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.

First video lands from Telltale's Tales from the Borderlands

Maybe Activision's new Tony Hawk game should be called Boarder Lands. A little bit of piggybacking, like when they named the newest Call of Duty after the Nintendo handheld classic Advanced Wars.  Taking a break fr...more

Telltale's Game of Thrones is all about the trees, man

Telltale's outlined the plot for the SIX episodes of its take on Game of Thrones, and wow, it sounds like the best lumberjack simulator in years. There are a whole bunch of trees (motherf*cking IRONTREES), and you have to dec...more
