is going to be released on May 7th

You can view the launch trailer here.

Quote:
Here's some pre-order information from the man himself, Tex Murphy. You can click the link above or follow this one here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUTO3wQ6ijY

Oh, and the best part about the pre-orders? It means we also have a launch date for you: Tex will bungle his way to PCs beginning on April 22, 2014!

The Tesla Effect pre-order bonuses include:

GOG.com
10% Discount ($17.99)
Tesla Effect Soundtrack
ONE of the following full games: T ex Murphy 1+2, Under a Killing Moon, The Pandora Directive, or Tex Murphy: Overseer

Steam
10% Discount ($17.99)
Tex Murphy Live Jazz Soundtrack
The Pandora Directive (Full Game)

In the Tesla Effect, we find Tex Murphy down and out: down on his luck and out with a concussion; but it's not long before his latest case takes him in search of Nikola Tesla's greatest secrets. Will Tex once again overcome the crime-ridden and Mutant-infested streets of San Francisco, a place with radiation levels that make Chernobyl look like the Garden of Eden and enough booze to incapacitate even the most hardened gumshoes? We'll just have to wait and see...

But who IS Tex Murphy? He's the kind of hardboiled, grizzled private eye that can take a punch (or several dozen), hangs out in only the most reputable seedy establishments, needs the support of a good dame (be she real or hologram), has a fedora for every occasion, and ALWAYS has a backup plan (thanks to being a licensed dance instructor):
Tex Murphy is the last of the hard-boiled private 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.

Tesla Effect is a mystery 3D adventure game seamlessly blended with the renowned Tex Murphy franchise's renowned full-motion video (FMV) scenes. Look for Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure on Steam and GOG on April 22, 2014!



Happy Gaming!

The launch trailer has blown my mind. I Thought pre=ordering yesterday would kill me. I am not ready to actually PLAY the game yet, I'm glad I have to wait until the 22nd to do that. Thank you.

Thanks for this "heads up", Ana. I paid my money to GOG, and I'm just waiting for April 22.

Hi, Ana!

Wow! I didn't realize the release date would be this soon, and I still can't believe we will be seeing Tex again. The minute I read your announcement, I placed my pre-order with GOG and am counting the days to April 22.

Thanks for the heads up; otherwise, I would have missed it!

Been playing adventure games since Dracula Resurrection but never played Tex Murphy, unfortunately. I`m going to buy Tesla Effect from GOG but which free game should I get? Thank you.

Opinions will differ, of course, on which game to choose - but if you haven't played any of them, I would recommend The Pandora Directive. It's my personal favorite. wave

Jema, I believe that physical copies of the game were only going to be available for those who pledged a certain amount of money to Kickstarter, but if anyone else knows something different, I hope they will post here and correct me. wave

Thanks for the reply, Marian. I do hope that changes because I want the game - but only on disk.

Under A Killing Moon is the first major one and my favorite. You get to know Tex a bit before the rest of his cases.
