Kevin Kettler of Replay Games let me know that their upcoming two games Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards: Reloaded and Fester Mudd: Curse of the Gold, are coming to GNU/Linux, probably even at the same day of the original release.
Replay Games is trying to get the word out on two popular titles coming to Linux! As you probably know, Replay has been hard at work on the remake of Leisure Suit Larry which had a very successful Kickstarter campaign. Leisure Suit Larry is one of the most iconic characters in the history of computer gaming. The game follows the life of Larry Laffer, a loveable loser who is a balding, dorky, double entendre-speaking, leisure suit-wearing “lady’s man”. The new Larry game is going to be expanded and enhanced in every detail and ready for mobile devices, PCs, and LINUX!
Replay will also be releasing a new retro style adventure game called Fester Mudd. Fester Mudd: The Curse of the Gold, is due in January 2013 on Mac, PC, iOS, and Android. The game is a throwback to the old school adventure games that dominated gaming in the 80’s and 90’s. With a western theme and strong comedic elements, Fester Mudd will be Replay’s first original intellectual property adventure title. Al Lowe, famed creator of the Leisure Suit Larry series, raved about the game, “I laughed, I cried, I laughed some more. Actually, that crying part is a lie. Fester is a good ol’ timey adventure game in the true spirit of Sierra’s best games!”
“Fester Mudd will definitely be coming to Linux at the same time we release for windows.”
For those who didn’t want to pledge to Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards: Reloaded because no GNU/Linux client was confirmed at the time, you can still pledge here!
