You don't see many interactive movie games. I got hooked on the Tex Murphy series back in 1994 when "Under A Killing Moon" hit the shelves. Ever since I have loved the series; sad to see it be discontinued in 1999 due to lacking sales. They had planned on making at least another two games, oh well. In February 1998, when this game was first put out on the store shelves, I vividly remember its odd packaging. Every "Tex Murphy: Overseer" box was equipped with a battery-powered blinking red LED bulb. It was strange walking into the computer store to see a row of blinking red lights in the game section. After I bought my copy and brought it home to play, I tried in vain to disable the darn bulb. It blinked night and day for months, long after I beat the game. All in all, this is a great game series. If you can still buy copies of these Tex Murphy games, you will be in for a treat. It is money well spent as you will surely not tire of Tex's dry humor.
