Dubious Listing For New Leisure Suit Larry Product Pops Up On Steam
Update: Assemble Entertainment has confirmed that Leisure Suit Larry is returning with the weirdly titled Wet Dreams Don't Die, which appears to be targeting the niche Swery 65 game Dark Dreams Don't Die for parody, for some reason.
The game superficially brings Larry into the modern age of smartphones with dating app "Timber" and photo social network "Insta-Crap." Millennials!
Leisure Suit Larry's steam page lists a Q4 release date for this year, so the game is likely very close to done.
The original story is as follows:
If, after the string of mediocre-to-bad "recent" Leisure Suit Larry games, you're still hoping the character gets brought back, you may be in luck.
Steam currently has a listing for a new game in the series, which is titled "Leisure Suit Larry - Wet Dreams Don't Die," on its store for the $30. Normally this would be confirmation of a game's existence, but there are few details here that means fans should take this news with a grain of salt. The genre, developer, and developer aren't listed, and there are no images of the game shown on the page.
We do get a release date, however: Oct. 24, 2018. Which is strange, since the date is usually the last thing we know about a game. In case that listing gets taken down at some point, here's a screenshot of the page.
The last game in the series was the 2013 remake of the original game, which didn't exactly wow our own Jeff Cork. Whether this new entry some sort of anthology, collection, or a new game remains to be seen, but it's also likely this is some sort of glitch or a Kevin's Back Jack debacle.
