Leisure Suit Larry - Wet Dreams Don't Dry Coming November 7

Leisure Suit Larry - Wet Dreams Don't Dry is the seventh official Leisure Suit Larry game starring Larry Laffer, as Leisure Suit Larry 4 doesn't exist, and this fact is lampooned in the plot of Leisure Suit Larry 5. Magna Cum Laude and Box Office Bust star Larry Laffer's nephew, Larry Lovage.

It is being developed by the German game studio CrazyBunch, and, although it has had no input from series creator Al Lowe, it will be a point-and-click adventure, in the same vein as the classic Sierra series.

It will be released on the 7th of November and is currently available to pre-order for a 15% discount from and Steam.

Monday, October 8, 2018 Is 10, Sells Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine turned 10 years old this year, and to celebrate they held a sale and had added some more new games, alongside some more good old games, to their store.

One of those good old games is Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine, the 1999 LucasArts title that brought Indiana Jones into the third dimension. This game borrowed heavily from the Tomb Raider series, which was fitting since Tomb Raider borrowed from heavily from the Indiana Jones film series.

Although it's in a different genre, Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine is a sequel-of-sorts to Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, as the game sees Indiana Jones reuniting with Sophia Hapgood, the secondary player character from the earlier title.

Skybound To Finish Telltale's The Walking Dead Final Season

The official Twitter page of The Walking Dead was updated with news that Skybound, The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman's company, will be finishing the final two video game episodes of The Walking Dead: The Final Season.

Telltale previously stated that they were looking towards multiple partners to hire the staff of The Walking Dead Season Four so that they could finish the season properly. So, it looks like there's a (tiny) bit of good news for at least some the staff members that were let go from Telltale without warning last month.
