Grab a Fedora and Kickstart Tex Murphy - Project Fedora

Tex Murphy, adventure gaming's fedora-wearing, wise-cracking, lovable and down-on-his-luck detective, has been solving crimes ever since his first appearance on 1989's almost classic Mean Streets. More than a few games followed and each and every one of them managed to be a mostly brilliant, generally succesful and usually innovative point-and-clicker that humorously managed to mix sci-fi and noir elements.

Now, as you may have noticed, there hasn't been a Tex Murphy game since Overseer and that was back in 1998. But, as with the recent blooming of the Adventure Renaissance apparently anything can happen, a Tex Murphy Kickstarter campaign happened and you should definitely support it. 

Project Fedora, for this is how the game is currently being called, is aiming to be the best Tex Murphy to date, and, well, hopes are high. It will apparently be another FMV/3D trip to post-apocalyptic San Francisco that will reunite creators Chris Jones and Aaron Conners and resolve any cliffhangers that may have been tormenting you those last years. Oh, and, so you know, there are some excellent reward tiers to help you part with your money; $15 will indeed be buying you a copy of the game.

[EXCITING UPDATE]: The ever-brilliant Adventure Lantern posted a brilliant interview with Chris Jones on Project Fedora for you to read/listen to.
