      Carmageddon sent me and I'm glad they did. DRM free? Count me in. Fight the good fight, guys.

    2. Creator Andrew Gibbons on June 7, 2012

      Bring back the FMVS!!!! .. A Second Coming of games with REAL ACTORS .. not 3D CHARACTERS!

    3. Creator Marieke Brinks on June 7, 2012

      Cant wait to play! This is great news

    4. Creator Gunther VDP on June 7, 2012

      you deserve it ! I'll know you'll make us proud
      this rocks, can't wait to get the finished product in hands !

    5. Creator Douglas Wells on June 7, 2012

      This is awesome!! We have all been waiting for a new Tex game since 1998. Killing Moon, Pandora and Oversser were the best games ever made and Access software was once the best. Along with Tex, Access created that amazing golf sim Links, which the best there was until Microsoft bought out Access and killed both Links and Tex. I also hope there will more Tex Murphy games to follow this new one. Go Chris, Aaron and guys rock the house!!!

      @SoulLifter: Indeed a great day! High Five!

    7. Creator Rami Yohay on June 7, 2012

      Chris Jones , I hope this won`t be the last Tex Murphy`s game ;)

    8. Creator char on June 7, 2012

      Great for all the Tex fans. Now we can find out how it ends or not!

    10. Creator William Cody Winter on June 7, 2012

      Well Done Big Finish Games!

    11. Creator John Albers (deleted) on June 7, 2012

      Congratulations Big Finish!! Of all the game developers out there I can't think of anyone who doesn't deserve to be fully funded! :)

    12. Creator William Cody Winter on June 7, 2012

      I just hope the game will be made, as I've seen other games make their money on here and never get made.

    13. Creator Warren Wang on June 7, 2012

      Congrats! Now let's try to get the funding as high as possible. Don't forget that Kickstarter takes a cut, and that not all pledges will go through... (so probably 10% of the funding is out the window right there). And then all the physical rewards will also take a chunk out.

    14. Creator Jonathan - Member, Mutant League on June 7, 2012

      Thrilled to read this as I woke up this morning. Going to have a Tex Marathon to catch up and get ready for the new game!

    15. Creator Renee Byrd on June 7, 2012

      It's been interesting to be so invested in a project that I've been sitting rather nervously wondering if it's going to reach its goal. You obviously put a lot of effort into this campaign and managed to reach out to tons of fans. When I back another struggling Kickstarter effort, I may point them over to this and a few other pages to show them examples of success. Congratulations!

    16. Creator Changis von Secondly on June 7, 2012

      Congrats :D i'm so naming any future cat i may acquire "Tex Murphy" in honour of keeping Tex alive.
      Also a big thanks to everyone else who contributed.
      This is the best 100$ (plus 15$ for intl. shipping and any tax and customs fee that might come from it) i have ever spent :D

    17. Creator Jean-Marc Giffin on June 7, 2012

      Excellently done, everybody! Now time to make this happen for the SpaceVenture!!

    18. Creator donna halstead on June 7, 2012

      It is fun and interesting to watch the behind the scenes of what it takes nowadays to get a game up and running. Would that some wealthy person was interested in Tex as the rest of us are and just hand over the full amount and say 'go to it'! And if I were in that company, would do so. Good luck with the project.

    19. Creator filippod on June 7, 2012

      This is crazy. I don't know how you pulled this trick but I'm sure glad it worked. Congrats!

    20. Creator Donnicton on June 7, 2012


      Any way you guys can also make a quick heads up for your Two Buddies from Andromeda? They're even closer to the wire with 137k left to cover and 5 days left to do it.

    21. Creator Melanie Foraker on June 7, 2012

      So VERY excited!!! Congratulations!!!

    22. Creator johnontibero on June 7, 2012

      Congrats, what a great funding idea, went like a rocket! Yeah, hopefully we'll get our regular Tex-fix from now on. Such great characters and games.

    26. Creator WP - Member, Mutant League on June 7, 2012

    27. Creator PKRG on June 7, 2012

      Awesome ! To think that Tex will be back soon makes my day ! Congratulations to the team and to the backers !!

    28. Creator Tomimt on June 7, 2012

      I do hope that this means a great beginning for a stream of new, great Murphy games.

    29. Creator ET3D on June 7, 2012

      So, what are the stretch goals again?

    30. Creator Misha on June 7, 2012


      Is is time to discuss stretch goals already? How about the return of James Earl Jones as the Big P.I. in the sky?

    31. Creator Paul Marzagalli on June 7, 2012

      I guess my question is: was Michael York actually involved? :-D

    32. Creator Daniel Hermle on June 7, 2012
