Tinder is launching a new game that unlocks matches based on choices you make

With the myriad dating apps on the market at the moment, it’s no wonder Tinder are trying to make theirs stand out from the rest.

Their latest effort aims to gamify the dating experience even more than it already has been, by creating an interactive choose-your-own-adventure type show.

Swipe Night, which will be available to all Tinder users, will premier on 6 October at 6pm, and be available in weekly installments on Sundays after that.

Themed around the apocalypse, daters will be asked to make a different choice every 10 to 30 seconds, with their answers dictating where they end up.

It’s not just for fun, though, as those who play are then able to unlock potential matches based on whichever choices they make.

So, if you’re ready to date someone who would also go to the Winchester, have a pint, and wait for it all to blow over, then get ready to be matched.

You’ll have six hours to play the game, after which it won’t be available anymore. For Tinder, this means that there should be plenty of people all on the app at the very same time (on Sunday night, when the dread, fear, and loneliness has really set in).

In an interview with CNBC, Tinder’s CEO Elie Seidman said: ‘It was informed by a really obvious thing, which is today’s content; whether that’s a meme, reaction through an emoji, visual content, short-form story — that’s the language of Gen Z,

‘They’re bonding over a shared experience.’

It was written by Karena Evans, who made such Drake videos as Nice for What, God’s Plan, and In My Feelings. Other writers come from shows like Big Mouth and Insecure, with the target market being firmly older Gen Z and younger Millennials. This demographic already makes up around half of Tinder users.

They may also do another one if this goes well. Perhaps the next one will have a slightly cheerier theme, but let’s not pretend the dating landscape is anything other than terrifying right now.
