Tex Murphy - Project Fedora Funded

The Kickstarter Page for Tex Murphy - Project Fedora indicates this project has reached its funding goals, well in advance of its deadline (thanks Todd). Here's word on the detective adventure revival:

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.

He's not actually a programmer. I think he's more of a CFO/CEO type. But yea, I agree, his acting is perfect for the game and it wouldn't be the same without him.

Chris Jones himself (one of the project leads) played Tex in the FMV games. it always blew my mind how decent his acting was considering he was a programmer by trade.

Good stuff there and glad they are bringing back Tex. I think i finished 'Martian Memorandum' and I got a good way through 'Under a Killing Moon' (great game). I hope they bring back the same guy that played him in 'Killing', his delivery was dry and spot on. They need to make him an old, burnt out, drunk.....kinda like Max Payne but without the bullet time

I just looked it up, Chris Jones is the creator of the series, has always starred as Tex Murphy, and owned the company back in their hayday. And yes he's going to continue in the lead roll in the kickstarted game.

I went to the 'Water and Ice' store near my house and I asked to see they're 'Secret Menu'.

I think I only ever played the very first one, and never got too far...I'm kinda broke but may still have to see if I can scrounge up $15 for them.

Someone on the Two Guys kickstarter was talking about the Coles (of Quest for Glory fame) doing a KS, but it sounds like it might be a few months away. No way in hell I'd miss that one.

That's good news. I only ever played Under a Killing Moon, and I don't remember it all that well except that the 3D graphics were really impressive for the time and I liked the characters.

Actually, as I recall, I rented it from the video store... back in the FMV days (when most games were crap), but were mostly impossible to pirate because a typical hard drive was smaller than a CD and there were no consumer writers. That lasted about a year.
