Digital Antiquarian Reviews Leisure Suit Larry and Sierra

ll_021-300x225

Jimmy Maher, curator of The Digital Antiquarian has released a very in depth review of Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards.  His article goes into quite a bit of detail about Ken Williams, Sierra, as well as the back lash that they faced with publishing the program.  The article also talks about Al Lowe and Mark Crowe’s involvement in the project and how it was kept under wraps in order to keep investors from dumping the company.  It is a continuation of the previous week’s posting about the history of Sierra.

This one is well worth the read for those Apple II historians:
