    Al Lowe's involved, cool. I too was a fan of the series, except for the recent nephew in college one that was more loading screen than game.

    there were actually 2 of those.

    the first three are great, but then the series went downhill.

    actually, i didnt play the second one much either

    I liked Love for Sail, and its side games and shit. I used to have a collection of them but I lost the book where you needed to enter in the code to actually enter the game.

    Kind of on-topic, but I'm getting sick of fucking kickstarters on the Internet.

    Are you talking about Love for Sail or the college one? Now I want to play Larry and Space Quest.

    That's from the standpoint on why Kickstarters are good. I'm talking about the unintended consequences about Kickstarter, mainly every schmuck out there thinks they have a great idea but don't have cash so they have a Kickstarter and start soliciting cash from people to get it developed.

    The concept is great. The reality is fucking grating.

    At least Al Lowe has some credibility. It's not like, well, Bestest Bow Maker Ever.

    I remembered the problem with the Larry games on my computer. I kept getting compatibility errors.

    Fair point. I'm just tired of seeing every day something about a new Kickstarter. 90% of them are bullshit. 10% need to be done.

    I loved most of the Sierra games back in the day.

    One of my all time faves is "Laura Bow and the Dagger of Amon Ra"

    Al Lowe wasn't involved in that one. I wonder if the copyright lapsed like Wasteland did.

    I'm only funding games I'm interested in. Wasteland and Grim Fandago are some of my most favorite game so I'll chip in some bucks to get games like this made. I liked the original LSL games so I'll kick in for this too.

    Sierra games were fucking awesome. King's Quest, Space Quest, Gabriel Knight (!)... They were touchstones.

    You do realize that Kickstarter approves projects and not every asshole who comes up with an idea gets approval to solicit donations?

    Well, that's good. Wouldn't want some random asshole soliciting for ideas.

    Still, hear about way too many kickstarters on blogs I frequent. It's a weird fad.

    Was reading the Faq on the kickstarter site. If this game is successful then Lowe will be able to make the original 4th sequel he had planned.

    Do you mean the third sequel, which would be the fourth part?

    Because Larry 6 would be the fourth sequel :p


    It also says they may remake the other games in the series, or do a whole new game.

    I'm guessing he had the series mapped out and the publisher pushed for the next one instead.

    He felt that larry 1-3 made for a good trilogy (they all three link together) and that his idea for the next one didn't link up well, so he skipped 4 and made 5 instead.
