The client is drop-dead gorgeous. Her father is just plain dead - of an apparent suicide. An open-and-shut case, but Tex is willing to do anything to make rent.

This is the fifth installment in the Tex Murphy series of adventure games. The games in order of release are: Mean Streets, Martian Memorandum, Under a Killing Moon, The Pandora Directive and Overseer.

"Overseer" is the fourth of the Tex Murphy games to feature video. The first, "Martian Memorandum," incorporated small amounts of lower-quality video but mostly incorporated photographs that changed slightly at intervals, thus the need for game developers to distinguish between these "slide-show" videos used in games and the "full-motion" video of the CD-Rom era.

Under a Killing Moon and The Pandora Directive also featured extensive FMV.
