Hover Cars and Lightning Bolts Abound in The Latest Tesla Effect Trailer

Atlus and Big Finish Games deliver a ‘Tex-mas’ present- new media from Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure

Tex Murphy - Tesla Effect Molten Silhouette

Developer Big Finish Games has released a new trailer along with some screens  for Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure. It’s been a few months since we last looked at the down-on-his-luck gumshoe’s latest adventure, but we’re liking what we see in this new footage.  Clocking in at just over a minute long, this brief new footage offers a look at the dystopian San Francisco of the 2040s we’ll be sleuthing around, along with the some of the cheesy full motion video clips the series is known for.

We haven’t seen a new Tex Murphy adventure since 1998’s Overseer, making this a long overdue caper many fans of classic PC adventures should surely take notice of. From the goofy characters to the campy noir dialog, Tesla Effect seems to have its heart in the right place. One thing’s for sure, we can’t wait to get our hands on this post-apocalyptic adventure when it launches early next year.

For now, check out these screenshots of some of the locales you’ll be visiting along with some of the fine and fiendish folks you’ll encounter when exploring the irradiated streets of San Francisco.
