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.
