Tex Murphy fans can get their fix in 14 hours from Steam hereor GoG here.

Updated 5/9 Greetings Mutant League!
TEX IS BACK! For two days now, can you believe it? By now, you should have received your Steam code for Tesla Effect.
There has been a lot of hubbub about the GOG codes, so let’s clear that up.
We had requested GOG codes for our Kickstarter backers early on. However, by the night the game was supposed to launch, we had not received them yet. It was a choice of whether we wanted to make the backers wait for the GOG codes, or simply send everyone a Steam code to access “Tesla Effect.” Since we wanted you guys to be able to play the game the first day it came out, we opted to send everyone the Steam code. However, the good news is by Thursday we received GOG codes. We are currently sending out emails with GOG codes to members of the Mutant League. It will be about 24 hours before all the emails have been sent out, so remember to check your inbox (and your spambox!)
People who are at the Beta Level Testing and above tier already have the game on GOG so will not be receiving new codes. The Beta on GOG can be updated to the full edition of the game. For instructions on how to "refresh your shelf" on GOG, please visit: https://secure.gog.com/account/refresh
We respectfully ask that you don’t share the codes with people, and continue to enjoy "Tesla Effect." Have a great weekend!
Best,
Chris

Great news, Ana. And hopefully the GOG download will be available at approximately the same time. thumbsup

Well I just got an email from BFG and they gave me the download code to unlock the game on steam. However, when I go to steam there is no option to enter the code only to buy the game. Maybe tomorrow they will have opened an option to enter the download code.

I was just so excited I thought I could download the game and have it done even if they didn't unlock it until tomorrow. Plus the Big finish site says it will be available on GOG as well but I only got a steam code. I'd prefer GOG but whatever, I just want the game.

I sent BFG an email asking them what was going on so maybe I'll get an answer by the time the game is unlocked.

To use a product code at steam:
- Open steam and log in.
- At top left, click on "games".
- select from the drop down menu.
- enter your code.

Thank you so much MaG. You can teach an old dog new tricks. I activated the game and got the message that it wasn't released yet but it is now in my library and as soon as it is available I'll be able to download it.

I think if you get the game from steam you have to be connect to the internet to play the game am I right or not. Will wait for GOG to have it.

Richard, my understanding is that there is an option to play a game in "offline mode" on Steam after you have purchased and activated the game. There are instructions on the Steam website on how to do this. wave

It still says - Tesla Effect is coming soon, I bought it directly from Steam, then patience is required oops

Earlier the Steam page said "coming in about 1 hour", now it is still in pre-purchase and says nothing about when it is coming think

1:50 ET, it is downloading now bravo

I guess we are all waiting "impatiently" for GOG to provide the download. It's 2:30 PM here in NY, and as yet it's a "no go" Patience, patience, patience.

Update from BigFinish for Kickstarter backers:

Quote:
Ok folks, here is an UPDATE! Steam keys are on their way to the thousands of backers who were eligible for a download of the game. WE are working VERY hard to deliver all of these, so please be patient. We only very recently received the list of keys and our own email servers are distributing the emails to all the users. Thousands have already made it through, and thousands more are coming VERY soon! IMPORTANT: THIS GAME IS DRM FREE! When you upload a product to Steam, there is an option to select whether or not you want that game to use DRM, which we have NOT selected, which means you ONLY use Steam to Download the game. After which point THE GAME IS YOURS. If you don't like Steam you can close Steam, delete Steam, do whatever you want with Steam after you have downloaded Tesla Effect. I reiterate: THIS GAME IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE DRM FREE!

That worked.
Strange that Tesla Effect was the only game that was affected.

I am highly PO'd and I just told emailed Big Finish to let them know exactly how I feel.
This is the LAST time I ever back anything on Kickstarter or trust any developer to keep his word.
I pledged way too much to be tossed a Steam key and told that it is free of DRM when I consider the Steam client you have to use to download the game DRM and I am not alone in this.

If I am not sent a code to redeem on GOG, Big Finish can !@#*! well keep the game.

Gil.

In the GOG my games area, it states:

+1 DLC

Can I assume this is embedded in the game?

I don't have steam open on my pc but every time I start the game steam starts to.
I guess I have to have steam running to play Tesla Effect. So it's a online game.

RevCo, it says that in my games area, too - I'm going to assume it's included in the game unless I hear otherwise; if I do, I will post a note here about it.

Gil, I hope that Big Finish gives you a GOG code. I think it's nice that you can download the game with the Steam client and can then delete it and still play the game. However, I do understand that there are those who never want the Steam client on their computer at all.

Richard, here is the page about offline mode with Steam:

Hi, Marian!

I pre-ordered the game last month from GOG, so I'm currently downloading it now. It's taking forever, but I've been waiting almost 20 years, so I guess another hour or so won't matter lol ! Now I just have to decide which other game I want for my freebee.

I would have done better not to support the making of Tesla Effect at all.
Backers should have received their codes for the game, Steam or not, before anyone else could buy it.
If I had not supported the game, I could already be playing it for much less than I pledged.
Well, I certainly learned my lesson.

Gil.
