Old Sierra dudes

Too bad your company can't hook up with a few ex-Sierra game creators. I would love it if someone talented like Al Lowe could get a good company to support his ideas.

  • A Leisure Suit Sam and Max series does not seem out of order, but very unlikely seeing as Max doesn't like girls.

    DO it... it's not that hard. Plus he always answers to fan mail. :)
  • I think having Al Lowe in the creative department would be a win-win situation.

    Mick and Keith, Dave and Eddie, you know? A 97%-97% miraculous deal.

    Try it, the man seems eager to work on a game again.

    Cheers!

    That would be something....Al Lowe. Then maybe we would get a new, REAL Leisure Suit Larry game for PC.
    Or think about it: "Leisure Suit Larry"-episodes!!

    That would be something alright, but Al doesn't own the rights to Larry and VU is actively using the IP by producing (mediocre) games based on Larry.

    Still, Al's humor plus all the other creative guys at Telltale.... pure win.... I hope it happens sometime.
  • what are you trying to do here? turn telltale into the who-is-who of adventure game history? don't get me wrong, it's great to see that so many of the veterans from the good times are getting new projects right now...but having the ex-sierra and the ex-lucasarts guys in one team/company? weren't they like arch-enemies back in the day?
    also, you shouldn't always rely on the old, but rather find some new talent...

    Though we've got some guys from "back in the day"... or whatever (Grossman, Stemmle, Chuck), our design team of late has also consisted of Brendan, Mark, Heather, Greg, and more recently Andy and Jake (not me, this guy). So I think we're doing decently in that department! The forums tend to gravitate to being excited about names they already know (for obvious reasons), but neither Sam & Max Season Two or Strong Bad, for instance, are led by people who were design leads at another game company.

    We actually keep the "back in the day" guys tied up in a closet. We let them come out and interview from time to time just to get some press.
