A dating app for literal monsters exposes the bias in our swipes

TwitterFacebook

Sure, online dating is a hellscape. But in this new online dating game, that’s a good thing.

Developer Ben Berman and designer Miguel Perez created a game that seeks to expose the inherent bias that fuels dating app matching algorithms. The pair are winners of Mozilla’s Creative Media Awards, which enabled the work.

The best part of the game, besides the admirable mission and all, is that the game is based around a dating app — for monsters.

Get the Atari Flashback 8 games console with 105 games for under £20

TwitterFacebook

Gaming is an expensive hobby. First, you need to drop at least a couple of hundred pounds on a console, and then the games are likely to set you back about £30 each. We don’t need to tell you that it quickly adds up.

Even if you’re smart and opt for bundle deals or wait for sales, you are still going to be out of pocket before too long. That is unless you go old-school and purchase a classic games console like the Atari Flashback 8.

Instead of rolling the dice on a device that hasn’t yet reached the level of integrity you’re usually comfortable with, why not get something that’s tried and true? Something you know isn’t going to burst into flames upon boot-up.
