Video games have been game-ifying conversations for ages, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen the concept handled quite like Thirsty Suitors. A game about culture, family, and relationships from Outerloop Games and publisher Annapurna Interactive, Thirsty Suitors is a turn-based RPG where protagonist Jala will have to contend with the expectations of her family, her various exes, and more before her sister’s wedding.

First revealed during last year’s Game Awards, we got a closer look at the game during the Tribeca Games Showcase. You can give it a look below, starting at around the 17:00 minute mark.
