      Alright, forget my previous comment.. I'm not sure if it's related but since I upgraded to Windows 8.1 the demo works beautifully ! Such a pleasure to see Tex in 2K :) You still got it !

      I downloaded the demo of the game on Steam, but unfortunately the videos can't be displayed on my computer.

      I can see the main menu properly, I can see the loading screens, I can see the 3D part where you can move Tex around - but as soon there is a video, the only thing I can see is a green screen, with the subtitles of the dialogs ( I can hear the actors talking as well).

      Am I the only one in this case ? I'm not sure where I should report that bug...

      For references, I'm playing on a laptop with a 2GB AMD Radeon 8670M

      Thank you if anyone know how to fix this !

      I'm an ass. I received the normal http://www.bigfinishgames.com/user - login data on 2012-07-24 and the http://www.bigfinishgames.com/mutant-league-download - login data on 2012-11-10 , where I'm already seeing a currently deactivated "project fedora download" button.

      Everything is resolved. Sorry.

      Creator ThomasN 6 days ago

      I specifically want to clarify this problem now because I know at launch some person who did not receive any mails since 2012-02-16 and has no clue how to redeem his pledge is the least of their problems.

    10. Squirrel.small

      Creator ThomasN 6 days ago

      As this company doesen't reply to my email with following question:
      "I should be occuring in your backer database with this email: xxxx .
      So far, I did not receive any mail how to choose which version (GOG/Steam) I want.
      Is this normal?"

      Can someone here tell me he has the same problem, or am I the only one?

      Creator Mindjive on April 8

      Russel: You should've gotten an email from Big Finish with a link to a survey a while after the kickstarter was completed where you got to choose which old Tex Murphy game you wanted gog-key for, just remembered it myself now and tried to go to the survey-link but get "page not found" now, guess we should've used the link 1½ years ago when the e-mail was sent.

      Creator Stephen "Stoibs" D on April 5

      I assume we will have he option to choose Steam keys from that weird 'Mutant league' double handled login that required far too many hoops to jump through (as opposed to using something simple like Humble like pretty much every other kickstarter game does.. -_-)
      And if so, when will these be available?
      I would also assume (and hope) we get the same pre-order incentives steam are offering too? Can't seem to find any info on this from recent updates or on the steam discussion forums.

      Creator William McDonie on April 4

      I am confused the backer section of the site doesnt give options on if you want GOG or Steam. I assume everyone who backed is getting GOG then?

      Not to be rude but personally I would like to choose. I would much rather have the Steam code rather than GOG.

    27. Missing_small

      Creator Mindjive on April 4

      I really hope we get to choose where we get to download the game, personally I would prefer a Steam key(and would love if we get Pandora Directive there too even though I already have the retail discs+gog version)
      You've done simple surveys to choose stuff before so shouldn't be hard right? :-)
      And getting steam keys for developers don't cost you(BFG) anything extra.
      Hopefully we can get steam keys soon so we can install Pandora Directive and play before the release of Tesla Effect.

      $50 Bracket here(+gave away a couple of $15 tiers for friends)

      Will the Steam key include The Pandora Directive as well? It's part of the pre-order bonus, as well as a soundtrack.

      Would be nice with some information if the release date of April 22nd date on GoG looks like its going to be met?
      I'm hoping to get at least a few weeks advance notice of the release date since I'm planning to play through all the old games before the release. :-)

      For pre-orders ONLY: Includes the official Tesla Effect soundtrack in MP3 and FLAC formats.
      For pre-orders ONLY: Can't wait to dive into the seedy underworld of New San Francisco? Then choose one of the four previous Tex Murphy detective stories along with your pre-order: Tex Murphy 1+2, Under A Killing Moon, The Pandora Directive, or Tex Murphy: Overseer.

      Not sure the backers at 30$ will be happy to know this...

      Creator Joel-Alexander Lowther on April 1

      This is a question for either Chris, Aaron or Matt (I also posted it at the Big Finish Forums)

      I recently logged onto GOG to check out the store page for Tesla and it tells me that I already own the game. The only way it could think this is because I did download the Beta through entering the necessary code to activate the download. I personally would prefer to redeem my backer entitlement via Steam but i'm concerned I now won't be able to because I participated in the Beta.


      Any thoughts?

    35. Detective-sepia-100.small

      Creator ZUrlocker on April 1

      I'm confused. Where do I get the soundtrack? I backed at the $30+ level. Thanks

      hey all, sorry for "spamming" but i thought some of you might be interested in another really promising looking adventure game "Dead Synchronicity" that just started their run at the kickstarter. Just thought it might interest somoene with its nice art style and mature sci-fi story. It's from a samll new indie developer without any big names attached to it but there's a demo already available so you can see bits of it in action clearly showing that they know what they're doing and are able to deliver. Here's the link to their campaign:

      Feb 2014, I am a Tex backer of 250$. I Love the games and can't wait to play Tesla Effect. I was just looking at the site and seen that the date for receiving the other things like the shirt and stuff was along time ago and I haven't received anything. Has anybody else got there things? Or is these items coming with the game?
