Vivendi Games Mobile Gives Leisure Suit Larry Fans a Chance to Tell All and Win a Wii system
MySpace Promotion Enables Mobile Subscribers To Post Dating Catastrophes; Win Prizes
PARIS – July 30, 2007 –Vivendi Games Mobile, a division of Vivendi Games,
today announced an online contest for mobile phone subscribers in
Europe to support the recent launch of Leisure Suit Larry®: Love for
Sail. Fans of Leisure Suit Larry can post their ‘worst date ever’
stories on Larry’s blog for a chance to win a Wii™ system.
Mobile subscribers can enter the contest by posting their worst date

France, Germany, Italy and Spain who have posted their ‘worst date
ever’ story will be selected by Vivendi Games Mobile to receive a Wii
“This unique contest will give Leisure Suit Larry fans
the chance to share their most Larryesque dating experiences with a
worldwide audience, and enjoy the consolation of receiving the hottest
gaming console of the moment,” said Paul Maglione, president of Vivendi
Games Mobile. “Terrible dates are something that everyone experiences
but few ever really talk about, so this is a chance to celebrate
Larryness and engage in some collective laughter therapy courtesy of
Nintendo and MySpace.”
The iconic Leisure Suit Larry videogame
franchise is based on the dating trials and tribulations of Larry
Laffer, a 38-year-old geek with playboy-like pretensions. In Love for
Sail, Larry finds himself aboard a cruise ship for the trip of a
lifetime, with the holiday theme providing the perfect context for
summer mobile gaming fun. Larry’s adventures have been adapted to a
global, all-ages mobile audience; while retaining the cartoon-style
graphics, puzzle-solving gameplay, and humorous storyline that have
made Larry one of the most distinctive videogame personalities ever.
To be eligible for the contest, users have until 07/08/07 at 23h59 to post
their worst date story to the Leisure Suit Larry: Love for Sail Myspace
Web page. Fans can also download wallpapers and Instant Messenger Buddy
Icons from Larry’s page at http://www.myspace.com/larryLoveforSail .
Leisure Suit Larry: Love for Sail is now available on wireless networks
throughout Australia, New Zealand, and across Europe, where it is
already among the most popular mobile games of the summer; and will
soon be launching on carriers in North America as well.
