Tesla Effect – new trailer shows off Kickstarted Tex Murphy game

It’ve been over a year since we last checked in with Project Fedora, the crowdfunded effort to resurrect beloved adventure franchise Tex Murphy. This trailer shows the newly-titled Tesla Effect coming along nicely.

As you’ll see from the trailer, the game is a mix of live action performance and animation; Murphy was played by creator Chris Jones, although I’m not sure if the developer has reprised his role, since the series has been on hiatus for 15 years. The series is set in a dystopian future San Francisco.

There’s still no release date beyond “coming soon” for Tesla Effect, although it was originally scheduled for a December 2012 launch. Of course, it did raise almost $150,000 more than Big Finish Games asked for, so the scope of the project probably expanded a little.

Thanks, Peter.
