Leisure Suit Larry using Kickstarter to hit on everybody at once
14,081 backers pledged $655,182 to help bring this project to life.

We shipped PC, Mac, and Linux! Please read this!!

Posted by Replay Games (Creator)

In case you didn’t read the earlier emails we’ve sent you, you should know: WE SHIPPED!!

Maybe not every platform (although we sure tried) but people have been playing the PC, Mac and Linux games for a week. You should be too!

That said, Apple has been sitting on our game for two weeks now and without telling us anything. We have no idea when it will appear in the Apple Store. But when it does, we promise to let you know immediately!

The Android version is suffering from the typical “way too many different versions of Android” syndrome, but is making progress. Here, too, we’ll tell you right away.

Update? Already?

Yes, we plan to release an updated version of the game very soon with several improvements:

  • Language selection option in the control panel. The game currently uses your operating system’s language setting. We’re going to let you decide what language you prefer.
  • Two new languages: Polish and Russian.
  • Scoring: We're implementing scoring because so many of you miss it – and because you need to know just how much of the game you did NOT see!
  • Facebook and Twitter updates: But only if you want to!
  • A few little bug fixes that we missed.

Tech Support Forum

We have created a Tech Support forum at

If you have any problems, please check here first. Probably someone else has already figured out a fix for it.

Linux Support

If you are a Linux or Mac guru, we need your help! Could you please jump on the new forum (above) and help your Linux and Mac friends? We’re a bunch of Windows people here at Replay Games and neither Linux nor Mac is our strong suit.

Tell Us How We Did

We’ve created a Customer Service form at so you can tell us how much fun you’re having, and/or if you’re having troubles with the game. As you can imagine, we're swamped, but we’re trying our best to help everyone. We'd appreciate it if you'd help us by pointing others to the form, too. It's all about helping Larry have a great release!


Reddit AMA

Al Lowe will do another Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Saturday, July 6th, at 1:00 p.m. EDT. Join us as we discuss making Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded and the whole Kickstarter experience. Our AMA is at

Thanks everyone! It’s been a crazy week around here

      They would like to make a new game but Codemasters who owns the Leisure Suit Larry licesne has only allowed them to do remakes. As it is they wouldn't fund this game because they didn't think anyone would buy it (this kickstarter success sure showed those guys).

      They have already said this a long time ago.

      @Joseph: I don't think so. "Only" the Steam and DRM-free desktop versions were mentioned as rewards.

    3. Joseph Villalobos on

      Do we get the iOS version too?

    4. Tom Hammerheart on

      Perhaps you should learn to read your email before calling something a scam?

      I have never received my Steam key either. How to those of us who helped support this get the game? I have backed a few Kickstarter games and have as yet to get any of them. Beginning to think Kickstarter is a scam for people to get money.

    6. Andre Elijah on

      Never received a Steam key either. Would love to play it - who should I be emailing?

    7. N. A. Kasper on

      I backed the project and never got my email :-(

      Was the $5 backer reward released yet? I don't recall getting any emails about it

    10. Anthony on

      Ok, so I played it, and I loved it. So... now there's a promise I was made that I still want kept!

      At the end of LSL7 I was promised a new LSL8, I'm still waiting! Please make this game ASAP already!

    11. Kyriakos Koursaris on

      I'm sorry, but I can't seem to find any email from your part that contains a download link or Steam key! Please help.

    12. Eric Betancourt on

      16:10 Support plz!

    13. Michael Hartmann

      @Stephen: Okay, so you have the key to create the backer account, right? After you created the account, you should be able to sign in at the top right of the Replay website and get all your downloads there, including the Steam key.

    14. Stephen Cena on

      @Michael Hartmann - I got the soundtrack from BandCamp. I've requested another key with the link provided but I get the same thing:

      -The screen tells me I didn't donate enough to get a T-shirt (this is true).
      -It asks for a shipping address, which its claimed has been verified.
      -There is a Submit Information button.

      Is the key supposed to be the same one to use in Steam or some other digital distribution method? I still don't have a physical copy of the game either.

      Thank you.

      Nice. I've got no key... No Mail... Why?

      So, how do I get my game?
      I pledged 15$ but no link has been sent to me...

    17. Michael Hartmann

      @Stephen: Did you get the soundtrack from Replay or from Bandcamp? If you got it from Replay, simply go there again and you should be able to download the game now.
      Otherwise check your e-mails from the end of August 2012 for a mail containing your backer key and go here . If you can't find the key, there is an option to request a new key.

