Sierra Discussion

Even as a Kings Quest fan, my first reaction to this was, "I hope this means tell tale will eventually get to do a Leisure Suit Larry game!" Was I alone in this? I think the humor in tell tale's games (especially the sam & max series) would fit in well with LLL. Any other Sierra games that should get this treatment?

  • Al Lowe told me personally in an email a while back that there is no way he is coming out of retirement..... But I wonder if he would take a limited roll and add some jokes or plot ideas over the phone or something.... But sadly Larry is no longer owned by the same company that the other Sierra games are owned by.
  • Quest for Glory seems like it could take Telltale in some awesome new directions. Episodic would mean you could carry your custom character through 5 parts, and they could even set up different endings depending on choices you made all through the series. Plus clunky RPG combat!
  • Leisure Suit Larry and Space Quest seem best-suited towards Telltale's comedic style. Gabriel Knight would also work great if they wanted to do something more serious.

    LSL might be a more risque venture for TT, but I feel that's a series that can stand on it's own legs without all the gratuitous sex and nudity. It's a comedy about a 40 year-old bachelor chasing girls and going on exotic vacations - and even though the male lead was sleazy, the series always had charm. Even women enjoyed the games. Build a series around that instead of turning it into another disgusting porn fantasy for men like MCL and BOB.

    Another cool idea: continue the Torin's Passage series. Al Lowe already has a five-game story arc ready for it.
  • i do not think larry was sleazy just hopelessly out of style and desperate.
  • God, I hope for Space Quest! :)

    Gah, the idea of a GK game without Jane Jensen working on it makes me grimace, especially after GK3's ending.
  • "Winnie the Pooh in the Hundred Acre Wood"

    ...It's the first adventure game I ever played, OK?! :D

    But seriously. Space Quest.

    She's freelance at the moment. There's no doubt TellTale would approach her, that's how they roll.

    I should certainly hope so.
