Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards was first released in 1987. In October 2011, games publisher Replay Games announced a modern remake to include updated HD graphics, fully vocalized audio and would be released on various platforms including home computers, games consoles and mobile devices. Development was passed on to N-Fusion Interactive who managed to raised $655,182 via a Kickstarter campaign last spring to fund completion of the game. Al Lowe, the writer behind the original game, has thrown his weight behind the effort to update his now 25-year-old creation.
In the game we play 40 year old virgin Larry Laffer “still untouched by human hands,” as the game puts it. He stars in a series of point-and-click adventure games known for their raunchy humor, revealing puzzles, and occasionally topless women. This month’s remake will introduce a new woman for Larry to woo, Jasmine. She was chosen by Kickstarter backers and, as a woman in her mid-20s, will be the youngest of Larry’s love interests.
The iOS and Android version of the game will be available for $9.99 on May 31st. The game is also shipping for iOS, PC, Mac, and Linux the same day.
