Leisure Suit Larry in Land of the Lounge Lizards remake coming in 2012

Monday, 10th October 2011 22:19 GMT By Andrew Groen

If you miss the good old days of late 1980s, early 1990s adventure games, then we’ve got some great news for you today. The classic Leisure Suit Larry series is being resurrected and remade.Before you get too worried about a modern day bastardizing the series to make it palatable for new audiences, you should know that this is a remake, not a revival.

The developer, Replay Games, is merely updating the game for the HD era, not remaking its content.

Apparently even more remakes will be on their way as well if the first game is successful, but not the awful Xbox games. Those are thankfully staying dead.

The game will be headed to a plethora of platforms including Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, OnLive and Steam.

    I loved Leisure suit Larry games, grew up playing them. HD remake of these and the police quest games, making you use the chatpad to type commands would be a great way to sell loads of those.

    I suggested remaking Larry in HD and Police Quest so hope all these happen.

    It’s guaran-fucking-teed to be better than 2009′s clusterfuck Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust, at least.

    I have fond memories of the quiz that was supposed to check that the player was over 18 in one of the first games. Being European and all.
