The long and the short of it, per Al Lowe: “It’s time for me to go back to doing the things I love, spending time with my family, taking care of my wife, and playing in my big band,” Lowe said in a statement to VentureBeat.
“I really had a blast during the Leisure Suit Larry Kickstarter and throughout development, especially packing those all boxes!” he said. “I’m not leaving for any other reason than to just return to retirement. I’m 67 years old. I don’t know how many years I have left, and the ones I do have left I want to spend with my family and friends.”
