The Poisoned Pawn: A Tex Murphy Adventure

You are Tex Murphy, a typical 1940s gumshoe detective. Except it’s the 2050s. A post apocalyptic world has risen from the ashes of World War III and stands divided. New San Francisco sits atop the rubble of the old city. It’s a city of glitz and glamour hiding a sinister undertone: a population segregated between those immune to the nuclear fallout (Norms) and those less fortunate (Mutants). Just outside the new city lies Old San Francisco, a vastly ignored reminder of a dark past, and home to the mutant population, and Tex himself. In this latest adventure, the year is 2051. Shortly after the events of Tesla Effect, Tex Murphy, with the guidance of St. Germaine, must revisit some of his most gripping cases in order to decipher his true past, and prepare him for an uncertain future.

Originally announced as a fan-made update of Overseer before being revamped as “act one of the final chapter in the Tex Murphy series.”
