The planned late May release for Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded has been pushed back into late June as the folks behind Larry Laffer's return are after more time polishing the hi-def 'remake' of the original 1987 game.
Better visuals and fully vocalised audio await in Reloaded, which was helped by a Kickstarter back in April 2012. This isn't a simple remake but a "much better game" than originally created.
Leisure Suit Larry creator Al Lowe didn't want to just slap in HD graphics and audio. It will also give them the chance to clean up the game's puzzles.
"One of our goals with doing this remake was not to do a remake. We didn’t just want to port the game over with higher-res and better graphics. We wanted to do a much better game and it gave me a chance to fix some of the puzzles that I’ve hated for twenty five years that I wish I had changed back when," said Al Lowe.
The Kickstarter raised just over $655k. Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded was originally intended to release in March 2013, before it delayed until late May/early June, and is now delayed again until late June.
It releases on PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android.
