Big Finish Games wants to bring Tex Murphy back to the forefront of adventure games, and it needs your help via a Kickstarter round, which goes live on May 15.

Founded by Chris Jones and Aaron Conners in 2007, Big Finish is looking to create the next entry in the series, which stars a normal, human PI named Tex Murphy surrounded by others with genetic defects. He runs his detective business out of a hotel in Old San Francisco where the mutants as well as the down-and-out tend to settle.

The last game om the series was in 1998 through the duo’s Access Software, which was eventually acquired by Microsoft and sold to Take-Two which dismantled it.

In 2009, Conners and Jones re-acquired the rights to past and future Tex games and now, you can help with the funding of a new entry.

The announcement trailer is below.

Thanks, RPS.
