    LOL, I hope those who aren't for the Kickstarter aren't really thinking that LSL was just for the softcore nude scenes. They were point-and-click adventure games that can keep up with the likes of Full Throttle, Monkey Island, and other LucaArts SCUMM-system games, even though the story's were stupid. :p

    Oh, don't get me wrong, I played LSL. I played Wing Commander, X-Wing and FreeSpace 2 as well. I think we just differ on which series/genre deserves to see more daylight.

    For example, I'm a fan of the excellent Longest Journey series, and I think those deserve a continuation (note: not a remake) much more than LSL deserve a remake. With rose-tinted glasses on, yes, LSL had occasional comedic value. I don't however think its story deserves to be retold, or offers anything at all to the current gaming landscape.

    And don't get me started on how LSL can keep up with LucasArts games. Reminded me that Grim Fandango 2 doesn't exist while LSL HD Remake does won't lower my eyebrows one bit! :banghead:

    I know some people really like that genre of game, but for me that game feels like phone sex with graphics and I`m not really into that. Never the less, glad they got the funding to make a new game.


    There's a nice looking zombie game called Zombicide on KickStarter. As you know I am big fan of zombie games, movies, tv series.

    If anyone like a nice zombie board game, this one should not be missed. I already pledge at Abom level and my reward is getting sweeter by the hour!

    Were fun for me back when I was 10/11 years old, can say similar about all video games. People lack social skillz so they stay inside and game all day/night ;)

    I remember it took me forever to get past the first screen. You had to type "look" or something like that

    I didn't even know about that. Sad it's not going well. :(

    It's about popularity I guess. That games should be popular but LSL is about sex so that will be more popular.

    Don't know why you're mentioning Tim Schafer though, he's not even related to LSL. ;)

    The only game I want to be remade is the first Deus EX. If they will use Unreal Engine 4, it could be (again) the best game in history...;)

    Ahh, indeed. Apologies. I misread the context of the opening post, but even so I should've realized Tim has nothing to do with LSL.

    Don't drink and post, kids.

    Yeah, LSL was one big porno movie :slap: When I want a porno, I'll watch a porno.

    If the attractiveness of LSL was solely from the sexual situations and digi-boobs, then Magna Cum Laude and Box Office Bust should have been highlights in the franchise! And yet, they did poorly. Without the humor, situations, and subtleties that Al Lowe brought to the Laffer series, the Lovage series is the hot chick you can't stand talking to in the morning. Sex can sell, but not alone.
