Tesla Effect trailer reintroduces Tex Murphy and the gang

The second trailer for Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure, released today by developer Big Finish Games, connects the game to its predecessors and introduces its entire cast of campy characters.

Tesla Effect picks up where 1998's Tex Murphy: Overseer and its cliffhanger ending left off, and the short film of a trailer — it clocks in at more than eight minutes — provides glimpses at where the story is going. Tesla Effect takes place in the same post-apocalyptic future that is the setting of the Tex Murphy series of FMV adventure games.

Big Finish pulled in just under $600,000 on Kickstarter for Tesla Effect last spring, and currently plans to release the game in early 2014 on Windows PC and Mac. It will be published by Atlus.
