In action, Thirsty Suitors combines a unique blend of turn-based combat, acrobatic skateboarding, and cooking, all to the beat of protagonist Jala’s messy relationships, family pressures, and culture in a journey of self-expression. Turn-based, the combat will see Jala battle it out with exes, fresh suitors, and skate punks. Thirsty Suitor’s skateboarding will see Jala explore Bearfoot Park with plenty of mysteries to unravel along the way.
Here’s some sleek marketing words from Outerloop Games to get a sense of what Thirsty Suitors has in store for players:
”From Outerloop Games comes Thirsty Suitors – a game about culture, relationships, family pressures, and expressing oneself.
Can Jala handle her demanding parents, reconcile with her exes, and mend broken friendships in time for her sister’s wedding? Will she be ready for the impending visit of Nani, the family’s terrifying and judgmental matriarch?
Through the game’s story, Jala will confront her exes in cinematic, turn-based battle sequences.”
