* FranchiseKiller: ''Box Office Bust'' more or less ensured that non-remake games of ''Leisure Suit Larry'' wouldn't see the light of day, so much that Creator/AlLowe ended up thanking Activision (who had absorbed Sierra by that point) for keeping him and themselves away from the atrocity.

Codemasters actually owns the writers to Leisure Suit Larry not Activision.

Added DiffLines:

* ExecutiveMeddling: The [[PrecisionFStrike excessive profanity]] in ''Box Office Bust'' as a substitute for more sexualized content was reportedly done at the request of the game's executive producer, who felt that the storyline and comedy would be enough to sell more copies.

Added DiffLines:

* TroubledProduction: ''Box Office Bust'' had to deal with being developed in just under a year, drastically changing the game's point-and-click formula to an open-sandbox platformer, heavily-trimmed down nudity and sexual content in favor of non-stop profanity, Creator/{{Sierra}} dropping the game after the Creator/{{Activision}}-[[Creator/BlizzardEntertainment Blizzard]] merger, the ''Leisure Suit Larry'' property getting sold to Creator/{{Codemasters}}, and Codemasters having to rapidly rush the game out to meet its release date.

** Al Lowe thought of naming the protagonist "Gary" instead of "Larry". Gary was an unpopular traveling sales representative working at Sierra.

* OldShame: Creator/MaryKayBergman wasn't too fond of her role as the foulmouthed Peggy from ''Love For Sail''. She personally requested not to be credited for the role in the credits, so Peggy was listed "as herself" instead.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: According to ''LSL 2'''s hint book, the spinach dip puzzle was based on a similar occurrence during the game's development. During a party that Al Lowe and his wife were hosting, one of the employees brought spinach dip, which spoiled at some point during the party. Everyone who ate it got dreadfully sick a week later, prompting the idea for the puzzle.

However [[http://www.allowe.com/games/larry/inside-stories/lsl8-plot.html Al lowe has some stuff about this unmade title]].
