Hey fellas! I bet i don't have to lecture you on who Al Lowe is and what he has done, but... here he is, in the flesh, fully animated and giving a brief insight into how it all began for him and Larry:

Appears he IS in fact quite a funny fellow, and not just a cynical pretender. I wouldn't mind having a few glasses of beer with the guy! Would you?

Yep, he always seemd a very genial person to me too and I think it also show in his games. As immature as the Larry games might be, I think it's one of the few Sierra series where the game laughs with the player (Space Quest also comes close but it's a bit too cynical to me).

As for the video for the Kickstarter: I am yet undecided whether I am glad this Remake didn't work out.

Dear Sir, I object strongly with the last thread, and the next post.

Actually, i wouldn't say Larry series is that immature. Although funny and exaggerated to a degree, but it does in fact provide you with a lot of valid material regarding certain life aspects ;) To know THAT, one has to have gone through it himself ;)

Anyway, my favorite was Quest for Glory. Those were the best days for me, indeed. Most fabulous adventure...

Well, the Larry series can get quite childish at times, but as far as the first three games are concerned, I think there is an interesting development, a certain maturation process. Larry shows some character growth and playing a female character in the third part, was an ingenious idea, that let you see some things from a totally different perspective. Personally I like the second game the best, because it does not solely rely on cheap innuendos.

Quest for Glory is also my favorite Sierra Quest-series, mainly because it featured non-linear story-telling and had some nice role playing mechanics on top of that. It was also the first adventure game I played and on the long run it got me into Fantasy and Pen&Paper role playing.
