My childhood right there (all the old DOS games in the series). No wonder I'm such a perv.

I remember playing that a lot at my friend's house growing up. Was it made by the same people who did Police Quest and King's Quest? They all had a similar feel.

Published by the same company at least (also the Space Quest serries and a few other, similar titles). But I don't know how many of the developers were the same people.

Al Lowe was the guy behind the writing and concept for the Leisure Suit Larry games and I don't think he worked on other games of that sort, but maybe a lot of the artists, programmers, etc. did.



Somehow really fitting that Al Lowe is a fat, bearded guy in a hawaiian shirt.

King's Quest was some woman - Laura something? Hold on: I'll look it up. Ah. Roberta Williams. Always stuck out to me as a little chauvinistic teenager, that a woman could design a game. Sierra Entertainment: she founded and owned it. Also, as Shaz says, did Police Quest and Space Quest as well as LSL, though yeah, developed/created by others, under the Sierra umbrella. For a long time, Sierra was the go-to. I think Origin knocked them for six with the likes of Strike Commander, Wing Commander and later Privateer, which really upped the game (no pun intended) as far as graphic quality was concerned.
