Tesla Effect

What is Tesla Effect?

Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure is the sixth game in the Tex Murphy series of detective adventure games, developed by Big Finish Games and published by Atlus.

Overview

During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named TeslaEffect.exe. The setup package generally installs about 39 files and is usually about 16.41 MB (17,207,276 bytes).
