(re: re: re: Rumor Is a New LSL Is In Development, But I Have a Question….) Hey all! I got some great news (and some bad news)!! I got an email back from Sierra (guess I had the address right all along) and the email confirmed a new Leisure Suit Larry is in development!! He said there wasn’t any other information he could give at the time, so he didn’t (he didn’t say whether or not it was a adventure game, but I hope it is). He also mentioned Space Quest (this is the bad news). He said a new SQ was being looked at, but was shelved due to low interest. While that’s bad for Space Quest, I’m still happy about a new LSL. If the game does well, it may lead to more adventure games from Sierra, like maybe a new King’s Quest, Police Quest, Quest for Glory, Gabriel Knight, and Space Quest. Anyway, here’s the message he sent and the one I sent.
As for the Quest games, Space Quest was being looked at, but got put on
the shelf as tests showed there wasn’t much interest. I do know the LSL
is in development, but don’t have much more info at this time than that.

Subject: New Adventure Games?
Hi there! I’ve been hearing some recent rumblings that Sierra is working on a new Leisure Suit Larry game. I know this goes against the whole “since it’s not announced, don’t talk about it” policy that’s been carried so many times before, but is it possible for you to give some confirmation that a new LSL game is in development? I’ve been a fan since the early days, and a new game in the series would really make my day! If the game is in production, I hope it stays true to the series’ roots as an adventure game
and I hope Al Lowe (the creator of LSL) can be involved somehow! Even if a new LSL game isn’t in development, I would like to throw my support behind a new Larry game. Same goes for King’s Quest, Space Quest, Quest for Glory, Gabriel Knight, and Police Quest. I believe all these series deserve another sequel (and many more sequels to come!) as they represent some of the best the adventure genre has to offer. The adventure genre is starting to make a comeback (due to the high number of recently announced adventure games, even from Lucasarts!) and I hope Sierra begins to contribute new adventure games to the market, as they use too.
Thanks for your time,
