Veteran game designer and Leisure Suit Larry creator Al Lowe has posted an update on his website concerning the continueing saga of his possible involvement in Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude. The eighth (technically seventh) Leisure Suit Larry game is currently in development at High Voltage without Al Lowe, but a massive fan outcry resulted in Vivendi contacting Lowe for neagotiations. However, Vivendi turned silent for a few months, only to get back in touch with Al Lowe this week. Here's what he has to say:
- Today I received a phone call from VU's Eric Hayashi, Executive Producer of the new Larry game. He said that there had been "considerable turnover" of people involved and they were regrouping. He also said they wanted to restart negotiations with me in order to get me involved, possibly as early as next week. Stay tuned to this page.
