We’ve been watching with envy as Falcon Age studio Outerloop’s vibrant South-Asian narrative game, Thirsty Suitors, has been displaying off its gorgeously goofy ex-fighting motion RPG by way of their writer, Annapurna. We assumed we weren’t going to see it on Switch — however how fallacious we have been, as right this moment’s Annapurna showcase confirmed that the game could be coming to Switch alongside different platforms.
Thirsty Suitors is a game that tells a narrative of South Asian tradition, from its selection of colors to its cooking minigame, with over-protective dad and mom, a skateboarding mechanic, and a fight system that is constructed round flirting and insults. Protagonist Jala returns dwelling to her household after just a few years to find that her exes all wish to struggle and/or kiss her.
Creative director Chandana Ekanayake, whose expertise as a baby of a Sri Lankan household in America has knowledgeable plenty of the story’s background and design, teamed up with 80 Days author Meghna Jayanth to create a story that spoke about their lives and tales in an business that not often tackles South Asian illustration.
As Ekanayake mentioned in an interview with Wired, Thirsty Suitors is “the first game where we’re making it for ourselves.”
There’s no launch date but, however a demo is available on Steam if you wish to test it out.
