‘Project Fedora’ was the code name for the sixth game in the Tex Murphy Adventure Game series. Now entitled “Tesla Effect,” it was crowdfunded through Kickstarter by the amazing Mutant League.

You likely also know the chilling tale of how Tex was abducted (in every sense of the word) and then seemingly vanished into thin air.
If you haven't played any of the Tex Murphy games – or just showed up here looking for porn but now find your curiosity piqued – you might be asking:
WHO IS TEX MURPHY?
First, though, do you love adventure games? Ones with great stories, exciting mysteries to solve, lots of hilarious dialogue? Maybe even a little romance and danger?
If you're still interested (and if you're not, then god help you), what would you say to a true 3D adventure game experience with tons of world exploration, things to discover and use in clever ways, many interactive conversations with lots of interesting characters, and dozens of challenging puzzles (but with an awesome hint system so you never get stuck)?
And what if...brace yourself...on top of all this, the choices you made in the game – both in conversations and actions – could actually change the story, leading to new events and gameplay...even to different resolutions?
Who cares who Tex Murphy is, right? (OK. If you really want to know, he's an old-school P.I. living in a dystopian future who relies on questionable charm, good intentions, old-fashioned detective work and, often, dumb luck to solve thrilling, epic cases).
Now the bigger question:
WHY SHOULD I WANT TO BRING TEX MURPHY BACK?
Adventure games are enjoying a wonderful revival and the Tex Murphy games were (and are) classic adventure games. Recently, Adventure Gamers named The Pandora Directive the "#9 greatest adventure game of all time".
The Pandora Directive and Under a Killing Moon each won "Adventure Game of the Year" when they were released. If you're interested, check out the reviews below (Google to find many more) or watch some of the hundreds of Tex Murphy game clips posted by players on YouTube.
