Larry Manuals

In case you purchased a used copy of my games that was missing its manual, or simply can't read the PDF files included with the Larry Collections, here are scans of the manuals I still have. NOTE: these are only to be used by those who actually paid for a game.

Larry1 VGA Remake Copy Protection Materials

These materials came with every copy of the LSL1: Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards VGA remake in 1991. I still can't believe we talked Sierra into it! Written by Josh Mandel, with his tongue firmly embedded in his cheek, these still make me laugh 17 years later. I hope you enjoy them, too.

 

Larry1 VGA Remake Hintbook
(without the hints)

LSL1: Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards came out in 1987. By 1991, we thought it needed a facelift so we redrew every background and animation (and added many more).

These pages are the non-hint pages of the hintbook. You can Google for the real hints faster anyway!

 

Larry2 Manual

The LSL2: Leisure Suit Larry Goes Looking for Love (in Several Wrong Places) manual is interesting because of it included a start-up walkthru and line drawings of Larry.

Or, if you'd rather, download this PDF file of all the pages.

 

Larry3 Nontoonyt Tonite Magazine

During the late floppy disk period, Sierra decided to put the copy protection in the complementary materials rather than on the disk. This way people could back up their games but without the documentation, you couldn't finish the games. Of course, the Internet pretty much negated that scheme! <grin>

Still, these are well worth reading. Written by Marti & Bridget McKenna, these are truly funny adjuncts to Leisure Suit Larry 3: Passionate Patti in Pursuit of the Pulsating Pectorals.

 

Larry5 AeroDork Airlines Timetable

Someone thought black on red would prevent people from Xeroxing our copy protection. It also prevented them from reading it!

 

Larry5 Playspy Magazine

Josh Mandel and Kurt Busch, both of whom went from Sierra into ever bigger and better positions at other game companies, created this wonderful parody of Playboy magazine, a brilliant example of a paper adjunct that fit perfectly with the theme of Leisure Suit Larry 5: Passionate Patti Does a Little Undercover Work.

 

Larry6 Calendar

One of the last of the great box inserts, I came up with "The Girls of Larry 6" after seeing the beautiful women Bil Skirvin and his artists created for Leisure Suit Larry 6: Shape Up or Slip Out!
