Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Leisure Suit Larry is back.... in the worst possible hands
Anyone see IGN's interview with Executive Producer John Melchior? He's making a new Leisure Suit Larry game. And from this interview I suspect the earth will open up and shallow us all for allowing it be:
I'll start by admitting something embarrassing: I enjoyed Magna Cum Laude. Granted I was playing it on my xbox through means that shalt not be spoken of, altered to remove the censor bars and unlock everything without playing quarters for hours on end. I thought it was kind of funny and I liked the art style.
That said, everyone else in the worlds hates it, and Sierra heard their cries. They've decided to go another direction. Shit is a direction right? Let's hear it from the horse's mouth:
Box Office Bust takes aim at Hollywood in a big way. When I sat down and thought about the best way to bring Larry back and bring him back in a way that is mass-market, relevant and funny there was only one target. Hollywood. When we think of off the wall ridiculous missions for Larry to fall into we couldn't beat what Britney, Lindsay and Paris were doing in real life, daily. So then we figured if anyone had it coming it's Hollywood.
How timely. This is an area that has never in the history of man been covered. By everyone. And your mom. And your grandma. Speaking of which:
From the first day we began to plan out this game and its mechanics we had one writer in mind. As soon as the prototype stage was complete we approached Allen Covert (Grandma's Boy) to pen the script.
Grandma's mother-fucking Boy? Did they actually see that movie? It wasn't a real movie. It was a hand full of dipshits who woke up on Adam Sandler's lawn and got to make a movie. Keep in mind that Rob Schneider is the most talented of Sandler's friends, which places these guys lower than that. There wasn't a moment in the whole movie that I wasn't offended on some deep spirtual level. And there was nothing funny in it. In fact I'm not convinced they filmed all the scenes with a script so much as a camera and a vague idea of where they wanted to go.
I whole heartedly state Grandma's Boy as the worst movie I've ever seen. And I've seen Uve Boll.
What other great things do you promise for the franchise John?
Yes, this game has been planned all along to hit the countries the last one was not able to get into. We removed all the Nudity which helped a lot and each territory will get a copy of the script before it is localized to ensure there is nothing that would prevent it from being released and so they can localize the humor for each territory.
......................So you're cutting out the main reason to play and you're inviting local governments to re-write anything they find offensive?
Alright, that's it. I'm done.
Does anyone else have anything to add? Anyone optimistic? Anyone want to reminisce of the good old days of Larry 4?
