LSLWDDD

Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Don't Dry is a soft-reboot of the Larry franchise that continues from essentially a mix of Larry Reloaded, Larry VGA, and LSL1 AGI. Developer: Crazy Bunch, Publisher: Assemble Entertainment. Licensing by Codemasters.

BackgroundEdit

Larry moves straight from the 80s into the 21st century. In times of #metoo and online dating via smartphone, Larry has to find his way around.

Hey ladies, I'm back in business!

My new adventure, Leisure Suit Larry - Wet dreams don't dry, takes me - whatever the route or twist of fate - from the end of the '80s directly to the 21st Century and wow, how the world has changed! 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!

"In a point & click adventure I'd call typical for the genre we mutually experience how I fall head-over-heels in love with Faith, the hot-to-trot assistant to the boss at Prune, a technology enterprise successful worldwide. Since even dating is done digitally nowadays, the first thing I have to do is to work on my score at Timber, the totally hip, can't-get-anywhere-without-it dating app where I date women, satisfy their needs, and accordingly pick up points for my Timber profile. And whenever I get a chance in between, always briefly check out a few new bikini pix at Instacrap - the 21st century is gnarly smill!"

Behind the scenesEdit

Contrary to popular belief, it is a misconception that this game's title was based on D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die (a relatively obscure and niche adventure game on the X-Box One). It is mere coincidence.[1]

In the game Larry's memories only go back as far as 1987 just after Larry 1.

There are potential references to Larry 2/3 in reference to Larry disappearing on a tropical island, and an island developers have said is Nontoonyt can be seen in the distance from Pier 69.

The references to Aliens abducting Larry might be a reference to events of Leisure Suit Larry: Lust in Space (though chronologically different events).

There are nods to Larry Reloaded as well as earlier versions of Larry 1. For example the underground 'factory' is based on the Sierra World version from the EGA game. The inside of Lefty's Bar is based on the EGA version, while the outside of Lefty's Bar is based on the VGA version. As for Reloaded references, Larry remembers filling sex doll with helium, and his actions with it from Reloaded. Lefty is based on his Reloaded version. The remains of the Pimp is a mix of the VGA and Reloaded versions of the character. The “hotel” room is based on the VGA and Reloaded versions.

It's hard to pinpoint as to what to call this game or categorize it... It's not Larry 8, 9 or 10 or anything like that. Since its a follow up to Larry 1 technically, it might be considered 1½. But its also a follow up to Larry Reloaded so it could be seen as essentially Larry Reloaded 2. or Larry Reloaded 1½ (originally Reloaded 2 was going to be a remake of LSL2). It doesn't end with Larry returning to his own time frame however, and the game more or less treats it as 'breaking from original canon' as explained when he is arrested. So in a way an alternate reality, though his adventures apparently still happened without him (becoming the video games from the 80s/90s that Nari remembers playing). Now with the the sequel being called "Wet Dreams Dry Twice", it might also be called LSLWD1.
