Al Lowe Leaves Replay: Sex Actually Involved

GamesBeat has a report that Al Lowe has retired from working with Replay Games on the Leisure Suit Larry series he created. The post originally included comments from Lowe indicating the parting was on good terms, but an update subsequently clarified this is not actually the case, with Lowe vaguely stating "numerous reasons" were behind his decision not to renew his deal. Kotaku picks up the story from there, reporting that some of this traces back to an incident earlier this year where Paul Trowe, CEO of Replay Games, received probation after pleading guilty to displaying harmful material to a minor, a misdemeanor in Texas. That is the part that is not in dispute, though the explanations of what actually happened differs depending on the source, but it involved sending an underage girl a video of her boyfriend having sex with a man, which Trowe, who is openly gay, characterizes as an attempt to show her that her boyfriend was being unfaithful. They quote Trowe saying he would not have done this had he known she was only 16 years old. "There were many reasons for my departure, including that [2012] incident," Lowe explained to Kotaku. "As far as I know, Replay Games still has the rights (from Codemasters, owners of the I.P.) to do Leisure Suit Larry games, but they'll have to do them without me."
