Leisure Suit Larry to Make a Comeback Using KickstarterCategory: Gaming
Posted: April 3, 2012 10:54AM
Do you have fond memories of the Leisure Suit Larry series? These raunchy adventure games focused on cult hero Larry Laffer's exploits to charm attractive women, which were (unsurprisingly) popular among male gamers during its heyday. Replay Games wants to reignite that spark with its modern retelling of 1987's Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards, but needs our help to make that a reality. This is where Kickstarter comes in, and if you're a contributor to funding the project's $500,000 target, you get exclusive collectibles such as Leisure Suit Larry branded condoms, postage stamps, banners, and even an in-game appearance for those willing to spend $5,000.
Replay Games roped in the original team who designed Leisure Suit Larry 1, which includes Al Lowe, Josh Mandel, Sabine Duvall, and Leslie Balfour. They also plan on making the rest of the Leisure Suit Larry games, but that's all dependent on the success of Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards Reloaded, so for anyone who's rooted for Larry in the last two decades or so, get ready to open up those wallets. The game already has a pledge of $109,689 with 28 more days to go, so it's probably a safe bet that the game will be made. As Replay Games cheekily adds: you can "make Leisure Suit Larry come again."
