Anyway, posting rest of interesting FAQ:
"I love the game but I would pledge more if you guys made a brand new Leisure Suit Larry game instead of a re-make of LSL 1
We would LOVE to make a new version of Leisure Suit Larry!! We thought about making LSL 4 (the missing floppies) or 8, or even 69!! The problem is, when we licensed the title from Codemasters back in October (you guys probably saw our big press release), we only licensed the re-makes. So we're doing that to fulfill our obligation. What we REALLY want to do is to make Leisure Suit Larry 8. To do that, though, it costs a hell of a lot more money than $500,000. To put it in perspective, LSL 7 cost about $2mm back in 1996 which is about $3mm today. The reason why we're re-making the original 7 versions is so we can bring them up to date, up to speed, and make enough money to build Leisure Suit Larry 8 (maybe even 4 but Al is a bit reluctant on #4). We really want to hit #8 out of the ball park so being 100% honest here, that means we have to save up enough money from the sales of 1-7 to make #8 which we see costing roughly $5 - $8 million dollars."
"Will you guys add any new content to the game if you exceed your funding goal?
TOTALLY!! Al, Josh, & Paul were on the phone tonight discussing how we can implement new rooms, new girls, new puzzles, and new ways for Larry to get in trouble. So the short answer is yes, if we exceed our funding goal additional game play is in the plan. BUT, it needs to be designed and we don't plan on doing that until we hit our first milestone of our $500k Kickstarter budget."
"I love the Sierra classics!! Can you bring back King's Quest, Space Quest, or Police Quest?
Our good friends over at Tell Tale have licensed King's Quest from Activision. If we do our job right then maybe, just MAYBE we'll be able to partner with them and ruinite the Space Quest team, King's Quest team (go Roberta!!!!) and Police Quest team for re-makes or new versions of those (Space Quest 7 anybody?)."
Really, if they can only make more remakes/sequels if game sells, it sounds almost like it would be more useful to buy the game if it does get funded than fund it and get game that way.
