    Subversive, sardonic, brimming with wit and a merciless satire of 21st century dating culture. This is the heart and soul of Leisure Suit Larry, updated for the digital age. Extraordinary puzzle design and brilliant writing make Wet Dreams Don't Dry a must-play addition to the Leisure Suit Larry canon. True adventure game fans take note, this is very much the Leisure Suit Larry 8 you've dreamed of and never thought you'd get to actually play.

    Leisure Suit Larry is back and that’s a good thing. The game keeps the charm and humor of the first games and puts it right into the 21st century.

    Wet Dreams Don’t Dry is an excellent addition to the Larry brand. Fans of the original games will not be disappointed, and newcomers will find a solid series introduction playing the lovable loser updated to present day.

    Wet Dreams Don't Dry offers, what Larry fans are expecting. Fans of subtle humor should take a bypass road.

    A welcome return of one of the most beloved point'n click characters on the 90's, and excellent game that may be too easy to be a perfect homage.

    Wet Dreams Don’t Dry is funny but, like its main characters, lose in the ending. Its not particularly innovative or wit, but it’s well built and try its best to revive its icon with a new, updated look.

    Larry is back: the real oldschool Larry with fun puzzles and nice 2D graphics. Recommended for retro-fans like me.

Don’t trust the negative user scores. I know that the guy with the 3 point negative review didn’t even play the game but - why ever - just already didn’t like the game and it’s visuals even months before it was released and it’s also pretty suspicious that none of the negative scores that suddenly got in (the game had 7.5 user score a few days ago, similar to the critic’s average) were able to back up their score with any reasons - Five accounts just have voted the game and every positive review down with very little effort within half an hour. Make of that what you will ...

    Anyway, didn‘t expect too much when I first heard of it but in the end LSL: Wet Dreams Don‘t Dry has become a very good classic Point’n’click adventure with a neatly balanced puzzle difficulty, quirky characters and a funny story.

    I also liked the in-game time jump from 1987 to 2018 which has resulted in the game being full to the brim with witty references to our modern social media culture but also plenty of nods to the older LSL games (You can die in the game for example but without much consequences as autosave reloads you directly to the last point before Larry bit the dust).

    Pros:
    - Plenty of classic (inventory-based) puzzles with usually perfectly balanced difficulty.
    - Sure, it’s possible to get stuck from time to time but normally as long as you pay attention and revisit locations/NPCs help from a walkthrough should hardly ever be necessary.
    - Long playing time, especially for an adventure (~15 hours)
    - Easy, efficient controls
    - Great gameflow, you usually always know what has to be done next in order to further the story
    - Nice humor with lots of funny cultural references
    - World is full of positively weird and quirky NPCs
    - A lot of usable items, which speaks for the great variety in puzzles and quests. Of course the size of the game’s inventory can look intimidating as it blows up quickly at first. You sometimes have 20 items or more. It usually gets obvious what to use where and when though which is a very impressive feat imo considering the item count.
    - Story always stays interesting, as you just want to help Larry getting his "Timber" score to 90

    Cons:
    - Some errors with the English Localization. Most are just smaller spelling, grammatical errors but there are also instances where the text doesn’t match the spoken word. For example, one bouncer says Larry can only enter his club when his Timber score is at least 25. In the subtitles it says 40 though.
    - The German voice of Larry doesn’t fit at all and his lines often lack any emotion. Even though he’s the German voice of Barney Stinson of HIMYM, he didn’t do a very good job in this game and it doesn’t sound as if he felt like making a lot of effort.
    - Because of this I switched to English after a while (which is pretty rare for me with a game from a German developer). But the English speaker does a much better job, the only drawback being that his high pitched voice doesn’t fit the new taller, leaner version of Larry as much anymore. Luckily, most of the other characters are voiced fittingly and flawlessly though.
    - In rare circumstances - nearly always if one overlooks something - it’s still possible to get stuck for a bit of course and you just have to play around a little and try certain items from your inventory on other objects just to see if it leads to something. These instances are rare and far between and rather typical of a challenging, classic PnC game anyway, but some people might be deterred by it. Maybe a hint function would have helped in that regard though.
    - The humor and Larry’s sexual innuendos probably aren’t for anybody, especially today. But he’s a guy from the 80s who overslept the past 30 years after all.

    The first cons can probably be explained by limited budget and time constraints. All in all LSL: WDDD is a great classic Point’n’click adventure with very good production value, an amusing story and funny characters. The devs showed a great love for details and packed the game with challenging, yet still logical puzzles. For anybody who likes classic, puzzle-heavy Point’n’Click adventures - games in the vein of Monkey Island or some of the titles from Daedalic for example - this is a must buy.

    This newest additiion to the Larry series is great. IT finally goes back to the roots and delivers a charming and funny game.
    It's hard not to laugh with all the subtle and more often not so subtle hints to existing persons, companys, apps
    Everyone who likes point and click adventures should be playing this. It's not like humor filled ones are abundant these days.

A thoroughly enjoyable adventure game that is full of clever puzzles and funny characters. If you are a fan of the old adventure games, give this game a go, you wont regret it. If you are a new fan... jump in both feet at a time, you'll have a blast.

    Leisure Suite Larry: Wet Dreams don't dry is not the best point-to-click adventure I've played. But voices and jokes are well done.
    The progress while playing is however new and annoying for adventure games. You'll find far too many items that you won't be able to use until much later. In addition, at the same time you are confronted with far too many puzzles that require items that you can't find yet. This always leads to frustrating moments when you combine all kinds of items only to find out that you can't find the required items yet and as soon as you finally get into a new area, the required items literally fly towards you without any enjoyable effort. This way the once stubborn puzzles are mastered far too easily and without any fun in puzzling or combining.
