    Ahh, a game that was primarily held together, even if barely, by its humor, now with 100% more German humor! What could go wrong!

    It also looks like Larry spent some time on the rack.

    Shouldn't Larry be an obvious manlet for obvious size jokes? Do Germans not have double entendre yet?

    They should team up with SWERY, if they were bold enough to riff on D4

    Actually, LSL co-written by SWERY could be something else.

    As others said, for a game that lives or dies by its humor and idiosyncrasies of its main and secondary characters, as well as knowing what Germans did to some other franchises like Simon the Sorcerer that they took over the rights for I don't have much confidence:

    On the other hand I can't really complain about Germans continuing to keep Adventure games alive and there might be an Off-chance that they could at least pull off a "Deponia".

    I can confidently say this will be god awful as every german "funny" game I ever played was horribly cringeworthy with the humor. And yes that includes the Deadalic games :P

    Also I hate the artstyle.

    So... was Larry actually good at any point? Or people were just starved for pixel titty humor?

    LSL 6 is probably the best one in the series. A pretty huge world, a lot of interactions, pretty decent (I recall) puzzles, overall a very good game with some rather mild erotic undertones.

    Does it have unfair dead ends? I like the style of the old sierra games but I hate the dead ends they built in everywhere. I don't wanna go game over in an adventure game and have to start all over because I missed to pick up an item in the first hour of the game which I need 10 hours later :?

    If they really wanted to be contemporary, they'd be doing Leisure Suit Incel.

    I don't recall running into any, at least. Unfair dead ends were mostly a thing in early Sierra games, LSL 6 was similar to 7 in terms of puzzle design. LSL 6 has a lot more random funny deaths, BUT they basically let you immediately click the "Oops!" button and undo the decision that lead to your hilarious demise.

    Larry now looks like he has been stretched by a some gym-going chad.

    Unsurprisingly this looks like total garbage. Shitty visuals and shitty current year "humour". Absolutely Haram.

    Of course Eurogamer misses the point of the Larry games entirely and they seem to dislike the series in general and not just the post Love for Sail trash.

    A german Leisure Suit Larry game is bound to have sausages based humor.

    Eurogamer is getting slammed for this piece. There is hope in the world after all.
