Our own Monica Rose had the opportunity to preview Thirsty Suitors during the 2023 Summer Games Fest. She highly praised the experience, highlighting that its writing was “…heartbreaking, relatable, and hysterical all at once.” It convinced me to wishlist Thirsty Suitors alongside the game’s deeply human perspective and sheer commitment to skateboarding as a key traversal mechanic, which, honestly, I wish more games did. All in all, I think Thirsty Suitors looks to offer fans of personal journeys, turn-based battles, and stylish visuals something to look forward to in the coming autumn months.
