Ex-SIERRA Game Developer is selling Original Source Code! -- BUY a piece of HISTORY!!
 
I hung out with Al Lowe (Leisure Suit Larry, Freddy Pharkas, King's Quest, Police Quest, etc) the other day and it turns out he may have some of the only original copies of game source code for a lot of the those classic games. Now that he's in his 70s, he's selling a lot of his collection on Ebay and gave me a preview of what's to come.


A starting bid of $100 for the original Leisure Suit Larry source?>! Hell yes!! LOL

...ok.... that escalated quickly!!! I got outbid TWICE on LSL1. Currently sitting at $820....

Selling source code..... what the? How does that work if someone goes around and releases it to public domain after the sale? He should have just made it open source.

I also think you just outgeeked us all by being willing to buy game source code. :eek:

...and now... it's WAY out of my price range!! LOL

Currently: $7,600 for LSL1, and over $7,800 for Larry 2? How is that possible?

Bonus points if he prints it out on a dot-matrix printer as part of the delivery.
