The Tex Murphy franchise had its heyday back in the PC adventure renaissance days, but it hasn't been mentioned much in recent years. That changes as Atlus has announced they will be picking up publishing duties for the latest game in the franchise: Tesla Effect.
Tesla Effect revives the glory years of PC adventure games with a return to the full-motion video (FMV) game genre. Known for its sardonic humor, Tesla Effect will be the first Tex Murphy game since 1998. This news comes after a successful Kickstarter last year.
Bill Alexander, vice president of production and business development at Atlus, had this to say about the game: "ATLUS has a great penchant for stepping in to help developers bring their incredible games to market, and we are eager to breathe new life into this classic franchise. We hope that it will bring back fond memories for Tex Murphy fans as well as introduce a new generation of gamers to his one-of-a-kind humor.".
Tesla Effect will be released digitally through Steam on PC and Mac in early 2014.
