6,963 backers pledged $598,104 to help bring this project to life.

The Final Countdown!

Posted by Chris Jones & Aaron Conners (Creator)


You guys did it! We have surpassed the 120% mark and we’re at 130%. Whatever the "Tex Murphy - Project Fedora" Kickstarter campaign receives from here on out (Between 130-135%) will go towards expanded game play, more recognizable actors, and maybe even a musical number - no, wait- DEFINITELY a Musical number!

Tex Murphy Memorabilia Giveaway

Kickstarter has emailed us again this morning and requested that we move the giveaway officially to our Big Finish Site. So it will officially be done through our website, All the same rules apply, but the drawing will be postponed until June 29 and we will be contacting winners through Big Finish – not Kickstarter. :)

Google+ On Air

Adrian Carr, Aaron Conners, Chris Jones, Doug Vandegrift and others from the Big Finish Team will be having a “Countdown” party for their Kickstarter campaign tonight at 9:00pm MDT. We will embed the live video on the Kickstarter page. If you have any questions you would like to ask – Tex related or not – submit them through the subject line: Google+ question.

Thank you, Mutant League! You guys have been AMAZING!

      We've all been dying to have a musical number starring Pug, singing about soiling himself.

      Nice work guys! Still can't believe this is happening! Also regarding the musical number I'm hoping it's not actually part of the game and it's a hidden Easter egg, I just think a random musical number would take me out of the game lol.

      I hope it's not like when he throws his gun out the window. I picture flying golf clubs in my head. :P

      There should have been an incentive where Chris Jones gives you a golf lesson. :)

      It's an amazing feeling to see this Kickstarter project get such a good reception. After all these years I can finally look forward to play another Tex Murphy game sometime in the next 12 months :)

    8. Minsc&Boo on

      The future ain't what it used to be! It's darker, grittier, funnier than ever! And includes a hard boiled P.I on a case to save the world (again).

      Gents and femme fatales, while we prepare to wrap this up, I just want to say it has been an absolute privilege to be a part of this among such a dedicated group of slightly fanatic texofiles.
      In the past 12 years or so, petitions were signed, campaigns were held, Microsoft executives were harassed by teenagers and many plans were turned to failures as we tried to bring our beloved Mr Murphy back on Chandler Av and beyond.
      What it took, in the end, was the hard work of a passionate studio, backed by a horde of lunatics and believers. I cannot think of another group of developers which could have been more worthy of a chance like this, and they truly earned this success, down to the last penny.
      So here's to a successful campaign, built on the solid foundations of a truly great series in this ever so short gaming history! And here's to video games! The best damn medium ever created!

      @paul scroll up they answered that in this chat "Nope, you won't have to sign up again. We have all the names of people who have donated $15 and up. We're just delaying it to distinguish it from Kickstarter and contacting you through BFG mail service rather than Kickstarter."

    11. Matthias Grandis on

      I still can't believe this is happening. Thank you so much, everyone!

    12. Paul Cook on

      Oh, just read up a bit, I guess we have over 10K from Paypal, good nuff xD

      I'm confuzzled... 579,198 != 585,000.
      As 450,000 * 0.3 = 135,000
      And 450,000 + 135,000 = 585,000
      How does 579,198 = 130% reached?

      Have we gotten enough from Paypal donations to make up for the remaining money? O_o

      On another note, I'm just starting UAKM, which is so far really fun!
      If this is as good as it is while it was made for DOS, I can't wait to see what they can do with our most modern technology! :D

    21. Flavie Jourdan on

      Congratulation ! I want 10 more Tex Murphy !!!

    22. WP - Member, Mutant League on

      WoW, 130% that is awesome sauce, amazing stuff everyone :)

      If you want to see Tex Murphy as a hero in a zombie card game,

      check this out I read it in one of Downward Viral's update about Z.

