"We should be in beta this week," Trowe said. "We need to get all the bugs and game freezes out of the way, and maybe do pick-up lines with the actors that may have been missed. We'll get the game to about 7,500 of our Kickstarter backers for the beta test, and they'll also be testing foreign language versions as well."
The beta should run about two weeks, Trowe said, and when it launches, Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded will be $20 for PC, Mac and Linux. During GDC, Trowe told us he hoped to see Reloaded out between May 15 - 30. The game is scheduled to hit Europe in June for £15.
Re-made, expanded and enhanced in every detail with original creator Al Lowe and original writer Josh Mandel at the helm, Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded sees Larry Laffer's first and greatest adventure, Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards, re-made for a brand new audience 26 years after its original release. Behind all-new hi-res, hand-drawn art and animation replacing the blocky pixelated graphics of the 1987 original, come expanded puzzles, locations, humour and gameplay. And rounding off the package (no pun intended!) is a re-written musical score from Grammy-nominated and BAFTA-winning composer Austin Wintory featuring Al Lowe on saxophone!
God's gift to womankind (at least in his own mind!) is back this June and he's got brand new leopard skin underpants to prove it!
