New Leisure Suit Larry adventure announced

26 May, 2018, 12:25 | Posted by: ThunderPeel2001
Leisure Suit Larry is set to return to his adventure game roots for a new outing headed by fledging German studio CrazyBunch. Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Don't Dry (ugh) is already available for preorder on Steam, and visually it looks impressive, even if Larry looks a lot less short, pudgy, and middle-aged than he used to.


There's no mention of series creator, Al Lowe, being involved which almost certainly means he isn't. Given the spotted past of LSL games, who knows how this one will turn out, or how it will be received by a modern audience.

As Larry says in the press release: “My new adventure takes me from the end of the ’80s directly into the 21st century and wow, how the world has changed! While my view of the world and women from way back in the 1980s collides with modern reality harder than the breasts of a lusciously stacked blonde jogging along a beach, I’m all set to date my way across the modern world!”

You be the judge!

Thanks to reader Rum Rogers for alerting us to this story.

    A game with women as sex objects as its focus rings particularly outdated in 2018. The only way to make it interesting would be if he actually was going to make his "way across the modern world", with everything that would entail.



    To be fair, LSL's reputation is probably worse than its content, at least with the early games. The first one has Larry looking for love, not sex, for example. It became seedier as it went along, but I think it was pretty good natured at heart, just misguided at times (I definitely didn't enjoy the homophobic stereotypes).

    One thing is for sure, the new devs are pandering to the nostalgia of people like us, but if the quote from the press release is anything to go by, I think they've missed the mark of straddling today's politics with yesterday's cheeky humour... and if this going to be any good, they really need to get that right.

    While I agree that it's definitely outdated, I think a politically correct version of LSL wouldn't deserve to exist and would simply put the last nail in the franchise's coffin.
    Better outdated than dead.

    Not interested at all in this one. I wish Al Lowe could get full rights to make a proper Larry 8.


    I don't think he'd be interested, after all he retired. Not sure about that though.
