Holy crap, that game is still around? I mean, don't get me wrong, I use to play the original all the time, and then the 3d sequel came out, and my old computer couldn't run it.

I always figured it would'a...evolved a bit more?

glad you like this one

you guys notice how much more fun these games are on our 1900x1080 monitors. How in gods name did i ever pay this stuff on a monochrome monitor?

monochrome monitor; brings back the some sweet memories. leisure suit larry in a nice shade of green and yes the first monochrome crack because who could afford a color monitor 15 years ago.

since i'm aging myself, who here remembers cracking games in DOS? ahhh that was a true art form
