Update #21

We're on the home stretch!!!

Hey gang!!  Paul Trowe here.  Well, I *was* in bed today recouperating from being "on" the last 30 days for 24 hours/day until Josh & Al called and said "Paul, get out of bed...we have this brilliant idea for the last 24 hours...we want to do a Larry Blow Out".  So, with every last piece of energy I had, I got out of bed, stopped by the local coffee shop and fueled up with caffeine, got in to the office and uploaded Al's video.  Not five minutes after I uploaded the video it's already been watched over 115 times.  You guys are fast, man!!!

Ok, so...here's Josh & Al's awesome idea.  We hope you like it.  We're dropping some of the super high tiers by a couple of bucks to help you guys get to the $650k mark and get yourselves another girl and more story for the game.  We're doing everything we can at this end, so please help us out and do everything you can at your end, ok?  And in the meantime, I'll stay up with you until the very last minute...pushing and shoving our way to $650k to get you guys what you want.  I just hope to God I don't have a heart attack after this thing is over.  I still have to get to E3 in June.  Ugh.  :)

Oh, sorry...one last thing.  Here's a link to show the totals of Kickstarter & PayPal so you guys know how close we are to the $650k mark.  It updates every 5 minutes and is on the Eastern time zone.  Huge shout out to Britton for making this work at the last minute.  http://www.replaygamesinc.com/leisure-suit-larry-paypal-donations/

Let's do it gang...one last push!!!

-Paul

      Congratulations! Your passion was infectious. You all ran a very smart campaign, and I am looking forward to an equally smart (and filthy!) game in the fall. Can't wait!

      Impressive.
      I must say I didn't expect this, I must be polluted by EA. Just imagine So many people wanting the real Larry back. :D
      I can only hope that you keep the old tradition and make sure that Larry can die In horrible and funny ways, preferably, when leaving the bar after one to many drinks

      @John I don't think they can change the prices for those specific tiers on Kickstarter, because it doesn't let them. You might have to go through PayPal, so I would check with someone at Replay to clarify that.

    39. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Eric Avedissian on May 1, 2012

      I'd like to also thank Al, Paul, Josh and everyone else for being so positive. This is the first Kickstarter project I participated in, mainly because I enjoyed playing all of the Leisure Suit Larry games. At first, I contributed $75, then increased it to $100 and finally $150.69. I really want to see these games remade with Al Lowe at the helm. After suffering through Magna Cum Laude, it looks like we're getting our old Larry back. Kudos to everyone who pledged. Leisure Suit Larry is not a titillating porn feat and never was. Leisure Suit Larry is about humor and comedy. He's a doofus who the Fates conspire against, yet in the end, winds up with the girl. Along the way, he's tortured and tormented and we enjoy his awkward journey.
      I know Replay Games will produce a wonderfully funny adventure game. I'm glad I could play a small part in funding it.

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.

These banners are signed by Al Lowe, and each contains an exclusive typo that makes it highly unlikely that anybody can (or would ever want to) duplicate them!

    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.

For a $5,000 pledge, we’ll immortalize your dog in the game. Whenever Larry gets…uh…refreshed by the dog outside, that’ll be YOUR dog! (Please, oh please, let it be a Shih Tzu!)

We’ll use your name and image to recreate you as a down-on-your-luck, staggering, sloppy drunk…and knowing you, that’ll be a cinch for our artists.

    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!

We will feature your name and likeness as one of the people in the Lost Wages disco. We are only going to turn 6 of the disco patrons into Kickstarter pledgers, so this is a VERY limited offer and will not be available in any other pledge reward tier.

You can be the broke gambler wandering the streets of Lost Wages wearing nothing but a barrel! We will use your name and image as the Barrel Man (or Woman), and we promise not to show any of the naughty bits (“unless,” as Kathy Bates always says, “the script really calls for it organically”).

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.
