While the concept may be unique, the game was a little too racy for the people at 20th Century Fox who wanted to promote more family oriented games like Porky's. So Pick Up wound up shelved indefinitely. Other than its rather adult theme, the video game market was rapidly collapsing and 20th Century Fox decided to get out of the game business. While Pick Up is fun in short bursts, its long term playability is questionable.
