The Game Awards 2021 started the video game reveals right out of the gate. Even before the big event kicked off, there were multiple some world premieres during what is technically the pre-show. One of those announcements was a new title from Outerloop Games and published by Annapurna Interactive, Thirsty Suitors.
Thirsty Suiters showed off some of what’s assumed to be gameplay. The big takeaway from the short clip was the number of different genres the game calls upon. There was a fight scene queued up like a Street Fighter match, sim cooking section, and even a Tony Hawk-esque showcase of sick moves.
The main character, Jala, is shown interacting with their parents, which paints it as maybe an action RPG title on its trip around the genre lane. From the game’s YouTube description, Thirsty Suitors is described as a “stylish, story-driven adventure that unfolds through turn-based battles, skateboarding, and cooking.”
Thirsty Suiters didn’t announce a release date at this time. Outerloop Games previously developed the game Falcon Age. The only mention of a potential launch was a “Coming Soon” splash screen at the end of the trailer. Visually, at least, it looks like the title is well into its development.
This story is in development.
