Laura Bow Mysteries first appeared in the 1980's from Sierra and now 30 years you may soon be able to continue her adventures! Not much detail yet, but it's looking great!

Check out the art/screens here.

View the official website here.

EDIT: To answer IP questions, here is the status: Per the Sierra Chest FB Group "Update: So the developer IS in contact with Activision but obviously Activision is not easy to persuade. So at this point they're developing the first chapter and are trying to get the word out as much as possible."

Quote
LAURA IS BACK!
IN AN ALL NEW ADVENTURE.

After a mysterious package arrives at the offices of The New York Daily News Tribune, an unlikely chain of events sends Laura Bow off on the biggest story that the little newspaper has ever seen.

A long journey, an elaborate event, a life changing invention, and many dangerous motives for murder...


Happy Gaming!

How interesting. I wonder how they got permission to continue the series?

Thanks, Ana. wave

Maybe it’ll be free? You can make a fan game if you don’t charge. Otherwise they would certainly need consent to make it.

I hadn't considered the possibility of free. That might be it, Ana.

I added an update now that I had time to sleuth.

Update from Sierra Chest online: "So the developer IS in contact with Activision but obviously Activision is not easy to persuade. So at this point they're developing the first chapter and are trying to get the word out as much as possible."

What?

WHAT?

Laura Bow revived? I had NOT expected this.

The first two games are classics of course, but unfortunately slightly overshadowed by the King's Quest games (also by Roberta Williams, although she was only "creative consultant" for the second Laura Bow game). This doesn't mean that this is a good game (I dare say that we've all been thoroughly dissatisfied with certain Sierra revivals in the past), but the screenshots look magnificent and totally congruent with the Sierra games. I hope this turns out well.

Thanks, Ana, that's interesting!
However it is not clear if this game will be released after all: there were several previous attempts to revive Laura Bow ("Laura Bow 3: The Manhattan Murders", "Laura Bow 3: Fan Project" etc.), but all of them had been canceled...

They need the word spread and support to convince activision so every little bit helps!

Thanks Ana. The screen shots are beautiful.


It's nice to be important but it is much more important to be nice.
