“The consumer demand for an Adults Only-rated version of Leisure Suit Larry prompted VU Games to give the fans what they’ve been asking for,” said Philip W. O’Neil, President, North America, Vivendi Universal Games. “In Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude – Uncut and Uncensored we’re taking a walk on a wilder side with even more outlandish misadventures and sexual escapades.”
Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude is the coming of age story of Larry Lovage, nephew of Larry Laffer, the series’ original lovable loser. The game follows the racy and often randy hijinks of Lovage, a sixth-year-senior enrolled at the local community college, as he attempts to get the attention of a bevy of bodacious on-campus beauties. When a reality TV dating show comes to campus, Larry decides he's going to revitalize his life by winning the contest and proving once and for all that he can live up to the shining example set by his Old Uncle Larry. However, over the course of the game Larry finds, much like his uncle, that the best laid plans don’t always go as intended.
Players will be able to experience hilarious college moments as they explore 17 different locations on and around the college campus, interacting with sexy female characters and playing dozens of mini-games, including Quarters, Tapper, Trampoline and Wet T-shirt Contests. With more than 90,000 words of dialogue, players can create custom conversations in real time as Larry speaks with more than 15 beautiful girls, and interacts with a host of other characters.
