    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.

    Despite being a bit niche, for those who are fans of the series or are looking to get into the Leisure Suit Larry franchise, Wet Dreams Don’t Die serves as an ample entry point for both virgins and veterans.

    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.

    A solid point-and-click adventure with a fresh twist, though it stumbles into many of the standard pitfalls for the genre. The story is largely respectable and interesting, while not at the top of the pile. If you’re a big fan of the genre or an old fan of Larry who wants to check in on him, you should absolutely give this game a go as close to release as you can. For everyone else, a fun time lies in wait, provided you can tolerate the infuriating puzzles.

    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.

    Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Don't Dry is part tribute, part return to form, and, finally, probably the best attempt to bring the series to the new millennium so far. While this is certainly a breath of fresh air after the retched Box Office Bust, however, it could also be much better, first from a gameplay standpoint, but especially when it comes to its naughty humour.

    So far I love it. It's funny, challenging and it feels exactly like playing the old games outside of some modern gameplay improvements (ie:So far I love it.

    And here we have Larry again. Wet dreams don't dry and wet brands are milked forever. Let's get this straight - it's a rip-off. But who caresAnd here we have Larry again. Wet dreams don't dry and wet brands are milked forever. Let's get this straight - it's a rip-off. But who cares if it's great? I love it, I've just played 7th and to be honest, this one makes me laugh louder (I don't laugh to a computer, I'm not some kind of a weirdo, let's say I've just smiled). Great job, 2/10. I got you! I don't like a few puns and the humour is from recent times which isn't a minus, but I just miss the old times like a grandpa or something. I have a great time but I can't rate it 10 because it's Larry and he is a legend. You can't rate 10/10 on a rip-off ok? But it's awesome to feel like a child again. (I definitely didn't play Larry when I was a kid ok? Definitely.) Expand

    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.

    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.

    - Looks like a flash game
    - That's not Larry
    - No Al Lowe - Bad writing and joke that try to monkey the original but don't come even close
