'Leisure Suit Larry' Classic Gets HD Remake, New Installment Planned - Screens

The world’s least successful lover, but highly successful adventure game hero, is back with a bang. A BIG HD BANG. Leisure Suit Larry is heading to the new generation of game platforms, and a new generation of gamers.

Working with Al Lowe, the mastermind behind Larry’s original adventures, Replay Games can now bring back all of the  Leisure Suit Larry games, reimagined and redesigned for the future!

Or create entirely new ones.

Yeah, that’s right. New ones. Yes, we’re excited, too!

Larry’s original classic adventure,  Leisure Suit Larry In The Land Of The Lounge Lizards is the first title Al and the Replay team will revisit, resuscitate and rejuvenate. Plus, an all-new high-def game is in the pipeline with a release date of Q4 2012 or "as soon as it’s suitably awesome!"

Mr. Al Lowe will be working closely with the Replay Games team to ensure that the games stay faithful (unlike their lead character!) to the Leisure Suit Larry brand. No "knock offs," no pseudo-relatives, these are the real deal.

When asked to comment, Al screamed, "Get outta here!” But after he flushed and washed his hands, he explained, “I'm totally jazzed to work with long-term friend and Sierra buddy, Paul Trowe. He's worked tirelessly for years to get the  Larry  rights and return them to the hands of the Sierra ‘family.’ Working with Paul's team ensures that the world’s favorite leisure suit-wearer remains the same guy we all learned to love a quarter-century ago. I'll oversee the entire production of these games to ensure the highest standards and some amazing new adventures for my pal,  Larry. It's great to see my creation released from his digital dungeon!"

Paul Trowe, founder and CEO of Replay Games, agrees vehemently. "I'm honored to work with game designer-extraordinaire and total legend, Al Lowe, on one of the most best-loved and successful adventure games in history. I've been working to acquire the original Sierra properties for over 10 years. I can’t even begin to explain how thrilled I am to announce we’re letting  Larry breathe the fresh air of freedom once more and releasing him from the clutches of corporate America. 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.”

The new generation of  Larry games will be developed by Adventure-Mob and published worldwide by Replay Games. The first title will be out in Q4 2012. -Ish.
