Tesla Effect Pre-Orders Open For Business, Soundtrack and a Previous Tex Murphy Adventure Included


Big Finish’s Kickstarted Tex Murphy full motion video adventure revival (well, real-time 3D gameplay with FMV cutscenes), dubbed Tesla Effect, is now available for pre-order on GOG.com and Steam for $17.99 (10% off the full $19.99 price), with a launch date locked in for April 22nd. But saving a mere two bucks isn’t the only benefit to being an early adopter.

Ordering from GOG includes the Tesla Effect official soundtrack (MP3 and FLAC) along with your choice of any one of the four previous detective stories: Tex Murphy 1+2, Under A Killing Moon, The Pandora Directive, or Tex Murphy: Overseer. Pre-purchasing on Steam comes with the Tex Murphy Live Jazz soundtrack (I’m assuming that’s something different from the regular soundtrack, but I don’t know for certain), as well as immediate download access to play The Pandora Directive.

Two videos have been released alongside the launch date news, including a pre-order announcement with a montage of classic scenes introduced by Tex himself, Chris Jones, and the official Tesla Effect launch trailer. If you can watch those and walk away without totally geeking out, you just don’t like adventure games.

P.S. As an added bonus of Tex Murphy awesomeness, here’s the short but silly April Fools’ gag video Big Finish goofed fans with earlier in the week.

Boom! You’ve been Rick Rolled, bitches!
