The Return of Leisure Suit Larry?

LEISURESUITLARRY 560x350Fans of Sierra On-Line in the 1980s fondly remember the Leisure Suit Larry games, where the lead character was a balding swingin’ loser whose goal in life (and in the game) was to get laid.

There is a catch though: The project needs funding. $500,000 to be exact, and it’s already raised more than $169,000 with more than 4200 funders.

Leisure Suit Larry In the Land of The Lounge Lizards Reloaded is planned for iOS and PC, and will have the following features:

  • Mobile device play
  • A modern point-and-click/touchscreen interface
  • Updated, ultra-high res graphics
  • Fully voiced characters
  • Overseen by creator Al Lowe
