Tex Murphy series
comes to Good Old Games this week.
Futuristic dick.

You see, it’s set in
a mid-century Frisco,
shown through FMV’s.

Live action, in fact.
The first three can be had now;
others coming soon.

Anthony once said
the games “managed not to suck.”
That’s high praise indeed.

Check the gallery
for some fuzzy pics. The games
have no DRM.

Tex Murphy on the Case at GOG.com
The Film Noir Private Eye Returns to the Spotlight as the DRM-free Site Releases the Acclaimed Tex Murphy Series
 
Warsaw, Poland – June 16, 2009. GOG.com (http://www.gog.com), the internet's premier spot for DRM-free classic PC games and an unmatched digital distribution experience, has signed another deal to revive a new batch of classic adventure games. Thanks to the deal with Aaron Conners, one of the creators of the Tex Murphy games, GOG.com will offer the whole series including Mean Streets, Martian Memorandum, Under a Killing Moon, The Pandora Directive and Tex Murphy: Overseer. With the announcement GOG.com releases a bundle of 1989's Mean Streets and 1991's Martian Memorandum (http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/tex_murphy_1_2) for the low price of $5.99 and the third part in the Tex Murphy saga – Under a Killing Moon (http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/tex_murphy_under_a_killing_moon) – for $9.99, DRM-free and XP and Vista compatible.


Tex Murphy thinks of himself as a classic 1940’s-style detective: hard-boiled and cynical with an ex-wife, a few good friends, a lot of enemies, and a drinking problem – the problem being that he can’t afford the good stuff. Unfortunately for Tex, he was born 100 years too late: he’s living in mid-21st century, post-World War III San Francisco. There is plenty of work for a down-on-his-luck P.I. Now he just needs to figure out how to get paid for it.


“Tex Murphy's adventures are the essence of classic adventure games. Add to this an array of crazy and funny characters including Chris Jones as Tex Murphy, and you have an absolute classic,” said Adam Oldakowski, Managing Director of GOG.com. “It’s basically our duty to revive this incredible series for a new generation of gamers, as well as those who played these games back in the 90s.”


According to Aaron Conners, who wrote and co-designed the last three Tex Murphy games, “What people seem to love about Tex is that he’s just an average guy…sometimes a little below average. He’s always in the middle of something that’s way over his head, but as he says: ‘Danger’s like jello – there’s always room for more.’ Most of us can’t relate to being James Bond, but pretty much everyone can relate to Tex.

Mean Streets + Martian Memorandum bundle and Under a Killing Moon are already available at GOG.com, with the rest of Tex Murphy's games planned to hit the catalogue in the coming weeks.

The Wolf Among Us isn't crying wolf with this accolades trailer

The first season of The Wolf Among Us may be over, but there's still one more trailer to indulge in. The quotes included in Episode 5's accolades trailer are technically only about Cry Wolf, but they seem pretty universal as far as the season goes. Tour de force? Genuinely moving? One hell of a ride? Yeah, that sounds like The Wolf Among Us in a nutshell.more
