‘The Game’ app lets users spend and earn points to chat with a potential match.
The Game is a new app that will make online dating easy and fun again. The mobile app strips away complicated algorithms, or lengthy questionnaires, and what is left is just a clean interface with a simple to follow process.
As an incentive to use the app, users are able to collect and use points every time they contact someone. On the initial screen, users are shown three prospect matches and snippets of information about each one. They can select a candidate to “start a game” with, where every time they ask a question, they are charged 10 points, while answering a question they receive 10 points back.
David Semerad, founder of The Game, explained that:
In general, I think the chemistry between two people is much more complicated than a mathematical algorithm. People should decide on their own whether there is chemistry between them.
Semerad states that the app is a “less stressful way of dating.” If a conversation doesn’t work out, then the person can move on to start another game with someone else. The app is currently available for free on iOS and Android devices.
