Replay Games has written into Phoronix to talk about two commercial game titles that they will be bringing to Linux.

The two games coming out of Replay Games for Linux is "Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards: Reloaded" and "Fester Mudd: The Curse of the Gold" will be out soon for the penguin operating system.

About the Leisure Suit Larry successor, Replay writes, " Replay has been hard at work on the remake of Leisure Suit Larry which had a very successful Kickstarter campaign. Leisure Suit Larry is one of the most iconic characters in the history of computer gaming. The game follows the life of Larry Laffer, a loveable loser who is a balding, dorky, double entendre-speaking, leisure suit-wearing "lady’s man". The new Larry game is going to be expanded and enhanced in every detail and ready for mobile devices, PCs, and LINUX!"

Replay raised $655,182 of a $500k Kickstarter goal to develop this Leisure Suit Larry successor.

About the Fester Medd game, it is described as, "a throwback to the old school adventure games that dominated gaming in the 80’s and 90’s. With a western theme and strong comedic elements, Fester Mudd will be Replay’s first original intellectual property adventure title."

Below are the video trailers on these two peculiar games that are coming natively to Linux that will be distributed via Valve's Steam client.
