‘Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded’ Delayed

photo-mainHeads up: Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded isn’t hitting at the end of this month, as was planned. Instead, it’ll hit towards “the end of June," creator Replay Games confirmed via the game’s Kickstarter page. This latest delay comes courtesy of bugs, as is the usual case with these kinds of short-ish postponements.

Here’s the skinny, ripped from that update:

Here’s the problem, and thus this un-scehdule Kickstarter update: due to the pure number of bugs found in the PC version alone (the Mac version is being tested now, but not via Steam), we’re having to delay the game, yet again, until the end of June.

I can’t tell you how many phone calls, arguments, and heart breaking conversations I’ve had with my advisors on this. I SERIOUSLY wanted this game out by the end of May because we’ve postponed it more times than Larry’s been rejected. Ok, well, maybe not THAT many, but still… we’ve had some delays.

While a bummer, delays are usually a good thing. Who wants to play a buggy game? For this one in particular, a buggy release could be pretty catastrophic. If bugs keep folks from enjoying this one, there’s really no incentive for them to play the next re-make in the series. Plus, there’s that whole “re-introducing Larry to people who have never played the original" thing, too.