      I think at the Musical Number that is something like what happens in a Musical (as in High school musical. There is a scene where all begin to sing. ;) ) Only that it is one scene. Maybe at the end or such. heheh however. That would be AWESOME

    24. shrubbery on

      Just one word: Awesome

    25. Rena on

      Actually guess I'll send it as a Google+ question :) Look forward to the live countdown!!

    26. Liz Calkins on

      Awright. I was hoping we'd get over the 120% mark, as I'm totally looking forward to having a real adventure game on my tablet. (Seriously, are there any others for Android that aren't actually hidden object games?)

    27. Rena on

      @Chris and Aaron: What is meant by a musical number? Is Tex / Chris going to show his great piano skills again for a new funny song or a extended version of "Hot and Cold The Shower Sprays On Me" (loved that). Or a song at the Fuschia Flamingo nightclub? I think it'd be a bit over the top if someone suddenly broke into song or the whole of Chandler Avenue started parading down the street singing the woes of being Mutants unless it was some kind of easter egg to discover in which case that could be pretty fun lol.

      on the Jun the 14th there were over 9k from paypal and 566k from the kickstarters
      now we have kickstarter 577k + paypal 9k = 586k. (at least) Does it mean what I am THINKING? DIE WE DO IT? 130%!!!!?

    29. SoulLifter on

      Congrats Chris and the gang! A historic day! :D

    30. Just the ordinary Chris on

      @CJ/AC OK I will register on BFG ASAP. In case no one told you yet: Thank you, I never thought or even dreamed while playing UAKM in 1994 in Poland that one day I will contribute to Tex Murphy game not to mention chatting with its creators. Thank you.

    31. Chris Jones & Aaron Conners Creator on

      Wow - Trippy double post in two different places!

    32. Chris Jones & Aaron Conners Creator on

      @Lafguy, Once our Kickstarter closes, we will design a survey which Kickstarter disseminates to all the backers. Kickstarter does this to get t-shirt sizes, mailing addresses, contact information, etc. We'll be sure to ask if you currently have a BFG ID already and we'll also ask for your contact email address.
      @Just the ordinary Chris - We will get your info from the above survey so we can set you up with a BFG ID. Unfortunately, our WebMaster is at a funeral today - he will have much more useful information about our site.

    33. Rodger van den Braak on

      Same here, have fun though!

    34. Abel GC on

      I'm going to miss the countdown because that's sleep time for me...


    35. Brian L.B. on

      It's kinda strange that in less that twelve hours I will once again become my thirteen year old self eagerly waiting to see what happend to Tex.
      Mr. Jones I should apologize beforehand since the first thing I will probably be doing when I get my hands on Fedora is to try and see how many P.I. rules I can make Tex break with fatal results.

      Ok, everyone to Louie's for spicy Lamb Chili and bourbon, on the house!

    37. lafguy on

      Could I get my BFG ID switched from pdwe to lafguy to avoid confusion?

    38. lafguy on

      My BFG ID is different then my kickstarter ID. How can you contact me?

    39. Just the ordinary Chris on

      Great. Should we register somehow at BFG?

      I also have a question: How will you send the prizes? Maybe as gifts? (you know: customs, customs customs...).

    40. Chris Jones & Aaron Conners Creator on

      @Serena - Nope, you won't have to sign up again. We have all the names of people who have donated $15 and up. We're just delaying it to distinguish it from Kickstarter and contacting you through BFG mail service rather than Kickstarter.

      How will the raffle work through the Web site? Would we have to sign up for anything there?

    43. Shatners Bassoon on

      We still gonna get the Golf game?

    44. Tony De Francisco

      Well I sure hope the actors would be recognizable - I mean, if they just have big masses of pixels for faces, that's not going to be very much fun.

      Is there any chance for an iPad version down the line? It would be more than awesome! :)

      Somewhere out there, little three year old baby Tex Murphy is smiling in his sleep... Sleep well little Tex, sleep well. Your future is bright as a star, and we love you! :D
