The Developers of popular VR game Falcon Age have recently announced a new title in development, Thirsty Suitors. The trailer promises a highly stylized, unique look at a Scott Pilgrim-esque evil exes story. With many unique characters and a seemingly large amount of mechanics, with fighting, skateboarding and cooking shown in the trailer, this RPG should keep players on their toes both emotionally and in gameplay.
An official description states that Thirsty Suitors is ‘a game about culture, relationships, family pressures, and expressing oneself.’ and that the game will be played through ‘cinematic, turn-based battle sequences.’ This combat will feature ‘over-the-top combat with upgrades, special abilities, and a unique mood system that lets you take advantage of vulnerabilities.’

The aforementioned skateboarding and cooking will also play a big part in the gameplay, with the skateboarding promising to let players ‘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.’ And the cooking focuses on trying to ‘impress your mom and repair your relationship with action-packed cooking segments, while exploring a rich menu of delicious South Asian inspired dishes.’
The story seems to focus on combat scenarios leading to defeating your exes, whilst other parts of the game ask: ‘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?’ This looks like an interesting story about finding yourself, disappointing your parents and fighting your exes; seemingly looking to examine the familial pressure on young people to enter a relationship, which combined with the almost Yakuza-esque wackiness, seems like a sure way to tug heartstrings – in a fun way.
