Tinder will launch an interactive movie where users with similar responses can match
The popular dating application Tinder will launch its television series for the internet, with an interactive apocalyptic story in which users can choose the destination of the plot by sliding through several options, the American weekly Variety reported Tuesday.
The story will be “choose your own adventure” mode and will follow a group of characters that face the end of the world under the question ” who would you spend your last night alive with? “.
Users will be able to access the series from the Tinder application, and the way they will decide the fate of the protagonists will be the same in which they already select their favorite profiles for appointments: Sliding left or right.
According to Variety, the production of fiction has just finished, with more than two hours of content that is expected to be released in October.
Fuentes de Tinder, whose headquarters is located in West Hollywood (California), declined to give the Efe agency more details about the launch of the series and the countries in which it will be available.
The project, still without a title, will feature six episodes shot in Mexico City and directed by Karena Evans, who has worked on music videos for rapper Drake, including the viral hit “In My Feelings.”
The series is intended to be viewed in vertical format from the smartphone screen and to be a shared experience among Tinder users, as an algorithm will link users who have chosen similar options in the plot to propose potential meetings.
In early September, Tinder fell on the New York Stock Exchange after Facebook announced the launch in the United States of its platform, “Dating”, for the same purpose.
The social media giant presented its application, which will enter Tinder’s competition, as a platform to help its users “find love” in the social network.
Netflix released the movie “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch” at the end of 2018, with an interactive narrative. It was not the first experiment of the streaming platform with the stories that allow the user to make decisions about the characters or certain situations before he did it with the children’s series “Puss in Boots” and “Buddy Thunderstruck”, both of 2017.
In “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch” the viewer watched the movie and they were asking questions whose answers changed the course of the story, so there was more than one story. The questions appeared at a time when the protagonist was going to make a generally relevant decision.
However, one of the main criticisms was that the user was not so free to make decisions because when he was “wrong” he was given a warning if he wanted to change his decision. HBO also had a similar story mode with “Mosaic, which looked like a mystery and murder game.
Although Tinder revealed few details of his interactive film to Variety, he related the next content to be released with the purpose of the application that is to meet people with similar affinities, so it can be expected that this time people will be free to choose about The course of the story.
