If you’ve never played Larry’s Leisure Suit at the Land of the Lounge Lizards, well, the truth is, it’s probably too late now. What seemed risky in 1987 wouldn’t raise an eyebrow today, and while I don’t skip specific examples right away, I’m reasonably sure there are at least a couple of jokes that haven’t aged well.
Still, it’s an iconic video game, one of the innovative adventures that Sierra established as a powerhouse in the early days of the PC game, and so if you’ve never played it but want to, you can now enter without spending a penny courtesy of a gift to Indiegala.
The name of the game is simple: You, Larry Laffer, are a short, bald, middle-aged man with a terrible taste in clothes who has recently moved on to the loss of Lost Wages. And now it's time to spend a night in the city, starting at Lefty's Bar and ending, hopefully, with the woman of your dreams.
Note that this is the really OG version of Leisure Suit Larry and not one of the updates, so it uses a text parser for input [there is no mouse here] and is delivered as a download direct rather than as key. You will also die a lot, without warning and for stupid reasons. It is certainly an old experience.
Still, you can’t beat the price, and if you’re having fun, but want it to be a little more modern, it’s also an option: for $ 10, GOG has the VGA remake along with most of the games in the series in its Larry Leisure Suit package, while the $ 5 reloaded version in the Microsoft Store is an update with new graphics, audio, scenes and jokes.
