“There has been a lot of press attention since the announcement on the development of Tex Murphy: Overseer by Access Software in October 1997. Many adventure fans have purchased new computer upgrades and systems, anticipating the return of the world famous private investigator Tex Murphy.”

“Like The Pandora Directive, Overseer has a solid story and great gameplay to keep any adventure game fan happy. The acting and the story are very solid and offer enough mystery and surprise to keep things moving along.”

Overseer is a retelling of the story from Mean Streets, and contradicts many of the events and character descriptions in the original story. Since Overseer is part of the "modern era" of Tex adventures, it is safe to consider the new, retold story as "canon."
