Tex Murphy’s Project Fedora gets a jolt with official title, first video

It's been 15 years since the last Tex Murphy adventure, and over a year since we found out a new one was on its way, but at long last there's a first live glimpse of the newly-rebranded Tesla Effect.

Successfully funded through Kickstarter last June under the working title "Project Fedora", there's been little information publicly disclosed to non-backers about the game until now, though the team at Big Finish Games has been hard at work all year. But now we all get to finally see the first substantial evidence of its progress with today's release of a handful of new screenshots and the first live-action trailer for the game.

Details about the plot of Tesla Effect are still sketchy at this point, but the video poses a promising scenario: "What if Lucifer had not been defeated, but lay in wait... preparing for his chance to overthrow heaven? Look at the world around you. Did heaven win the battle? Your role, whether for good or evil, has yet to be determined."

The finished game is still a fair way off, but stay tuned for more about Tesla Effect in the coming months, including an in-depth interview here at Adventure Gamers with director Adrian Carr.

Looking forward to this! Looks like the FMV has improved a bunch since the last game.

So pumped about this game, and the trailer just re-energized me!  Can’t wait!  Long Live Tex!!!

This looks awesome. The graphics are gorgeous.

The kickstarter I backed that I’m least looking forward to.

The death/stealth/maze sections in all 3 of the FMV Tex games absolutely DESTROYED my enjoyment of the games. Well, not ENTIRELY, but pretty damn substantially.  There’s a lot I liked about the games, but from what I’ve read, the stuff I DETESTED in the earlier games seem to be pretty much revered by the die-hard fans, so I’m approaching with caution this one.

Yeah, it’s amazing how much the FMV has improved since the last Tex game.

Looks like the start to something great. Take all the time you need to make this Tex Murphy adventure a classic.

Cool! And I also didn’t like some of the death/stealth/maze sections but they weren’t that bad either. For me at least. So I’m not apprehensive and just look forward to this game. So take your time making it but when it’s finished, please publish it, unlike other people do… Wink

This game is the one game that I have been looking forward to the most. I am super excited. I will probably need to buy a new computer for this game (since my current set up only handles traditional adventure games that are not heavy on 3D), but it will probably be worth it. Smile
