Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Dry Twice, Analysis

We analyze the continuation of the modern adventures of the flirt Larry Laffer, a living story of adventure games. A cool game full of spicy humor.

In late 2018, the long-suffering followers of the graphic adventure genre were taking away some of the greatest joys of recent times. Surprisingly, without prior notice we find a new installment of the mythical and highly anticipated saga of adventure games Leisure Suit Larry, one of the great icons of the genre’s golden age. Despite the main protagonist’s shocking physical changes and an update to the series’ somewhat stale and macho message to put these elements behind, Wet Dreams Don t Dry kept the charm of the saga and turned out to be a great graphic adventure that restored what is best of the genre’s classical taste, for the good and to a lesser extent for the bad, as we noted in his analysis. The saga, which lasted between 1987 and 1996 (we tried to forget the unfortunate spin-offs of 2004 and 2009 …), returned to bring us one of the best modern graphic adventures, in a title that completely captured us.

Two years later, and again completely surprised (we knew nothing about him at all until nearly a month ago), German studio CrazyBunch brings us the direct continuation of his first foray with our favorite flirt, this Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Dry Twice , which we liked or liked more than its predecessor, despite, yes, a totally ongoing proposition that almost nothing has changed or evolved regarding that one thing. Starting immediately after the events of the previous title, we find ourselves once again with a completely classic graphic adventure, intended for an adult audience due to its constant sexual references (although it never shows anything explicit), overflowing with spicy and uploaded humor in tone and that offers us a charismatic protagonist who tries to put behind him all those archaic and misplaced clichés he suffered in the already distant 1990s.

Despite being a direct continuation of Wet Dreams Don’t Dry and starting immediately after the events of that title, it is not necessary to have played that title to enjoy it, although we strongly recommend you do so if you still have haven’t tried it, as it’s one of our favorite modern graphic adventures and you’ll better understand the title that keeps us busy today. Considering how well the formula worked, CrazyBunch has hardly changed anything, to give us a longer adventure than the previous one, but that’s playable and visually similar to this one. Few graphic adventures launched in recent years have given us such a classic flavor as these two modern forays from good old Larry, and the truth is, they are two games we love. They are, of course, quite challenging and use that crazy logic that there was so much headache at the time in various exponents of the genre.
