Today Replay Games and Al Lowe announced that they will use Kickstarter to fund their remake of the original Leisure Suit Laryy game! Patrick made a news article about this a while back.
Now it seems like they want to use Kickstarter instead of going aorund to publishers to get money to make it. I bet it's a hard game to convince a big publisher to fund because of it's raunchy nature. Adventure games seem to be returning in a big fashion. it's not just the genre itself but it's the people that originaly worked with the games. I think it's super cool. First I squeled loud! Then I realized that it was only a remake. BUT then I saw that they have the goal to reamake all of the games and got hyped again! And finally... they really want to do a whole new game, mabey the infamous fourth one! And that ...I can't tell you how excited I am for that possibility. The Leisure Suit Larry games out some of my favorite adventure games from my Amiga and PC days so this is really neat stuff.
But as I first said. This is only a Kickstarter for the remake of the first game. That's cool and all but for me it's more about the possibility of 5 to 7 and a brand new one that is really exciting.
EDIT: Crap...I fucked up the headline. Is there a way to change that?
