Wet Dreams Don’t Dry Review –

Despite my love of NES adventure games like Shadowgate, Uninvited and Princess Tomato, our family didn’t grow up with computers in the 90s. Unfortunately, I missed out on classic LucasArts and Sierra adventures like Monkey Island, Full Throttle, and Sam & Max. As a typical teenager in the late 90s, one of the series I always wanted to play was the adult themed Leisure Suit Larry game. I avoided the games that came out on home consoles, Magna Cum Laude and Box Office Bust, because of the terrible reviews. I was shocked to see a new game on the Nintendo Switch called Wet Dreams Don’t Dry. After all these years, this is the first time I’ve been able to experience this infamous series.

The game begins with the hero Larry Laffer in the modern 21st century. The century is waking up. He finds his favorite bar, Lefty’s, and quickly realizes that it no longer exists in the late 1980s, but has been transplanted 30 years into the future. Larry is a hopeless, unattractive middle-aged loser whose entire mind is focused on sex. Besides having no filters and little shame, he is now an absolute dinosaur and has to adapt to all the new technologies of today. After getting a lot of help from other characters in New Lost Wages, he gets his own PiPhone and learns about Uunter, InstaCrap, Farcebook and, most importantly, the Timber dating app.

The overall goal, besides figuring out why and how he ended up in the future, is to get your Timber score up to 90 so you can date Faith, a beautiful but mysterious woman who works with Bill Jobs at Prune Technologies. You increase your Timber score by interacting with, helping and possibly meeting the 30 or so people whose paths cross in the city.

This is a classic point-and-click adventure game from start to finish. There are about 30 unique places and 30 crazy characters to meet. These people will have a wide range of problems for which you will need to help them. As they finish, new areas are unlocked and the story slowly unfolds. As with any typical adventure title, each zone is filled with items you can collect and interact with. If you get stuck, you should try many different things and apply everything to everything. Some puzzles are relatively easy to decipher, but there are many that puzzled me for a while.

As you talk and get to know all your new acquaintances, you have many conversations. There are usually three or four comments or questions to choose from, and one of them is almost always extremely perverse. The people you meet are all very different because they all match various stereotypes and clichés of the modern American. The writing style is quite clever, and the playing voice is very accurate. The story is surprisingly funny, and while the game is full of content and rude and sexual innuendo, it achieves a good balance of humor and isn’t as over the top as I predicted.

The controls are very simple and the game can be played both on TV and in portable mode. Move the cursor around the screen and the down button displays all the interactive elements. With PiPhone you can access Timber, InstaCrap or call Uunter to move locations. The people are very lively and very talented. They are all memorable and full of hilarious jokes. They range from sexy camera model Erin to GMILF Bea, who runs Leisure Suite, an adult toy store, to Lance & Dick Ryder, ex-lovers who help you get back together, and Kyle & Finley, a parody of Apple’s geniuses.

The backgrounds are bright and colorful with a good dose of humor – most of them sexy. You go to a local gym, a hip bar, a subway club, a police station, and so on. The soundtrack of this game is mostly light jazz, which serves as useful background music. The voice is played perfectly and well. Larry’s actor is Ian Rabson, who served as Larry’s voice in many classic games of the 1990s. Despite Larry’s many flaws and pettiness, Rabson helps make Larry a man you like.

I’m sure I missed a lot of jokes because I never played the original credits. This game seems to be a direct sequel to the very first title Lounge Lizards Land, as the opening sequence has a 1987 calendar in the background. The creator of the original series, Al Lowe, was not involved in the game, but the German development team, CrazyBunch, did a phenomenal job. The best humor in the game is in the cutscenes, which are saved to your InstaCrap. It records Larry’s outrageous actions.

My biggest complaint was the constant shifting between zones, which is obviously part of any adventure game, but at some point I felt like I was overdoing it. This can become very difficult as more and more domains are unlocked and you have so many agendas at once. Another drawback is that some sentences still get triggered when you’re stuck and have already tried everything. After hearing the same lame one-liner four or five times in a row, I sometimes thought about the game. It’s certainly not for everyone and has a few disappearing lines and plenty of raw moments, but it’s definitely a product of modern times and offers far more variety and insight than the extremely dated, sexist, homophobic and violent humour of the 1980s.

Final thoughts : GOOD PAGE

It’s really great to see Nintendo allowing very mature games on its system. There’s no shortage of adventure games on the Switch, and this is certainly one of the most entertaining. This game should last more than 10 hours and offers a healthy and fair challenge. The main deterrent for buyers will be the price of $39.99, which seems quite high compared to other games of the genre. Wet Dreams Don’t Dry is full of laugh-out-loud characters and plenty of humor that ridicules both the modern world and Larry’s past experiences.

Aaron got his NES in 1991 and he has loved and collected video games ever since. Besides gambling, he enjoys Stephen King novels, twin baseball and his cats.
