It's a sad bit of news for fans of this very specific point-and-click series. The release date of Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded has been pushed back to the frustratingly vague late June. It was previously set to go up on May 31, but the developers have hit some snags with this HD remake of the raunchy classic.

When the game did not appear as scheduled, we reached out to find out why. This is the response we got:

Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded will release at the end of June now. Replay Games decided to delay the game for some polishing.

The Leisure Suit Larry games, for those that aren't acquainted, are point-and-click adventures where the player must win the affections of nubile young ladies. This is definitely not a game for kids, but it's not straight up porn either. Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded was launched by a Kickstarter campaign back in 2012 and brought in over $650,000. The developers only asked for $500,000 originally.

The title is mostly a remake of the original Leisure Suit Larry, but Kickstarter backers got to dictate some minor changes. And of course, the graphics are totally new and high-res. High-resolution is good, yes? The game is expected to sell for $9.99 when it finally launches in a few weeks.

    "The game is expected to sell for $9.99"?!
    That is a price tag not many gamers are willing to pay for any game.... I know I only pony up these amounts for square enix ;)

      LSL fans will pay. Plenty of them. Just look at how much they raised on Kickstarter alone.

        Then I hope the kickstarter funders will get the game for free.... because paying your pledge and then paying another 10 bucks would not go down so wel I assume.

          That's how it usually works, yeah.

    It is amazing how cheap gamers have become with the popularity of mobile devices over the last several years. I can remember when we payed $60+ for games on PC or console that didn't look half as good as what is available on mobile devices now.

    Sure, the competition is fiercer now, everyone can get in for a few hundred dollars a year membership fee (it varies but Apple is the highest that I know of coming in at about $100 a year to get your app in iTunes). With that much competition, publishers have to enter the race to the bottom of the barrel pricing to get fans to buy their games.

    I personally don't mind paying more for a well polished, awesome looking and playing game. Unfortunately, I know there aren't that many gamers out there anymore. There are more "if it is more than $0.99 then forget it" players out there.
