By Matt Williams, Monday, 11 June 2012 02:06 GMT

The Tex Murphy Kickstarter venture, codenamed “Project Fedora”, has successfully surpassed its $450,000 goal, ensuring the game’s creation.

At time of writing, the amount pledged sits at $506,450, with 5,698 project backers.

In surpassing $495,000, the project has reached its first stretch goal, which promised an additional story including puzzles, gameplay, locations and characters.

With five days left until the campaign comes to close, the project still has two further stretch goals to potentially exceed. At $540,000, the game will be ported to additional platforms, more recognisable actors will be feature, and text translations will be created for French, Italian, German and Spanish. Another expansion of the story is promised if the project exceeds $585,000, along with an in-game golf game, and Live Orchestra for the game’s music.

Chris Jones, the series’ original creator, produced the following video to thank backers for their support.
