Leisure Suit Larry HD remake takes to Kickstarter

Last year we heard Austin's Replay Games was preparing Leisure Suit Larry to recieve the HD treatment. But when you've been a fortysomething sad-sack for some 25 years, things don't just spring right back into action without a little time and coaxing, you know. So now Replay's jumping on the Kickstarter bandwagon (the studio's words, not ours) and offering you – yes, you, sitting right there with the spare $5,000 cluttering up your living room – the chance to appear in-game in exchange for funding.

Pledge rewards for contributing to Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards: Reloaded range from $15, which gets you a download link when the game's finished, all the way up to absurd $50,000 rewards involving Las Vegas weekends and your name as an Easter egg where Sierra founder Ken Williams' would once have gone. You can even offer $5000 for the honor of appearing in-game and railing against the ills of contraception! We'd like to see your cute crowd-funded indie adventure do that. (Don't actually do that: have fun but stay safe, no glove no love, mmkay, etc).

    if you want to get the game because you want to experience it, then you should find a copy of the original, an HD remake would (probably) not do it justice, plus you shouldn't be encouraging this type of game being remade, just some thoughts.

    I posted that as a reply to shawksta, then my browser freaked out, just for clarification

    No, no and NO. I remember these games from when I was a kid. While I adored Space Quest, King's Quest and even Police Quest I remember trying all of the LSLs and hating damn near all of them. Why did KQ and SQ get fan made modern updates for free while these people are asking for an outrageous amount of money? I think this whole kickstarter thing is going to lead to shady dealings and a lot of dumb people getting taken advantage of.

    Wow, thats.....interesting, but $5,000 funding, eh. Wonder when the HD versions coming out, been wanting to play this game.

    "been wanting to play this game." ...Why?

    I agree. Speaking from personal experience the story is idiotic, the jokes fall flat and it's 2012. You can easily type "boobs" into google instead of pissing away hours to get a pixel nipple if your lucky.

    oh, I know its horrible, thats exactly why i want to play it. It has nothing to do getting a "Pixel nipple", this is one of those games whose experience you have to have, even if its horrible, that is, if its on a reasonable price, its not something i WANT WANT, its just something that could be worth seeing how garbage it is.

    If you have money and time to waste like that, then by all means go for it.

    Im not Purposely intending too, if comes out pretty cheap on Steam, its worth a try. Despite negative reviews, I bought I am Alive because it seemed interesting to me, It was pretty good despite its obvious flaws and the 3-4 was hating on it a bit too much.
