Donning the Fedora – A Tesla Effect Documentary
I was extremely fortunate to be invited out to Salt Lake City for Tesla Effect’s premiere event on May 4th, 2014. And you know I just had to bring my camera.
This is a documentary on the making of Tesla Effect, the new Tex Murphy adventure game, and more specifically, on the unprecedented involvement the fans and backers had in its development. Aside from getting footage of the Tesla Effect premiere event, I interviewed many fans, most of whom worked on the game in one form or another, as well as some employees at Big Finish Games, and I also got to speak to the game’s director, Adrian Carr, the author, Aaron Conners, and Tex Murphy himself, Chris Jones.
I want to give special thanks to my mom, Linda Randolph, and my best friend, Tiffany Green, without whom I would not have been able to go on this trip. And of course, special thanks to everyone at Big Finish Games and all the fans I spent time with for making my trip to Salt Lake City for Tesla Effect’s premiere a truly wonderful and memorable one. And of course, all of the fans at the Unofficial Tex Murphy boards and backers of the Tex Murphy Kickstarter for making this game possible.
