Austin Wintory has confirmed in a recent interview that he will score the Kickstarter-funded remake Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded. Given the nature of the series, the score will have a very different feel to his Grammy-nominated Journey, and listeners should expect some "seedy, back alley kind of stuff". The composer has also scored Monaco and The Banner Saga, both due out in coming weeks.
