Game release: “Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Don’t Dry” (PC)

CrazyBunch and Assemble Entertainment bring back a classic adventure gaming icon with Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Don’t Dry.

Despite having had a short re-appearance in the fun Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded I already reviewed, it has been over two decades since the last true sequel Leisure Suit Larry: Love for Sail presented the amorous adventures of a man who usually fails in the most terrible and funniest ways. Not taking the more arcade-heavy and supposedly forgettable Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude and Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust into consideration which featured a different character anyway, the time seems ripe for some adult-themed point-and-click adventuring.

This time Larry falls in love with Faith, an assistant to the head of Prune, a world-leading enterprise in modern technology, so the middle (or late) aged man has to learn how to use new ways of communication as well as dating. In this case it’s Timber, a phone dating app that allows Larry to raise his score in order to finally, well… score with the lady of his dreams. Keeping up to date with locations where to meet women and how to please them is the only way to collect these points, as outrageous and silly as it sounds. However, anyone who’s played previous Leisure Suit Larry games knows that it’s not as misogynist as it seems to be, as the series is as much about slapstick humor as it’s about making fun of social standards, and here it’s obviously social media, as can be seen with apps like Instacrap.

Of course the sexual references and also some nudity aren’t for everyone, but the great comic look and convincing voice acting should still make classic point-and-click adventure fans try this game. If the humor ends up to be as witty as the original Al Lowe games or just too riddled with f-words and tasteless scenes remains to be seen. However, having Larry experience and stumble over modern technology seems to be funny enough to make it stick out from other comedy adventures.
