Here's a project that may be worth your attention (and even money). The creator of that swinging, loveable loser from the early days of adventure gaming wants to bring Larry back in a retooled version of the original and needs only $500,000 to do it. Pledges start at $15.
If you played any of these games in the late 80s and into the 90s/00s, you'll definitely want to at least check out the video of Al Lowe (the creator of the game) on the kickstarter page. It's pretty funny. But here's the basic idea.
The team that created Leisure Suit Larry 1 has been reassembled to create a 2012 "Reloaded" version. Al Lowe, Josh Mandel, Sabine Duvall, and Leslie Balfour have teamed up with Replay Games to form what we call "The Dream Team" of adventure games. We'll be making Leisure Suit Larry 1-7 and keeping you guys informed every step of the way. If this game is successful then we can bring you guys the rest of the Leisure Suit Larry games (and maybe even Leisure Suit Larry 4: The Case Of The Missing Floppies)!
To date, I've not contributed to any kickstarter campaign, but I'll be watching this one closely.
...help us make LEISURE SUIT LARRY IN THE LAND OF THE LOUNGE LIZARDS: the 25th ANNIVERSARY EDITION a perverted, hilarious reality. Kick in now, and stake your claim in gaming history.
Could be fun.
