Love Tex. Can't wait for the next installment. It seriously reminds me of the Gabriel Knight franchise, of which I wish they'd male another installment rather than its spiritual successor, Moebius. All are very cool games, btw.
Wait, they're making yet another?
Seriously! Really glad to see that!
I love how you can tell that they were still new to the sheer amount of FMV in UaKM and how they had essentially mastered it for Pandora Directive.
The difference in acting, cinematography and lighting/environments was staggering.
However, I find it to have been a downgrade when they went for the "No one every exists outside of cutscenes" style for Tesla Effect, which is a style I first encountered in The Journeyman Project 3. I can see why, it's a way to prevent the classic "2D sprite on 3D plane, so it always looks the same direction" thing that games like Doom (dead enemies always face the same direction towards you), but to be honest, I still prefer that style.
THAT'S what Tex Murphy is about?! I would have loved these games! Because of the "Tex" title i never guessed it was set in the future, in the style of Blade Runner, and I always ignored these games. Thank you for this video.
I did hear that Poisoned pawn is actually a reboot of Overseer. An older game which is I think now over 20 years old. And the last game before kickstarter project Tesla Effect. There shall be more riddles. More footage and areas to explore. Will I buy it? OH HELL YEAH I WILL!
TPD is the best in the series and my favourite game of all time. I tried, but I just didn’t like Tesla Effect, there’s some good things in it but they went over board with the cheesiness. If I ever get my laptop fixed I look forward to playing Poisoned Pawn.
You can read the novels... Yeah.. But if you are a Dresden Files fan like me, audiobook versions especially, you'll be busy being delighted and laughing too hard to be really bothered by the graphics. Found and finished them just before Tesla Effect came out. :)
Back then I did start with Under a Killing Moon. And the thing is that Under a Killing moon is the first game of that sort that ever came out. Yes, it is a Dos game and it will use the DoSBox Emulator and to save you have to make sure you start the game as administrator. However on GoG you can get ALL the games for a fair price. Why not buy all and start the game with Mean streets, then go to martian memorendum, under a killing moon aso. Then you also see how everything, including the gameplay did evolve and develope. Have fun and enjoy.
One of my fav series. Great video. Most FMV games in the 90s had god-awful acting, but Chris Jones and the others were always really good. I didn't get a chance to help out with the kickstarter for Tesla Effect, but I'm glad how well it turned out. Looking forward to the Poisoned Pawn.
no it will not "need" to be on console. It will be another cost to add to the list, and console players only want Cod because" git gud or get rekt lulz lozl hurr durr". That's the basic demographic of console players, so it would fail on console market.
Thanks for the upload Dave! Returning fan to your channel after a bit of a youtube hiatus, bought tesla effect awhile back but never got into it proper, but know I will love it and am really excited for The Poisoned Pawn!!!
Dave, sense anita sarkeesian (cunt) has an entire series dedicated to calling out "misogyny" in games, why don't you make a series doing the same for misandary. With more facts and justifiable examples, of course. This is just a recommendation.
Having been involved in the Tesla Effect Kickstarter Campaign and being a Tex Murphy Games fan since UAKM, the news that we not only get Poisoned Pawn but also at least another game is GREAT news! hope this all succeeds in the end :)
Yeah, I'm curious enough to look at LP's of the series from the start, hell if that voice at the end is Grimoire Weiss like I think it is, guaranteed good voice acting at least, and it seems like the new games were made for the right reasons ie love of the series, rather than just baiting nostalgia for money
Thanks Dave! I am a big fan of this series but did not know a new one was in the works! This is fantastic news.
We need to spread the word about these great games.
I have them all. Great series and lots of fun.
It's things like this that make me want a personal theatre; find a full blind playthrough of Tesla Effect, a bunch of... People I probably don't know, we'll call them "friends", and some popcorn and BOOM! A fantastic weekend.
