Sierra has now officially announced the new Larry game. It looks like the game won’t be about Larry Laffer. Instead the game will star Larry Laffer’s nephew, Larry Lovage.
This doesn’t necessary have to be a bad thing, because the press release does seem to indicate that the game will in fact be very true to the previous Larry games, at least humor when it comes to humor.

We are also putting together a new “Magna Cum Laude” section at LarryLives.com which will contain as much information about the new game as possible. And the address is

(re: Larry 8 officially announced!!!) I’m very excited about this. Hearing that the original LSL wouldn’t feature in this new game had me worried for a moment, but after seeing the trailer, I’ve come to the conclusion that this may very well turn out to be a great game.
Go Sierra! 🙂

(re: re: Larry 8 officially announced!!!) So it’s finally going to happen is it? I just read about this on another forum. I spent like 20minutes trying to find out as much as I could from sites. The only thing that worries me, I need to find out the system requirements when it comes out. My PC can’t run everything at good speeds and those graphics might slow down. Maybe I’m better of going after the PS2 version….since it’s been said that it won’t be toned down. I’ll be watching this closely you can count on that!
LONG LIVE LARRY! 😉

(re: re: re: Larry 8 officially announced!!!) Hi,
I think, the game will not be so good, as the old ones, which was designed by Al.
Can anyone tell me, where I can get the trailer ? The screenshots looks not so well, but it seems that there was many developed till this time!

(re: re: re: re: re: Larry 8 officially announced!!!) For those worrying about the new LSL not being as good as the old ones because it’s not made by Al… Well, Al Lowe isn’t God, and while I know Al is a very humorous man, I am sure that whoever is/are designing MCL are too.
Besides, I myself think that the last three LSL games weren’t as good as the first three, so in a way I’m actually glad to see someone take a look at the brand with a fresh mind.

(Larry 8 officially announced!!!)
Perhaps you should check this out (scroll down a bit)!!! Although nothing’s fixed yet, this is veeeery promising!!!Well, perhaps Al’s no god, but he sure can be a cunning fox at times.

( re: Larry 8 officially announced!!!) I think for nostalgic purposes, it would be awesome to have Al in on the Larry game. I also believe that there are plenty of people in the world with a distorted sense of humor, and that a funny Larry game is possible without him. I think the game looks promising so far. It may not be a classic adventure, but I am open to new ideas. Eventually the gaming industry will experience a revolution again, after all, is that not what Ken and Roberta did in the first place?
I am appreciative that Sierra was open to making another Larry game. Of course, you could say that they should have been doing this all along. We will just have to wait and see how this turns out. We always have the fan games too.

(re: Larry 8 officially announced!!!) Doern,
You know that the game has been announced right? I am just not too clear as to what you are referring to.

(re: re: Larry 8 officially announced!!!) What I’m curious to know is: is Jan Rabinson (I think I spelled his name correctly) going to provide Larry’s voice again. It would make sense that, in this day and age, everyone in the game will have some sort of vocal associated with them; it’s almost unthinkable that Jan wouldn’t be asked to add his voice.
Anyone know anything about this?

(re: re: Larry 8 officially announced!!!)
I’m sure he’s referring to Al’s admission that he is in negotiations with Vivendi to participate in Magna Cum Laude….

I see it now. Over at community.sierra.com on the Larry board, one of the game developers is doing a Q & A. He has answered some good questions so far. It may make some of you feel better.
