Leisure Suit Larry fans, get ready to once again return to Lefty's Bar. Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded, a remake of the original game in the series, is easing its way into the Play Store on May 31st. Replay Games has completed the HD makeover using the funds from its successful 2012 Kickstarter campaign, which exceeded their original $500,000 goal by over $150,000.

For those of you who have never met Larry Laffer before, he's a 40 year-old virgin "still untouched by human hands," as the game puts it. He stars in a series of point-and-click adventure games known for their raunchy humor, revealing puzzles, and occasionally topless women. This month's remake will introduce a new woman for Larry to woo, Jasmine. She was chosen by Kickstarter backers and, as a woman in her mid-20s, will be the youngest of Larry's love interests.

Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards was first released in 1987. The HD remake has been developed from scratch and features drastically updated graphics along with fully-voiced characters. Al Lowe, the writer behind the original game, has thrown his weight behind the effort to update his now 25-year-old creation.

The Android version of the game will be available for $9.99 on May 31st. The game is also shipping for iOS, PC, Mac, and Linux the same day.

    First day purchase for me.

    Something worth $10 that's not Final Fantasy, nice.
    On the other hand, similar point-and-click Broken Sword is $5, and it got roughly the same amount of content.

      Yeah but Larry Laffer is a leg end.

    • Matthew Fry

      For the consumer, yes, Broken Sword is a better deal. But Broken Sword was only a port, minimally updated, that already had full voice acting and only select bits were HD updated. LSL is so old this is pretty much a brand new game. I bet even the text was reworked (especially if there are any cultural references). We're talking about a game that originally looked like this:

      edit: I'm just trying to explain why the price is justified.

    Looking forward to this one. Still undecided if I should get the Android version since I backed it up for the PC version. :)

    to expensive for a game that can be played for free with an abandonware larry and scummvm

    • lilknox

      Assuming graphics quality still the same as DOS version, of course.

      I'm sure they made resolution higher on reloaded version.

    I'm just glad that they're keeping the the "answer these questions about ancient-to-kids pop culture" style of age verification from the original.
