At time of writing, the project has received more than $513,000 of its $500,000 goal, which means – like it or not – Larry’s back, baby!
Now that that bit is out of the way, and a full reboot of Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards is on the way, Replay Games and series creator Al Lowe have another list of things they’d like to add to the game if they have the cash. These include:
- Fully localize all the voice-overs in to as many languages as possible. We will start with FIGS (French, Italian, German, Spanish) and then branch out from there.
- We will shoot Leisure Suit Larry on to additional platforms: XBLA, PSN, and of course: Linux!
- The game will come to life with a live orchestra performing all your favorite Leisure Suit Larry tunes.
- We got game! When our funding goal is exceeded we plan on adding more rooms, more girls, and more lousy pick up lines. We’re basically making it bigger, badder, and uncut (that came out wrong but you know what we mean)!
The team has actually now set a new goal: $1,000,000 – which will see the addition of “vastly more content” alongside “loads of incredible new features”. The intention, of course, is to add 500,000 new laughs to the original game, through an animated intro, animated cutscenes, new maps, more speech, more dialogue, foreign languages, minigames, new puzzles, new girls, new locations and even a handful of Easter Eggs.
There are still some of the limited edition pledge reward levels available: A signed/numbered lithograph of custom Larry artwork, a limited edition “Girls of Leisure Suit Larry” calendar, your name and likeness in the bar at Lefty’s, on the dancefloor at Lost Wages or in the convenience store – or your dog‘s name and likeness immortalised forever.
If all of that sounds a little bit much, $15 will snag you a copy of Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards when it’s released a little later this year. What are you waiting for?
