Replay Games has announced that it is teaming up with series creator Al Lowe to create HD remakes of the Leisure Suit Larry adventure games.

Having sold over 10 million copies over the course of eight games and 24 years, Leisure Suit Larry is one of the most successful adventure games series ever made. Each of the eight games typically features the eponymous Larry as he tries to seduce proportionately unlikely ladies.

Replay Games has said that the remakes, which will start with the first game Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards, will lead into a series revival should they prove successful.

It should be pointed out that numerous Leisure Suit Larry games have been remade before - the 1987 release of Land of the Lounge Lizards was previously rebuilt with new graphics in 1991, for example.

'We originally hooked players with the concept of a naughty game that was unusual and not found anywhere else,' Lowe told VentureBeat.

'They stayed and liked the games because they were funny. My goal is to make it funny, and there is a sore lack of humour today in video games.'
