Incredibly enough, the cover art to this game was drawn by Boris Vallejo, the same guy that likes to draw females in medieval situations and with little to no clothing on. He's also drawn covers to other Legend Entertainment games, such as Eric The Unready.

Marketing

Although not ESRB rated, this game carries a "Recommended for Mature Audiences" label.

Technology

Les Manley in: Lost in L.A. is the first graphic adventure game to use digitized actors.
