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.
  • Tex Murphy returns to add another incredible chapter to the classic adventure game series. Noir sci-fi with a very healthy dose of humor set the stage for Tex's latest mystery.
  • The triumphant return of the FMV! With noteworthy actors and 1080 resolution, the colorful characters of 2050's San Francisco have never looked so good!
  • The greatest mystery of the century is about to be unraveled. Tex needs to find out what's going on in a hurry, but he'll have to deal with mutants, killers, femme fatales, and a bad case of amnesia to get to the bottom of things.

  1. Great Adventure Game
    by JT&LB, USA - Dec 18th 2014

    It was so much fun to spend time with Tex Murphy again. The acting, story, game play, humor, and graphics were great. You get to see all the old Tex Murphy characters and meet a few more. I played the "Casual" difficulty. The first part of the game takes place in Tex's neighborhood and you get to see clips from the previous Tex games. When you get to the Tesla Society, it's like playing a different game-even more fun! The only reason this is not rated a five is because of the "Death Factor." There are just too many things that you have to avoid, which are tedious. Choosing a wrong discussion point or getting too close to a mutant and dying is fine, but avoiding the random giant bees and the blue energy ball was annoying. The other problem was that it was too easy to skip a puzzle, some of which were hard. I mistakenly clicked on the wrong icon twice and skipped the puzzle instead of just exiting from it. It would be nice if they had the words "SKIP" & "EXIT" on the puzzle sceens. The game includes a point system that I didn't pay any attention to, but for some it would make the game more replayable by trying to improve their "Spade and Marlowe scale of private eye intelligence". All in all this is a fun game and I recommend it to any true adventure gamer.
