Last year, the future looked unexpectedly bright for Leisure Suit Larry. This year, however, the creator of the original 1987 classic PC game has told Kotaku that he's resigned from the publisher who brought Larry back to the public. In fact, Al Lowe may not be involved in the future of gaming's iconic loser lothario at all. Sex is part of the reason he's leaving but not in a way that many would find funny.
In 2012, a Kickstarter campaign to re-introduce the sleazy sex comedy series netted more than $650,000 and work got underway to release a re-mastered version of the first Leisure Suit Larry game. Released this summer, Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded (reviewed here) ultimately fell short of the risqué pleasures of yesteryear, joining the ranks of crowdfunded titles that garner loads of cash but fizzle out when finally released.
