Submission + - Big Finish Games Bringing Back Full-Motion Video Adventure Games (joystiq.com)

Mr. Jaggers writes: "Widely remembered as the pioneers in Full-Motion Video adventure gaming, the creators of the beloved Tex Murphy futuristic neo-noir series of adventure games has successfully funded their latest installment, code named Project Fedora, via crowd-funding. The team conducted a successful AMA last week and will feature much of the original cast of characters (including game designer Chris Jones, as Tex himself), and, if his interest can be peaked, the voice talents of James Earl Jones, among others. It ought to be a real treat for fans of gritty hard-boiled detective stories who like their sci-fi dark and dystopian, to see an FMV game done right, by one of the only developers to have pulled it off well. Pre-orders are being taken here and here."
