Sobre este jogo

Tex Murphy wakes up – disoriented and head pounding – on the fire escape outside his office atop the Ritz Hotel. Another typical morning for the last of the old-school detectives. Except it isn’t. What starts out as the worst hangover in history becomes a baffling nightmare: something – or someone – has erased Tex’s memory of the past seven years. Motivated by lost love, revenge and the world’s strongest coffee blend, Tex must retrace his own steps into a maze of unsolved murders, hidden agendas and lost technologies of Nikola Tesla. Only by solving the mysteries of his past can Tex hope to regain his memory in time to restore what’s been lost…and stop a terrifying future.

Tex Murphy will finally be back in 2014 after leaving loyal fans on a cliffhanger for almost 16 years, so come get acquainted in a world filled with dangerous dames, morally ambiguous characters, and lots of mysteries to be solved.

Tesla Effect upgrades the classic Tex Murphy experience with HD live-action -- that's right, for those of you not old enough to have played adventure games in the 90s, Tex Murphy embraces the lost art of green screen full-motion video as it interacts with fully modeled 3D environments. Players will be challenged with logic puzzles, interactive dialogue, branching storylines, and alternate endings.

Tesla Effect shines with an eclectic cast of actors, including:
• Todd Bridges (Willis from Diff'rent Strokes...ask someone older if you don't know what that is)
• June "TV's Greatest Mom" Lockhart (ask someone even older if you don't know who that is)
• Larry "Soup Nazi" Thomas (you all have seen Seinfeld, right?)
• Kevin "Tom Servo" Murphy (Mystery Science Theater 3000)
• The original Tex himself, Chris Jones

Strange game - but in a "positive" way. Feels like an interactive Trash-Movie from the 80's. Funny Characters & a lot of humour - but on the other side, there are a few lengthy passages. Especially, the beginning and the last 10-20%, including the end.

But on Balance, it entertained me (~8 hours playtime). So if you're able to enjoy those kind of movies & humour, i suggest you should get it when it's on a steam sale.

The only game where I've audibly cheered at the ending was a game I had bought my non-game-playing father for his birthday, Under A Killing Moon, on CD-ROM back in the 90's. He never played it, but I did. I'm 41 now. This game brought it all back with such a great fedora-tip to the golden age of FMV games and Tex Murphy fans alike ('It sure is good to have the ol' Muyph back!') Now that I've finished the game and my brain isn't stimulated by puzzles and witty banter, I sadly go back to my FPS killing and sigh and wish I was booting up Tesla effect again for the first time. It's a great experience for Tex fans or newcomers, I'm so glad you guys got the chance to come back for one more hurrah and thank you so much! (I didn't know about the Kickstarter or I would have chipped in!) Also, whichever one of you is the conspiracy-nut you did a great job on the Tesla research, good stuff. p.s. Tesla Effect FMV trailer is best trailer.

I had never even heard of Tex Murphy before getting this game in a bundle. The last game that came out before this one came out when I was eight years old and we didn't even own a computer at that point in time, so I was completely clueless about the series before getting it in my library. I read about and thought it sounded interesting and like a relatively quick game so I downloaded it first to give it a try.

I am so happy that I did. It is so much fun and now I definitely want to check out the rest of the serious when I have some extra money. It was funny and kept my interest for the entire time it took me to finish it. Of course there were things I didn't understand and there were several call backs to the other games in the series that meant almost nothing to me but they weren't a vital part of the game and it didn't really take away from gameplay. It was a nice little insight into the series and a brilliant ploy to make me want to buy more.

The game feels dated. It's graphics aren't the best and who really used FMV like that anymore? But that's the beauty of it. Tex is an old-fashioned man in the future and this game is much the same. To be honest, it's refreshing. There are actual characters in this game, not just flashy designs to distracts you from how boring everyone is.

Of course being a puzzle game, it can become an exercise in frustration. I played on gamer mode which disabled all of the hints and the ability to skip puzzles. Some of the objects you have to find are ridiculously small and without the flashlight hint it can take awhile to find them amongst all the background clutter. And the last puzzle of the game is enough to make you want to tear your hair out. But in general, I enjoyed the game all the way through.

If you're a fan of the Tex Murphy series. You'll be right at home with this game. It's a classic Tex Murphy game. If you're not familiar with the series I'd say go in knowing that this game is like travelling back in time. It plays and looks like an early 90's FMV game. Even down to that awkward silence and the locations beig baron. It really takes you back and I love it. So don't expect anything related to modern gaming other than the improved quality of the FMV and slightly upgaded graphics and resolution.

Tesla Effect is the long awaited and crowd funded next edition in the Tex Murphy Adventures.
With it's full motion video and not half bad acting, this title has sent this 38 year old gamer down memory lane.
But with new twists and turns, the FMV is very nicley shot and as mentioned before the acting draws you into the story as the actors did a nice job of showing you their characters motivation, if a little over the top at times.
The puzzels are of average difficulty and the only weak point that this title seems to have, as previous Tex Murphy titles have been much more difficult. If you are a fan of point and click adventures, Tex Murphy, or simply an old fart that wants to play a new FMV game, this title is for you.

9/10

I loved it, despite some shortcomings. There were a few clunky cutscenes which didn't seem to flow right, and it would have made sense to have some NPCs roaming on Chandler ave. The graphics are dated, but that didn't bother me too much. Some of the puzzles were annoying.. I can go on, but at the same time, I haven't felt this enthusiastic about video games for a long time, and that made up all the issues in the end. I hope they make a sequel.

A Great noir adventure. The FMV cutscenes add a lot of personality to the game and i ended up loving them, the story is great but there were a few sections were it got a bit boring but those moments are very few, different endings great puzzles and good dialogue with great voice acting make this game a must for adventure game fans.

Tex is back!

I'm not a diehard fan but not a total noob either - I played "Mean streets" when I was ten and it waas incredible. I think I played some other tex murphy game as well but not sure which. Really wanted to like this game, and I even took the time to finish it. but bottom line: the jokes are lame, the acting terrible, don't get me started about the cast, and the plot was not belivable. an unfortunate thumbs down.

This is honestly the worst game I have ever played. It's like watching the the horrible animation of Spy Kids 3D because they took video of an actual person and dropped him into a terribly animated world. All of the dialogue and gameplay is cliche and uninteresting. 11/10

As a big fan of the old tex murphy games, I was expecting more of this remake. Unfortunately the world feels empty and dead and the plot moves at a very slow pace. Nostalgia is not enough to keep interest.

I've always wanted to play as Rod Stewart. This is a game that holds up rather nicely in all areas, only slightly let down by awful PS1 level visuals in the non-FMV sections (the screenshots seem to be target renders), but still completely passable.

Experience the gripping story of Tex Murphy as you spend over an hour of intense baseball card collecting on some stranger's island home. Experience the intensity of spending another hour figuring out what to do with said intense baseball cards. Experience the action packed 10 second live action cutscene in which you put baseball cards in a frame and a safe slides open.

10/10 like skyrim with baseball cards

Good in some places, bad in others.
Bad texture and model quality in various areas not important to story or gameplay.
Funny but not engaging storytelling.

Over all an enjoyable experiance
