PCGH-History: 21 years of Leisure Suit Larry
When Sierra announced last Thursday that the nephew of legendary Larry Laffer returns, we thought it could be a good idea to check the high and lows of the history of Larry. [br]
Larry Loveage returns to the gaming area. The nephew of macho man Larry Laffer will play a major role for the second time in Leisure Suit Larry Box Office Bust. The master himself is probably on the set, too, as little Larry starts a job in the Hollywood studio of his uncle.
The 3rd person adventure will feature a mix of jump'n'run, racing and puzzles and is in development by Team 17. Al Lowe, creator of Larry, is obiously not involved in the development process.
PC Games Hardware takes a look back to 21 years of Leisure Suit Larry. The great screenshot archive of Mobygames helped us a lot.
The Larry games in a nutshell:
- Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards (1987 / 1991)
- Leisure Suit Larry 2 - Goes looking for love (1988)
- Leisure Suit Larry 3 - Passionate Patti in the persuite of the pulsating pectorals (1989)

If you miss Larry 4: It never appeared. Al Lowe said after part 3 that there won't be any fourth installment of the series, so the number 4 was just skipped. Rumors say that Lowe calls Larry 4 "Leisure Suit Larry - The Missing Floppies"
