“Project Fedora” will continue the amazing adventures of Tex Murphy, the down-on-his-luck P.I. in post-apocalyptic San Francisco. This long-awaited game will be the sixth in the adventure series, which includes the award-winning games Under a Killing Moon, The Pandora Directive and Overseer.
Project Fedora will reunite creators Chris Jones and Aaron Conners and feature their trademarks of rich interactive storytelling and immersive gameplay. The new game will incorporate the very best of the classic Tex Murphy elements - sci-fi, film noir, witty dialogue, great characters, beautifully integrated FMV, and a deep, engaging story - but it will also enhance the experience of the former games with stunning new graphics, a sleek new interface, and other updates.
The detective-style gameplay takes place in a fully 3D world where you search for clues, solve puzzles, investigate crimes, and question witnesses and suspects. While the gameplay will be fun and challenging, you'll never get stuck with the free, built-in hint system.
One of Project Fedora's most exciting features is how the game and story can unfold in different ways. As you play, your actions and choices will change events, leading to new story elements and gameplay. This "narrative pathing" not only allows you to customize your experience, it will provide unique replayability, as the game will have at least three or more story paths leading to multiple endings.
Long-time Tex fans may be curious if the new storyline will pick up where Overseer (and its infamous cliffhanger) left off. The short answer is YES, but this game will be just as enjoyable for people who have never played the earlier games. While we can't give too many details yet, just be prepared for an incredible opening sequence!
Project Fedora promises to be the best Tex Murphy adventure ever - even better than the last three Tex Murphy games (Under a Killing Moon, The Pandora Directive, Overseer), which were met with critical acclaim, won "Adventure Game of the Year" awards, and are consistently ranked as some of the best adventure games of all time. (Check out the reviews below!)
9.0 - Outstanding
"...has weathered the test of time as one of the best detective games to this day."

Final Grade: A
"If you're a veteran of adventure games, you owe it to yourself to play this classic. If you're new to them, this game will help make you an addict..."
Final Grade: A
"The extraordinary plot, combined with witty and professional acting, challenging puzzles, and immersive graphics result in another great adventure game from the Tex Murphy series."

Recent Interview with Adventure Gaming Classic
The funding received from Kickstarter will be dedicated entirely to the production of the next Tex Murphy Game “Project Fedora.” The majority of the Kickstarter funding (65%) will go towards programming and the creation of art assets for the 3D virtual world. The other 35% will go towards story development and the ingame cinematics.
At our current $450,000 financial goal, the game will be on PC and Mac. However, if we exceed expectations and receive more funding, we will expand what platforms “Project Fedora” will be on including Xbox and tablet. Unfortunately, the engine does not support Linux.
Yes. Once you purchase “Project Fedora” it is yours! You may download it to as many supported devices that you own (PC or Mac).
Yes, the new Tex Murphy game will incorporate Full Motion video into a 3D digital world as featured in our Kickstarter video.
As soon as we have reached our financial goal of $450,000 – we will open up PayPal as a method of payment.
Yes! We would love to feature your picture in the game as well as have Tex make a comment about the photo.
No! The "Estimated Delivery" is when you will have access to most of the digital incentives ("Music of Tex Murphy" soundtrack, PDF of Comic Book,) and when most of the physical incentives (T-Shirt, Shot Glass, Novels, Director's Chair) will have been shipped to you!
We are anticipating a 12-14 month development cycle once funding is secured. Publishers usually receive their Kickstarter funding 15-25 days after the fundraising period has closed.
Send us a message through Kickstarter, or use the Big Finish Games contact form (http://bigfinishgames.com/contact). We love to hear feedback from our backers!
The audio for "Project Fedora" will only be available in English, however, we plan to support subtitles for English and if we exceed our goal by 20%, French, Italian, German, and Spanish.
