Who can forget the early Leisure Suit Larry adventures of the late eighties, the classic but simple adventure games with a risqué twist. It’s now been announced that Larry is set to make a return to the gaming world.
Replay Games has just secured the rights to complete Leisure Suit Larry franchise which covers all current and future platforms. Larry’s original creator Al Lowe also makes a return to the series to reimagine the series for today’s audience.
Many gamers won’t remember the original Leisure Suit Larry In The Land Of The Lounge Lizards when it was released back in 1987 so it seems fitting that Replay Games reboot the series with a remake of the original adventure which they plan on releasing some time in late 2012. Series creator Lowe added:
“I’m totally jazzed to work with long-term friend and Sierra buddy, Paul Trowe. He’s worked tirelessly for years to get the Larry rights and return them to the hands of the Sierra ‘family.’ Working with Paul’s team ensures that the world’s favorite leisure suit-wearer remains the same guy we all learned to love a quarter-century ago. I’ll oversee the entire production of these games to ensure the highest standards and some amazing new adventures for my pal, Larry. It’s great to see my creation released from his digital dungeon!”
How these new game in the series go down now with today’s audience remains to be seen but for older gamers it will be a nice trip down memory lane.
