Surprisingly, Leisure Suit Larry is Back for another cheap round

Love it or hate it, Leisure Suit Larry is back for another adventure. The soon to be released Wet Dreams Dry Twice is the follow up to 2018 title Wet Dreams Don’t Dry.

Larry has been creeping up our screens with sexual innuendo, dick jokes and more scantly clad women than the Playboy mansion since the late 80’s. The last instalment back in 2018 managed to somehow avoid any major backlash even though it’s release coincided with the #metoo movement.

Adding to that, it was only a month ago we were reporting on women in gaming speaking up against sexual misconduct in the industry. We saw the hashtag TwitchBlackout gaming momentum on Twitter and I think it’s fair to say now more than ever is a time to tread lightly when it comes to treating everyone, regardless of sex or race, as equal.

With all that in mind Publisher Assemble Entertainment and developer Crazybunch have decided to throw caution to the wind, yesterday announcing the second instalment in the Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Series, Wet Dreams Dry Twice.

Assemble Entertainment

The Leisure Suit Larry series is a point and click adventure game with an overriding theme of sexual innuendo and generally objectifying women. You play as Larry Laffer, a man rapidly approaching middle age, performing quests or minigames in order to impress the opposite sex while he looks for Mrs Right, or at lease Mrs Right-Now.

In Wet Dreams Dry Twice you guide Larry in his self-made boat through various islands “each featuring their own sensual surprises”.

Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Dry Twice

To be honest, I’m really not sure how I feel about this one. Even playing some of the earlier releases back in the day the mentality and attitude towards women felt sleazy and dated. It will be interesting to see if Assemble Entertainment have managed to revitalize the series with a fresh satirical take on the current climate, or if they are going to continue to flog the same dead horse for a few cheap laughs.

So if you’re a 12-year-old or just a dirty old man living in the past then get ready to have virtual women flock to you, as Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Dry Twice arrives on PC October 15.
