Anyone who grew up with games in the late 80s and 90s will be so very familiar with the name Al Lowe. Famous, infamous, certainly notorious, he was the creator of Leisure Suit Larry, a series of daft, entertaining, and ever-so-slightly naughty adventure games from Sierra. Lowe's credits go far beyond Larry, working on stories and coding for many of Sierra's seminal adventure series, but it will always be for the loveless lounge lizard that he'll be remembered.
Rock, Paper, Shotgun spoke to Al Lowe to get his reaction to the games. They also spoke about developing the original Larry and Police Quest games, the state of the industry then and now, why Lowe is no longer developing games, and some unique insight into the reason a generation grew up solving puzzles.
