Leisure Suit Larry's unspoken motto has always been "if at first you don't succeed, try, try again." But even though he did succeed in spawning an incredibly popular series of classic comic Sierra adventures in the 1980s and '90s, he's still game to try again, bigger and better than ever in the newly-released Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards: Reloaded.
First released back in 1987, Leisure Suit Larry casts players in the polyester duds of lovable loser Larry Laffer for one wild and crazy night as he seeks to meet the girl (or girls) of his dreams. The Reloaded version, one of the earliest high-profile adventures to be funded through Kickstarter, updates the original in a variety of ways, including hi-res, hand-drawn artwork and animation, and an all-new "Vegas-style" musical score by Austin Wintory (including series creator Al Lowe on sax).
But this is more than just a polished remake, as the game promises to include a host of new dialogue written by Lowe and fellow collaborator Josh Mandel, full voice acting for non-mobile versions, and all-new content with "expanded puzzles, locations, women, humor and gameplay." And though it wouldn't be a Larry game if it didn't "drip with innuendos, flirt with perversity, and ooze sexuality", what there still won't be is any full-frontal nudity, "four-letter words" or on-screen sex. (You'll have to have your own adventures for that.)
Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lound Lizards: Reloaded is available today for Windows, Mac, and Linux for $19.99 from the official website. The $4.99 voiceless versions will be available shortly for iOS at the App Store and Android devices at Google Play.
