New Tex Murphy? Hell yes. Here take my monies.
> However, in light of recent internal developments it’s now likely that the Tex Murphy series will continue with more games.
My deepest thanks go out to recent internal developments!
Oh thank God! I really have no use for two kidneys anyway, so glad I kept that business card now...
i just wanted to write you if we can hope for another Tex Murphy Game. Love you guys!
Poisoned Pawn was great news; that Poisoned Pawn had morphed into some kind of new game rather than just a remake was even better news; if we are now to learn that there will be a game even beyond Poisoned Pawn, that takes the cake. Forget the radio episodes. Fantastic!
Disappointed to hear about the radio theatre, was really looking forward to that, but glad there will be more Tex games.
Will the documentary have optional english subtitles?
@Parallax - One of our team members is currently in the process of manually transcribing the documentary subtitles. As the final video will also be hosted on YouTube, these will be available for all viewers as an option.
That's great news for people with hearing disabilities like myself. Thanks a bunch :)
I have goosebumps! Thank you so much for this exciting update!
More Tex? I'm all in.
More Tex? Yes please.
Awesome that there is still a needed for ole Tex and adventures! Looking forward to backing or buying the next one!
To hear that there will be more Tex games is music to my ears. Long live Murphy and FMV (properly used)
SO excited for more Tex Murphy games. *squeals in delight* ( :
The world needs Tex!
Will it be another Kickstarter? Can't wait!
It's a great idea to release the documentary for everyone! And also that we'll get HD downloads :-)
Bummed that I'll have to miss the live stream. It sounds like fun. I'm looking forward to seeing the documentary and new announcement though.
I have no regrets backing Project Fedora and would easily back another Kickstarter if you hosted it for Poisoned Pawn.
Best kickstarter campaign I have ever been a part of. I hope to grow old with Tex!
I do wonder if there's still any way to buy that comic book separately. That was a really hefty reward tier for a short comic.
However the best news here is there will be more Tex Murphy games!
Awesome to hear there's more Tex in the works! Any chances of finishing the Linux version of Tesla Effect, and/or new games supporting Linux from the start?
That's fantastic news about the possibility of more Tex Murphy games. Tesla Effect was a great comeback for the franchise, so here's hoping it leads to big (finish) things!
super excited for this event, can't wait. The possibility of more Tex Games...sign me up!
There can never be too much Tex in your life.
More Tex Murphy games instead of "secondary" content? That's a trade I take any time!
We'd like to make one small correction to the update post above. Where we say "Longest running adventure game franchise" we meant to say "Longest running adventure game protagonist." It is with a massive amount of respect for our adventure game peers that we recognize this.
Also, an update on documentary subtitles. The digital download will be accompanied by an SRT file which contains an English transcription of the video, to assist those who are hearing impaired. The live stream and YouTube versions will also feature these subtitles.
Only just found out that The Poisoned Pawn is turning into something bigger than the overseer remake! And another Tex game on top of that; I'm having to pinch myslef regularly just to remind myself I'm not dreaming!
Any chance you could wave your magic wand and make it so that cats live for at least 20 years as well?
Excellent news all round!
Hopefully I'll be able to watch the documentary live - either way I look forward to seeing it, and look VERY forward to hearing more details on the next game.
I have to admit I am a bit diappointed that backers that would have received the Radio Theater Episodes instead get part of a book.
An incomplete book is generally not a very satisfying read and feels more like an enticement to buy something else rather than a reward.
@Ranneko It's strange how people will give their favorite devs a pass on pretty obvious rip offs. I certainly won't be backing Big Finish for any physical items again. Probably not for digital either. Just wait for the released game.
The main reason I back video games campaigns is because of the actual game, everything else is a plus.
What is a box made of paper and other stuff worth when the game sucks?
Also what's wrong with the physical rewards? And beside the Radio Theater Episodes I can't remember anything which was wrong with digital rewards either.
I would back them again in a heartbeat.
The game was nice.
The 'box' was a bad bad joke.
New game sounds amazing.
"To help compensate backers for not doing the Radio Theater, Aaron Conners has offered to give eligible backers the first section of his novel for free. This will be available within the next several months."
..SUCKS SUPER BAD!
Another promise not delivered!!
Would I back another Tex kickstarter?
..ONLY for the game!
Reward-wise, physical and digital, THIS STINKS a LOT!
Yes, the Radio Theater part sucks. But beside that I've got several Gigabyte of digital rewards (excluding the game) from this Kickstarter and there is nothing wrong with those.
@Martin O, The only reason for me to back at a higher level is for the rewards/incentives. I have a limited amount of extra cash to spend on this sort of thing.
So when I do back something at a higher level and they don't follow through on the rewards, it really leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Supporting the game is great and all, but the devs really need to do their part on all fronts. Otherwise it could really be described as fraud.
OK, I assume you didn't like the box. And you aren't happy that the Radio Theater Episodes got cancelled, I can understand that.
But now you are even talking about fraud? I guess we both live in different universes.
Fraud: Wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial or personal gain.
Not different universes, just different perspectives.
> give eligible backers the first section of his novel
First section? How is that a reward?
@Overmann, I think that the definition you quote shows clearly that there's no fraud here.
I would like to file an official complaint. Radio Theater is radio theater. I'm glad there's another game coming and that you'd like to monetize the new game and the new book. But we already invested our money for the radio theater. Why would we pay for radio theater if we did not want radio theater? There is a market for the radio theater, so monetize the radio theater if you like -- but give us the radio theater. I like you guys and support you, but this is unacceptable.
Please be respectful and considerate. We trusted you with our money for radio theater, not a book (chapter).
Thank you everyone for your feedback. We hear you!
