And he’s coming to YOUR favorite platform soon. In HD!
Austin, Texas, October 10, 2011. The world’s least successful lover, but highly successful adventure game hero, is back with a bang. A BIG HD BANG. Leisure Suit Larry is
heading to the new generation of game platforms, a new generation of
gamers, and – just maybe – a whole new series of adventures, thanks to
Replay Games and Larry’s original creator, Al Lowe.
Replay Games has secured the worldwide rights to the entire Leisure Suit Larry franchise. For ALL platforms.
Yep, all. PC, MAC, XBLA, PSN, iOS, Android, Steam, On-Live, Gaikai, and
all major affiliate portals. Plus anything else which comes out in the
near future that rocks!
Working with Al Lowe, the mastermind behind Larry’s original adventures, Replay Games can now bring back all of the Leisure Suit Larry games, reimagined and redesigned for the future!
Or create entirely new ones.
Yeah, that’s right. New ones. Yes, we’re excited, too!
Larry’s original classic adventure, Leisure Suit Larry In The Land Of The Lounge Lizards is
the first title Al and the Replay team will revisit, resuscitate and
rejuvenate. Plus, an all-new high-def game is in the pipeline with a
release date of Q4 2012 or “as soon as it’s suitably awesome!”
Al Lowe will be working closely with the Replay Games team to ensure
that the games stay faithful (unlike their lead character!) to the Leisure Suit Larry brand. No “knock offs,” no pseudo-relatives, these are the real deal.
asked to comment, Al screamed, “Get outta here!” But after he flushed
and washed his hands, he explained, “I’m totally jazzed to work with
long-term friend and Sierra buddy, Paul Trowe. He’s worked tirelessly
for years to get the Larry rights and return them to the
hands of the Sierra ‘family.’ Working with Paul’s team ensures that the
world’s favorite leisure suit-wearer remains the same guy we all learned
to love a quarter-century ago. I’ll oversee the entire production of
these games to ensure the highest standards and some amazing new
adventures for my pal, Larry. It’s great to see my creation released from his digital dungeon!”
Trowe, founder and CEO of Replay Games, agrees vehemently. “I’m honored
to work with game designer-extraordinaire and total legend, Al Lowe, on
one of the most best-loved and successful adventure games in history.
I’ve been working to acquire the original Sierra properties for over 10
years. I can’t even begin to explain how thrilled I am to announce we’re
letting Larry breathe the fresh air of freedom once more and
releasing him from the clutches of corporate America. Al and I are
working very closely on this, to make sure every Larry game is the best. The remake of the original Leisure Suit Larry
is going to kick so much ass, the entire world will have to play it
standing up. And buy new pants. And a cushion. Seriously, we’re really
excited about this.”
The new generation of Larry games will be developed by Adventure-Mob and published worldwide by Replay Games. The first title will be out in Q4 2012. -Ish.
