Fans are hard-up for more Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded

Replay Games finally gave into the fan frenzy and agreed to put Larry in their hands with a boxed version.

Earlier this year, Replay released the game online to great acclaim, but for some reason, adventure game lovers can’t really enjoy a game unless they’re holding a cardboard box. (Android, iPad, iPhone, Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded, PC)

A boxed copy is really cool, but i think it has something to do with Larry's legacy, rather than any other particular reason. Remember that this was released for the PC-XT on 5.25" and 3.5" disks with manuals and everything. And like the smell of a new book, there's something quite... titillating about opening a game in a cardboard box.

Seriously, even something like GTA5 didnt have anything particular in it's DVD cover, just a map, a basic manual with controls, and an extra activation code, and its one of the biggest games to come out this year. Gone are the days of getting an awesome manual, with some background story /lore along with instructions and some extras. IIRC, the last game that did that was the boxed copy of Guild Wars 1. While awesome, it missed something from the days of games such as the Larry series, or anything from the Sierra stables in that timeframe.

Even looking at the kickstarter video, Al Lowe points out that Sierra sold more hintbooks than actual copies of the game, so it is indicative of the level of piracy in the original game, but also shows an interesting model of making money off a title in an alternate and intersesting way.

Point is, if there is a boxed copy, I'll take it!

I am a huge fan of Leisure Suit Larry, one of the coolest cats out there.
