A simple burglary at Rook's Pawn Shop leads to something much, much bigger when the beautiful Countess Renier hires Tex to find a crystal dove statuette that was stolen from her bungalow - but is this "Countess" all that she seems?

Tex will need every ounce of skill he can muster, and tons of luck, to infiltrate the Moon Child - the Brotherhood's massive orbiting space station. If only he hadn't lost his gun...

Release: 1994

Developer: Access Software

Publisher: Access Software

Type: Adventure

Platforms: PC


This is the third 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, Overseer, and Tesla Effect.

"Under a Killing Moon" is the second of the Tex Murphy games to feature full-motion 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.



Trailblazing game design. Highly recommended.
