Update #2

Wow, what an awesome first day!!!

Hey, gang, it’s me, Al Lowe. I just wanted to take a moment here shortly before midnight to tell you just how blown away I am by all your love and support! You guys are great! It looks like we’re well on our way to funding this project – and with no publisher necessary.

And, I want to assure you: every one of your comments, suggestions, and thoughts that you’ve posted,Facebooked, Tweeted, or emailed is being read and taken seriously. You do have a voice here.

But don’t stop now. I need you to help us spread the word via any means you can to as many people as possible! We even got an easy URL for you: http://kck.st/LeisureSuitLarry. Help us help Larry come back to life! Again, from the bottom of my heart: Thank YOU!

-Al

      Mr. Lowe, it's great to see you're back in a LSL project and I hope this project (and other LSL to come in the future) will get funded. I really appreciate your efforts in getting this done as well as of course I am big supporter of your previous work.

      Congratulations Mr. Lowe. It's great to see you've come out of retirement. As soon as I saw you were involved I instantly kicked in some cash.

      Thank you, Mr. Lowe! Hopefully I speak for most all when I say that there's more than a small hope that this new LSL will keep up, at least in some ways, with the sexual inflation of the last two decades. I don't think anyone would be angry if the User (not necessarily Mr. Laffer) got access to slightly steamier content throughout the game. Don't want to sound like a perv, I am, but I doubt the game would sell worse by combining new content from Mr. Lowe with a few more boobs or more. It would gently push the game into (mostly) uncharted, adult gaming territory, be awesome, and allow a whole new generation of young people to get interested in the game and buy for exactly the same reason we did years ago, the promise of sweet, sweet boobies. Do it for the boobies friends.

      Mr Lowe has been an idol of mine since I played the first Leisure Suit Larry, all the way back in the eighties. If I had the money, I'd be a top backer just to meet him in person. If there's anything I can do to help out Replay, let me know. I'll drive over and bring them lunch. :)

      As long as there's another remake/new series of Larry where funding is needed in kickstarter, I will be a backer for those projects! Please keep up the great work and I look forward to the outcome of new Larry.

      Creator Tomimt on April 4, 2012

      Replay games has anounced in the comments, that Paypal will be an option after Kickstarer is 100% filled. That's a soun practice, as with Paypal you have to shell out the money immediatly, so it would be a hassle to refund people if the goal is not met.

      I need an Larry Laffer Action figurine! How about putting ALL the backers in the credits? Maybe add another / new location in the game. Game studio or movie studio?

      I'd LOVE to see a German voice-over version, the German voice actors in Larry 6 and 7 were BRILLIANT! Especially Larry's actor, Berth Wesselmann, and the narrator Jürgen Andreas - awesome work back then!

      When I first heard about this, I jumped at the chance at donating to get this made. I've been a fan of Larry (and Sierra in general) since the early days. I'd love to see the rest (particularly 2 & 3) remade, as well.

    22. Missing_small

      Creator Tata Šika on April 3, 2012

      It's wonderful that Larry isn't butchered anymore and that you're his "quality guardian" again. Welcome back from retirement and I wish you all the luck with this but don't wait too long to give us a new Larry game. Waiting for 16 years (!) is kinda tiresome :)

      Creator Shagittarius on April 3, 2012

      I fully support the remake, I would have preferred a new adventure though. I think you would have been able to get a bigger budget faster if it was a completely new game rather than a remake.

    25. Gianni-dalerta.small

      Creator Gianni D'Alerta on April 3, 2012

      Very excited that you are back in action. The Leisure Suit Larry games have been suffering with out you!! Remember going to Babbages and not being able to purchase your games and then when I got to college, met my wife and we played Love for Sail together. 15 years later we are still together and whenever I see the games it reminds me of that time. And also of my teen years trying trying to trick my parents into buying me a copy of the earlier games!!

    26. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Bryan Henderson on April 3, 2012

      Al, if this one goes over well, can we get remakes of ALL the LSL games? I would love to go through them all again! Hell, maybe even those go over well, you could do another sequel.

    27. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Mike Weiner on April 3, 2012

      Larry Laffer Lives! Let's leave little light to those who shun the ways of Larry. Let's let Larry's lilting lyrical life lift us all to new heights of Larry-ness. Good luck to the team!!!

      Although my contribution isn't huge, I'm proud to be backing this project! LSL games (in my mind) are the essence of late 80's/early 90's adventure gaming! Larry deserves to live...in HD!

      Question a lot of boards don't support any other embedding then from Vimeo or Youtube. Is the video availble trough youtube?

    35. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Carlos Silva on April 3, 2012

      I agree that a new game would definitely be preferable, but to be honest it is already a big risk and it'd take a huge effort into making a new game with nothing to back on. Maybe it'd be a good idea to have sort of a director's cut. (See reissue of Broken Sword)

      I hope it serves as a stepping stone into a revival of the series with new content.

    36. Naisaika.small

      Creator Sarah Milton on April 3, 2012

      I love the idea of some all new Larry games that you, Al, have created, but I would ADORE a complete collection of the old games.. 1-7 .. I loved all of those!

      As for making a LSL 4.. naaah. Not having the 4 is a cool lil novelty!

      I hope it's being heard loud and clear that the vast majority prefer a NEW game!! I backed $25 but for a new game I would double, triple or even quadruple that amount.

      Replaying an adventure quest is just not quite challenging, nor is it intriguing...

We are striking 50, and only 50, signed and numbered lithographs of custom Larry artwork. For a $1000 pledge, you will receive one of these 50 signed/numbered lithographs, PLUS one of a limited edition (again, only 50) “Girls of Leisure Suit Larry” calendars, again with custom artwork, and again numbered and signed by Al Lowe.

    Pervert’s Edition: So let’s say you want to pledge $2,500, but you can’t see yourself ever setting foot in a disco, real or virtual. We can’t blame you for that, but we’ll still make you famous. One of Larry’s most memorable scenes is when he attempts to buy a “lubber” at a convenience store, and the customers jump out from behind the aisles and scream “Pervert!” at poor, demented Larry. We’ll make YOUR face into one of those pervert-yelling patrons! You’ll also receive all the premiums from the Signed Edition reward tier and below.

    Age Verification Edition: Here’s our last unique pledge, and then we’ll shut up about the unique pledges and start talking real money. At the beginning of the game, we have famously used a bank of random questions called the “Age Verification” quiz to keep out players too young -- or too tasteful -- to play. We will use YOUR NAME in the bank of quiz questions. You will end up in every walk-through in every gaming website across the world! This is a one-of-a-kind offer; only one person will be able to claim this reward. Plus, you will get all the premiums from the Signed Edition reward tier and below!

You will be flown (domestic airfare only) to Seattle to enjoy lunch, dinner, or a morning-after breakfast with Leisure Suit Larry’s Mommy’s Baby Daddy, Mr. Al Lowe himself. He’ll sign whatever you want him to sign (except IRS forms and blank checks), answer all your questions about life, tell you some dirty jokes, and, best of all, he’ll do something that he’s never done before in the history of the world: he’ll pick up the check! We’ll put you up overnight and send you back home happy, fed, and loaded down with all the goodies from the Signed Edition reward tier and below. We’ll even give you the entire chocolate factory for your very own…oh, wait a minute, that’s a whole different licensed property.
