The adventures of Leisure Suit Larry protagonist Larry Laffer will continue in an upcoming poker game for mobile devices, series creator Al Lowe has told Polygon. Called Leisure Suit Larry's Casino, the game will be a remake of a 1998 game of the same name that was made for the Windows PC platform. No other details were revealed, but I'd suspect we'll be seeing the same updated art style that was used for Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded. Also, Lowe confirmed the game will be exclusive to mobile devices and will be free-to-play.
Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded, itself a modern remake of the 1987 original, launched for mobile devices last month to very mixed reviews from both critics and gamers alike. We found it pretty entertaining ourselves, though that's coming as fans of the original game. Newcomers were likely to find the humor overly dated and tough to relate to if you're older than, well, let's say nine. Unfortunately, the rest of Lowe's interview with Polygon focuses on the fairly poor reception that Reloaded has received so far, citing factors such as an over saturated marketplace and lack of real marketing budget following the games higher-than-expected development costs.
Still, as a Kickstarter game that actually came to fruition, Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded is a cool love letter to fans of the original, and I'll definitely be interested to see how Leisure Suit Larry's Casino turns out when it launches sometime next year.
