Leisure Suit Larry Kickstarter closes on $655,182

Thursday, 3rd May 2012 06:40 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Replay Games has secured the required funding – and then some – for Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards.

With $655,182 as the final KickStarter tally, the project attracted 14,081 backers for an average donation of just over $46 each.

The $15 pledge proved the most popular but at least one person gave $10,000 and seven ponied up at least $5,000.

Towards the end of the fundraising period, Replay Games began accepting donations via PayPal, to facilitate donations by those ho can’t use Amazon’s checkout system. When these additional funds are accounted for, the developer received $673,602.

Replay Games expresses its thanks in the video below.

The remake of Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards is expected on Android, iDevice, Mac and PC in October.

    I don’t get why this managed to do so well when e.g. Jane Jensen’s project (Moebius – Pinkerton Road) is still up in the air. At least to me, Leisure Suit Larry always seemed quite a bit less relevant than really any big adventure game from back then (including Gabriel Knight, obviously).
    It was cute and all but I felt few people were talking about it or playing it and I didn’t see much point in it either. As a regular adventure game, I found the story very lacking and as an adult game – where’s the hardcore action? Actually… thinking about it, it seems kind of like it would be the ideal concept for women… tacky and softcore. Just like chick flicks and romance novels.
