You younger gamer-cats will be forgiven for thinking the Leisure Suit Larry series is horrible. The last two games in the franchise were, in a word, excremental. The older games, on the other hand, were not. They were funny point-and-click adventures, so I'm pleased to report that the original Leisure Suit Larry games are getting the HD treatment. Replay Games plans to re-release the original series, as well as make some new adventures, beginning in 2012, the year that marks the series’ 25th anniversary.
The first project under the agreement will be an HD re-mastered version Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards, on every platform current: Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, XBLA, PSN, On-Live, Steam. It will feature upgraded visuals, sound and control, while retaining the games’ signature puzzles and sense of humor.
If that works out, the rest of Larry's adventures will be presented in HD, as well as new games, if the demand proves existent.
Replay Games founder and CEO Paul Trowe said: “Al and I are working very closely on this, to make sure every Larry game is the best. The remake of the original Leisure Suit Larry is going to kick so much ass, the entire world will have to play it standing up. And buy new pants. And a cushion. Seriously, we’re really excited about this.”
