Indiegala recently offered the original Leisure Suit Larry for free, and now continues with three more games in the hapless loser saga. It is Leisure Suit Larry 2: In Search Of Love (In Several Wrong Places), Leisure Suit Larry 3: Passionate Patti in pursuit of thrilling pecs, and Leisure Suit Larry 5: Passionate Patti does a little undercover work. Where is the fourth game you ask? It’s kind of a story.
Al Lowe, the creator of the series, intended to make a trilogy, giving the third game an ending that tied everything together. Also, due to the crisis it took to finish Larry 3 on time, he was fed up with it all and said at the time that he would never do Leisure Suit Larry 4. When Lowe changed Of opinion later, he came up with the idea of ââgoing straight to Leisure Suit Larry 5, in which Larry has amnesia and has forgotten the value of an entire set of adventures.
All three are available for direct download at Indiegala. While the second and third have traditional text input and a lot of those dead in the Sierra game, number five is full point-and-click and has fewer dead ends. Does that make it a better game? I don’t know because I’ve never played it, but it’s hard to argue with free.
