Tex Murphy Poisoned Pawn still a thing or not?

Seems like most of the updates on this game are almost a year old. Is this still being worked on?

I wondered too. No news on the game site, twitter, facebook, etc. Nothing from Big Finish, nothing from the devs at Chaotic Fusion. Aaron Conners mentioned the Poisoned Pawn on his home page one month ago, but don’t get your hopes up, he doesn’t know anything.

OK, so let me start by saying: Tex Murphy fans are the best. I’m not sure I (or anyone else on our end of things) really deserve you and your eternal patience! All evidence to the contrary, things really are in the works. Everything just seems to take a lot longer than we think it will.

Many of you have been asking for updates, especially regarding The Poisoned Pawn: A Tex Murphy Adventure. I wish I could give you some specific details. All I know is that when and if the fine folks at Chaotic Fusion have an update, they’ll let us all know.

I’m sorry to say the project looks dead to me.  Cry

One thing I know about developers is that posting updates (in most cases) means absolutely nothing. You can have a developer posting constant updates, saying it will be out next month for years (certain ghost-adventure developers come to mind here), and then another developer who posts no updates and has the game out faster than expected.

The lesson here is probably: the best expectations are zero expectations.

Indiana Jones and the Fountain of Youth.

LOL! Say no more. Don’t remember how long ago that was. They had a pretty nice demo and it was one of the first fan projects I gave some money.

PS: There was even some talk of hiring the same voice actor who did the original Indiana games if they could raise enough money. He wasn’t exactly cheap.

There is a recent post from 5 May on the Tesla Effect steam community forum that mentions Poisoned Pawn, so it may not be as dead a project as it seems.

I keep looking for news on this game as well, but there’s nothing to be found anywhere.

I really hope the game is not dead - It looks soooo promising.

On the website, they announce that the game will be supporting VR. Maybe that part is too expensive? If so, I wish they would just focus on finishing a non-VR version of the game.

I was always a little confused about this game.  I mean it started as a fan remake of the remake of the first Tex game?  I never played Mean Streets, but I like Overseer a lot and didn’t particularly think it needed a remake.  But now it sounds like it’s a completely new game that is a sequel to The Tesla Effect?  Except it’s clearly still focused on events that occurred in Overseer, as evidenced by the title The Poisoned Pawn.  I don’t really understand what this game is…

Although I will always be excited for a new Tex Murphy installment regardless.  Hopefully it does get released.  There were 16 years between Overseer and The Tesla Effect, so we can afford to wait a little longer.

Thanks for the post, Gatekeeper. Maybe it’s time that I get a twitter account Crazy
