Larry the Dinosaur 2: Nine Years Later

It was Halloween evening, October 31st, 2002. A game I had been working on since the summer was almost finished. I wanted to released on this day, for some odd reason. Honestly, it still needed a ton of work; it had many bugs, and it had some poor design issues that needed to be addressed. But at the time, my programming skills weren't too great and I had enough of the project. I played through the game several times that night, fixing up what I could, and then I submitted it to various sites. The game was Larry the Dinosaur 2.

Thanks for this article. Larry the Dinosaur 2 was one of my all time favorite QB games, and has a dear spot in my heart of all the games I ever played.

I really do hope you'll start developing part 3 in FB in the near future. Even an unoriginal copy of part 2 with new story and setting would be enough for me.

Thanks! The third game has always been on my to-do list since the last one. I can't make any promises though. If I get around to it, I probably won't make any announcements until the beta stage; I've attempted it a number of times and none of those incarnations made it to the finish. But I will keep trying. :)

Larry the Dinosaur was one of my main inspirations during my time as an active QB developer. Very interesting blog :)
