Growing up, one I game I was forbidden to play was Leisure Suit Larry. Of course that didn’t stop me when my parents were away. I remember sneaking on to play and wondering what I was supposed to do with a hooker.
Well, now history gets to repeat itself and I will be warning my son not to play what became to be one of my favorite point and click adventure games by the great Al Lowe.
Replay Games has secured the worldwide rights to the entire Leisure Suit Larry franchise. For ALL platforms. Yep, all. PC, MAC, XBLA, PSN, iOS, Android, Steam, On-Live, Gaikai, and all major affiliate portals.
Larry’s original classic adventure, Leisure Suit Larry In The Land Of The Lounge Lizards is the first title Al and the Replay team will revisit, resuscitate and rejuvenate. Plus, an all-new high-def game is in the pipeline with a release date of Q4 2012.
The world’s least successful lover, but highly successful adventure game hero, is back with a bang. A BIG HD BANG. Leisure Suit Larry is heading to the new generation of game platforms, a new generation of gamers, and – just maybe – a whole new series of adventures, thanks to Replay Games and Larry’s original creator, Al Lowe.
Replay Games has secured the worldwide rights to the entire Leisure Suit Larry franchise. For ALL platforms. Yep, all. PC, MAC, XBLA, PSN, iOS, Android, Steam, On-Live, Gaikai, and all major affiliate portals. Plus anything else which comes out in the near future that rocks!
Working with Al Lowe, the mastermind behind Larry’s original adventures, Replay Games can now bring back all of the Leisure Suit Larry games, reimagined and redesigned for the future!
Or create entirely new ones.
Yeah, that’s right. New ones. Yes, we’re excited, too!
Larry’s original classic adventure, Leisure Suit Larry In The Land Of The Lounge Lizards is the first title Al and the Replay team will revisit, resuscitate and rejuvenate. Plus, an all-new high-def game is in the pipeline with a release date of Q4 2012 or “as soon as it’s suitably awesome!”
Mr. Al Lowe will be working closely with the Replay Games team to ensure that the games stay faithful (unlike their lead character!) to the Leisure Suit Larry brand. No “knock offs,” no pseudo-relatives, these are the real deal.
When asked to comment, Al screamed, “Get outta here!” But after he flushed and washed his hands, he explained, “I’m totally jazzed to work with long-term friend and Sierra buddy, Paul Trowe. He’s worked tirelessly for years to get the Larry rights and return them to the hands of the Sierra ‘family.’ Working with Paul’s team ensures that the world’s favorite leisure suit-wearer remains the same guy we all learned to love a quarter-century ago. I’ll oversee the entire production of these games to ensure the highest standards and some amazing new adventures for my pal, Larry. It’s great to see my creation released from his digital dungeon!”
Paul Trowe, founder and CEO of Replay Games, agrees vehemently. “I’m honored to work with game designer-extraordinaire and total legend, Al Lowe, on one of the most best-loved and successful adventure games in history. I’ve been working to acquire the original Sierra properties for over 10 years. I can’t even begin to explain how thrilled I am to announce we’re letting Larry breathe the fresh air of freedom once more and releasing him from the clutches of corporate America. Al and I are working very closely on this, to make sure every Larry game is the best. The remake of the original Leisure Suit Larry is going to kick so much ass, the entire world will have to play it standing up. And buy new pants. And a cushion. Seriously, we’re really excited about this.”
The new generation of Larry games will be developed by Adventure-Mob and published worldwide by Replay Games. The first title will be out in Q4 2012. -Ish.
