Leisure Suit Larry 5

Leisure Suit Larry 5: : Passionate Patti Does a Little Undercover Work was the fourth game in the Leisure Suit Larry Series.  Al Lowe originally intended for the series to be wrapped up at the end of a trilogy.  Because of this, he purposefully skipped a number for the next Larry title.  The game is based around this, as the villian steals the Leisure Suit Larry 4 floppies, and Larry gets amnesia.  When Larry wakes up, he works in a porn production company, and is tasked to travel the United States in search of three girls to star in a television show, while he tries to regain his memory.

Leisure Suit Larry 5 is now supported by ScummVM, a program designed to let 2D adventure games run on multiple platforms. With ScummVM, Maniac Mansion now runs on modern versions of windows, as well as Linux, Mac OS X, and many consoles such as Dreamcast, Wii, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation Portable.
