Cop-Out: Precinct Crowd-Funding Cancelled

There are plenty of pitfalls that come with crowd-funding. Hell, even successful campaigns suffer from cashflow problems. But I'd imagine Precinct, the spiritual successor to Police Quest, would rather be in that position than the one it's currently in. After a collapsed Kickstarter, the game's second attempt at bucket rattling hasn't taken in the necessary funds, with only $11,961 pledged in three weeks. In a…

Precinct Kickstarter Arrested, Alternative Funds Sought

For whatever reason, the spiritual successor to Police Squad, Precinct, just didn't capture the imagination of the Kickstarter crowd.

Ah, I have it:…

RPS Interview: Al Lowe

Anyone who grew up with games in the late 80s and 90s will be so very familiar with the name Al Lowe. Famous, infamous, certainly notorious, he was the creator of Leisure Suit Larry, a series of daft, entertaining, and ever-so-slightly naughty adventure games from Sierra. Lowe's credits go far beyond Larry, working on stories and coding for many of Sierra's seminal adventure series, but…