    18. Stephen Cena on

      I haven't received any information on getting my digital copy for backing. I did get to give my mailing address for a physical copy of the game. I was able to get my copy of the soundtrack.

      Hmm. Now that I posted my two "lost e-mail" tries arrived at once. Glad someone's looking in on the weekend!

    20. Michael Hartmann

      @Leonard: That is weird. Have you contacted Replay about this? Their customer service uses a different e-mail address than the one used for the backer reward notifications. Or you could contact them through Kickstarter.

    21. Missing avatar

      Leonard Pitre on

      Yes. I have anti-spam and anti-virus on the account disabled. It's on a subdomain I have the admin rights for. As far as I know there's no anti-spam measures upstream.

    22. Michael Hartmann

      @Leonard: Have you checked the spam settings? My provider has a standard setting that automatically removes spam instead of moving it to a spam folder. In that case, you wouldn't be able to find mails that are considered spam because they simply get deleted.

      I don't know about Maor Ezer but I've never received a single e-mail from Replay Games (not counting updates through Kickstarter). Even when I go to the site and punch in my e-mail address and it says it's sent, nothing comes in. No spam, no nothing.

    24. Michael Hartmann

      @Maor: Go to and sign in with the account you were asked to create a few months ago. After you are signed in, you will see download links to every digital reward in your tier. If you didn't create the account yet, go to first.

    25. Slamdance on

      @Michael Loftis, there is a way to force the game to specific display settings albeit not a very clean one. As it will probably break new features from working correctly (language select) and has some side effects I won't give full instructions on how to do it, but will only tell how the workaround works.

      The display settings (among other things) are written to the windows registry after you change them. The problem is, that when you start the game, the display settings are reset and the default settings are written to the registry.

      So to work around the problem you can remove the write permissions from the registry key these settings are stored in and the game can't reset the settings anymore.
      As a side effect you cant' change in game volume / subtitle / etc settings and the age verification questions are the same each time you run LSLR and start a new game.

      WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall Windows. There is no guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

      From all the million emails, I still can't understand how I download the game??!
      pls help

      "Scoring: We're implementing scoring because so many of you miss it – and because you need to know just how much of the game you did NOT see!"

      Masterstroke! :P The one thing I was missing, and the exact reason why!

    28. Jeroen Dekkers

      The ideas behind the resolution have been 4:3 and 16:9 support. The Mac should have higher resolution options than there are available now. On the forum there are a few threads about this going right now.

      It would be nice to get 16:10 support for Mac sine macs have 16:10 display.

      Michael Loftis on

      Would it be possible to get the Windows version (maybe the issue exists in others?) to remember it's display settings?

    31. Michael Andrews on

      It would be nice to include some sort of ending bonus (like Larry 7 did) to those who manage to get all the points in the scoring system. This would certainly give a reason to play through the game all the way again. I felt like I really took my time getting through the game, but I'm sure I missed some stuff.

    32. Tue

      Nice start with the update - hope you get time to fix the other details missing too later on :)

    33. Leroy LaFrance on

      The slots and blackjack machines (VLT's) really need a max bet button. 1 button to bet all your money.

    34. Michael Hartmann

      Yay! I missed the scoring. Glad you're bringing it back. And I'm looking forward to the ability to choose the language without changing the system language or using an app.

    35. Michael Camacho

      This game needs Steam Trading Cards xD

      Fantastic work, folks. Great idea setting up support forums. Again, thanks heaps for the very fine Linux version which works so well. I only miss being able to play it in a window.

      Woooooooooooooooohooooooooooooooooooo - waiting for my package.....i want my condom :P

      Rewards and Collectors edition ship date please.

      Facebook and Twitter updates: But only if you want to! <-- Well automatic no from me for marketing I am playing a particular game. The achievements already do this for Steam.

      “way too many different versions of Android”

      why not support only 4.x devices (ICS and above) ? this should address half of your problem, plus using the proper resources per device group/density should be straight forward with unity.

    42. FightingFurball on

      The game is definitely great but hell...
      I was nearly shitting myself when Al came out of the pool like a chestburster :)

      Scoring Feature: I like seeing my score when I finish a game, but when I'm playing a game, I hate seeing the fraction of all of the steps I've completed. I hope this feature can be toggled on and off.

      Hey guys,

      When we released the game we provided the following guide on how to get your game.…

      Same here. I saw the game on GOG and got confused that I hadn't received a download link

    48. Ian Neufeld on

      I'm not sure if I missed an e-mail somewhere along the way ... but I haven't gotten any magical download codes or anything yet for the game :(

      I did get my soundtrack download though! Just ... game is missing?
