Hard-luck private investigator Tex Murphy returns for his first new adventure in post-apocalyptic San Francisco after leaving fans hanging for nearly 16 years following the conclusion of 1998's Overseer. Game designer Chris Jones reprises his role as Tex himself as he awakens on Chandler Ave to discover he cannot recall any memories of the past seven years, and that's on top of the gaping head wound and injection mark on his arm!
Now Tex must attempt to the unravel the mystery of why he was attacked, and why his memories have been stolen. Like classic adventure titles, the story is delivered through FMV sequences starring actual actors portraying characters previously introduced in prior Tex Murphy titles. Investigative gameplay meanwhile is conducted in 3D environments.
Like Under a Killing Moon and The Pandora Directive, Tesla Effect features multiple story paths leading to different endings.
- Todd Bridges
- June Lockhart
- Larry Thomas (the soup nazi from Seinfeld)
- Kevin Murphy
- and course, Chris Jones himself
