Tex Murphy: Overseer
Tex Murphy Is Back In First Made For DVD Virtual World Mystery Tex Murphy: Overseer is the fifth installment in Access Software's award-winning series, and the first game built from the ground up for DVD.
Access Software announced today the November, 1997 release of Tex Murphy: Overseer. Tex, the unshaven P.I. of Under A Killing Moon and The Pandora Directive fame, will now race through a full-screen Virtual World via DVD technology.
"There is perhaps no other type of game that will benefit more from DVD technology than the Tex Murphy genre," explains Chris Jones--a.k.a. Tex Murphy--Executive VP at Access. "Our last adventure in this series contained over four gigabytes of graphics and source data to create an award winning 3D Virtual World. To substantially raise the bar on technology with Tex Murphy: Overseer, we needed DVD."
New features in Tex Murphy: Overseer include a high color 3D Virtual World, AC-3 Dolby™ digital 5-channel surround sound and up to movie-quality video frame rates. Fans of the series will be pleased to learn that Hollywood director Adrian Carr is back, working with a new cast that includes Michael York and Rebecca Broussard. "The story begins with a suspicious suicide leap and ends with a finale guaranteed to blow the audience away," promises Chris Jones.
The new adventure will ship with both one DVD, and four CDs in each box to accommodate all users during this DVD conversion period. Some features are not available on the CD version.
