Tex Murphy Kickstarter reaches its goal

It looks like FMV adventure game stalwart Tex Murphy will ride again; Project Fedora, the Kickstarter campaign started by franchise creators Chris Jones and Aaron Connors, reached its funding target with a week to go until its deadline. Project Fedora has raised just over $505,000 at the time of writing.

Released back in the mid-'90s, the Tex Murphy series starred the fedora-clad, noir-inspired detective as he worked on a series of cases based in San Francisco in the near future. After three titles, the series seemed finished but Chris Jones, who plays the titular star, has managed to rally a strong following to see Project Fedora funded.

I think I'm with former Rock Paper Shotgun scribe Kieron Gillen on the whole Kickstarter craze: it's like getting the old band back together again. Games with passionate followings and developers are putting their money where their mouths are and reviving franchises and genres that most thought were dead. Of course, none of this is a guarantee of a quality game, but it's comforting to know that the people making the game are passionate about the project.

[Thanks, Stevil]
