"It’s been a long way back for Larry Laffer. While other heroes had the good fortune to merely be forgotten, Larry had to see his name dragged through the mud by two terribly-received titles that embraced the kind of frat-boy humor the series was once meant to lampoon. Series creator Al Lowe compared the angst of watching these releases to receiving a hostage video of a loved one: “You’re happy he’s still alive, but at the same time, he’s being tortured.”
Well Larry has been freed from his captors, and is back in the hands of the Sierra veterans at Replay Games, a team that includes Al Lowe and his long-time co-conspirator Josh Mandel. To remind the world of what Larry once was, and to help erase the memory of his recent failures, Replay has elected to remake the 1987 original that started it all."
