Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Don’t Dry is a real game that’s coming this year

Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Don’t Dry is a real game, which really exists, and will really come out this year - assuming the release schedule holds. Larry’s latest is a traditional point-and-click adventure with hand-drawn art, which will see him thrust out of the '80s and straight into the modern world.

The Steam page comes complete with a description of the game straight from Larry’s perspective: “While my view of the world and women from way back in the 1980s collides with modern reality harder than the breasts of a lusciously stacked blonde jogging along a beach, I’m all set to date my way across the modern world!” So, yes, it’s definitely a Leisure Suit Larry game.

Larry's been outclassed lately by the best sex games on PC.

Casting Larry as a man out of time and out of touch is perhaps the best direction for the series and the art displayed in the screenshots looks pretty good, so this may prove a more successful attempt to revive the series than, say, Box Office Bust. The game’s scheduled to launch Q4 of this year, and with a 15% pre-order discount, the price on Steam is set at $25.49 / £22.09 / €25.49.

Leisure Suit Larry has had an awkward go of it in the modern era, and not just because of our protagonist’s dated views on dating. After upheavals in ownership of the property between Codemasters and Replay Games, the rights seem to have ended up with German publisher Assemble Entertainment.

They published Leisure Suit Larry 1-7 and Magna Cum Laude on Steam last year, and will publish the new title as well. (Curiously, the Reloaded remake from Replay is only available on GOG, and Codemasters is still listed as the publisher for the older games there.)

Wet Dreams Don’t Dry, which prematurely popped onto Steam a few days ago, is in development from CrazyBunch, which has created a number of smaller indie and VR titles. Their one previous point-and-click adventure, Anna’s Quest, was developed in collaboration with Daedalic Entertainment (of Deponia fame) and has enjoyed a positive reception on Steam.

I sure didn’t expect a new Leisure Suit Larry this year - least of all one with a title referencing Swery’s Dark Dreams Don’t Die - but 2018 is a wild time. We’ll find out how it all ends up later this year.
