Leisure Suit Larry creator Al Lowe was asked how he thinks the point and click adventure genre can be revitalized. This was his reply.
Bring back all the old adventure classics in HD on iOS!
I could never get into the Leisure Suit Larry games, mostly because I was never aware of them until the god awful PS2 games. An HD remake of the older titles could finally be enough to foster interest in gamers who never got the chance to play them.
Great piece. My only disappointment is that you didn't mention Full Throttle. I would kill for a chance to play that game again.
ScummVM Emulator ;-)
Leisure Suit Larry... I remember him from the 90's :p
We don't need touch screens to save adventure games. What we need is for good adventure games to actually be made. It's a shame that a company like LucasArts, arguably the greatest point-and-click adventure game maker, can find tens of millions of dollars to churn out another shitty Star Wars game but can't find under one million to make an adventure game. Well we always have Tim Schafer and Kickstarter.
I'd consider Heavy Rain to be of the point and click genre. We need more devs working on games like that.
What an idiot. Touch screens have ALREADY saved the adventure genre. Many, many years ago. You can thank Nintendo.
Leisure Suit Larry Love for Sail was the coolest pc game i ever played in the 90's during my jr.high years. the story,graphics,music everything was so classy and extremely cool.
