      I think Al Lowe would have prefered a fan game over VU’s travesty

      I don’t have anything against fan games… (re: my recent comment re: Jane Jensen)… some have turned out very well and other upcoming fan games also look quite promising. I suspect that you’re right. The perspective of the original designers on fan games is always very interesting. There was Jane Jensen’s response… Roberta’s response to fan games was generally good I recall though Ken thinks that fans should put that creative energy toward their own, original efforts… Josh Mandel seems to enjoy fan projects, since he contributed to Space Quest 7. Back to Al Lowe… has he ever gone on record about fan games? I think he commented positively about AGDI’s remakes at one point. Leisure Suit Larry is definitely neglected in the fan project community.

      I’m not sure if he’s made any remarks about it. I just honestly think that if given a choice between fans who really knew LSL making a game and VU making another Larry game, he would obviously prefer the former. He has gone on record with his opinions about LSL:MCL

      I never even played LSL:MCL. I thought about it, but then as more and more info and screenshots and vids and the like were released, it just seemed like it had no redeeming qualities at all. So yeah, I agree. I think it would be great to see a Larry fan project.

      MCL was funny, although a lot more crude than actual LSL games.  It’s just the gameplay was horrible and it can’t be considered an adventure game at all.  It’s just a series of mindless mini-games that you play over and over.  There’s only like 5 of these mini-games and 2 or 3 of them you play all the time throughout the game, while the other few you only play once in a while.  It does have a lot of inside LSL Larry jokes, like one of the bars is a 3-D representation of the bar from LSL1.

      Has Al Lowe ever stated why he stopped using Passionate Patty after LSL 5. I would have to assume the reason would be because tying Larry down limited storyline options. I also always wondered storyline wise what the reason behind her disapperance was…now that would make an interesting fan game. I wonder how long it would take VU to realize that Passionate Patty was one of their game characters…
