(re: re: LSL without Al???)
Al Lowe is awesome. In the 15 or so years he did games for Sierra, they always exceeded sales estimates, and came in on, or below, budget.
Al was very unique at Sierra in that he was one of very few designers who also managed the development of their own projects. On the early games Al even did some of the coding. On MANY occasions I tried to persuade him to take over all of development as VP Engineering.
Why Sierra elected not to involve him in the development of the latest Larry game is totally confusing to me. I’m sure someday I’ll hear their reasoning, and maybe I’ll go “aha.. that makes sense” .. but, I’m not betting on it.
