Tex Murphy

With all the old remakes lately,
It would be aweome to see the Tex Murphy games on the IOS.
Loved those games in the 80's-90's.
Wish there was a request place for those type of FMW games.

The Tex Murphy games are avaliable on PC at GOG.com; which indicates the rights holders are actively selling the brand and that it's up to date to run on modern (PC) systems. It might be worth doing some research to contact the developers, or rights holders, and request they consider an iOS release. I suspect a lot of new coding would need to go into an iOS port so would be skeptical but you never know.

Actually found a Kickstarter project for a new Tex Murphy, but seems that was from a year ago. and they talked about 12-14 months for a release..
That should be around now I guess...
Interesting.

I actually backed The new one "Tesla Effect" and it was mentioned in interviews that they had tablets in mind at some point.

Actually Big Finish recently released a trailer for Tesla Effect here http://www.texmurphy.com/

And I would also love to see the originals on iOS
