Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Battle your exes. Disappoint your parents. Find yourself.
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.
Turn-based, over-the-top combat with upgrades, special abilities, and a unique mood system that lets you take advantage of vulnerabilities. Take the fight to skate punks, random suitors, and ultimately, your exes.
Skate, grind, and wall-run across Timber Hills with intricate movesets, combos, and challenges. Unravel the mysteries of Bearfoot Park while battling skate punks and their leader, Soundie the Bear.
Try to impress your mom and repair your relationship with action-packed cooking segments, while exploring a rich menu of delicious South Asian inspired dishes.
“Annapurna Interactive is the perfect partner to deliver the Thirsty Suitors narrative—a story of complex family dynamics, navigating personal relationships and, ultimately, reconciliation,” said Outerloop Games co-founder and Thirsty Suitors director Chandana Ekanayake in a press release. “Our mission at Outerloop Games is to create accessible games about underrepresented cultures, and Thirsty Suitors will give players a glimpse into our teams’ personal experiences growing up, which might be vastly different from what players have experienced themselves.”
