[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

The creators of Tex Murphy are hoping to bring back their popular and award-winning detective/sci-fi/adventure game series. A Kickstarter campaign entitled “Tex Murphy – Project Fedora,” was launched on May 15 and has already generated over 45% of its $450,000 fundraising goal in the first four days.

Big Finish Games, the developer, promises an epic reunion for fans who have waited more than a decade for the return of Tex Murphy. The original creative team, including creator/designer Chris Jones, designer/writer Aaron Conners, and director Adrian Carr, has reunited for the project.

The Pandora Directive and Under a Killing Moon, two games in the Tex Murphy series, were recently ranked #9 and #25 on a list of the Greatest Adventure Games of All Time, according to www.AdventureGamers.com. The series was known for pioneering the Full Motion Video adventure game genre and featured actors such as James Earl Jones, Kevin McCarthy and Michael York in prominent roles.

According to Big Finish CEO, Chris Jones, the script has been completed and the company will start development immediately if the Kickstarter goal is met by the ending date of June 15.
