Acerca deste 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

Take what made the original Tex Muprhy great and add beautiful FMV and challenging puzzles with a very stylized atmosphere and you got yourself a new Tex Murphy game. While the acting and story may be cheesy, that's the whole charm of this series, and to see the original actor for Tex back is always a charm. This was honestly one of the funniest games I've played in awhile.

Just like old times.

Can't remember the last modern game that had FMV (maybe C&C series). The video and composite green screening was very well done. Film was shot on a Canon C100 and the quality was just right. It is so fresh to have an old technology.
Acting was terribly great!
Story was fun and tied things together.
Great homages to all past games.
Puzzles were fun but in my taste too easy for a Tex game.
Fun easter eggs.
Fair amount of gameplay, but could always ask for more.

At some point will try some of the other game paths. There are 5 possible endings, which always makes a game fun to play again.

The success of this game should show that FMV is no longer a dead technology; quality video and compositing should open up a world of interactive fiction/non-fiction. I expect to see another Tex and really hope others try to borrow from this design.

Often when old series are revived in modern installments, the gameplay is changed or dumbed down to appeal to modern audiences, leaving fans alienated. Not so with Tesla Effect. The gameplay is more or less identical to the last few efforts, for good or ill. While not as fiendishly difficult as Under a Killing Moon or TPD, there are still puzzles to be found sprinkled throughout the game. There are many surprisingly well-acted and high budget, high-resolution FMVs, some great humour and alternate endings depending on some decisions taken. Weaknesses are the length and the way the story seems to fizzle out half way through (many major plot events are simply left hanging).

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.

If you liked the old Tex Murphy games, you'll enjoy this game too. Only downside for me what the framerate improvement kinda made this game hard to play for more than 30 minutes at a time without getting vertigo. My dad, who was the biggest fan of the series, couldn't handle the game even with the settings adjusted.

Three main reasons i bought it nostalgia, nostalgia, nostalgia
It delivered on that part I was 15 years younger in a sec
(I know it is 16 years ago but I bought it later)

Features
Straight forward point and click adventure with an atmosphere like no other game (could be my nostalgia again)
Fairly simple puzzles. The hard parts are when u don’t find an object right away, If U want originality in your puzzles stay away from this game.
A Hint system for those that are stuck and don’t want to spent some time figuring things out by themselves (but why would u play a game like this if u don’t like to solve stuff)

Negative points (for me)
WSAD movement is not adjustable and I don’t have a qwerty keyboard. Not possible to change the keys but luckily the arrow keys worked.
Stealth part was a bit dull nut hard but annoying.
End game puzzle was extremely annoying due to the lack of time died like 20 times
I rather have some difficulty here then a cheap time limit to make it hard.

But it made me dig after those cd’s from the previous one (yep still have those) eager to play that one as well.

Wow, this old school Text adventure lives up to the Tex Murphy name. Brings back a lot of memories and like all Tex Murphy games, it not only looks good but has a great storyline, every area is full of interesting things to interact with and fun little jokes, plus good old Chris Jones does his usual excellent impression of Harrison Ford in Blade Runner. 5 stars!

Better production values and a decent story make this a good adventure game. It is not quite as fun as the games that preceded it though: Way too much time is spent finding hidden objects.

Do NOT play this in gamer mode, as it only adds frustration.

Never played any of the other Tex Murphy games, but I still enjoyed this game way more than I thought I would.
The game is similar to games of this type made before, but for younger gamers I would say you might enjoy this if you enjoy any of the first person Sherlock Holmes games. That said, dont expect good graphics or advnaced animations, but the story is good fun and interesting on serveral levels until the end. Its actually a good adventure game.

Fans of Tex Murphy have waited far too long for an answer to the cliffhanger that Overseer left them with. Tesla Effect does an admirable job of bringing Tex into the 2010s, but this game is strictly for the fans. Newcomers will likely be confused.

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.

Damn, they really delivered. If you liked the old games even a little bit you are going to love Tesla Effect. This is pure fan service and a pretty awesome game. It's nice to be back on Chandler Avenue.

I love it.

Pros:
- Humor
- Entertaining story and characters
- Awesome FMVs
- Cool locations

Cons:
- In game graphics not really up to date

WOW what a GAME!

I played the originals back in the 90's?. This is just fantastic old school gaming. There is a magic about these types of games that are missing from todays games. The 3d environments are not that great at all and probably the bigger issue is seeing peoples eyes move as they are reading the "Q" cards during the investigation scenes (which is unfortunate). But that does NOT matter here. This game HOOKS you and wants you to keep going.

I miss these types of games, and I hope this brings back (if nothing else) a niche resurgence. Be it FMV or great story-telling adventures. I just can't believe how much I forgot what it was like to care about a game I am playing. THANK YOU TO THE TEX MURPHY TEAM! WELL DONE!

"Danger is alot like Jell-o theres always room for more"

After 16 LONG years Tex is back and in a higher resolution than ever befor,
he has straightend his tie and bought some real shoes and is ready to get back to work.
visuals are not the only difference, A new control scheme is introduced aswell, it should fit comfortably to any modern gamer.
It's such a joy to return to Chandler Avenue and see all those old faces again, It's been a long time and we are all wondering,
What happend to Tex Murphy? Well...

Grab your fedroa and bourbon and lets go on one last adventure, hopefully the Big P.I. in the Sky is looking out for us.

You don't know who Tex Murphy is? You don't know about his adventures back then? Then it is about time. I am part of the crowdfunders who helped that Tex Murphy Tesla Effect got realized. And it is so worth it. A great story. Characters from Previous games. Every Adventure of Tex Murphy is a great adventure. Follow him to his newest, even more greatest adventure EVER, where Tex Murphy has to save the world again.
