      I am really sick now about the delivery! No updates, no informations! This can not be the way to us backers. I pledged for the 100 $ tier boxed version and I have nothing yet! It is a shame!

      Hi, Garkham. As I've just been chased for (international) shipping charges, dispatch can't be too long away.

      Active Russell, did you have any response for your inquiery in physical rewards on the official website ? ;) I'm not panicking because they personnaly answered me that they will make some mailings when they are ready to ship, but it would be good to have some fresh news about it. :)

    4. Rob Perini on

      Thanks, Russell!

    5. Russell Deitch on

      (, that is).

    6. Russell Deitch on

      @Rob, ask Steve on the Tex Murphy forum.

    7. Rob Perini on

      @Russell/Steve: Thanks for the response! I suspect it was sent to my old (inactive) email, which I only updated recently on Kickstarter (which also explains why I wasn't getting any updates for a while...LOL). So, how do I go about getting my key re-sent to me?

    8. Russell Deitch on

      @Rob, from Steve @ BFG -
      "IF you haven’t received your key, don’t panic.
      It could be a delay in the servers, but more likely its:
      A) The Code went to the email you backed the project with, not the one you expected to be used
      B) Caught in your spam filter. There is content (strange characters and a link) in the email that can trigger some filters. Please check."

    9. Russell Deitch on

      ETA I'm a $100 backer too.

    10. Russell Deitch on

      Hi, Rob. We did have a Steam key on the day of release. Gog keys followed a few days later.

      Are the $100 backers getting their physical boxed game anytime soon? Thanks.

    12. Rob Perini on

      I'm really puzzled regarding why we didn't have immediate access to the game on Steam the day it was released (or, well, within a few months of the release), Yes, I know we're supposed to get the physical, boxed game (assuming you contributed enough, which I'm sure you all did), but why not make the access code the same as the one we'll get once the game is shipped? We would have finished the game by now, and started clamoring for more, from the sound of the reviews.

    13. Russell Deitch on

      I've asked about physical rewards in the backer's section of the website. If there's a response, I'll post it here.

      Ok I think I have been patient but..... Can we get some sort of update on where you are with Physical rewards? I am starting to wonder if these are ever going to be released.

    15. barbarian_bros on

      Hey adventure games fans.... Paul Cuisset (The Stealth Affair/Operation Stealth, Flashback quest of identity, Future Wars, Cruise for a Corpse, but also in other genres Moto Racer and Darkstone) is coming back to adventure games with Subject 13 :

    16. Jeff Bixler on

      Update on physical rewards...?

    17. LoatheMe on

      Just getting around to playing this finally (I know, been busy!). It is everything I could have hoped for. Great work.

    18. Fraser Hotchkiss

      Well, that was fun. So... When's the next one?

    19. Russell Deitch on

      @TexMurphy78, you can still update and validate your address through the backer's download page.

    20. TexMurphy78 on

      I have moved and would again change the address? ;)

      Good to hear about rewards I was starting to wonder.

    22. Russell Deitch on

      This is the official response -
      "Physical rewards are being worked on at the moment, there is a lot to fulfill but we are getting there. We will hopefully have more news for you on the delivery of the physical incentives soon! Your feedback has been heard, and your patience is appreciated!"

    23. Frogacuda on

      I doubt the patches have anything to do with it. I imagine we'll hear something soon enough.

    24. Russell Deitch on

      No physical rewards have been sent out yet. It will be a little while since they're still doing patches.

    25. dave00dance on

      Has anyone received there boxed version yet or does anyone know when they will be shipped ?

    26. Tomimt on

      After Tesla Effect I'd be more than willing to shell money to a new Tex game. It was such a well done experience for me, that despite I've said it a couple of time that I'd prefer the future games to be done from the profits made from the this game, I'd be more than happy to jump in the train again.

    27. Jim Clark on

      Common guys lets see the next Tex Murphy Kickstarter underway so that we don't have to wait another 7 years.

      You better believe the Mutant League is on standby. You allready have a green screen. :-)

    28. Frogacuda on

      Riggo: On the flip side, they really stretched their budget and made this game a lot larger than they had intended, so it's not like your money didn't go to good use.

    29. Don C - SpaceVenture Evangelist on

      Anyone else trying to play it on a Microsoft Surface Pro? It's ok expect for the video.

    30. Bagglewag on

      just wanted to say thanks to the team. its so amazing that after all this time, you actually did make the best tex game (in my opinion). im so happy and satisfied. i would gladly pledge another 100 for another game ;D

    31. Riggo on

      Thanks Russell. However, coming from a backer who upped his pledge just for the idea of an in-game golf mini-game, I am not real happy! I would have saved myself over $100! -_-

      I didn't really need a shot glass....

    32. Mat Van Rhoon on

      If anybody is still have issues with the codes, or has not received theirs yet (AND they have checked their trash folder and Spam folder.... AND are aware that if you were a BETA level backer you would already have access to the game on GOG without the need for a code). as Luke suggested, contact: can also try the forums at that same sight. Both usually are addressed fairly promptly, but please also be patient as the same team working hard to deliver updates and requested patches to the game will also be addressing these issues! Thank you! :)

    33. Russell Deitch on

      There you go, Riggo. You should be able to read this.

    34. Russell Deitch on

      I will, Riggo, when I can get on. They're having network issues at present.

    35. Riggo on

      Russell... Can you post the official response here? I don't do forums.

    36. Russell Deitch on

      @Eric, there is a stickied thread in the Backer Discussion forum - here:

    37. Russell Deitch on

      Riggo, that's all you're going to get. Sorry. You need to read the official response on the Big Finish Games site / Project Fedora forums.

    38. Riggo on

      Finished doing all 3 endings. Very well done! .... but, where is my golf!?!?!?

      Update 26 June, 7th 2012

      Stretch Goals!

      If we exceed funding by 30% ($585,000+): Another expansion of the story (including puzzles, gameplay, locations and characters), ingame golf game, and Live Orchestra for the games' music.

      I don't believe a broken simulator counts as an ingame golf game...

    39. Tet Yoon Lee on

      Just finished. According to Steam I spent 20 hours or so.


      My ending was the 'Happily Ever After' one. Did fool around with the conversations but most of the key choices are resonably far back so will take a while to get the others.

    40. Eric Childers on

      I don't see the solution in the forums, kinda hard to navigate

    41. OrbitalBliss on

      Ignore me... the keys apparently hit my inbox a couple hours ago... thanks for sorting it out.

    42. OrbitalBliss on

      I still haven't gotten keys for Steam or GOG yet. Sounds like other people are enjoying the game though.

    43. Russell Deitch on

      I'd be in for another Tex Murphy Kickstarter!

    44. Frogacuda on

      David: BFG has all the rights, so if this one sells enough, they'll do another. But that's still a big unknown at this point. Maybe another Kickstarter if it comes down to it?

    45. Russell Deitch on

      @Eric, you will find a solution to that error message on the Big Finish Games website in the Project Fedora forums.

    46. Eric Childers on

      I can't get my GOG code to work. This is the error message..."To redeem Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure you need to own Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure"

    47. jester59388

      On Day 2 and just loving it! It's a beautiful game, boys! I think I started to well up as I watched the opening intro scene, I was so happy! THIS is the return to adventure gaming as we used to know it! THANK YOU!!!!!

      Please note...I still wait for my steam code....used the contact link last night and a week ago. So far, no response....

    49. Shane Banks on

      Mr. Van Rhoon, thank you and everyone at BFG for this EPIC game. Considering the budget, the small team, you all did one hell of an amazing job! Thanks so much!!!!
