Someone on Tinder made a game about what it’s like to date him
There is a bottomless dressing box full of things people look for in a partner. Maybe you prefer someone who is funny or empathetic, I feel lucky to have ended up with someone who never had an AJR phase. And I’m sure there’s a person out there somewhere who wouldn’t want to date someone who hasn’t demonstrated their proficiency in C++ within 40 seconds of meeting them. And for that person, that Tinder user who made an entire lo-fi video game about dating him is probably the one.
Games journalist Imogen Mellor first discovered the game after its creator super-liked her profile on Tinder (that’s an extra, extra like for those folks back home who can’t remember the horrors of online dating) had promised.
“I swear to God,” she said on Twitter“someone just great [Liked] me on tinder and they made a game about dating them????? and you can actually PLAY it???”
The game is a 32-bit slice-of-life, complete with a character creator and seemingly unsolicited Zelda: Breath of the Wild approval.

However, unlike other 32-bit indie games, this one is tailored precisely to its creator’s dating needs.
“It’s a browser game that includes information about the creator, his hobbies, passions, food preferences, a small video of foxes playing in their garden, a 3D model of their home and a compatibility test.” Mellor tweeted. “I’m floored.” She didn’t respond to that kotaku‘s request for comments in time for publication.
Providing strangers with a 3D model of your home feels like a security risk to me personally, but I think it’s important to plan your exits whenever you’re dating a gamer. This one in particular “was working on an AI capable of becoming a grandmaster Starcraft II” Mellor saidand she has not “Just swipe left or right from Brain Freeze if I just want to talk to him.”
“That person has to be very specific with the type of women they pursue,” she said. “Actually, the game suggests that with a full list of things they’re looking for in a person.” Well, it’s clear we all learned something from that. Online dating lets everyone act in a very healthy and normal way. good luck out there
