  1. Have you ever wanted to own the source code to Leisure Suit Larry? Well, you can for the low price of $2,225 (as of this writing). Al Lowe, one of the leading figures at Sierra On-Line, has begun putting his vast collection of game dev memorabilia up for auction on eBay and people are going wild over it. The legendary Al Lowe worked at Sierra Entertainment during they heyday of adventure gaming and took leading roles programming and creating music for games like King's Quest III, Space Quest, and became the guiding hand of the lovable loser Leisure Suit Larry's failure fraught quest for love. The 72-year-old legend invited game collector YouTuber Metal Jesus Rocks into his home to help determine what might bring in some money and go to loving collections. According to Lowe, Sierra never bothered to keep backups of its code or even copies - so his collection of source code for the Leisure Suit Larry games, Kings Quest III, and more are the only copies that exist on the planet. Currently, there are four items up for auction, though there's a strong possibility that more could be on the way. So far, the source code for Leisure Suit Larry I and II are up for sale and are going for over $2K apiece. Lowe also put up the game that inspired Leisure Suit Larry, an obscure Sierra game called Softporn. Finally, interested parties can bid on a Christmas card from the Sierra offices. Of course, all of these items come on floppy disks, even the company Christmas card. Keep an eye on the collection for more being added in the near future. UPDATE: Lowe has added two items to the offering, both extremely rare Apple II games that are likely some of the last of their kind. The first is Dragon's Keep, the first game Al Lowe ever created. It comes from an age when games came in bags instead of boxes. He created the game out of his own home with the help of his wife and sold it out of his home before Sierra bought the rights (and began packaging it in boxes). If you can get it running, it's an adventure game about overcoming a dragon's keep. Currently, Dragon's Keep is going for $1,225. The second item has attracted a great deal of attention. Bop-A-Bet is another incredibly rare game, one of only 200 in it's bagged form. The game helps teach kids the alphabet by having kids go through a maze while bopping letters in the correct alphabetical order and then bopping a bunch of punching bags after the round is over for additional points. The bid for this item is currently lounging at a cool $10,000 so... someone out there really wants this educational game from 1982. Finally, the bids for both of the Leisure Suit Larry source code bundles have each topped $10,000, too, putting them out of reach for many out there. The Christmas card and the game that inspired Leisure Suit Larry are both still within biddable reach for dedicated game history aficionados.

  3. It's truly a great time for indie games. The adventure genre was long dead, but the current state of the industry has allowed the classic style of game to experience a phoenix-like resurrection, exposing an entirely new generation of gamers to the thrill of storytelling and puzzle-solving many of the old guard of gamers were able to experience in Space Quest or even Zork. HomeBearStudio, a small Dutch game development studio has just released a beautifully illustrated adventure game, Nairi: Tower of Shirin, on both the Nintendo Switch and PC to delight both young and old gamers alike. Nairi: Tower of Shirin tells the story of Nairi, a girl from the upper crust of a society populated by both humans and animals. Losing everything she has, she winds up in the criminal underbelly of Shirin, an oasis in the middle of a vast desert. In this new, seedy life of crime, she meets Rex, a former gangster who left his old life behind to become a scholar. Together, the duo work to unravel the enigmatic mystery of the tower that sits at the center of their city. Buoyed by an adorable cast of characters all lovingly drawn and animated, players will need to use their creativity and smarts to solve puzzles in this modern take on the classic point-and-click adventure genre. The Switch version allows players to play it traditionally or take point-and-click extremely literally and point their joy-cons at the screen to interact with the game. Overall, this game looks sweet and cute beyond words - plus it retails for $9.99. Check it out if you need some more indie spice in your gaming library. Nairi: Tower of Shirin is available now for Nintendo Switch and PC. Don't forget to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games!

  5. There's a brand new translation out for a game Hideo Kojima wrote and directed all the way back in 1994. Policenauts released for the PC-9821 over two decades ago and was remade for the 3DO in 1995 before migrating to the PlayStation and Sega Saturn in 1996. The Konami title was never released outside of Japan and might have remained unknown to Western audiences if not for the surprise release of an unofficial fan translation released in 2009 in honor of Kojima's 49th birthday. Policenauts tells the story of Jonathan Ingram, one of the five police astronauts who have been assigned to, Beyond Coast, the first functional human space colony. After a disastrous incident that leaves him cryogenically frozen in space for almost a quarter of a century, Ingrambecomes a private investigator on Earth until an encounter with his ex-wife who implores him to travel back to Beyond Coast and unravel the mysteries of her new husband's disappearance. While it's certainly some hardboiled sci-fi, the meat and potatoes of Kojima's work for the better part of two decades, Policenauts seems practically restrained and restful compared to the completely bonkers twists and turns of the Metal Gear Solid franchise. So, if there was already an unofficial translation released seven years ago, what's with the headline? The 2009 translation was for the version of Policenauts that released on the original PlayStation. However, Policenauts on the Sega Saturn has become what many fans of the game consider to be the definitive iteration of the title. It includes additional scenes and extras not seen in the PlayStation version, as well as boasting higher quality pixel art. The newest fan translation from this year covers the Saturn version's extras. You can find both the PS1 and Saturn translations on the Policenaut's community page. For those looking to play the translations, there's some bad news. It's a bit tricky. Luckily, the translators recognized this and include some streamlined instructions and multiple options for those who might be moving into uncharted territory to apply the translation patches. Unlike recent fan-made games that have been cancelled, these translations do not include distribution of Policenauts itself. If you want to experience some early Kojima, or just want to scratch the nostalgia itch for a solid point-and-click experience, consider checking out Policenauts.
