    The whole reason to donate to kickstarters :smug: My gift has arrived. The box doesn't look that bad in real life.

    Haha, oh wow, yeah, his sense of humor is extremely awful, I'm surprised. His entire site is filled with the type of 1980's usenet tagline humor, or the type of shit your grandma would FWD: FWD: FWD: 10 Funny Reasons To Respect My Daughter on a Date! It's like grandpa humor, except, well... he is a grandpa. Even more cringe-worthy is that he still writes dirty "jokes". It's actually pretty fucking revolting to think about.

    Actually, I firmly believe the character was directly inspired by Larry Dallas from Three's Company. The time syncs up perfectly; TC was on from '76 to '84 and stayed in syndication forever and Leisure Suit Larry was released in '87.

    Al says it was inspired by some guy who worked at Sierra.

    However, while I don't actually remember much of Three's Company that guy does have a Larry aura.

    Lies, we all know it was inspired by the great Herbert R. Tarleck:

    Leisure Suit Larry creator Al Lowe retires from Replay Games

    There goes Larry (Josh left a while ago). Shame (and I still haven't gotten my Kickstarter stuff, FeelTheRads' post on top of this page mocking me every time).
    Also, notice in the comments:

    Huh, maybe I was lucky because I was in the kwa at the time.

    Anyway, what exactly is Trowe saying there? Al (and Josh) left because people didn't like Trowe?

    So, Trowe can return to his cave and we have the chance of Josh Mandel and Al Lowe doing something with someone decent this time.

    I can't into Twitter. So it's Al who said: "don't believe the quotes in the article. It was really due to Paul's actions and learning about them from you and all."?

    In that case AHAHAHAHA

    And Trowe replies

    :lol: :lol:

    It's kinda sad too, though.

    Josh has been so nice and quiet through all of this - I really hope he rebounds, even by going it alone. Better yet he should go and supervise/fix Jane and the 2guys' games.

    Yeah, he even supposedly helped out with that last update (particularly the Age Verification questions), but he was most likely still under contract, like Al.
    It's been worthwhile to have this guy back, if for a short while.

    Well, whatever. It resulted in a half-decent remake and a huge cavalcade of entertaining internet drama.

    Paul Trowe, douche-bag to the end. :salute:

    You go right ahead.

    I'd rather be keeping a safe distance.
    Better hook up with Spider Robinson and do another Callahan's game. With all the shit both of them have been through recently it'd probably work out pretty nicely for everyone involved. Btw, does anyone hold the rights or have they reverted since?

    Boy, I'd love a new Callahan's game. Curious about the rights, too.

    I've just sent Spider (or whomever screens his mail) an email asking him about the rights. We'll see how it goes.

    Well, I got a reply (it didn't take this long, but I've been busy the past week). According to the man himself he was never contacted by Take Two (the publisher of Callahan's Crosstime Saloon) regarding anything and as far as he knows he still owns all the game rights.
