Tex Murphy: Tesla Effect Trailer Goes All-In With 90s-Style FMV

Tex Murphy is back – and I mean, Tex Murphy is back – with a new eight-minute trailer that resurrects the FMV-loving 90s in all its cheesy glory.

The Tex Murphy guys wrapped up a successful Kickstarter last June, raising nearly $600,000 to fund the creation of a new adventure entitled Tesla Effect. Big Finish, the studio behind the game, has since signed a publishing deal with Atlus which will allow it to “more fully develop its vision,” but even with the addition of a proper publisher that vision quite obviously remains undiluted.

What do I mean by that? Just watch this video and all will be clear. Tesla Effect isn’t just like the 90s, it is the 90s, specifically the brief era when full-motion video, powered by the miracle of CD-ROM drives, was all the rage. Low-rent green-screening, cheesy dialog, over-the-top scenery-chewing – all that and more, Tesla Effect looks set to deliver.

I don’t know if this is something I’ll actually end up playing – I was never much of a Tex Murphy fan – but this trailer sure is a lot more fun than that other one that came out today. Tex Murphy: Tesla Effect is currently scheduled to hit Steam in early 2014. You can find out more about what’s going on at texmurphy.com.
