Oh dear god!!!
For the first time in a long while, I can honestly say I’m actually looking forward to playing my favourite likable loser ‘Larry’ in a game which I can say not only makes a beautiful homage to the originals (and you need to play those!.. maybe not so much Magna cum Laude.. DEFINELTLY NOT Box office bust).
Subtitled ‘Wet Dreams Don’t Dry’ (likely a nod to the game D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die, the newest game in the Leisure Suit Larry series will be developed by German studio, CrazyBunch. It will apparently take place in the 21st century as the titular lovable loser bumbles his way through the modern world of dating. There have been allusions to smartphones usage with apps like “Instacrap” and “Timber”, and Larry’s late 80’s worldview colliding with modern society “harder than the breasts of a lusciously-stacked blonde jogging along a beach.” There has been no word yet on whether there will be a drinking game based on encountering Millennial jokes, but it doesn’t exactly sound like a smart, self-aware story about a fish-out-of-water learning how society has moved on quite a bit from the 80s.
Current indications are this game will be released Oct 24th / Late 2018.
Now where did I put that copy of the complete collection, I really need to finish off the ‘Passionate Patti Does a Little Undercover Work’!
