Replay Games and Leisure Suit Larry creator Al Lowe have managed to raise $107,959 of the $500,000 funding goal from 2,806 backers on Kickstarter for its Leisure Suit Larry in the Lands of the Lounge Lizards remake. Al Lowe, the original creator of the comical adult themed adventure game for Sierra, posted a thank-you message to the Kickstarter community for its early support of the project. Of course, $100,000 is a long way from $500,000 but it's a promising start. The crowd funding campaign has 28 more days to go. Here's what Lowe had to say in an update to the Kickstarter page:
Hey, gang, it’s me, Al Lowe. I just wanted to take a moment here shortly before midnight to tell you just how blown away I am by all your love and support! You guys are great! It looks like we’re well on our way to funding this project – and with no publisher necessary.
And, I want to assure you: every one of your comments, suggestions, and thoughts that you’ve posted, Facebooked, Tweeted, or emailed is being read and taken seriously. You do have a voice here.
But don’t stop now. I need you to help us spread the word via any means you can to as many people as possible! We even got an easy URL for you: http://kck.st/LeisureSuitLarry. Help us help Larry come back to life! Again, from the bottom of my heart: Thank YOU!
We will continue to follow this story as it develops. Thanks to DorthLous for the tip.
