Replay Games to Ship Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded

Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded

Game publisher Replay Games has officially announced it will ship out physical PC versions of Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded to North American stores Oct. 29. At the time of it’s release four months ago, Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded was available only as a download.

“What are they [Replay Games] thinking,” said lead designer and Leisure Suit Larry Creator Al Lowe in a humorous press release. “Our whole Kickstarter campaign was built around our ‘rebel attitude.’ The video even shows me mocking retail sales! What? Oh, good; at least it won’t be in Wal-Mart!”

Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded is a remake of the 1987 title Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards. Just like the original, the story centers on unlucky computer programmer Larry Laffer. Traveling to the fictional city of Lost Wages after a series of unfortunate events, Laffer hopes to turn his luck around. With only his Leisure Suit and a little under $100, players guide Laffer on a night long quest to meet the woman of his dreams.

The game is a fully enhanced version of the original complete with a new visual style, engine and features not seen in the original release which was first published by the now defunct Sierra Entertainment. It was financed through a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter in 2012 which raised over $655,000 from at least 14,000 backers.
