Sleuthed: Atlus picks up Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure

Tesla Effect - 4

The gents and dames over at Atlus have picked up Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure for publishing, and some detective work has revealed four new screenshots.

It’s hard to know what this means for the man on the street, but a little sleuthing of the press release indicates that it’ll be hitting Steam and other platforms in 2014, and that this’ll give Big Finish help to “fully develop their vision.” Considering it’s Atlus, it also probably means the Europe release will be delayed for four years. Yes, I’m still sore about Persona 4 Arena.

Tesla Effect is the sixth outing for Tex Murphy, a character who bucked all trends by being in FMV adventures that were actually really good and nicely toed the line between sardonic humour and actual drama, and will be his first adventure since 1998. This one opens with Tex waking up with a head wound and an injection mark on his arm, and realising that he can’t remember the last seven years of his life. In short, it’s just like Saturday morning for most people in Bridgwater.

Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure is due out in 2014. Four hard-boiled screenshots follow.

He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
